I was a bit surprised to find the Howard Johnson in Ningbo to be a high rise premium property. The lobby is bright and wonderful. The staff signal excellence in service from the minute one drives up. Plenty of white gloved door staff. Check-in is fast and friendly. Warm towels are handed out to refresh with and even some tea... More

This is a really nice hotel anyway, but on arrival I was upgraded which is always nice. The staff walked me to my room and explained where everything was, they could not do enough. The bar on the lobby floor was really nice and chilled with a great choice of drinks, often not available in Chinese hotels. Great value for... More

I chose to stay at the Howard Johnson Plaza Ningbo after reading the many good reviews on Tripadvisor. I booked a suite on the executive floor with access to the executive lounge. The check-in procedure was a little slow, but the staff seemed attentive and friendly, and I was eventually off to my room. I was given a corner suite... More

Great hotel. From the hot towel at reception, the cup of tea or the slippers ready to wear when you get in your room, you will be very impressed. You will be greeted with a smile by every passing staff member. They bend over backwards to help you, for example if they see you with luggage they will come running... More

We stayed here for two nights. Everything was nice and the staff were quite helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Great variety and especially important as we are strict vegans. Gym facility is just average, 3 treadmills and some other equipment

This is a very nice business hotel, but the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is really only 1 person there who speaks English. Yes, many people there can say a few phrases in English, but if you ask a question, you just get a blank stare. We found that there is one British... 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
