We spent a very comfortable 2 nights in August 2018 here, well looked after by co-owners Phoebe and Vincent. Exactly the kind of stay we were looking for before – a perfect ‘base camp’ to relax in, before we headed on for a 3-day cycling tour down Taiwan’s East Rift Valley.

Phoebe got in touch by e-mail well in advance of our visit to make sure we had a smooth arrival (she booked a cab to pick us up from our restaurant for dinner) and to help us make the best of our short stay in Hualien. La Meme Histoire is a 15 minute drive south from Hualien train station – in a quiet area out of the town where the air is soft and clean. Phoebe has an arrangement with an efficient, discount taxi service so we were able to move into and out of town quickly and cheaply.

Phoebe and Vincent showed us around together on our arrival and, as they had spare rooms available, offered us a room upgrade at no extra cost! Our upgraded room was large, well-lit, beautifully clean and very comfortable - lots of free snacks and a bowl of delicious fresh longan berries from the garden. The ensuite bathroom was spacious, with a great shower. This is a beautifully designed (industrial chic) and thoughtfully decorated B&B.

What sets this place apart from hotels - and even other B&Bs – is the gentle, warm hospitality of the owners. Phoebe, Vincent and their son Randy are a kind, interesting and fun family who are attentive in just the right kind of way to their guests. We felt right at home. We very much enjoyed our breakfasts. The food (Taiwanese/Chinese) was superb - inventive, attractive, tasty and varied (Phoebe is an excellent cook). And our conversations with each family member were stimulating and wide-ranging. Meatball the cat – quite a personality – showed up each morning for a bit of pampering after breakfast.

We look forward to returning to La Meme Histoire, and will recommend this B&B to friends who want to visit Hualien, the Rift Valley or Taroko Gorge.

La meme historie was a wonderful surprise to our spontaneous trip around the island of Taiwan. We ended up staying 2 wonderful nights under the care of Phoebe and her husband. The food were delightfully presented and tasty. The room was comfortable and clean from corners to corners. Our boys were loved the couple and the place so much they ended up remembering only here, of all the places we stayed in a week's trip. We'd recommend it to everyone and will definitely come back to see Phoebe and her family again.

We are 4 adults and 1 child and we spent 2 nights in 2 rooms here. We could have stayed a month! Used to a busy city lifestyle, these 2 nights at 初见 slowed down our paces and allowed us to breathe in the peaceful countryside home. The owners were always present yet gave you enough privacy. Breakfasts were Top notch, made with the freshest ingredients and served beautifully. We enjoyed the daily chilling out sessions in the yard/garden where you had mountain views. The rooms were more than enough and little snacks were provided. We couldn't wait to go back everyday. Even our driver guide who was driving us around for the 5 days mentioned it's one of the best bnbs he has came across. Would definitely be back!

Phoebe contacted me even before we start our stay to make sure we make best use of our time in Hualien, helped us to arrange for our transportation to Taroko National Park, and gave us tips/ suggestions on arrival. The hostel was absolutely beautiful, we were upgraded to room 初見 and were welcomed by fresh fruits, cakes and tea upon our arrival. Phoebe and Vincent are so welcoming that I feel like I am at home. Breakfasts are perfectly delicious and Phoebe is so nice to help us prepare our breakfast as early as 6am in the morning on our departure day and 7am on our day trip visit to Taroko, she even prepare water and snacks for our hike and make us ginger tea at night after we return from dinner!!! Words cannot express how much we appreciated everything they did for us and this is the most valuable experience I have had in this trip. You will not get this kind of experience if you stay in a hotel and that is definitely not a miss! I will definitely visit Hualien again and stay with La meme Histoire!!!

Room tip: Highly recommend room 初見

My husband and I are no strangers to Hualien & its picture perfect mountain and sea scenery. What we didn't expect is an exceptional stay at La Meme Histoire Hualien. We read the reviews from fellow Singaporean travellers on trip advisor and decided on it. Thinking what made them rave so much about it.

Phoebe, is a host and a friend, it's quite a challenge to help us arrange for 2 days itiernary in Hualien because we have been to most places but she still managed to help us planned a new discovery & experience. Going the extra mile to make sure that we get the true Hualien experience.

The weather was rainy when we were there but what didn't dampened our mood is the very pampering stay. Our breakfast and tea snacks (they are not just any ordinary snacks, they fuel your tummy) are exceptional. Knowing how we don't get the best and freshest fruits back home, Phoebe got us a giant custard apple for tea, preserved mini pear and the rosella juice fresh from her backyard.

It's true that her cooking skill is superb. I even asked Vincent (Phoebe's husband) if she learnt it from anyone. Nope. She picked it up from watching Kdrama.

We stayed in a very spacious & comfy penthouse room! It feels like childhood all over again. It's suitable for family with kids or couple like us who love details. During our stay, we even get to interacted with a Taipei tourist, talking abt Taiwan & Singapore. A diff exp for us.

We were too well cared and pampered (laundry and food included) till our trip back to Taipei became so sad! We missed our two friends and their cat, Meatball.

I'll return with my family to La Meme Histoire!
