The location is good, close to the railway station, only about 5 minutes walk. Do not take the rooms in the wing building, DO take rooms in the main building. The rooms in the wing building has a terrible shower room, without any water block, water will flow in the bathroom. We complained, then they change the room to the main building, much better. The buffet breakfast is a combination of Chinese and Western style.

Room tip: room in the main building only

We travelled out of Taipei by train, hired a car from Avis opposite the Hualien railway station and stayed overnight at the Charming City before heading south. Lovely, friendly, helpful team, comfortable facilities, car parking and convenience for the station as well as city centre made this hotel a good move. Delicious buffet breakfast too!

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst doing the Taiwan KOM bike race. The hotel is conveniently located for the train station being only several minutes' walk away but a long walk from the main downtown area though there are a few small restaurants around. The room was clean, big enough for 2 people (we were able to fit our 2 bikes in) and a decent shower. Breakfast (included) was a bit hit and miss...the freshly cooked chinese savoury carrot cake and fried eggs were good...the other dishes were a bit cold (eg fried chinese vegetables, fried eggplant and tofo) and looked like leftovers from the night before. However when they found out we were getting up at 4am to do our bike race they immediately offered to make us a packed breakfast consisting of an apple, ham sandwich and soy milk which was nice of them).

The inroom wifi worked well and there was free parking.

Not a bad choice in Hualien if you are looking for a clean and reasonably priced hotel near to the train station.

Midrange hotel within easy walk of both train station and hop-on-hop-off bus to the Taroko gorge. Good two-head shower, buffet breakfast and little gym if you need a workout. Restaurant is OK for supper but there is better food in town.

Few staff speak English (but enough for all the basics).
Room airco is either full blast or off - I found the lack of blast control annoying (there was temperature control).

For some reason I only got one breakfast coupon for a three day stay but managed to bluff my way through without further need of the front desk.

I needed to go to hospital and one of the staff kindly drove me there.

All in all about what I had expected.

Does that make it worth a 'four' - well maybe for some, but I'm not a fan of grade inflation so 'three' means OK for me.

No complaints at all here.

Be aware that, while it is close to the station, you should still research where. We didn't for some reason and were unable to find it without the kind help of a food stall owner who knew the English for Google.

The breakfast was not western at all, but you can get eggs cooked by request.

It was a cab ride to eateries and not easy to find English translations.

Staff were helpful and some could speak English.

The room was fine. The bathroom was plenty private for couples or close friends, having a curved window and shower curtain looking out to the room. Toilet was a swinging glass door in the bathroom area. Maybe not suitable for business associates?

If you are researching this to go to Taroko Gorge, two points: go!! It's spectacular. We used Hualien Outdoors; a young Canadian who knew his stuff. Secondly book your train tickets as soon as the're available, i.e, 14 days out. Demand can outstrip supply on this route.

Back to the hotel, it is perfectly nice and for anyone with little ones has the most fantastic play room in the basement. There is also some fitness equipment.

Fulfilled our needs perfectly.
