Taipei

1) Park Royal Hotel (4N)
2) Wan Tai Hotel (2N)

Both are okay 3*. Note as you are going to stay in Wantai for 2 nights, you dont have to go to Wufenpu and Raohe Street first as they are at your doorstep.

Kaoshiong

1) Gear Hotel (2N)
Haven't heard of it. Please let us have your review, cost e.t.c. uponyour return
Taizhong

1) Marshal Hotel (1N)
Okay
