Location
Located in the heart of beautiful Hualien and very close to night market as well (like 2 mins walk). Hotel provide free transportation to hualien airport but not to railway station.
Hotel.
Hotel was very cheap at the time of booking so I wasn’t expecting anything special however I was surprised by the quality of the service they provided. Rooms were great and they do have elevator.Room had electric kettle, coffee powder, bottled water and all the toiletries. Breakfast was great. Staff speak English which was helpful.

Overall I am very happy with this hotel and will definitely stay here if I visit hualien again.

Very friendly hotel in the city center and near (5 mins walk) night market. It also provide free shuttle service to /from train station. The breakfast is nice but the menu is the same for the 2 days we stayed there. There is also free bike rent when available. They even reheat my xiao lung pau that I bought a night before from other restaurant for my sons to snack in the train. Will gladly stay there again if I visit Hualien in the future.

The hotel is located within 100m walk to the Dongdamen Night Market and also good eateries nearby like the Gongzheng Bao and Porkchop Noodles. There is also the roving mobile hamburger van nearby if you can catch them on the right night and I love their hamburgers with very distinct and flavourful taste so much that I ordered another 2 after testing one of them. It is also a short stroll to the Pacific Ocean seafront where there is a pedestrain walkway to enjoy the beauty of the ocean. The hotel is served by lift so no problem with big luggages unlike those homestays. The breakfast provided is simple with nice local taste. Room is clean and comfortable although a bit dated as evident in the toilet. They have twin and double room but somehow unable to select at booking although it was very easy for me to just push the twin beds together to form a double bed and the hotel staff re-arranged the bedsheets the next day to make the bed feels like a double bed.

On our second day of staying at the hotel we went out for the morning and returned in the early afternoon. Upon arrival to our room door, it was open (the door was open not just unlocked). Expecting to find cleaners in the room we weren't too worried until we realised no one was in the room. The towels and been replaced and bed made however old towels left on the floor, bins empty but no liners, toiletries not relished and on the bed. It was like the room was half way cleaned and the cleaner left. We thought maybe they had gone to lunch but no one returned to finish.
