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.

This is my 1st visit to Hualien, Taipei. Been doing lots of research and finally find this little place which really make my stay enjoyable even just for a night. I reach taipei in late evening and have to catch a train at 9pm to travel down to hualien which took us about 2hrs for the ride. I gave the... More

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

This hotel is located at the qixing tan beach which is 10 min drive from the hualien main city area. You may arrange with the hotel for free pickup service from the train station. There is a family mart nearby and a small restaurant at a corner. Room is top notched and all i can say is you pay for... More

Hualien is on the East coast of Taiwan, and one can choose to stay in town near the local attractions, or stay North on the road to Taroko Gorge. If staying outside of town, only makes sense to stay at Hotel Bayview, about 10 minutes from town. Spend a little extra and get a room with a view, after all... More

We feel very welcome when we arrived at the hotel. Juan had been very helpful even during all email enquiries. He speaks excellent English. Hotel offers free bikes to ride along the beach. You can watch sunrise from beach and fisherman pull their catch off the beach.

I stayed 2 nights in the sea-facing room, which I highly recommend as the view is wonderful, despite the sunrise being blocked by a nearby minsu. I loved the amenities at the hotel. Guests can rent bicycles for free and do the seaside bike trail. Ask the hotel about the cycling directions to Yuan Ye Mu Chang which sells goat... More
