A hotel which is a part of Sheraton I wonder as the breakfast area is common. The rooms are neat, hotel lobby is ok ok as compared to Sheraton next door. Have stayed in Sheraton too so the rooms are smaller compared to Sheraton, but neat and clean. Room which I got was facing Sheraton so not too much to... More

Great bargain for a quality hotel on the same block as Sheraton. Good location with busy local scene for after work exploring... a Starbucks across the street, same street has an excellent Irish pub (open late, maybe 2am), a Swiss ice cream outlet across from Starbucks, nice shops and ample simple Chinese restaurants nearby!

I have a feeling that cleaning team is on loooooong strike. Rooms are smeling rather bad, and I was afraid to walk barefoot on carpets... More

I recommend this hotel for business trips to Ningbo; positioned immediately outside the city center and the staff speaks english very fluently. The breakfast is ok, and the cakes are really delicious!

We had a lovely stay in this hotel. Most of the comments in other reviews are true. The "quirks" as one reviewer put it actually make this hotel a good choice for those who don't want to pay twice the price for the Sheraton next door. The decor is slightly dated but the carpet in our spotless room was new.... More
