We made a last minute booking by phone, because we were a day to early at our next location. A very welcoming and relaxed place. Splendid Chinese breakfast! The adult recreation in the basement has seen better times, but overall a nice play for a short stay.

The hotel is close to the Hualien Train Station. Our room was spacious and comfortable with all the necessary amenities provided. The restaurant provides both Chinese and Western style breakfast buffet. While the hotel web-site says: "Free wine or ice-cream for in-house guest per person once. Indulge yourself in 19th lounge bar". When asked about this, they said that the... More

We stayed here a couple nights to explore Hualien and the Taroko National Park. The Hotel is in the near of the train station, comfy and clean rooms but a bit away from the city centre. The breakfast is good, you can get eggs the way you like it and they have cold western style or warm food also.

I stayed as part of a group tour. We were upgraded to a spacious room on the 3rd floor. It had a separate lounge area, two flat screen tv's and was quite acceptable. Best thing was the inclusion of oatmeal for breakfast. There were not many other tourists in the hotel so it was a quiet and pleasant stay.

The location is good, close to the railway station, only about 5 minutes walk. Do not take the rooms in the wing building, DO take rooms in the main building. The rooms in the wing building has a terrible shower room, without any water block, water will flow in the bathroom. We complained, then they change the room to the... More

We travelled out of Taipei by train, hired a car from Avis opposite the Hualien railway station and stayed overnight at the Charming City before heading south. Lovely, friendly, helpful team, comfortable facilities, car parking and convenience for the station as well as city centre made this hotel a good move. Delicious buffet breakfast too!

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst doing the Taiwan KOM bike race. The hotel is conveniently located for the train station being only several minutes' walk away but a long walk from the main downtown area though there are a few small restaurants around. The room was clean, big enough for 2 people (we were able to fit our 2... More

Midrange hotel within easy walk of both train station and hop-on-hop-off bus to the Taroko gorge. Good two-head shower, buffet breakfast and little gym if you need a workout. Restaurant is OK for supper but there is better food in town. Few staff speak English (but enough for all the basics). Room airco is either full blast or off -... More

No complaints at all here. Be aware that, while it is close to the station, you should still research where. We didn't for some reason and were unable to find it without the kind help of a food stall owner who knew the English for Google. The breakfast was not western at all, but you can get eggs cooked by... More
