Nice hotel on the seashore”

Clean hotel with good facilities

worth to stay with such price. i stayed at this hotel when hualien was forecasted to have typhoon. this hotel was fully prepared, the windows are closed properly and sealed. they even put additional towel incase the wind might blow the rain through the window gap. they also provide bicycle rental. overall are good, except for the food. i wouldn't say it was bad, but i expected more since the service and everything were satisfying.

Gorgeous rooms in a lovely hotel”

Excellent quality bed and linens in a well laid out, fairly plush room

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at ASTAR. The room we had overlooked the harbor and the hotel's pool. The balcony doors were large so we had a brilliant view and the doors were well sealed so they kept out the noise of swimmers and people downstairs once back inside. Bathroom was big enough with a strong-powered shower head. TV was OK but not well tuned. Table tennis and Foos Ball table downstairs, and swimming pool and garden make this a fun place to spend a few days. Another bonus is the hotel has bicycles for their guests to make use of at any time free of charge. Breakfast is buffet style with Taiwanse food. There is toast, coffee and juice available too. Location is on the harbor which is great for walking and cycling but those without own transport may prefer to be closer to the main strip.

Very nice and relaxing.”

Nice pool, nice balcony view, very clean.

We had a wonderful stay at the Astar Hotel. We went for our anniversary, and it was a very nice and quiet place to stay. The pool was nice and relaxing, since the beach wasn't very close. But we rented bikes from the hotel and rode around the city. It isn't super close to Hualien City, but it's a short taxi ride away. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing get a way.

Nice hotel, unusual decor - much wood carvings ”

Large rooms, located near harbour and walkways, very green

the astar is about taxi ride from station and centre of town - staff willing order taxis and do everything they can to help. wi_fi available in bedrooms. decor a bit dated but we were out and about most of the time so key things - a good comfortable bed + good shower were met. only minus - this hotel caters for bus tours and there can be lots of tours, most of the groups were fine, but one or two of the folk in the one of the groups were really loud and rude making it difficult for the hotel staff to help us. on another occasion we witnessed a rather 'legless' person being escorted to his room!

Only negative is cigarette smoke from other uneducated hotel guests entering the room. If Astar fixed this....smoke alarms and removal of guests and friends who flout the rules then the place is very good.

Clean spacious rooms”

Comfortable and sea view

The quad rooms are large and comfortable. It was a super stormy night on the day I was at Hualien and the driveway was completely flooded. Yet coach buses of Chinese tourists kept coming so it was rather chaotic. Generally no problems with the hotel as I spent little time there. Whilst the wifi there is free without any passwords needed, the only con is that the wifi on the 5th floor is so weak that there's no signal at all. Had to go down to the lobby just to use wifi. Had to find a place for dinner. Apparently there was a "rainbow restaurant" at the basement of the hotel but it was so "un-inviting" that we had rather venture out on a stormy night to settle dinner.

NIce hotel but a little far from city centre”

Good sized rooms, ocean view

We stayed two nights at this hotel during winter. The staff were friendly, although their level of English was poor. The breakfast buffet was average. The hotel was really nice...the rooms were big and comfortable. It is a little far from the city centre so I probably wouldn't stay here again if I was in Hualien.

Really friendly and helpful staff. Away from the city centre and not ideal location for Hualien unless you have transport. Good for business. All other guests appeared to be on Chinese group tours. Included buffet breakfast quite strange for non-Asian tastes!

Average hotel with lots of groups”

Big rooms renovated recently

Hotel is very big and a lot of groups are using it as a stop in Hualien. This means that there can be a lot of noise very early in the morning and quite late in the evening depending on departures/arrival times. Breakfast is quite poor from European standards. Rooms were quite big and comfortable and there was no cigarette smell. Staff was not very communicative and their English not so good. However they agreed to lower the music in the corridors which was very loud and prevented us to sleep.

Good value for money

A pleasant stay in a large room with a good bed, great service and a nice breakfast buffet. The hotel has a pleasant garden with a nice pool. The location is not bad; near the city center and right at the harbor. A great location for an early morning walk along the beach and a good place to stay before heading to Taroko!

Good Spacious Hotel and Convenient Location”

Large spacious with modern, recent furnishings.

the hotel is not modestly new, but room furnishings are recently renewed. modern bath and shower room with big plasma tv and sofa. we have a family room which is absolutely huge with big 42" tv, near new furnishings, modern decorations, and lots of ambient lights. the views of the seaside and harbour are very nice too, but you have to be 3rd floor or above to see them. breakfast is good, but without any excitement. service is good and courteous. it is a little far from the city center, but otherwise only a short drive - 5 to 10 minutes away. overall, a very good hotel for the money. only drawback - perhaps too many group tourists in the hotel making breakfast and pool use less pleasant.

Location, Comfortable beds, Helpful staff

Good sized rooms with a balcony and comfortable beds for western people. Cable TV channels are limited. The hotel staff are excellent and very helpful, each time we have been there there has been someone that can communicate at a passable level in English with any help we may need. The location is good by the ocean, but just out of the CBD so there is easy parking and the area is quiet. The included breakfast has a good variety, but not very western firendly. They have toast to get you by, but we have found a good breakfast spot a couple of blocks away that does great bagels.
