They have nice clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, very nice breakfast buffet even an alarm on the door should anyone try to open the door when you're asleep. The... More

Not sure why its called Charming City, but we did enjoy the few hours we had here. Only enough time for dinner at nearby restuarant and then late night walk down the main shopping street. It is a unique aspect of life in Asia that shops are open and people are about till at least 10pm. The mild weather was... More

Very easy to find as it is very close to the Railway Station. The hotel is clean and staff are helpful, the rooms and the hotel itself are a little dated. There is wifi in each room and they give you a code when you arrive. The location is great if you want to be next to the station but... More

About 10 mins walk from the Hualien Train Station - a nice hotel, although the exterior and interior of the hotel is slightly run down - their is a small arcade game centre in the basement of the hotel. Free coffee and biscuits are provided for hotel guests at the lobby area, WIFI available only at common areas.

We stayed in this hotel for one night. It was a 10 minute walk away from the Hualien train station and very easy to find. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. They provided us with information and options regarding our tour of the Taroko Gorge. We were leaving the next afternoon on a flight to Kaohsiung and they... More

We stayed at this hotel in Hualien for 2 nights. It's a short, quick walk from the Hualien TRA Station. The Taiwan Tourist Bus which goes to Taroko Gorge also stops at the train station, so the hotel location was perfect for us.
