“Spacious room, next to shopping area, strong wifi...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Room was very spacious, comfortable bed, able to sleep well compared to the other hotels we stayed in Taipei during this trip.
Strong wifi, breakfast was better than the other places we stayed in Taipei/Cingjing during this trip but don't expect American breakfast, this is Taiwan. Happy about choosing this hotel in Hualien as taxis do not ply the streets, hotel is next to shopping district. Staff were polite. Will stay there again if going to Hualien.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

I booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews, and I was not disappointed.

Pros:
- well located, 3 minutes walk from the popular 'triangle' of city center shops
- good WiFi signal in the room
- very nice room for a very fair price
- they gave me free ride to the train station upon check out (rather than pay a taxi)
- front desk staff were eager to help with my touristic plan (thought it was challenging since they don't speak English. We used Google Translate to communicate)
- fair breakfast to those who eat oriental food
- free computer connected to the Internet in the lobby

Cons:
- staff speak very little English
- poor breakfast for those who eat just Western food
- note that the sign outside the hotel does not say 'Easttown 26" but rather something else ("The King Chen's"), so it might be confusing to find the place

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The room is spacious and clean, nothing fancy about the hotel, but it suit with my needs (including breakfast and super fast wi-fi connection). Spent 2 night in Hualien just went around the city and Taroko Gorge. The staff, as other in Taiwan, were really friendly and helpful. A bit turn off, since they want us to move us to different hotel nearby, since there are big group coming on. However, as we refused (since they asked us 10 minutes before our pick up cab arrive for Taroko trip), they understand and didn't push any further. For the price, the service and other thing was good.

This is a great hotel. The front desk staffs are very friendly and helpful. This hotel is located at Hua Lian downtown. You can get a lot of restaurant and shops within walking distance.

The room is spacious and clean. The bed is comfortable and the cable TV program provided is with a wide variety of choice. There is heater in the room as it is really difficult to find in most of the Taiwanese hotel.

The breakfast is great though those are congees with some typical Taiwanese side dishes.

I will definitely come to this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you got the address in mandarin as this hotel is not well known by most of the taxi driver...
