- Parkview HotelMember ofLocal CultureFoodiesLuxury TravelersFirst to ReviewSep 14, 2013
The Parkview is an impressive, expansive property in Hualien. The east side of Taiwan in general is a little less metropolitan, and much of it still feels like it is a few decades behind the sleek, urban cities on the west side of the island. The Parkview, however is an exception. The grounds are HUGE, complete with a massive lawn, a waterfall, a few indoor kids play areas, an indoor and an outdoor pool, a climbing wall, a bakery in the lobby and an arcade. This hotel is definitely kid friendly and by western standards for all this is a great price. There are definitely some areas of the common and recreational areas that show their age more, but I would definitely recommend staying here. The beds are pretty comfy, not as plush as you might find in some western hotels, though. You get a great view of either the hotel grounds or the surrounding city of Hualien from your room.
There is a really convenient gift shop/convenience store (as well as a toy store and a swim shop and a spa product store) on the lobby level, we got lots of food presents here for people as well as some other good small gifts.
A couple other notes: the buffets for meals are large and have a decent amount of selection, but I think the property itself is more impressive than the food, with the exception of the dessert bar. Also, I have never heard of this, but to use the pool you must wear a swim cap. They have ones to loan you if you didn't bring one.Recommended for:Family Travelers
