My previous visits to this hotel were somewhat surprising (good) as it seems like a much nicer hotel in comparison to the Howard Johnson chain in the US (which I would not even get close to.) The rooms were comfortable and clean and well equipped although the AC only seems to function in half of the hotel. However the management... More

Great rooms and amenities. Good breakfast buffet. cheap rate. We had a dinner in one restaurant of the hotel at the second floor and it offers very cheap. Dimsum. Value for money. The hotel is 1hr by train to shanghai. And 30min by taxi —hotel to train station.

I spend one night in this hotel for business trip. The city is very quiet and clean, i love it. The hotel itself is the same. It's well managed, not too expensive, and the service is good. It's a good choice to stay. I recommend.

I went to the "Riviera" restaurant of the Howard Johnson Hotel at the Kaina Plaza for buffet dinner this evening (16/10/2014). At first I thought that, just my luck, my "Changzhou Curse" had followed me here as well. I better explain. It seems that, whenever I go to a hotel restaurant in Changzhou, I am surrounded by staff who have... More

Nice facilities, convenient location, with a good balance between cost and benefit. Good breakfast buffet, the only problem is that as in the must provinces of China, communication in english is complicated, even in the hotel. About a block of distance there is a nice river side to walk and run in the mornings, public transportation BRT just in front,... More

When my local colleagues booked me at a Howard Johnson hotel I was a bit apprehensive. The HJ brand in the US is not known for high quality rooms or service. However, when I entered the beautiful lobby I knew this was not a typical US HJ hotel. The hotel check in was efficient, and the rooms were large, well... More

I usually find it hard to find good hotels in China if you are not in the main city's such as Peking, Shanghai or Hangzhou. Frankly I have dreadful experiences. However, this hotel was not bad. Service was attentive and room very clean. Upon checking I was upgraded into a suite. With the one night only it did not do... More
