“Good location, beware the loud Chinese!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a weird hotel that seems to also be known as the Fish Hotel and has fish motifs everywhere.

Got a room on the 5th floor which had a verandah big enough for a party! Only seemed to four of the kinds of rooms!

Room was large and seemed clean on first appearance. Later I noticed quite a few insects around the work desk and kettle area.. Bathroom is good and had a tub and shower.

There is free wifi but it can be very tempremental in the rooms, sometimes taking a while to connect. The lobby wifi is much more reliable.

Breakfast is served very early from 4.30 and finishes by 9 - neither day did I make it there!

My main grumbles are:
1. The bed and pillow were very hard. Woke up with a stiff neck during the first night.
2. The hotel is full of mainland Chinese tour groups who are so inconsiderate and are quite happy to yell and shout along the corridor before 7am without thought for other guests. My friend also nearly got hit by a cigarette butt thrown from the hotel window when we were standing outisde - despite being non-smoking.

Best point of the hotel is that it is in the heart of Hualien and easy to get around and see the city.
If you want a fantastic vegetarian meal head to Kimseki - a meal unlike I've had!

Room Tip: 5th floor, 502, 516, 520 all have large balconies!

Great location, pretty clean. The first drawback is the internet is ON only from 3pm to 10:30pm which is a bit awkward considering most of guests will be at their room during that time (evening).
Another drawback is: the bathroom door that we stayed have a problem but the staff was pretty responsive on that and have the door replaced the next morning.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Stayed one night here in early July, hotel is located about 5 mins cab ride from train station.

Location considered good, near the central shops area, with lots of food.

Check in ... front desk had problem locating my reservation done through agoda, not a good start. Weather very hot, and they didn't have the sense to invite the guest to have a seat, offer a drink while they sort out the reservation.

Standard double Room is spacious, with a couch. View of the mountains, and a car park in front.

Bathroom is not very clean, feels dated. Standing shower, no tub.

Recommendations for good local food ... presented with a tourist food map. Considered helpful but not excellent yet.

Service from the staff are way below those of taichung, which I visited before coming to hualien.

Overall experience below average, hotel not recommended.

This is part of my 9d8n taichung-hualien-taipei tour. See my other reviews on Taiwan hotels.

I'm still in Taiwan as I write this review.
