Disappointed on check in, receptionists very manic, given the wrong room and facing the construction-noise. Waiting for one hour to change to a better room, front desk having a disaster. lol. After one hour and half, we changed to a better room. Restaurant great foods and great services provided by Paul while we having dinner. He also very helpful to... More

I usually stay at the Ningbo Sheraton but a colleague mentioned that the Howard Johnson made recent changes and highly recommended staying there.. I found the service to be outstanding. From the minute i entered the lobby and the bellman graciously took my bags to check out - everyone at the hotel went out of the way to ensure I... More

We returned to Howard Johnson after our last visit two years ago. Rooms are clean and comfortable, the service at the front desk and the bell boy were good (definitely much more helpful than the guys at the restaurant). We really hated our experience at the restaurant - food was so-so but we couldn't stand the waitress in the restaurant:... More

I went back to the Howard Johnson after a 3yr absence. I travel a lot around China and visit Ningbo approx 5 times a year and 3yrs ago I decided not to stay there anymore. The hotel was fine and reasonably priced, the rooms were good too, but the service was not great in the restaurants and I found the... More

Booked a suite based on reviews. I can echo other reviews. Room was very large luxurious and everything in room was great. Free mini bar and plunger coffee was also good. Breakfast was not bad but could be better. There were no dim sum. Choices were quite limited. Western dinner buffet was not bad. This hotel is really trying to... More

This hotel has an aim of been in a Luxury top level. The attention of the staff, even a butler for your room service is something that I have never seen in a "4 stars Chinese hotel". Service is 5 stars but unfortunately, some details in the rooms and facilities like the gym or swimmingpool are not 5 stars at... More

After a very long time (I suppose about 5-6 years), I am finally back to the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel of Ningbo. I notice that there are several Howard Johnson's in this city alone, which isn't exactly a big city by Chinese standards. The conclusion I can draw is that Howard Johnson must be doing very well here at Ningbo... More

Located 5 minutes by taxi to the Laowantan bar village and within the typical "downtown" business area" this hotel is exceptionally clean and well run. I had a business suite and it was superb. The breakfast was good, with exceptional service from seating, to complimentary newspaper, to prompt service of coffee or black tea. Range on the buffet was good.... More
