“Nice and Quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I stayed for two nights at ola hotel with my family of four including two young children. What I liked most is the the location. It is by the sea. It is quiet, which allows for a good nights rest. It has an in house cafe/restaurant which serves family friendly meals ( cod fish with rice !) and has child seats. It has self service laundry facilities. And it has great staff. The view is marred by the fact of its proximity to the Hualian port but that proved to be of little concern. Transport was convenient. The front office would very efficiently assist in calling for a cab. Directions to major places of interest were also readily provided. The room was comfortable with all the necessary amenities including kettle, fridge, and a desk. I found the breakfast sufficient and very locally oriented. This place had been recommended by relatives who are native to Taiwan and I found myself being pleasantly surprised. If food variety is what one is looking for, then of course the cafe cannot match the variety at the night markets. But it is clean comfortable with a very helpful staff. There was also a drinking water dispenser which reduced the need to boil water for those that eschews direct from tap. All in all a pleasant and recommended stay.

Very outdated rooms, though the hotel faces the open sea, but there was a stone mining activity right infront of the hotel across the road. The noise of work out there will keep waking you up the whole night. And finally we found out that the window was not locked (it's not locked before we checked in!). The breakfast is worse than any breakfast stands in the city!
