The Beauty Stay (or Beauty Inn) is a lovely small hotel in a quiet area of Hualien. The hotel staff has only a basic knowledge of English but their friendliness is covering that up.
They offered me the only parking space they have for a car. Otherwise you have to park at the street, which is doable if you’re not arriving around 6pm.
To get around in Hualien, they have some bikes available but given the traffic, I would advise to walk to the center (about 30min. walk to the main shopping streets) or take a taxi.
The rooms are decorated with a sense of good taste and the bathroom offers a big walk-in shower. Negative point is the noise that’s coming from the hallway and which did start during our stay every morning around 6am due to Chinese tourists getting (loudly) prepared to catch their guided tour to the Tarokko Gorge.
There’s no elevator but they have installed a small food elevator to get the suitcases to the 2nd floor and that’s doing the trick.
Breakfast is in the lobby and is mainly Chinese focused. If you don’t like this in the morning, the choice is limited.
The hotel does not have a bar, which is a pity given the fact they have a nice terrace to sit outside. Wifi is claimed to be available in the lobby & the rooms but it’s not very stable. Luckily the neighbours did not secure their connection.
In summary, very nice & highly recommendable boutique style of hotel when you stay in Hualien.
