We chose this hotel because it was of a pretty reasonable price. Our adventure started at hualien train station when we checked that the hotel was only 2.2km away from the station so we decided to walk over with our luggages. TIP: Call a taxi. There are many taxis at the train station, just hop on one. The hotel is... More

We stayed at the Marshal Hotel in Hualien recently. The hotel has obviously been around for quite a while and is beginning to show its age but the price that we paid reflects this. The best thing about the hotel is the location - close to the market, shops and restaurants. The reception staff were very helpful and assisted us... More

We booked the hotel with a bug discount. For the price we paid (approx. 45€/night) the hotel was decent. The rooms are a bit outdated but fully functional (aircon, flatscreen, English channels, hot shower). As with many hotels in Taiwan the focus is on Asian guests therefore the European breakfast was quite limited. The location is quite convenient for shops,... More

Perhaps we arrived in a bad time for the hotel staff, no smile, no greetings but strange looks on their faces by all front desk staff and bell boys. The hallways on our floor were so dark because all nights were turned off. Our room was quite room and so I lower the air temperature from 26 to 22'C. After... More

Front desk here is awful. Useless and lazy...it's a tour group hotel, so they don't really care about the customers. When we got to our floor, all of the hallway lights were turned off, and we were expected to turn them on ourselves. I've been to youth hostels nicer than this hotel with better customer service. Rooms are dated, need... More

Clean, value-priced hotel. Very good, quick service. However, the bathrooms are pretty dated, and there was a sudden 40-minute power outage in the morning. While the property has been refurnished, it hasn't lost its early-80s vibe. My safe wasn't working. If a major chain got a hold of this place, it could actually be something great.

Nicely located. Modernized rooms. (Could tell that it was renovated). Bathrooms felt older. Free good wifi. First room had heavy cigarette smoke smell, but they immediately moved us to room next door which was fine. Though hallway still smelled like cigarettes. (Non smoking hotel). Breakfast buffet not so good. Coffee bad. Small fruit selection. Salad??

We were very lucky to stay in the suite of this hotel and paid about US$115 per night. We stayed for 2 nights. I booked the triple room and maybe the hotel run out of triple rooms when we checked in. It was very huge and comfortable. Count my blessings that I got the suite instead. The location was quite... More
