“Excellent, friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

A really nice hotel with good clean rooms. A comfortable bed and a very relaxed atmosphere. We explained to the staff that we were vegetarian and the made a real effort to stop us eating food that we thought was ok! They made us a separate breakfast on the second morning which was a nice surprise. The breakfast buffet was a little limited in choice but given the price of the hotel pretty reasonable.

In contrast to the small rooms in Taipei, Hualien - Beauty Stay offers large (2x) size rooms, comfortable beds, river view and breakfast included. They also have 6-7 bikes for guests to use to cycle around very bicycle friendly Hualien.

Service: Most pleasant, friendly helpful. Top marks. Only negative is that the 2nd floor rooms are walk up. No elevator. Good breakfast with Western and Asian food.

Value: Very good value as its easily a 4 star hotel

Sleep quality: excellent, quiet, good airconditioning (it's summer), clean sheets. Firm bed.

Cleanliness: As with all the hotels we stayed in Taipei - very clean.

Location: It's within walking distance to the station, about 15 min, but a taxi ride will cost you NT$100 only. Near a river, less traffic, center of Hualien which means you can go east and west to the other locations quite easily. Taroko gorge bus terminal is next to the railway station. Food outlets nearby.

Rooms: Excellent rooms, would stay again.

Swimming pool n fitness center: Non

Room Tip: We were offered a non-river view room for the first night but promised an upgrade for the remaining...

Our stay was very appreciated in Hualien, thanks to the very friendly and helpful staff of this hotel. The bicycles available for free to ride on the neighboring tracks and the proposed tour with driver of the Taroko gorge were also great. The only bad points were the limited size of the room and the average-grade breakfast.

Super great hotel. The location was about 15 min walk from the train station or 5 min cab ride.

The staff were amazing there. They have a map of the area and recommend a bunch of delicious restaurants and cool places to see. You can rent the bikes which were in good condition and came with locks. They helped us book our next hotel and figure out the train station. They recommend wongs tea house to eat and it was great. The hotel has a hot pot place beside which you get a free drink if you say you are staying with the hotel.

Clean rooms and good location.

This hotel is excellent. Great value for customers and great service. My wife and I love the stay here. The rooms were clean, free wifi and the breakfast was reasonable. Great value for money.

The best thing about the hotel was the excellent service. Highly commendable!

we found this hotel through internet and decided to go for it because we saw the parquet-floor on the pictures as it is ideal for people having asthma or allergy (easy to clean). After a stay of 2 nights we can definitively recommend the Beauty Stay for several reasons :
-room (2 double bed) is big, bright and very clean as well as the bathroom
-staff is very friendly and helpful (although we needed to leave very early, before breakfast time, the cook still manage to prepare basic breakfast , boxes for take-away and water for the children)
-lovely terrasse on the side of the hotel ideal for evening drinks (no bar but go for 7eleven nearby) and internet browsing (free wifi even outside the building)
-hotel is on an intersection but the streets are quiet
-little park with a small fountain in front of the hotel, nice restaurant next to hotel
-not too far from train station
-you can use hotel free bikes (not too many but still)
-no elevator but it is only few stairs
-very nice and modern decoration in the side lounge

Room Tip: no room on street level, wheelchairs not recommanded

This place is great value and the staff was great. After checking out, we had a full day of river tracing and got back to the hotel. They organized a room for us (6 people) to shower and clean up prior to our 6pm train. The rooms are nice. The location is convenient to the train station and it's easy to get around Hualien in cabs. We never had to wait more than 5 mins for a cab after the staff called.

Room Tip: There's no elevator, so be sure to ask for a ground floor room if you have trouble with stairs...
