We visited this hotel in October, 2016 with a large group. The hotel sits on top of the hill overlooking the City of Hualien and Pacific Ocean. We could see night lights from the front of the hotel and ocean from the back of the hotel. We had a room on the same floor as the lobby facing the ocean....

This hotel looks outdated and a little shabby, even though it's only a few years old. The buffet food is mediocre, and the lobby has a funny smell. Skip the Japanese restaurant, it's strange and not tasty at all. The concierge arranged a good tour for us to Taroko National Park. The rooms, however, are spacious and the beds are...

FarGlory Hotel is a beautiful hotel, both the buildings and the location. The view from almost anywhere is stunning (ocean on one side and the valley and Hualien on the other side), and every aspect is quiet and elegant. The lobby area as well as the dining areas are well-appointed and exude calmness. Our room was very comfortable and elegant...

In the several day we have been visit the ocean park , so we decide to live in here. Hotel is pretty good and the building is really beautiful. But in the last day, weather is cloudy. We can't use the outdoor swimming pool that is a little bit shame. Otherwise the facilities ,food and service are all excellent.

The hotel is right next to Ocean Park and may be a bit far from city centre, however you actually don't need to go out at all once you arrive. The hotel provides shuttle service from train station, very friendly staffs and experienced in handling guests requests.

The hotel can be quite far from the city but is really huge and it's not surprising that guest rooms are equally spacious. If you're a big fan of period interior decor, then this is the place for you. The Victorian-era interiors especially the imitation paintings can go and perhaps the hotel can opt for a more modern taste. Some...

Should we have more time to visit Hualien, we would have spent more than three nights in and experienced different activities of this high value hotel. Week end occupancy rate is extremely high due to company events and family getaways. Despite the high traffic, the hotel is quiet as hotel guests are mostly Taiwanese. Hotel is located on a small...

First of all, I seldom give 5 stars for my reviews. This one is a real deal. If you are coming to Taiwan either for a short visit or as a tourist and happen to come to Hualien, you just can't miss this place. Excellent customer service and great views day and night!
