Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not bad hotel. Expect the minimum with this decently priced accommodation in Hualien. Clean rooms, good breakfast, good location.
I would recommend if you're looking for a no-hassle restful night.

None extraordinary expectations please.

The rooms here are pretty big compared to other budget hotels around Taiwan. Good TV with a comfortable bed, ample space for suitcases, and a mini fridge. Strong AC keeps the room as cold as you want. The bathroom is very big (albeit in need of updating) and has everything you need. Toiletries included. They even have a reliable wifi connection. There is a free breakfast each morning that is just a nice perk to have if you decide to stay here for other reasons, but I didn't think it was anything special or worth selecting this place over another. The location is close enough to walk to a main street with restaurants/convenience stores and if you're up for a long walk you can make it to the beach, which also has a night market nearby. However, if you are traveling by train, the walk is pretty long to get to/from the station. Also, there was a pretty significant (5.9) earthquake during one of the mornings there and the staff had absolutely no reaction or guidance for the hotel guests. As we hurried to go outside, they just watched with a confused look from behind their desk.

All-in-all, this is a great place that would have a full 5/5 rating if not for the lackluster breakfast, the outdated bathroom, the distance from the public transportation and the staff's failure to handle an earthquake situation properly. Definitely worth the money. If I'm ever back in Hualien, this would certainly be a place I'd stay again.

This is a good and clean business hotel in Hualien. I visited Hualien twice, and I stayed at this hotel twice. All staffs are kind and professional. Room size is large enough for our family. Hotel location is near the commercial area of Hualien city, so it is convenient for shopping or dining. If you want to find a comfortable hotel with reasonable price, you can consider it.

Before i was choosing this hotel, i've read many reviews about this hostel, and find it very good. So did i tried. And i was not wrong, this place is good and worth for the money i paid. The rooms are cleaner and interior was very good. Rooms are quite small though, but still liked the way they arranged the interior. Breakfast was not much, but good for a bite. Main town area is around 10-15 mins walk distance. There are around some local food restaurants, and fast food chain restaurants are not nearby. atleast 30-40 minutes walk. This place little off the road, so it may hard to find if im not with the driver i engaged for the day trip. Reception staffs are good with english, so could nt find any problem with communication though, and are very helpful.

Lienfook Hostelry is conveniently located along the one of the major arteries of Hualien City with a number of eateries and convenience stores nearby. It's only a short 5 mins cab ride from Tze Chiang Night Market. Staff were polite and will be able to advise you on where to go and how to get there. Though there is free wifi but the signal is very weak in the rooms.

Train station transfers are NOT provided no matter what the web sites say - the taxi will run you about USD $5.00 each way and you'll need to use a taxi or you'll never find the hotel. It's a 20 minute walk from the hotel to anywhere a tourist would want to be so consider an extra 20 minute walk to see or do anything. The hotel does have some old rusty bikes they will loan you. Breakfast was disappointing, but free.

This is really a value of $$ hotel. It's near the town center, the staff were great and the rooms were clean. I really couldn't ask for more. It was one of the better places we stayed at during the trip. If you're into walking, you could walk to the sea-side in 20mins. The town center's about 10mins away.

I found the breakfast so-so though. It's a buffet but the selection was pretty blah. But then, it's a smallish hotel so I really could not expect more.

The hotel proved almost everything you need and expect in a hotel. The location is not near to the town city of HuaLien, but was located near the main road. The night market was like 20 mins walking distance and few mins walking distance to nearest convenience store. So, if you looking for some hotel near the center part or night market, then this hotel is not your choice.

You can have a good sleep as the hotel was located in a quiet place off the main road and have their own car park space for the guest. The breakfast as for standard taiwan's hotels, porridge, bread/toast/ ham, fruit and tea and coffee.

"Make sure to look out the window in your bathroom, as there was a clear view into our window from the building next door (we even saw a person looking through to us one time), so keep the blinds shut if necessary. There is an elevator, though, so don't worry about being on a high floor."
