While the hotel was comfortable some areas needed dusting, and that included my room with some of the public areas. The hotel was not convenient for the night market, but was very close to the station. The bed was large, clean and comfortable. The shower was good. The breakfast was a disappointment, please see the other reviews. Luckily I was... More

Given we only needed a place to sleep in for 2 night while exploring Taroko Gorge and since Hualien does not offer that many great hotels, we chose this hotel. What a mistake! First of all, if you are not Chinese/Taiwanese - this hotel is not for you, as it caters only for local guests and is not able to... More

Just five minutes walk to the station. Room is spacious and clean. Decoration is nice. Lots of receptacle in room! I like it. Overall, it is beyond our expectation. Ask the hotel, if they can put you away from the group tour. This could be more peaceful. At the time we stay, the Chinese smoked cigarette in his room. The... More

The hotel is located a close (5 min) walk from Hualien train station with easy access to downtown Hualien (approximately $100NT). It is also well located for the Hualien bus tour to Taroko National Park. The hotel provided a free shuttle service to take us to the bus station in the morning for the Taroko tour and then in the...

The only thing is that you'll have to walk a couple of minutes ( maybe around 10-15) to geht to... More

The hotel was quite modern and the room was large and comfortable, however it also felt a little bit like China in that the build quality was not very good. For the room rate -- which was very reasonable -- I could overlook this. The main downside of this hotel though is the location. It's in a pretty quiet area,... More

Stayed here as part of our tour package. Nice location from train station, convenient amenities, modern room and strong free wifi. Easy check-in process and helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious-- so many choices and options. The family was happy. Went to Tarako Gorge the next day, good location.

Very reasonably priced with such spacious and well appointed rooms. Loved the marble flooring in the shower recess. Free WiFi provided.Breakfast mainly suited the Chinese pallette. 5 minutes walk to railway station.
