Awesome stay at Bulowan Hotel”

Bulowan Hotel exceeded all our expectations. We had a with a double bed and a window overlooking the street, which was very clean, spacious, and had plenty of toiletries and drinks available (complimentary). Great value for money at this price range. Staff were amazing - very friendly and helped us with every request from hiring bikes and booking taxis to planning activities and eating out. Overall, one of the cleanest and nicest hotels at this price range.

Staff in info desk is very kind and room condition is excellnt. However location is not goood for me to go hualien station. Most of the traveller who visit taroko national park will go hualien station to get on the bus leave for taroko national park. However It takes 30minutes~ 40minutes to walk. Bus doesn't often come to the station around there.

Good looking but cheaply built place. Not a great choice.”

This hotel looks great but is built cheaply. The wall, halls, and overall construction are not worth the price you pay for it. I say this since i work in the hotel industry. I was much happier with other places around Hualien (I stayed at Fantasy Appartments last time but they were full this time). The staff was very polite. One night i came to my room and found it completely empty. The staff had forgotten to tell me that they had moved all of my things to another room. They had not asked my permission to do that either (they had my phone number, and i speak chinese...). I realised later that a pair of socks had gone missing. The room they moved me to had a water problem. Despite multiple tries over 24h they never got the hot water to work properly. The mattresses aren't great either. Disappointing...

Decent place in Hualien”

Stayed for 3 nights. It was at the city center of Hualien. Quite a walk to the night market around 15-20 mins walk since it is 1-2km away. There's a breakfast place in front of the hotel where you can get Taiwanese omelette. Staff needs to improve english since I couldn't ask them for advise since most of them barely speaks english.
