Portman was ajacent to the Sheriton. It was raining all the days we were in Ningbo. We were discriminated against in 1 of the Resturants... More

Great bargain for a quality hotel on the same block as Sheraton. Good location with busy local scene for after work exploring... a Starbucks across the street, same street has an excellent Irish pub (open late, maybe 2am), a Swiss ice cream outlet across from Starbucks, nice shops and ample simple Chinese restaurants nearby!

First time I was staying in this hotel 3 years ago, and in that time it was looking quite nice. Rooms were lovely, and looby was interesting. Restaurants not so much. But now it sucks. I have a feeling that cleaning team is on loooooong strike. Rooms are smeling rather bad, and I was afraid to walk barefoot on carpets... More

I recommend this hotel for business trips to Ningbo; positioned immediately outside the city center and the staff speaks english very fluently. The breakfast is ok, and the cakes are really delicious!

We had a lovely stay in this hotel. Most of the comments in other reviews are true. The "quirks" as one reviewer put it actually make this hotel a good choice for those who don't want to pay twice the price for the Sheraton next door. The decor is slightly dated but the carpet in our spotless room was new.... More

The room we had we small but functional, nice bed good internet (Not great but acceptable) bathroom is quite small and cramped and the only way to fit a toilet... More

The place is not bad, al least cheaper than the "fake under licence" Sheraton located on the same building and you can enjoy lounge and breakfast in Sheraton bldg. But if you are a no smoker be prepared for a nightmare. In here most of customer are long stay Chinese and they smoke all the day every were with out... More
