I visit Qingdao regularly for business and as with all my destinations research all possible hotels as much as possible. Initially I could find little or no information / reviews about Far Glory, especially on Tripadvisor. As with all Chinese hotels I was skeptical about reviews and information provided online.
Farglory is an amazing hotel. It is located almost next door to may 4th square right in CBD of qingdao. As it is very new few taxis and locals know of it as a hotel. As it doubles as both an appartment and commercial complex.
The room was very clean, large and modern. A full set of bathroom amenities was available, wonderful large bathroom, free wifi, kitchen (pls note no cooking utensils - plates, cutlery, pots etc) HBO & Sat TV, microwave, large refrigerator, enormous bed etc etc. all the amenities you expect from a 5 star hotel but in an appartment setting. Some of the reviews I read suggested difficulties with English at front desk & concierge however I experienced no such difficulties. The service standard was excellent. I even requested help to work the washing machine and within 10 minutes house keeping was at my door to instruct me how to operate the appliance. Breakfast is good but don't expect a 5 star breakfast in terms of selection however I found it more than adequate with selection of both Chinese and western. All food was well prepared presented and fresh. The view from the breakfast area is what sets this appart from other hotels. The recreation facilities are superb both pool and gym with views over the square, ocean and city. All in all and excellent hotel. If you are staying 1 night, 1 week or 1 month u will not be disappointed. My stay was 3 nights. If ever I am placed in Qingdao for longer stays this is the location as it is more of a residence. My only concern with this review is that by posting this more people will stay and ultimately the price will increase! An absolute bargain and an amazing hotel.
