Known as Meilun Hotel to the locals, Parkview is located about 10 minutes from Hualien's city centre. It's a good escape from the city, with the hotel offering enough to keep all occupied for a while.
The rooms are very spacious, with some offering great views of the mountains. The bed was a bit too firm and pillows flat, though they were able to send more pillows to the room. The bath tub has low sides, so it's easy to get in and out. TV does not have many international channels though. Staff are generally very warm and welcoming.
Breakfast tends to be crowded, and the hotel advised guests to avoid the peak 8-9.30am timing. It's a fairly large spread, just a wait for the cooked food like pasta and eggs. Otherwise, head for the cereal and breads where there are no queues. I didn't try the other restaurants; there were 2 on level 2.
Activities galore at the recreation centre, such as table tennis, billiards, indoor and outdoor pools, gym, children's play area, spa, rock climbing wall etc. The resort even has a man made waterfall and small lake. There's a laundry room with coin operated washers/dryers and a souvenir shop.
I asked about a shuttle bus to the city, but the only shuttles are to the domestic airport and train station. Taxis are about 300NT to Zhonghua Road for shopping or Ziqiang night market.
I generally prefer well located hotels but was attending an event at Parkview. An overall good experience in one of the better hotels in Hualien.
