“Small room, bad breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

The room is much smaller than Park view Hotel nearby with same price. And the breakfast was also surprisingly worse than any of their chain hotels with same name.
I won't recommend this hotel to any friends until they have upgraded their breakfast service.

The Fullon hotel is a chain of hotels in Taiwan and so far they haven't disappointed. We were on a road trip down the east coast from Taipei and needed a place to stay along the way. The hotel itself is quite big and there were alot of people going thru the lobby. Fortunately there were many lifts so it was easy getting to the room. The staff were also very attentive and kept offering help along the way.

The room was an alright size. Not very big, but sufficient for a night's stay. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. When I had asked for a third pillow, housekeeping was very fast to respond.

Breakfast was quite wide with different varieties of food. As the restaurant was big, there wasn't a need to wait for a table. Didn't have much time to explore the rest of the hotel, but overall a good stop along the way.

As part of our Taiwan island tour, we spent one night at the Fullon Hotel in Hualine in late February 2013.

We arrived at the Hualine Railway station and was greeted by our tour guide. Compare to other major urban center of Taiwan, Hualien is definitely a rural town.

When the tour guide helped us to check into Fullon Hotel in Hualien, we were surprised by such an outstanding quality hotel in a remote rural area.

We were assigned to a corner room on the fifth floor. The room is clean with all the modern facilities. There is even a balcony where we can see the river and the fancy swimming pool below.

The hotel has free wi-fi service. I got the network password from the front counter staff. They had no trouble in communicating in English. Very positive experience in dealing with the hotel staff.

There is also a bank machine in the hotel lobby in case guests need local currency.

The hotel looks very new to me. I find out from the hotel staff that the hotel has been opened for about 2 years.

We had the breakfast buffet next morning. Good selection of Chinese and Western food.

Highly recommend to stay at Fullon Hotel in Hualien if you are visiting the area.

we stayed here in Jan 2013 for one night and a great hotel by the harbour and 10 min from city centre. Very polite front desk staff, excellent lobby deco and speedy lift service. Excellent spa and saun/gym facilities, outdoor pool was too cold to use but saw some people using the heated outdoor jacuzzi. Room was spacious and all the amenties, clean with a balcony and excellent view. Some rooms have automated toilet seats even!

Breakfast room was large and great choice of selections of Asian/Western/Tradition Taiwanese food. Prompt service and well mannered staff.

Overall an excellent hotel and would definitely stay here again if we come to Hualian again. The only downside was most staff do not speak English but were all very polite.

Room Tip: ask for a harbour view room and room with automated toilet seats!

wonderful stay here. Super clean, ultra comfortable. I slept like a baby. Wide array of food available for breakfast - western cuisine and Chinese cuisine. Really appreciated the excellent service, cleanliness, and food. Great place to stay after visiting Taroko. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night as a last minute decision as we couldn't make our way to Silks Palace Tarako due to bad weather. It was actually Silks that recommended this hotel.

Pros:
- Spa and sauna facilities were nice.
- Outdoor pool looked nice but we didn't use it as it was raining during our stay. The pool is not heated.
- Rooms have views of the Pacific Ocean
- Staff were very friendly
- Room was pretty standard. It was clean and comfortable.
- Business centre has two computers available for use
- Didn't travel with kids but saw a play room on the ground floor

Cons:
- Hotel was about 15 minutes from the train station by taxi. There's nothing around the area. You had to take a taxi to go anywhere.
- Breakfast buffet was not very good

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view of the Pacific Ocean.
