Easy and fast check-in by friendly staff. Not warm, but friendly enough. The room was spacious and clean, great water pressure in the shower (which is a big thing for me). They offered a crib for the baby but we didn't need it, and it might have been a bit tight in the room if we did have it. Within... More

Having flown into Hualien from Taipei, we took a taxi to the hotel ($250) and even though the room wasn't ready, we were allowed to leave our bags, which were subsequently taken to our room when we were out. First impressions were of a tidy room, with a nice bathroom, drink making facilities plus 2 bags of crisps which was... More

The staffs are very friendly and helpful. They even helped to take our luggage in without us asking. That made us feel welcome right away. The room decor is very simple but quite spacious and clean. It was a comfy short stay. Location is quite convenient. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay while in... More

Big rooms, very comfortable bed, nice bathroom, wifi, safe, kettle, hairdryer, toiletries, all provided. 15minute walk to the Zhongzhen/Zhonghua/Zhongshan triangle. Free railway shuttle on request. Basic English at front desk. Breakfast too limited and too cold! Turn on the bain-maries, please!

Stayed here in mid December last year. Booked through their website which bundled a room together with a tour of Taroko Gorge. The rooms are not bad, but the breakfast in my opinion was bad. That being said, however, it is right next to a huge shopping complex and a convenience store so it is close to such vital amenities.... More

Only managed to secure a reservation for 1 night as their triple room is too popular. This is one of the few hotels in Hualien that offers a triple room option. It's my 2nd visit to the hotel, and as usual, it did not disappoint. In the lobby itself is Internet access, the staff are always excellently polite and friendly.... More

The room and bathrooms were a bit dated. The bathroom was not properly cleaned and smelled musty. Breakfast was sufficient (in my opinion) but more suited to Asian palates. Reception staff was helpful and we really appreciated the free transfer to the train station. For the price we paid, we got 3 single beds and the room was quite big... More

We were picking up at the train station by their friendly staff. They make the arrangement for rental car and local tour for us. It was a short 2, 3 days trip but we had great time. Breakfast was Okayed, not much western style. Adding waffle and pancakes will be a plus.
