“The location is not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The hotel staff is very sincere and helpful, but their english is not very good. It may cause some kind of discomfort. The place is quiet for sleeping, but you have to take a cab to go to the centre or railway station. Breakfast menu is good quality and delicious. Huge tourist groups are coming in the evenings (3-5buses) which leave the next morning. So at a specific time in the morning there is a lot of people having breakfast. It could be closer to the city centre.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We were in Hualien in between 2 of the recent typhoons in Taiwan, but apart from a bit more rain, didn't really affect our trip. When we stepped into the lobby of Ocean Hyaline hotel, there were at least 3 or 4 hotel staff around waiting to help us unload luggage and help us check in. There is also a basement carpark, with the entrance across the road but it connects directly to the hotel in the basement, which was great during the rainy period.

The room was of quite good size, even with a triple layout. It may have been just the only room (*02) where the length of the room was parallel to the hotel corridor. This meant that there was quite a big space between the beds to the bathroom, but it also meant that the TV was mounted on the wall far away from the beds. So it wasn't the best position to watch TV from the bed, and there was only 1 chair in the room.

We were short of 1 towel in the bathroom, so when this was brought to the housekeeper's attention, 2 of the hotel staff promptly arrived within 5 minutes, bearing not just the towel, but also a whole set of toiletries and an extra bottle of mineral water as well.

Breakfast in the hotel's restaurant was so-so with not much variety, and the bacon and sausages looked a bit dubious. It was also quite crowded as there was a busload of tourists having their breakfast also before leaving.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

This hotel was booked by our travel agent, Have Fun Travel, for the final night of our tour of Taiwan. We had taken a train from Kaohsiung and were tired, but we needed to check in and find something to eat. The staff was very helpful - one of the staff even walked us to a nearby restaurant when we didn't understand the directions. The hotel is a bit dated, as we found most hotels in Taiwan to be, but our room was in good condition and clean.
