Low Key luxury

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 17, 2008

I've known this hotel since I was a high school student, with its astonishing location, I made up my mind to stay here one day when I start working. I came here again early in this year 2008 while I was jobless; this time I spend a giant part of my one month pay to stay over a weekend. This is the only private owned hotel in the national park area, and perhaps the only luxury in the zone. The service is very good just like all other places in Taiwan. I did enjoy their pool on the thrid floor, where you can enjoy stars at night and scenery on the day. The sunna room is okay if you are willing to be naked like all hot springs in Japan. I didn't go to the gym, but there is one.
Please do NOT expect good food in their buffet, which cost you NTD600(USD 20) pps for dinner and NTD 400 (USD 13.33) for breakfast. Considering the location and the price you pay for a meal, the quality should not be regarded as bad already; so do NOT expect any goodies from their buffet.
In all, I think it is worth the price you pay for a night, the price can be even cheaper if you book through travel agent. We paid NTD6,200 (USD 206) to have a free shuttle bus service from Hualien train station to the hotel, a dinner duffer, a breakfast buffer, an aborigin dancing show, and a scenery view room. You can pay NTD350 for half day trip and a day trip.

Unique Quality: The location is the best for thie hotel. It locates in the middle of national park area. The view is good and very close to sightseeing area. We spend three hours on foot to arrive Water Curtain Cave.
