The room we had had a really nice view of the ocean. Everything in the room was spick and span. The breakfast was very filling with a lot of good food choices available. All in all it was a lovely stay. The only thing that I felt was a bit lacking was the attitude of the receptionist upon our arrival.... More

The majority of reviews appear to be from ASEAN visitors and relatively few from Europeans. However this is an excellent little hotel which lives up to all the very positive reviews. It is clean, bright, efficient and excellently placed on the beach. From our point of view vastly preferable to those that we saw 'downtown'. The staff were without exception... More

Communication with Juan was incredibly easy and so was making a reservation. We organised a driver through Juan, confirmed the train we were on and he was nothing but helpful. We arrived mid-day and the location is really kind of random. It's not your typical seaside resort (at least not for me as a European although we've been in Asia... More

First Thank you so much for all your help Juan. It's from your new North York (Canada) friends. Hope your brother had a good time in Hualien. After researching quite a bit, we finally decided to stay at Hotel Bayview based on its location and good reviews it received. We were definitely not disappointed. The location cannot be any better,... More

We spent 3 nights in Hualien, one of which was in this little hotel near the beach. Booked the seaview room with no balcony. The room is good sized, bed is big and comfy, and bathroom very good sized too (with an incredibly tiny bath tub in there). Owners contacted us via email as soon as booking was made to... More

From time of arrival to departure, the hotel staff treated us like royalty. Opening doors, handling luggage with a smile, booking us cabs, enquiring whether we need advise on places to visit. The hotel was bright and cheerfully decorated. It was such a delight waking up to the sound of the sea. The free well maintained bikes were great fun.... More

Peaceful place away from Hualien city. Hotel gives free to and fro shuttle, friendly service. A night will do as not much to do around there. Dogs barking gave us a restless sleep but hotel itself is comfortable. Open the windows and you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

We were greeted by a "staff" from the hotel with warm welcome the moment we stepped out of Hualien train station. He swiftly drove us to the hotel and we were further greeted by the friendly and courteous hotel staffs. We later found out that the "staff" who picked us up from the train station was in fact the owner... More

When we reached the hotel at 4pm after spending the day in Taroko Gorge, and leaving taipei at 7am, they couldn't find my booking. I then found that I had inadvertently booked for the following month and to top it off, the hotel was fully booked. The manager immediately offered us the family suite, 2 massive rooms with enough room... More
