We only stayed in the HJ for one night but I was amazed by the service levels, you could not turn a corner without being greeted by someone wanting to help.

My first stay was faultless. Second time around they put me in the annex wing. it meant you have a smaller room, worse view, and breakfast is in a low ceiling, dingy, miserable place with limited food selection and cramped feeling in the annex basement - not in the grand spacious bright impressive breakfast room of the main building.

This is a newer property and is very nice and comfortable. Internet everywhere worked well. Breakfast buffet excellent. Rooms and bathrooms perfect. The service was personable and they tried hard to speak English. This is a smoking property as most are in China. Ask for non smoking room, they have them.

At the time of writing, I am coming to the end of my second stay at this nice hotel. Any regular visitor to China will tell you how things are changing fast. Ningbo is no exception. Construction is going on EVERYWHERE, and the typhoon and flooding in October 2013 wasn't much help. Happily, the HoJo was not directly affected. But... More
