“A little oasis in Hualien.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I really enjoyed my stay at Fanlin House (1 night). After a day walking in the nearby (spectacular) Taroko National Park, this lovely little hotel felt like an oasis. The manager was very helpful, and spoke excellent English. He not only recommended a great vegetarian restaurant in Hualien - he also drove us there and back! The room was very comfortable and clean, with a coffee maker and toiletries provided. Breakfast was cooked to our order, and was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Taroko and Hualien. One note, no bottled water was provided so be sure to bring your own.

Fanlin House is a cozy B&B just outside of Hualien. The rooms are very nicely decorated, with dark wood and original designs. Ryan, the hotel manager, is a wonderful guy. He took care of everything we needed and more, we really felt at home! The breakfast was also great.

This is a nice place to stay if you like to be away from the town. Quiet place with lots of.charm with beautiful garden and nice dogs and cat. The staff are hospitable, thoughtfil and helpful. The configuration of our room for 5 is like a tree house which my children loved climbing up and down the room and to the upper deck bed.

Fanlin House proved to be an excellent location.The hotel is very pretty with natural wood decor. Very artistic use of different woods throughout the accommodation, coat hangers are very artistic. Good breakfast provided and English is spoken. Property is located out of town but easily accessible. Natural sounds of the bullfrogs in the nearby pond breaks the countryside silence but no real problem when having a relaxing sleep.

Room Tip: We booked a 3 person room which was ideal with an upper bedroom on mezzanine floor. Good clean show...

We stayed at Fanlin for one night in July 2013.
Our room was appealing, had a nice little balcony and an ensuite.
The staff were very friendly and Ryan speaks excellent English, so this is a good choice for non-Mandarin speakers travelling in Hualien and looking for a good home stay.
Tasty breakfast too.
