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.

Greeted by the friendly family members even thought we reach at ard 8-9 pm. They waited for us and lead us to our rooms. Always with a smile and jokes. Even when saw them in the early morning, they recommended us to see the view just behind the building. Great view and really relax for me and my family.
The breakfast is nice too and fruits are fresh. Will be back again with friends and hope to see them and the baby again. Thanks so much!

This is a good option right on the boardwalk in Hualien. And yes you can see the ocean right from the room. The room is large, bright, clean and mostly quiet. There is a large shower with good hot water, towels, toothpaste and toothbrushes, a refrigerator and more. The room had two air conditioners, which were both ok, though not great. It is within easy walking distance of plenty of shops, a small night market, spas, etc... They will also pick you up and drive you to the train station. The owner, Edwin, is very attentive, always wanting to know where you are planning to visit and always offering advice (some may find it a bit much). Breakfast is included - some fruit and sandwiches and dumplings that were clearly bought the day before and microwaved. That is the one part that could be improved.

Booked through Agoda.com. We were greeted by the friendly boss at the front door. After the registration, we were ushered to the Japanese room at Room 302. The boss told us that it was better for us as we have 2 kids and the wooden floor would not be too cold for them.
My heart sank when we entered the room. There was a step up of the room that was a potential tripping danger for my young children. The room was not well furnished. Low cabinates with missing right handle. Soap tri-dispenser with no indication of which is the shampoo, conditioner or soap. Tap with no indication which direction is for cold or hot water. Blinds that can be lowered but can't be raised. And the other one that cannot be lowered. Only heavy curtains can be used. A 32" LCD TV branded TATUNG which I never heard of.

After we settled down, we asked the front desk about the soap dispenser. We were trying to be nice as we address only 1 issue. He calmly replied that we should open up the dispenser cover and the labels would be on the inside!

We then ask for recommended places of interest. He told us to take a walk behind the hotel. When we took the walk we could see the inside of our hotel room clearly.

That night, we found more defects like the sinking of the tatami floor that cause my child to trip.

We finally couldn't take it and requested a change of any available rooms at about 8pm. The lady boss replied that we can't change because that was the only room that was available through agoda.com. She went on indicating that agoda has a good percentage cut from this deal. But i checked from all the photos agoda posted the website with various selections of about 5 rooms but the room given to us was not in the pictures posted in the website. I told her about people able to see into our room from the public beach walk and she said all the rooms can be seen from outside so we should just pull the curtains. I said the blinds are not working and I will not be paying so much if not for the sea view and her best suggestion to me is to close the curtains???

The best she can do is that she will change us to an available unoccupied room at (Room 502) with an additional payment of NT$500 for the cleaning of the bed sheets and cleaning of the room! We barely even touched the bed sheets. She furthered said that agoda is misrepresenting them by posting those photos and they will terminate their contract with them next year.

Its a very clear cut situation who is lying. I am sure agoda didn't get those photos by sending their photographers to take photos of the Room 302 and the surroundings. This has been very unpleasant for us. I hoped that through this article other tourists can be spare from all these unhappiness. Our mood in Hualien is definitely spoiled by View Ocean.

Response from 花蓮海傳海景民宿, 業者 at View Ocean Bed and Breakfast
Responded 1 Nov 2015
當初和Agoda簽約合作只售302家庭房,有小朋友的家庭可在和室玩耍,房間也裝有需要時可和櫃台連絡電話,Dericy先生進房並未和櫃台說這不是他想要的房間,到晚上才告訴我們,是靠隔壁一邊的窗戶有廣告看板擋住風景的一半,5樓是3面景觀,但是,我們也向他解說,進房就可告訴我們他想要房間,不是到晚上才告訴我們不滿意,又要提告我們,我們也說網站照片也是如此,是Agoda沒告訴我把照片全放上,也沒指定需求,我們也問是否第二天再換502房,,或付洗被單費用,第二天,他認為我們服務態度很好,一直說不用換房了,也沒和我們說其他缺點,而我們民宿和飯店房間是不一樣的裝飾,海傳的設施和服務會更好,也謝謝您的建議,祝福快樂!

The location of the B&B is excellent, ocean view is very true, walking distance to the downtown part of Hualien also great to ride a bike around. The lady of the B&B is very nice and the breakfast comes with all kinds of fruits and selected local favorites. With that all said.. the room is very spacious but the interior design is terrible..and the bed sheets are not clean. My mom had to complain and ask for a new one and they explained it was done by a service provider..... maybe because we stayed at the cheapest not so European -European style room.

Most time if the service is nice I would recommend the place but the poor design of the room make it really hard to recommend this place. If you really want to stay, try the Japanese style, might be better.

Very disappointing. The entire place is full of clutter which immediately makes it feel super untidy and not taken care of. The pictures on Expedia and google do not give any justice, you would expect a cute, well maintained boutique hotel / guest house, instead you find a dirty, very run down building with filthy rooms. The food was terrible (and that has nothing to do do with me being a foreigner as our Taiwanese friend is of the same opinion) and again, all public areas were very uninviting due to clutter everywhere. Staff hardly speaks English too. We paid almost 300 USD for 2 rooms for 1 night which is completely overpriced considering what is offered for this amount of money. Skip this place despite the view and go somewhere else.

The hotel is at the end of a promenade on top of a tunnel. You can see local people doing their exercises in the morning in the ocean breeze ;-) From the B&B it's an easy walk to the center of Hualien with all its restaurants.

The entrepreneurial owner of the B&B speaks fairly good English. He upgraded us to a brand new room: big windows, good bed. There's a comfortable love seat to enjoy the ocean view. The toilet seat is high tech. Good Wi-Fi in the room. Receptionists are friendly and helpful.
The only disadvantage is that if you stay for several nights all vegetarian breakfast options boil down to the same thing: it's only the bread that differs. Luckily there's plenty of fresh fruit also.

Very spacious and quiet room with huge glass windows, overlooking the ocean. The staff were exceptionally friendly & helpful during our short stay last week. Organised our day trip to the gorge & even drove us to the train station when we left for Yilan.......seems the hotel is expanding so there will be more rooms shortly!!

We knew this hotel right on the waterfront had ocean views (the name was a clue?), but we were totally unprepared for the breathtaking views of the mountains to the east side. From our room, we could soak in these two scenes on both sides and just enjoy watching boats approaching the harbor or people enjoying the walk/bikeway running for 15 kilometers right behind the hotel along the waterfront. We absolutely loved our room with its comfy kingsize bed and rain showerhead in the bathroom. The owner and entire staff were so welcoming and helpful--from picking us up and returning us to the train station to recommending a bike rental shop nearby to setting up a bus tour of Taroko Gorge. It's a short walk up the street to the main, lively business district but just far enough away that traffic noise was no problem. We found ourselves utterly relaxing and enjoying our three nights here. Can't recommend this place too highly!
