Have made many visits to this hotel over the past decade. I am always made welcome and to feel at home. If you can register for the Club lounge access on the 19th floor. The Happy hour service from 17:30 to 20:30 is so rewarding after a hard day at work.

Great hotel. Extremely friendly staff, well appointed rooms and very close to the train station. I was upgraded to a suite which which may skew my review slightly! The breakfast was excellent and, unusual for China, the coffee was actually drinkable. One very minor point is that it was not easy to navigate the hotel. There are two buildings and... More

It's one of the best hotel in Ningbo if you are on a business trip. It has dedicated staff for foreigners. Room has been recently upgraded. Very nicely renovated and has the best value for money. Walking distance to a shopping district. Has been staying here and will in future too.

This was my second stay at this hotel and it was very different than my first time. We started our visit with an awful customer service experience. The people at the font desk couldn't find our reservation. I then realized they just kept saying "yes" but didn't really understand me. Even when I showed the reservation confirmation they were not... More

Usually I stay in Sheraton or Shangri La in Ningbo. However this time I stayed in Howard Johnson. Building is huge but its more like a local Chinese hotel. Very noisy lobby, restaurants are also basic. They need to add more international restaurants.

Nice enough hotel, service excellent, sometimes a touch too much. Not many people who speak English, so it is hard to get the information you need. Comfy bed. Breakfast so-so... bar and snacks very expensive for Ningbo area.
