“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Since Hualien is more rural, I went there without expectations. The room was pretty basic. There was no wifi, but they had tv on demand, which I thought was good enough for entertainment.

Wasn't impressed with the breakfast.

Security is poor because the door only has a latch. There is no safe box either.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I stayed in A star with a tour group in March 2013. The hotel room is badly furnished with old furniture, bath room is equally bad with low quality bathroom accessories (sink, shower, WC). Bed is reasonable though. Does not feel like a 3 or 4 star hotel by any standards. The breakfast provided by the hotel is not palatable at all. The selection is minimal and the food looks like the least appealing. Hotel faces the ocean though which is the only thing probably i think could save the hotel from a 1 star rating. Hotel is 3 min walk from a convenience store as well. Will not recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We came for the AMD race, and this hotel was perfectly situation right in front of the starting point. It's located away from the town centre of Hualien but it's easy enough to cab to town. There were a few restaurants within walking distances, the Korean one we went to was quite nice. There's a 7-11 just up the road a some bubble tea shops as well.

The view from our room was partially blocked by the wall in front but from the balcony we could still glimpse out to the sea. The room was very big as we had requested a 3 person room, so it had a living room with coffee table and chairs facing the TV, then a divider that separated the bedroom, which had a sofa bed as well.

The hotel is a little dated but still clean and comfortable. Everything in the room worked and there was no strange odour or unidentified objects. All basic amenities were available (TV, fridge, kettle, hair dryer etc). And the Wi-fi connection was good.

Breakfast was the typical Chinese/Western fare, which was not bad at all considering they had to feed so many cyclists and support crew. The steamed buns were in steamers so were not soggy like the ones they have in a glass steam cupboard you see in some local Taiwanese joints. Overall a good experience.

Reasonably priced hotel which was very comfotable for a backpacker to catch up on sleep. Located to the cultural stuff I wanted too see. Very affordable but still pretty nice for the price.
