Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stayed for two nights in July and had two rooms. The rooms are great, spacious, clean and comfertable. Nice pool snd gym. Wifi in every room. Very good value for money although the staff can make an extra effort to be more helpful to its guests (ordering a taxi should not be an issue). However, will stay again if back in Qingdao.

Right next door to the easy-to-find Copthorne Hotel, this place was a pleasant surprise: clean, spacious room, easy check-in and out, and Ok breakfast. In late Feb 2014, I needed a hotel for a 2 day business trip and found this one being pushed by ELONG. About two minutes away walking to May 4 Square, the price (around RMB 550/night) for this level hotel was outstanding. I will stay there again.

This hotel is made up of residences and hotel type rooms situated near the buisness district, shopping and bayfront. Having stayed on the hotel floor we were very surprised to find so much in this compact but spacious room. The main area is a lounge and bedroom seperated by a half wall that also housed a large TV that swiveled for access to both areas. The entrance hallway had a microwave, cooktop, small refrigerator and washer/dryer combination built in. A large wardrobe (equipped with safe & gas mask) and shelves provided plenty of space for clothing, etc. Across from the entrance hallway is a very modern Western bathroom with shower. Our room had a half view of the bayfront and when visibility was good it is very beautiful.
Meals are not provided but for hotel guests there is a buffet set up at all three meals on the 24th floor if purchased. Limited Western food for breakfast.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the bayfront.

My wife and me have been in Farglory Hotel for six days in May 2013. We booked by Agoda China and payed about 55 Euro/day. A very good price for this kind of hotel!
Room was at 30th floor, nice view over the city and (a little) seafront. Size was about 45 squaremeters and included als a kitchen with microwave, big fridge with freezer, extra drinking water supply etc. But there were only two cups for coffee, if you want to cook, you will find the cupboards are all empty! There also was a washing machine, which was very welcome, as we were allready 2 weeks on tour throughout China. The room was very clean, housekeeping was in there as soon as we were out - sometimes even twice a day.
Breakfast room is on 24th floor, offers a good choice of chinese and international food. There´s also lunch at the same place, but no dinner. Also on 24th floor, there´s a spa and a leisure center, but this we didn´t use, so I can`t say anything about this.
A 5 minutes walk takes you to the promenade, 10 to olympic sailing center, in the opposite direction, there´s a big supermarket.
The entrance is a little bit hidden, so taxidrivers have a problem to find it. We told them to stop at the next corner and took a walk for the last 100 metres. But for checkout we ordered a taxi at the concierge´s desk, so it was waiting in front and there was no problem with all the luggage. The concierge was also speaking a good english, have in mind, not everybody at the reception does! But we allways got, what we wanted.
So, all in all, a very nice experience, if we ever be in Qingdao again, this is the place we would chose again!

Room Tip: Chose a room on higher floors and you will have a wonderful sight and less street noise.

We spent 2 days in Farglory Residence. The hotel has the best location in downtown Qingdao, everything is nearby.
The rooms are very clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Our room had a wonderful double city and sea view. The breakfast could have been better with more food variety.
We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting Qingdao.

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.

Were in Qingdao for a relaxing F&E vacation in End Mar this year. Weather is cold however the stay is cosy for us.

The goods ...
the rooms are at high floor. we choose the sea facing room. It was most relaxing every morning to open the curtain shades and faces the big blue sea. Lots of nature light. At night the sight changes with the lights at MayFourth Sq and the Olympic Sailing Club and it becomes quite romantic.
the room is spacious and equip with a fridge, kettle, microwave, oven, washing machine and even a hood and electric hob. However no utencil is provided in the cabinet. We do not really need it as there are plenty of food places around the area.
There is a sink and a tap with a filteration system for drinking water. As it is every day there are 2 bottles of free mineral waters for the room.
The place is really centre of everything that is if you are the walking type. 10-15mins from MayFourth Sq and Sailing Club. A high end shopping mall is nearby; carrefour is just opposite. The food street YunXiao Lu is 2 streets away etc ...
Every room has it free wifi that make the place really convenience for biz and tourists like us that can do some homework via the internet.
It has a heated indoor pool and gym which we did not go and check it out.

Bad: I guess not so bad for some of us.
We arrived early in the morning via a midnite flight; short in most term only 5hrs. this make sleeping difficult on board. When u reach the hotel, the check in is not difficult. however, all we want to do is to grab a quick bite and zzzz ... but there is no room service. Lucky for us is that breakfast is till 10am and we can use the issued coupons to eat as they are not dated. The restuarant is only open for breakfast and lunch.
I do not think the staff can speak a lot of english. We can converse in mandarin, however it is not really our everyday conversation. It takes us a while to express correctly and it takes them a while to understand us. hahaha ...
The hotel residence do not have a prominient entrance. Either it is relatively new or not publicize, none of the taxi drivers we took know the place. we have to share with them the neighbouring building for better direction.
No bath tub but it does not concern us.

Overall, it is a spacious, new hotel. I will go back to stay there again the next time we visit Qingdao and will share to my friends. I hope the next time we visit the cleanliness standard is kept up.

Room Tip: I think it is worth it to pay a little more for a sea facing view room.
