My daughter and husband treated us to a night at this hotel. The stay at the hotel was great. The experience started with friendly staff at reception ( Thanks Judy ) and then moved to a beautiful room with a great view of the ocean. We played in the indoor and outdoor pools for hours. Spent the night sitting on... More

We stayed here on a weekend and had a room with a mountain view. Probably the best thing about our stay was that we were upgraded to a suite and we loved it. The suite was huge and with nice decorations. Only two negative things I can mention: - No reading light in the room - It´s a big hotel.... More

We came here after 2 weeks of traveling through China and Taiwan... My personal very first impression was not so good. Trapped at the hill top, not many options for food (we are vegetarians) and only a small outside pool (look at the nice pictures ...). But wait - after spending 5 nights here the whole family was happy! Staff... More

Stayed for three days and two nights at the Farglory. It is not too far from the Hualien train station, perhaps a 20 minute shuttle ride. It is located up a small mountain so there is a nice view of the Hualien river valley on the entrance side, and a nice view of the Pacific ocean on the other side.... More

Location was great, looking down the ocean and at night the stars are superb!! Recommend to have an ocean side room. If you could go out in the morning, you can see the beautiful sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. At night you can count the shooting stars.

The word kitsch often comes to mind when describing Taiwanese attempts at luxury, and this place is not an exception. That said, I must say it's the best kitsch I've seen on the island so far. The style is I think supposed to be Victorian, and there are touches that were pulled off nicely - for example, I really like... More

Hualien FarGlory Hotel is situated atop a hill in Taiwan, and is a pretty big facility. It is probably the nicest hotel at which I've stayed in Taiwan. That said, the hotel oozes cheese (from the electronic grand piano playing in the lobby, which is on a 20-minute loop of old songs that will drive you mad after a couple... More

The 5-star hotel in the area. Unfortunately, 5-star only means how much they charge you, it doesnt mean that they deliver the same quality of service. First, the facility is aged. You can see lots of vendors in hotel lobby which make the lobby a bit messy. Second, buffet restaurant is too small. You will be forced to eat somewhere... More
