I stayed at Hotel Bayview for 2 nights and i was very happy with the friendly staff. To begin, i had some problems booking the room online and i contacted the hotel via email. Juan replied to my emails promptly in English, which made things easier for me!

My room faces the Pacific Ocean and I have to say that waking up to a ocean view with the sound of waves is indeed a wonderful feeling. The room is very clean and nicely decorated as well.

I love the blue-white colour scheme that Hotel Bayview adopted which gives it a mediterranean feel. Many of the furniture and decorations of the hotel adds up to that mediterranean touch. Breakfast had a wide variety of food which are all very yummy and the decor of the breakfast area (the painting, plates and fireplace) just makes the experience of dining there even better. The 24h cafe provides free beverages and a wide selection of snacks for hungry guests.

The hotel also provided free bicycle rental which is very good for a half day cycling trip along Qixingtan. The hotel liaise with this cab driver who would give a discounted rate for cab rides. Value for money and definitely a memorable stay.

We love the location because it is quiet, nearby the beach and it is an ideal starting point for a cycling trip from Hualien to Taidong. We started our cycling journey here to Changbin. The bed is good and comfortable, and hotel staffs are friendly.

Worth stay and value for money.

The hotel has Greek/mediterranean-style decor. Interesting to look at, at least for the first time. Of course, you can pick on the details if you have actually been to Greece or Spain.

What makes this place special is the hotel staff. They are not only helpful; they truly care about you. They offer suggestions for tours and share their favorite photos. The tour guides that they recommended for us were outstanding. We went to Taroko on one day and Huadong on another with two guides/drivers. Both are very knowledgeable and really nice people.

The locale is beautiful. On our last day, we did some cycling along the seashore with the bicycles freely available from the hotel. It's a gorgeous view.

The minor inconvenience is the lack of food options in the locale. It would be great if the hotel can provide shuttle service to popular locations near the city center during the meal times. Going to the city by taxi is not really expensive. However, it is expensive compared with how much one would spend in the night markets for food.

Stayed in the honeymoon room for 3 nights. The room was clean and has a beautiful view of the ocean.
Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. It was raining one day as we came back from the town and one of the staff rushed forward with umbrellas before we got out of the taxi.
Only disadvantage is the hotel is quite far from the town center and you would need to call a taxi everytime.

Hotel Bayview started off our visit to Hualien with a wonderful welcome. Firstly, there was a free pickup service from the train station. The person who picked us up was early and promptly brought us to the hotel. When checking in, the staff were all very welcoming, smiley and helpful! Just one thing that would make the experience perfect, if more of the staff were able to speak English fluently. But even that did not hinder the staff from providing excellent service.

Throughout our 3 nights stay there, we really felt as if we were at home as the staff would always greet us warmly at the lobby, open the door for us, and even held an umbrella for us to walk to the taxi when it was raining. They are ready to help you with anything if you just ask them. This hospitality is the biggest impression that the hotel has given.

The room we got was facing the ocean and is very spacious. Everything was clean and there was a shower and bathtub in the bathroom. The view is marvelous, and there is a Family Mart nearby if you wanna grab a bite. To go to the city the hotel can help you to call the cab and it is just about a 10-minute drive. Truthfully there isn't anything much to do in Hualien besides sightseeing (sceneries are breathtaking), but staying in Hualien and in Hotel Bayview was well worth it for the view, the hospitality, and just taking a pause from the bustling city life.

Thank you Hotel Bayview for making our stay a delightful one! Would stay here again if I were to visit Hualien again! :)

Room Tip: Choose the ocean view rooms!

Our first hotel, as a group of 8, started in Hualien. Both kids & adults were mesmerized by the beautiful ocean outside our room balconies. Glad that we booked early to get the ocean-view rooms. Hotel staff were very helpful. They helped us with transport arrangements for pickups at the train station, city centre, to Tarako and even a customized tour to both the East Rift & East Coast. It was a good 4-nights stay.
