I stayed one night here as a stop-over for a trip to Taroko Gorge. I had picked up the youth travel card for Taiwan and this hotel was advertised at a large discount. I decided to take a break from hostelling and pay a bit extra for a good night's sleep. The man at the tourist info center at Hualien station called the hotel and reserved the room for me and then the hotel sent a taxi to pick me up at no charge. The woman at the front desk was extremely friendly. I was amazed at how much I was getting for my money. The hotel is very clean and they offer breakfast served in the room. I was getting up to catch a 6:40 bus, and they had my breakfast packed and ready to take at 6:10. The room was nice and had everything I needed, with a very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, TV and mini fridge. The room was hot and I wasn't able to turn on the air conditioning, so I had the window open for awhile. I was on the 4th floor, but there was a fair amount of street noise. The location is very convenient to "downtown" Hualien, which as others have said, isn't much to look at. I didn't have a chance to take advantage of the free bicycle rentals, but saw several others do so. Highly recommended.
