Not bad

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Oct 2019via mobile
I stayed here for two nights
The hotel as you will see from Google maps is just on the fringes of town. To walk to night market will take at least 25-30mins. But conveniently there are some nice restaurants nearby and some good coffee shops.
The hotel offers parking, which is down in the basement. The entrance to the parking is down the right side of the building if you're looking out from it.
The staff at the beginning till the end of my stay were warm friendly and helpful.
The hotel it self does feel dated.
The room I stayed in was good, it was clean and well presented, with good facilities. But as previous reviews would say. It is starting to look old. The carpet in the room looked very worn.
The breakfast selection was good. There was an abundance of choice. You could stuff your face quite merrily. They even offer free snacks in the evenings!
I used the hotel as a base to get to the national park and the drive, I think was about 40mins to get to the main entrance.
So if you pick this hotel, it's a solid choice. But it's no Four Seasons.

The hotel facility is old, and the room smelt of moldy humidity but great value for money due to its all you can eat lounge, and free bicycle which is perfect for families. Great location too, 10 mins walk to the train station.

The whole equipment is actually old and the room is a bit smelly. But the server and front desk is helpful and the service is good. That offers night snacks for customers. I think if you need some places to stay in moderately low price. It is a great choice but the atmosphere is like only 2 star.

Large room with bath and showing. Free breakfast and dinner plus drinks and ice cream all day. It is very close to THSR Hualien station about 5 min walk and make sure you go to the front side of the station first. This is one of best hotel on our 2 week-trip in Taiwan. Highly recommended. By the way, we took the Puyuma tilting train to Hualien and Tze-Chiang Express train back to Taipei. Excellent rides. We hired a taxi form the Hualien bus station for our 6-hours Taroko park tour. The cost was very reasonable (USD 80) for six of us. We had great time at the park.
