This is not your janky U.S. HoJo's. Excellent service; in fact, butler service! Yeah, the warm milk delivered before bed time helps you sleep. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were awesome with great views and the service was quite friendly. I was quite comfy here, and it was also centrally located, close to Tian Yi Ge (a highlight of... More

The hotel was dated but well maintained. I was very impressed with the service. The hotel offered complimentary night time snack and airport transfer. This was very exceptional among the many hotels I stayed at worldwide. Every staff member I encountered was courteous and helpful.

Booked a last minute deal to Ningbo from a Thursday to Saturday in June. We travelled on a high speed train from Shanghai. You can easily take a cab or even a bus (just 1 stop) from the train station to the hotel. Checking in was a breeze. We speak Mandarin so communication was not an issue. But I heard... More

Great hotel, I have stayed here many times and have never had any real issues, on the executive floors you always get a butler who is as attentive as you wish them to be, Sakura and Stephen looked after me very well on this visit. It was my birthday whilst U stayed here and was delighted to find a delicious... More

I have stayed at the Howard Johnson on at least 4 occasions. In fact I first came here just after it opened. When it was first opened it was just stunning but every time I come back its getting worse and worse. The issue is that they are charging Top dollar but delivering a second rate experience now. This hotel... More

Exquisite all round. Central Location. A true 5 Star. Downtown. 10 Minutes taxi ride from High Speed Station. City full of canals and waterways. Hotel has superb amenities and excellent on-site restaurants. The city's best seafood restaurant is a mere 20 minutes walk away.

The only positive thing: courtesy of some operators. For the rest, please forget it. Rooms are noisy, the traffic seems inside your room! Pillows full of spots. Dinner buffet crazy expensive (328 RMB!!!) for remaining stuffs from the breakfast! And poor continental breakfast buffet.

The service is good, and the room is huge. Breakfast spread is wide... There is a room housekeeper will daily comes in to ask you if you have any special request and anything she can help. They offer free ironing of clothes, FOB dessert or supper from 9-11pm. Generally no complaint at all especially paying at very reasonable price but... More
