Enjoyed my birthday stay with bbsunrise for it's a very cozy minsu. Only met the hostess throughout my 2 nights stay here but Rachel was super friendly and kind enough to wait for our late check-in and even shared with us some useful info (e.g. where to eat, what to do) for our stay in Hualien. Would love to come... More

Stayed in the family room for 2 nights, it was very spacious and clean, and every equipment was functioning well. The minsu owner and staff were very helpful with offering suggestions on things to do/ how to go etc, and would chat with us on how our day was. Their great hospitality has made my stay very comfortable. Location of... More

Overall, it was a good experience to sleep at Sunrise hotel. I rated only 3 stars because I found the hotel very isolated and far from the city centre. It could deserve 4 :) The hostel manager was very friendly and had given me and my friends some traditional candies and cakes.

Hualien became our one-night sojourn after a long day journey from Hehuanshan passing through the magnificient Taroko Gorge. We arrived around late afternoon and were greeted by two wonderful ladies who helped to process our check-in and one of them, Ms. Angela, brought us to our spacious room on 1st floor. A four-poster bed in the middle, with dresser on... More

I got the slightly better room. Twin deluxe. There was no lift in the minsu and we have to lug our luggages upstairs. Thankfully mine was on the second floor. Have to walk quite a far distance to reach Zhiqiang night market. I love my view out of the window though. Nice taroko gorge in the distance. Minsu owners were... More

Excellent place for the price. My room was a little more basic than my friends' rooms, but was still nice. Their rooms just had a bit more in the way of nice homey touches. Rooms are decent size, with mine being bigger than necessary. Bathroom is decent size as well. Be warned bathrooms have the non-separated shower, like most lower... More

We interacted with two very helpful ladies at the front desk over the 3 nights we stayed there. It was our home base for exploring Taroko Gorge and the surrounding area. The decor is A+ with attention to cleanliness and the place feeling like home. There is not coffee or breakfast but there are places around. The only big downside... More

Owner and staff is friendly and we enjoyed our stay. Only 10 min walk to ZiQiang Night Market. Room is comfortable and well kept. Special arrangement for cab can be made with hostel with a flat rate charge. We enjoyed our 2 nights stay and must say it was affordable.
