Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Hotel Bayview is facing the Pacific Ocean and the rooms are clean and cosy. My kids really love the free bicycle ride near the coast. The hotel has a nice 24 hr cafe that serve free beverages and biscuits.
The staffs are friendly and helpful. They help us to reserve our next day train tickets to Taipei.
they also provide free transfer to the Hualien train station. With such a great view and friendly staffs, i can't wait to plan for my next trip to Hualien again.

I LOVE this place. Although I travel a lot both for business and pleasure, I never came across a hotel so dedicated to the wellbeing of its guests. If you plan to open a business in the hospitality industry, come here first and learn how to run it properly.

As a guest, you will be amazed about the level of service a relatively small family run hotel can provide. Literally everybody will smile at you and give you all kinds of information (being so ethusiastic that you feel they tell you for the first time ever). It is the details that make the difference. For example they have a free coffee and tea bar with computers and tables to have a rest. plus washing machines in the basement. plus free bikes from six a.m. to make the most of the area's cycling path next to the beach. plus free pick up from the train station. plus a breakfast you dream of, both with western and chinese style breakfast offers (the best congee I ever had - yummy). The Lin family just knows how to do it right.

Don't come here if you expect a five star hotel or if you want to be in the middle of the city. This place is situated in a fishing village about 15 minutes outside of downtown Hualien. you will need to take a taxi if you want to go there, also for dinner. I recommend having dinner at the small family place next to the temple - very nice seafood and simple dishes at competetive price. afterwards, you can enjoy a snack from family mart sitting at the beach - what a treat.

Room Tip: A seaview room in the upper floor will be better, because view is not obstructed. a balcony will pa...

Although the vicinity is not as modern/established as other main city, this place has a great view to chill out. Hotel Bayview has lovely cosy feel to it, with friendly staffs. Rooms are very clean, neat and in lovely hues of colours. Loved it. Has a great view of sunrise.

Room Tip: Seek Ocean facing room, and on higher level. Check with staffs on where to head around.

We were recommended by a friend and truly it was what was expected. Upon reaching the lobby, the hotel staff came out and immediately took our luggage, and swiftly ushered us into our rooms.

The hotel had a cozy design, we got a 6-person family room, 1 room with 2 queen beds and 1 room with 2 single beds. Our big bathroom complete with Jacuzzi and there is another small toilet at the single beds room for quick usage. Everything was clean.

Complimentary breakfast was superb, in fact, you could very well have brunch :). There is a 24-hours cafe with free flow of fresh coffee and simple snacks. Hotel also provides free bicycle rentals.

Just few minutes walk to the beach, we spent the first night eating night market treats along the beach. What a great experience. You can walk to the beach to see sunrise, and a casual stroll along the beach.

Hotel is far away from Hualien City center, so you will need a taxi or van to bring you there. There is a Family Mart right by the corner so you can get some basic supplies there.

Superb stay, I will definitely return to this hotel again.

I traveled here as a single western woman and felt so comfortable and welcomed by the staff! Juan speaks perfect English and is ready to provide information and insight at any opportunity, as well as as many trips back and forth to the train station as needed! He helped me get to Taroko and out for a great bike ride. The room was nice and the breakfast was good. The highlight was definitely all of the friendly and helpful people who work there. I would absolutely stay again and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Hualien.

We had a great getaway from Taipei at this cozy and relaxing hotel. Breakfast is decent; free bike rental with nearby ocean side bike trails; 15 minute drive from downtown/train station. Most importantly, it had a great ocean view!

Hotel also offered a great car rental deal which extended day rental to 30 hours and matched our scheduled perfectly.

We were recommended to this hotel by a friend, who's been there many times. The view is simply amazing with the ocean right in front of us. We could roll out of bed a few minutes before the sunrise and watch it from the window. The hotel also provides free bicycle rental and breakfast. Service was amazing as well. Despite the hotel looking very ordinary on the outside, the rooms are clean, modern and comfortable.
