Very unique & cosy garden minsu with lovely pets & extremely friendly host. Traveling out to town e.g. Ziqiang night market was a breeze. Hosted arranged Quan Guo Taxi company to fetch us to which ever destination in Hualien at a fixed rate of NT150/way. Artistically cute self drawn map of Hualien was provided by Minsu.

This is BNB is a great surprise! After seeing many blogs and reviews of the BNB, when paying the visit in person, I was still thrilled by the delicate details and decoration of the whole structures and gardens! Even with the noises because of the wooden structure, I still enjoyed the stay very much. The experience was so impressive that...

We stayed in the "treehouse" room, as described in another review. The bedroom was really nice and comfortable, had the best sleep ever! The only thing is that it is near the main road, which some might find disturbing. In that case, I would suggest staying at the annex across the road next to the fish-farm. The two members of...

Stayed at Fanlin House for one night in July 2015. Stayed in a twin room: quaint room with one bed up steep stairs. Room was all right, as well as the bathroom. Shower is very small and doesn't have a curtain. Liked the small garden, pond and the beautiful flowers hanging down from the front porch. People were extremely friendly...

The room is not bad really, but the shower area has no curtains, the water shot everywhere. The frogs kept croaking throughout the night, if you can't sleep with any noise, I recommend you stay somewhere else. The place is hard to park at night since there are no lights outside or instructions as to where you should park. Other...

Had stayed at Fanlin house in Apr 2014. Overall, it was a unique experience, but we didn't feel the Minsu hospitality at Fanlin. The staff was a little grumpy in answering questions and the answers were rather "unfriendly" and "closed answers" given for "open ended questions". Unique experience, but won't be back to experience such unfriendly services.

I have to admit that for the first time I can absolutely NOT agree with the other tripadvisor reviewers at all! I still do not get why it has been described as "quiet", "oasis" etc.... When we got there just a few nights ago I obviously had totally wrong expectations due to all those reviews I had read before booking...

I really enjoyed my stay at Fanlin House (1 night). After a day walking in the nearby (spectacular) Taroko National Park, this lovely little hotel felt like an oasis. The manager was very helpful, and spoke excellent English. He not only recommended a great vegetarian restaurant in Hualien - he also drove us there and back! The room was very...

Fanlin House is a cozy B&B just outside of Hualien. The rooms are very nicely decorated, with dark wood and original designs. Ryan, the hotel manager, is a wonderful guy. He took care of everything we needed and more, we really felt at home! The breakfast was also great.

“We booked a 3 person room which was ideal with an upper bedroom on mezzanine floor. Good clean shower facilities and adequate toiletries provided as in all Taiwanese hotels.”
