“The most stylish stay I had so far..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

First hotel for my first trip to Taiwan. Simple description is the stay was lovely with minimum hiccups.

My friends and I were welcomed with the privilege to select the room we prefer to stay in. Really nice concept though it may not work in bigger scale hotel. This is because each and every room in the hotel is different.

Registration was done quickly and we proceed to the rooms.

Rooms are rather spacious and artistic! Well decorated with furnished with the basic amenities you need.

Our bathroom comes with translucent partition but was still ok. Can't really see what's going on in the bathroom from outside. =)

Breakfast was simple and great to start the day running.

Location is a short 5 mins was from the train station. Staff are very helpful to provide tips and suggest places for us to visit. Something not so tourist.

The only downside is that we saw a few mosquitoes flying around the room. The walls are white hence you can see blurred blood stains of dead mosquitoes.

Room Tip: Bring some mosquitoes repellent as there are a few tiny bit flying around the room.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

Each room comes with a unique design which clients could choose from the pictures during check-in. Clean room comfortable bed, free Internet in room. The staff are very friendly and helpful (actually I find most Taiwanese establishments very friendly). Breakfast was delicious but rather light for me. Within walking distance to the MRT red and orange line from which one could get to the airport, high-speed rail, railway station and most tourist attractions in Kaohsiung.

Room Tip: Get there early to choose your favourable room design. I got a room with no windows when I arrived...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
With a natural and seemingly accidental presence The Icon Hotel is situated in a corner of the popular XinJueJiang Shopping District. Adjacent to the ever so elegant Central Park metro station, and across the tree-canopy-clad Minsheng Rd., is a simply classic structure full of creative twists.We chose white as our foundation and embellished it with vibrant brushstrokes. Through the creative efforts of numerous artists from around the globe, beyond language and cultural barriers, boundless imagination is materialized in 36 dimensions.Humorous originality frolics in every corner of the hotel as we hope that at every turn of the corner you might let out an occasional chuckle. The Icon is creativity, it is art, and it is a lifestyle. With a humble and low-key attitude we have shattered the traditional impressions of motels, inns, and hotels. Here at The Icon we have orchestrated a visually and aesthetically pleasing feast.The Icon creativityUniquely craftedWe are The Icon! ... more   less
