“Wonderful hotel, staff and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We just had a three day mini vacation to Hualien in October, 2013. For a medium priced hotel, we were exceptionally pleased. The rooms and hotel itself were clean, and inviting. The room we stayed in was also spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed. I was also struck by the exceptional helpfulness on the part of the staff. We simply booked the hotel and then from there had them help us find tour guides for the Gorge and the Ocean. On the first night we went to the ocean, but couldn't find a taxi to get us back. Finally, we called the hotel and they came right out and picked us up and didn't charge for the trip. We were just glad for the ride and quite taken back at the generosity of their charging us for the pick-up. So in conclusion--great hotel, great price, great service.

Stayed a stopover night and woke up with multiple red spots on my legs - appears to be bed bugs :(

Breakfast was bland and mainly vegan items so is not appetizing to me.

Staffs were friendly and helpful.

This hotel is located in Hualien City, if you walk for 10mins, you will see all the shops and restaurants. It is also a walking distance to one of the night market in Hualien. They provide a shuttle service from the train station to the hotel. The room is clean and spacious. The hotel is located near a shopping mall as well where there is a supermarket, McDonalds and a food court. The staff also arranged a Taroko gorge tour for us. It was a pleasant stay but it's a minus for the breakfast, it is mainly an Asian breakfast buffet, dishes were not warm and not to our taste.

Overall, we recommend this place, the staff are very friendly and helpful! Good value for money

Arrived early from Taichung and was picked up by the hotel staff at the train station. Something i did not expect for a room of this price.

It was still morning and the staff suggested a few eateries within walking distance that i could go to before checking in. they provided optional day tour by external agents fro taroko Gorge and it's a reasonable deal too.

It was a enjoyable stay with welcoming service.

We stayed in Aug 2013 for two nights. The hotel is newly built and in very good conditions.
We arrived late at night and the service staff was very helpful in helping us reschedule our tours in Hualien.
During our stay we had to change the room, and I accidentally had left my iPad in the room. I found it in the evening in the other room, where the service staff had put it. Very honest staff!
All in all, excellent stay and recommendable at any time!

Great services provided by staff.
Furthermore, rental of bicycle is free. Good for having a late night cycle in Hualien where the streets are quieter.
Room is value for money. Acceptable size and clean.
Will definitely choose this hotel if I visit Hualien again!

Stayed for 2 nights in Jan 2013. Informed them beforehand of my train number and arrival timing and was picked up by them. Very nice hotel with cosy room. It is situated in the middle of the 2 night markets and the city centre. 15mins walk to all these 3 locations. Bicycle provided by the hotel if you needed one and the staffs are ever ready to help if you have questions. Will definitely stay back in this hotel if i go Hua Lien again.
