go for One Star Hotel. All three hotels in the same area. East Dragon and One Star are just beside each other while Rainbow is in the middle of Ximenting which I find that can be a bit too noisy for my liking when I want to rest early. About 10pm can still hear noise from the 'crowd' in the room.

I went to see the room at East Dragon. So so only but have internet access in their rooms. Not all rooms have internet access. There's internet access in all rooms in One Star. Good for people who bring their laptops.
So is the rooms in One Star better or East Dragon? Actually rooms just for sleeping .. Price n the TV programs more important~! haha

IMO, One Star is better cos it's newer. The rooms in East Dragon looks old and 'damp'.

And most important for me is internet access in all the rooms in One Star Hotel.

ok since only u and ur wife nia, better to go for the half or 1 day bus tour lor. If u dun mind payign extra bucks, booked a taxi there. Very flexible and they will bring u around the Toroko Gorge. There's another side of Hualian which i din go last time. Near the sea i think, get the Hualian map from the taxi driver. They will intro u the attractions.

Below are juz my suggestions..u dun need to follow..

30 Oct .. reach Taipei 2145 .. by the time check in hotel wl be 2300+ .. don't think can go anywhere ... can try Shilin Nite Mkt!

31 Oct ..Xin Bei Tou for Hotspring, Dan Sui for Ah Po Tie Dan and Yu Ren Ma Tou for Lover's Bridge

01 Nov .. stay for 2D 1N

02 Nov...PM...Taipei....Xi Men Ding...Wu Fen Pu...Rao He Nite Mkt

03 Nov...Jiu Fen and Keelung and Yeliu

04 Nov - 06 Nov...Taipei...

If you are nearby Taipei 101, you can go to this restaurant:
http://www.jogoya.com.tw/index.htm

It occupy the whole floor of a building near Taipei 101. A lot of food and a lot of customers. Recommended.
