“Cozy hotel in convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Picked this hotel because of location and it did not disappoint. Front desk staff was helpful and welcoming and even showed us to our room. We stayed in a family room which was quite alright for 4 persons. The bathroom has no lock so we must take note not to intrude if any one is in the toilet. Coffee/chinese tea and biscuits provided all day on the 2nd floor as well as at the lobby which was a nice gesture on the part of management. Breakfast was buffet style. Just down the road, you can find MacDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, Starbucks etc. Near to hotel is the city center where they have lots of shops and eateries. Do remember to ask front desk for a map of surrounding area. We took a taxi to the Zhi Qiang night market. It had lots of food stalls. I liked the barbeque stall especially at the first row. A tip given by the cab driver was to ask how long does one have to wait before picking your items and getting a number. Take a walk around the place before coming back to pick up your bbq items. The wait can be as long as an hour. The fried oyster egg and smelly tofu just a few stalls away from the bbq was also very good.

Staff were very helpful to provide info on the tourist attractions & we were even pick up from the train station upon arrival with the help of the Tourist Information Centre staff beside the train station. Room was very neat, clean & spacious. Breakfast was much better than the other hotels in Taipei. Hotel was very near the shopping strip of Hualien.

Room Tip: Twin bedded room is very comfortable

We stayed one night in the family room.
Chose the hotel for its location near to street eats and shops.
Because we were 3adults, we took the family room with two double beds because I believe the hotel does not provide rollaway for the twin/double rooms.
Special comment to Ms Zoe Chang, the front desk staff who answered my numerous email enquiries and phone calls prior to our stay.
Very big family room given on the top floor like I've requested and a huge toilet with shower over bath.
Can see some wear and tear,scuff marks,a bit of mould on the seals around the bathtub but overall quite clean.
Hotel provides charcoal bamboo water and some snacks from Hualien region in the room.
Breakfast is buffet style and consists of Taiwanese vegetables with the usual condiments, eggs and stir fried vegetables.
There are also toast and cereals for the western palate.
The hotel provides free transport to and from Hualien train station but you need to prebook.
Overall, a positive stay at this hotel!

this has all the fancy trimmings of a boutique hotel but you can still feel the countryside of Hualien ie. perhaps due to the open spaces behind the hotel, the relaxed pace of the lobby and staff, the mountain wind that blows through the windows, etc.. the family suite was surprisingly spacious, the free wifi in the room strong, the black charcoal complimentary water was a big hit with my parents, the breakfast had a few nice dishes, the bathroom had a spa atmosphere although must say the shower in a bathtub design is not a good idea for older folks especially since to get in it was quite high.. the staff were courteous but a bit reticent ie.didn't go out of their way to offer their service.. however the driver they recommended to take us on a day trip to Taroko Gorge was fantastic; he really took the effort and time to show us around and gave his own little personal tour.. the location is superb; just next to all the modern eateries in town plus a short walk to the heart of Hualien shopping district..

Room Tip: Go for the mountain view rooms which incidentally face east - the afternoon sun may be hot as the ro...

My family of 4, wife, self and 2 adult children took the family suite with 2 double beds. Spacious room with well-appointed attached bathroom, breakfast on the second floor, coffee available any time on the house. Staff friendly,and location ideal with restaurants and bars on Hualien's main drag which runs parallel to the street on which the hotel is located. It is 10 minutes by taxi to the railway station.

This hotel is great - I only wish there were more like it elsewhere. What is great about it is that it is great value for money, very clean, modern and comfortable. If you are the type of person who just wants a nice room rather than paying for all the extras such as gym and pool and fancy lobby that you don't use then this is the place for you. It is a smallish hotel. I strongly recommend the King Executive on top floor, then no noise from above (I booked the top floor based on others who said there was noise if below). It only costs $3 for taxi from station to hotel so don't worry about not having hotel transfer included. Also once in Hualien youl will be offered to hire taxi for the day for around TN2500 to go to Taroko Gorge etc. The breakfast is fine. The hotel staff don't speak a lot of English, but it is enough to get around. I would highly recommend staying here - value for money is good, and contact the hotel directly for their special deals if you stay more than one night. Wireless internet is free and fast too.
