we stayed there after our visit to the Taroko Gorge. The hotel is around 1 hour from the Gorge. It is very close to the downtown area and the night market. The hotel provides bikes for rental which we took for a few hours to discover the downtown and go to the night market which is around 20 minutes biking from the hotel (5 minutes cab ride).
The rooms are spacious and clean. There is also free WiFi. The breakfast is ok (although dominated by chinese options; not very tourist friendly).
The biggest problem we had is the lack of English language speaking staff even in the reception. communicating took more effort than usual. It would have been much easier if there was more english language proficiency. However, despite of that, one of the reception staff organized for us a private car and driver to take us around Hualien in a half day tour which was really nice.
