Set against the backdrop of beautiful mountain scenery this is a very relaxing spot on the outer edge of Hualien City. Room was good size, bright and airy feel with small balcony for relaxing. Furnishings are more on the homey side as opposed to the ultra-modern feel I got in all my other Taiwanese city excursions. Breakfast included was a... More

Friendly receptionist that stayed till 12am to wait for us to check in even though her work ended at 1030pm. Boss gave us a free drive to the train station with his car :D Spacious room and bathroom with free toiletries. Short walk to ziqiang night market but far from city.

We got room 301, which had a swing on the balcony. Nice and clean environment, but we only stayed one night, so it's hard to say anything much about the place to do it justice. Staff were very nice and friendly. Breakfast was simple but filling.

A very nice place to stay. Rooms were large and spacious, and the owner with staff was very helpful in giving us tips and ideas for our stay here. Although a bit far from the city center, Zhiqiang Night Market is within walking distance. Getting taxi transportation further south can be difficult though, since the drivers rarely speak good english

We stayed here for 2 nights. We arranged for the minsu to take us from the Hualien train station (cost TWD100 only). We arrived at about 1.00 pm and the minsu staff asked if we wanted to have lunch as she could arrange for delivery service for a lunch box for us. The lunch box comprised local rice, stewed chicken,... More

Booked the room on top floor for a night through Agoda.com and the whole booking process including payment went smoothly. We personally had bad experience to find the homestay due to confusion between Mingzhi street right OFF Zhongshan road & Mingzhi road that is OFF ZhongYan road (central road), both Mingzhi are spelled the same alphabetically but they are different...

Stayed in a room with a mountain view. In terms of location, it is close to the Zhiqiang night market but quite from from the "golden triangle" shopping belt (there is not much to shop in Hualien by the way). The minsu owners can give you a ride to those busier areas for a token some (cheaper than taxi). I... More

This is the first time we stayed in this B&B. The B&B is clean, pretty and very affordable. It is located nearby city center. The room has a queen size bed which offers you a good night sleep. Very nice homemade breakfast and friendly host. There is also a night market nearby, very convenient when you want to have some... More
