We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. It was delightful. We were received and picked up by the hotel staff from Hualien Train Station free of charge at night. They greeted us warmly and arranged for our bags to be sent to our room. The room was big, clean and comfortable for 2 of us. They had all the usual amenities expected of good hotels. Breakfast spread was good and delicious. Best of all, it was low peak season so no crowds.
Where we were located, near the main street of Hualien, we could walk 8 min to the Rainbow Night Market (mostly simple game stores plus outdoor dining, quite deserted and not worth your time unless you want to eat dinner), 5 min to the clothing shopping street (fabulous finds for children's clothing at 100TWD per shirt/pants), 3 min to the souvenir stores (we bought seafood snacks and stock for making soup), tried famous Hualien food like bian shi (wanton) and mua chee (mochi) with different stuffings. I would suggest avoiding the large restaurant (indoor plus outdoor dining, looks catered to tourists) near the hotel and eat tzechar (stir frys) at Rainbow Night Market. We paid high prices eating at the restaurant (we had bird's nest fern, sliced fish and wild deer). I am sure we could have had a similar meal at half the prices at Rainbow Night Market.
