C'est Jeune is located about ten minutes (by cab) from the train station in a nondescript, quiet neighborhood of Hualien. The neighborhood has a few very small noodle shops and a larger Japanese restaurant, but dining choices in the area are quite limited
We asked, via an email sent several days in advance, for the hotel to collect us at the train station. When no one appeared we had to call the hotel. They promptly sent a cab. I asked the front desk attendant about this lapse and he candidly admitted, "We received your email, but no one read it."
This is a small hotel with only a handful of rooms on each floor. The guest rooms are also small, but quiet and comfortable. The housekeeping was adequate with the exception of the carpets, which were tracked, dirty and stained. There is complementary Internet service by means of a cable obtained from the front desk. The hotel has a no smoking policy, but the lobby, corridors and elevators were often filled with cigarette smoke.
The beds are quite comfortable, so in combination with a peaceful setting and good air conditioning we had a great night's sleep. Breakfast is cheerfully delivered to your room at a time of your choosing. There are four options to choose from. It's not a big breakfast, but it was surprisingly appetizing.
When I return to Hualien, I will probably select a hotel in a more central location, but the C'est Jeune is fine-- if they would only clean their carpets.
