I could never have imagined the pleasure of being welcomed by such a creative and talented pianist. Each morning our host painstakingly prepared us good breakfasts with freshly roasted coffee, and then played for us: Mozart, Bach, Yann Tiersen, and one of his own compositions. The effect was magnificent--particularly because of his unique grand piano, hand-painted by Gustav Klimt. Unforgettable!

It's all about destiny to find out this wonder place in Hualien. Four of us decided to visit the East coast of Taiwan sometime in March and started searching different hotels and home stays for a few weeks. One day, when I browsed through the blogs from one of the local tourist in Taiwan, I was attracted by a gorgeous piano photo. Then I started browsing the photos on her blog, realized that the place is full of artistic including more than thousands of books, as well as a limited edition piano in the world.

I drove around 2 hours from Yulian to Bosendorfer-Castle. When we arrived, it was around 6:00p.m. in the evening. The owner was very friendly and brought us to look around his 'castle' and introduced each room to us. After we picked our room, he also played two piano pieces to welcome us. The place is very different to those places I stayed in Japan, if you are not looking for a commercial 'home-stay' place, Bosendorfer-castle is definite of your choice. We felt...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As you open the Bösendorfer-castle’s door, you can smell the aroma of coffee wafting through the air along with the piano. Then there is a dazzling movement that flows through the whole body.You find that the most beautiful thing in life is not an article, but a profound experience that is able to touch the spirit. Bösendorfer, the embodiment of the traditional Viennese music, is the lifelong dream of a pianist. As a piano technician, his art has been passed on for 180 years, unattainably peerless in grace and talent. Yet outside the doors of the National Concert Hall, Bösendorfer / Artist Series – Klimt Model is in the castle that the dream has become accessible.And what is a guest house? Is it simply a service of providing a bed and breakfast? Or serving guests as a way to making a living? I have another view on managing a guest house. For me, it is simply a place in which people can exchange dreams. I share my travel experiences with the guests. Experiences that the guests could have hardly had. I’m also so thankful that I have been able to achieve my ideal lifestyle due to the guest’s encouragement. It is a lifestyle that allows me to recede from society and enjoy my piano, reading, thinking, and meditation. Since establishing this guest house, I have been able to get rid of the misery of my life as a teacher, and seek complete rest in the spiritual space close to my soul.So, welcome to the world of Bösendorfer. When you leave, the fire rooted and hidden deep in your consciousness will burst into flame again! The conversation between piano and coffee will lead you to Bösendorfer tonight, like the stream in your dreams. A world likely to be in between your remembrance and oblivion…How far is that between the present and Bösendorfer? You have to measure that by yourself. If you wish, set out on a journey. Let the spiritual supper in Bösendorfer bring back your lost passion.Even if you don’t play the piano, you have to know the legend of the Bösendorfer piano. Bösendorfer musical salon is a classical music guest house which is based on the principal of culture and creativity. The guest house offers an experience to appreciate the renowned piano for the music-loved ones who take this kind of experience, and try to combine ecology, recreation, bike tours, and fresh ground coffee into an in-depth travel based on the many forms of promoting classical music. Also, take the chance to Taiwan Hualien where have various attractions,such us Taroko National Park and so on.Or you could walk to the Chu Ying Trail,Sha Po Dang Stream Falls,and ZuŎ Cang Fall. These sceneries all are around the Bösendorfer-castle.If you can come here to listen to the music or touch it in person, you will smile in dreams all your life. ... more   less
