Not the best in China. There are always something to pick on for hotels here. Room shower selector is broken. Windows, can't really see the train station. The staff was very busy surfing the Internet while I was asking for directions. Breakfast, on a ten scale, I give it a 6.

Stayed for 3 nights for business and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was well presented and clean. Would stay again if in Ningbo on business. Breakfast had a good variety from western breakfast (not a single chicken sausage in sight) to a selection of Asian breakfasts

Travelling on business this has been my choice to overnight in Ningbo on multiple occasions. This time one negative was the amount of smoke in the hotel, both in the lobby and around the rooms. The service however is still very good and welcoming. Not much close to this hotel at least walking wise so eat either at the hotel... More

Hotel is an about 10 min drive from the train station and an about 30 min drive from the airport. Rooms are quite large. Bathroom has a separate shower. Everything feels and looks a bit outdated and old in the room, but it was clean and everything in good working condition. Electric plugs are next to the desk and bed.... More

Exceptional rooms with warm welcoming staff. Disappointing breakfast with slow and bad service. Was shown to an uncleared table and was told to get our food while they clear the table. We ate our breakfast on a cluttered table. Told the waitress three times to clear the table. Three times they acknowledged with a nod but did not attend to... More

My stay at the Howard Johnson Plaza in Ningbo was excellent. The hotel and room quality is amazing and is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. They offer you tea on arrival and I have a butler waiting for me outside my room. Definitely worth a stay here if visiting Ningbo.

I stayd in this hotel for the third time. I like HoJo. Location is perfect. Interiors are nice. Breakfast icludes European food as well as Chinese. Everything is perfect. But staff a little bit importuned. Everybody in the lobby and at the entrance thinks it his duty to welcome you or to show by hand the way I should follow... More

very very nice staff, very friendly and always smiley.. all of them. Probably the most pleasant staff all over china. Reach the hotel after a working day or a trip, and feel home. Also always very kind small attention from the butler team.

Because I had to stay over in Ningbo for a few days I booked, after reading some reviews, a room in the Howard Johnson. The rooms are spacious, clean and cosy: warm colors, good quality bed and sheets, marble bathroom with quality fittings.... very well maintained and well equipped. We stayed on one of the business floors so were able... More
