My experience at Portman Ningbo could not have been better. It was my first time in China and it really fascinated me. Staff very very kind, excellent room with a huge king size, EXCELLENT breakfast with many options of fruits and other things that I never thought I would eat in breakfast, but you definetely must try. Yes, for the... 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 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

The Portman is a very comfortable and good value hotel in downtown Ningbo. It's really part of the Sheraton complex with shared facilities. My Amex charge actually was "Sheraton Ningbo". Facilities are good. Rooms are comfortable (a bit dated, but comfortable). Breakfast was extremely good. Service was generally very good. A good value proposition. Recommended.

The standard apartment is well appointed and even has a small stove and sink as well as a washing machine. There were no cooking utensils, crockery or cutlery. So, I was not sure how you would make use of the mini-kitchen. As mentioned in other reviews, the Portman is almost part of the Sheraton hotel (you actually walk through the... More
