We checkout out the bike for the small expedition along the seafront park; WiFi at this hotel needs to improve and the breakfast is decent for it’s priced. We recommend this hotel!

        nice friendly staff but far location”

        staff, rooms were clean, quiet

        I was expecting the hotel along a beach, but the beach was actually a shipyard so we couldn't really walk to the shore. It was also far from any activity, even the convenience store was at least 3 streets away. Luckily I had only planned a night stay in hualien. For those who want quiet and peaceful surroundings, this would be the place. but if you want to go to town or find something to do around the hotel, there isn't anything at all. The staff were very helpful to arrange tours for us though - thats definitely a consolation for their location.

        The view of seashore is very beautiful. The only problem is the parking lot is too small and the floor of the parking entrance is not flat. We parked outside of the hotel. Otherwise the breakfast was delicious. And room is very clean and comfortable.

        I really liked this hotel”

        Our room faced the mountains and it was on the 8th floor so we had a lovely view. The room was comfortable and well appointed and the housekeeping was very good. The only negatives were that the shower head didn't sit properly and if we used it, it got water all over the floor. Also I was not fond of the decor downstairs in the restaurant. But otherwise everything was good, the staff were all really nice, the location is lovely by the ocean, breakfast was decent, we enjoyed our stay here.

        We have booked two rooms for one night stay. We are very happ with the ocean view and yummy buffet breakfast. It’s really money worthy. Will definitely recommend to our friends.

        Above average”

        This hotel is not good at all for a solo traveler with no transportation. The view is nice looking onto the sea, but there is nothing around there. Even to find a 7- 11, it is a 10 minute walk and there is usually a Family Mart or 7- 11 within a minute walk. This hotel I am sure is fine if you have a vehicle or scooter to get around. The breakfast was fine and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was big and the bed was nice and comfortable, but there is a lot I did not like about the room as well. As soon as you got off the elevator the floor looked old and boring. The room also looked old and dingy and the wall were in need of a good sanding and a new paint job to brighten it up. The tv was so small and in the area where you cannot even watch it from the bed. The shower was terrible as soon as you step in the tub, you felt you were going to fall through to the next floor and you had to fight with the shower to get it to spray straight. Very disappointing.

        Nice experience”

        The hotel has Hawaiian theme which we find quite special and interesting. The room is clean and staff is friendly. The breakfast is simple, not many variety but it was delicious. We did not find huge group of tourist and we could enjoy and eat calmly and peacefully. Very relaxing. Suitable with family.

        Breakfast is more like a Chinese lunch. There's toast, coffee and a fried egg though if you can run on that.

        Value for money hotel that is out of the busy part of town. If that is what you want then it is ideal. Long walk to night market.
