“Good service & very modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Charming City is a modern and very good service hotel. we (5) were there in this early spring, March 2012. We booked twin room for parents and 4 person's room for us and kid. We had great impression about this hotel during our trip in Hwalian and the neighbour cities. This hotel is clean and modern compare to other hotels in this area. personally I like the bathroom design and the service attitude in this hotel. The food here is average and the view is just kind of boring, sorry to say this way but We will definitely recommend the family and friends visit this Hotel. For business and family , it will be a good choice for your short stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2011

Stayed in Charming City Hotel in Hualien for 2 nights. My friends and I were given vouchers for a free glass of red wine per pax. Room was spacious, clean and neat. The view from our room was brilliant! Mountains with cloud in the background, really beautiful... The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly.

However, the location of the hotel isn't ideal even though it is near the train station as going to the city center would take up some time. Hence, I would suggest that booking a tour guide/driver for a day would be an excellent choice if one would like to tour around Hualien. As for breakfast, it is buffet style but mostly Asian cuisine. There is also a separate menu where guests can choose from but with limited choices.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

Comfortable hotel, the room was fairly spacious and the staff were very smiling and friendly. We were both given free vouchers for a glass of red wine or an ice-cream for the two evenings we stayed.
I think that the main issue with deciding on whether or not to stay in this hotel would be location. It's very close to the train station - less than a 5 minute walk. However this means that the town centre with the largest choice of shops and restaurants is about 30 minutes away - although there are shops and restaurants near the hotel.
Breakfast was a disappointment - very Asian, with little for the non-Asian taste.
