Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Stopped at this hotel a couple of times when visiting friends in Ningbo. Rooms are very comfortable and service excellent. Hotel staff are excellent and there is an English guest relations manager who was particularly helpful.

Room Tip: We had a suite which was excellent can't say about other rooms but have no reason to believe the...

Stayed one night. After the chaos in the airport since we arrived on the last flight and everything was closed. It was nice to walk into a hotel of friendly staff. The cold towel and drink upon check in was most welcomed. The rooms were nice and the butler service was much appreciated. Breakfast was a good selection. Upon chek out they ave me a memer card and a small discount.

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and it is liked being greeted as part of the family each time I return. The Hotel Staff are wonderful, very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble. One of the Staff named Blue actually escorted me to a nearby tour office and waited for me to escort me back to the hotel. The Hotel itself is imaculate, the amenities are great, the cafe, dining rooms and bakery are first class. I like the location because I like to walk rather than take taxis to most places. It is across the road from the beautiful Moon Lake, close to some good restaurants and the Tianyi Library, one of the oldest libraries in China. It is also a good walk through local neighbour hoods to Tianyi Square, the main shopping area where you can grab a pair of Gucci Shoes, have a coffee at Starbucks, grab a quick meal at Kung Fung (the chinese equivilant to fast food) then get your groceries at Tesco before heading back to the hotel to relax.

Rooms are nice and clean with everything you could desire if you need to work. The service is outstanding and there is always someone around to help you with everything. Live music in the lobby, ok pool area and nice breakfast in the both restaurants. I liked the one that is not located next to the lobby best (more western food).
About 10-15 minutes from downtown and the river where you can find a nice Greek restaurant.
I only have one thing to complain about. Poeple were smoking in the non smoking area of the bars and sings and even the poor waitress could not stop them.

I don't usually write reviews but the hotel upgraded me to a club floor suite. Assigned a personal butler and provided wonderful service. I am a woman business traveler and the fact that a lot of the front desk, the bell(person) and butler were all women made it doubly nice. they were always helpful and I noticed not just to the guests but also to anyone visiting the guest. Some Chinese hotels can be very nice to guests but treat local visitors rudely. I was very happy to see this is not the case with this hotel.

i have stayed at nicer hotels all over the world and with the exception of some truly personalized boutique hotels, I have not had better service and this is a large business hotel so this is doubly impressive. They will iron for you, deliver food in the evening, including a glass of warm milk, and add rose petals in the toilet. My butler delivered a mouse pad when she noticed I was using my computer. I didn't have a mouse but it was very thoughtful nonetheless.

Will return!

Room Tip: Club floors well worth the extra money.

This is a perfect hotel with friendly staff. Everybody is very friendly. A few restaurants are available, there is a lobby bar with draught German beer. Self service restaurant provides a wide range of food. Every room has anything one needs!
