“Ah Jie Minsu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

There are altogether 3 guest rooms in this 3-story house owned by a family. The first level is the common area were guests can gather and have breakfast in the hall. The top two levels are where the guests can stay. The owners themselves occupy the master bedroom on the second level with their two children.

The rooms are themed, and guests choose the kinds of rooms they want according to the number of people. The three-bedder is a teddy bear theme, with one princess double bed and one single bed. The walls are painted purple, giving it a cozy and romantic feel. There is a small balcony that overlooks the mountains afar.

The two-bedder which can be for two people or a single traveler has green walls and is made up of two mattress, just like the Japanese futon. On the walls are pictures of cartoon monkeys.

The third room is the biggest room and is a Doraemon theme. It is blue and consists of two double beds. There is also an overhead platform inside the room making it look very playful and inviting. This is very suitable for families with children.

All rooms have attached bathroom.

Room rates are very affordable too. For the room rates, please refer to the website: http://oldersister.idv.tw/

Guests are offered free breakfast for one day, and there is a menu consisting of sandwiches, spaghetti, panfried carrot cake and various types of drinks including coffee and soya bean drink (dou jiang).

More importantly, the houseowners are very warm and helpful people. We were not required to pay any deposit or any funds to reserve the room. It was indeed nice for the owners to trust us. The owners were also very willing to offer advise on Hualien attractions, purchase of train tickets and guide hire.
