This appears to be a new hotel and the rooms are modern spacious and very welcoming. The room came with a breakfast which was OK but did seem to be more biased towards Chinese preferences however as a westerner I was still able to get a decent breakfast. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. I used to stay at another 5 star Howard Johnson resort. But this one is most likely to be a 4 star. Hotel itself was nice and clean. Staff was friendly. Room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was good too. It's a see-through style with blinds for privacy if needed so....

This will be a great place if you are a chain smoker! Staff and guests seem oblivious to "No Smoking" signs. In the restaurant, the lobby lounge, the lobby and even the elevators - smoke everywhere. Many Younger staff members seem more interested in their smart phones than serving guests. Hallways are NOT air conditioned, so be prepared to sweat...

I was surprised to see a Howard Johnson in Ningbo! The check in was efficient and the room size was good even with the king bed. The closet space was ample with good full size hangers. There was no iron and ironing board which I feel should be a standard. The internet was free but poor quality and there were...

Pretty much what you would expect from a Chinese Business Hotel. I have stayed in many worse than this and therefore no surprises. Only a one night stay following flight from UK via Shanghai a good night sleep was required and best part of the Hotel are the beds. Really comfortable. The Japanese restaurant Tepanyaki also is really good, and...

This hotel is located 30 Kms far from Ningbo. It has all the comforts you need for a comfortable staying even if the cleaning is not always accurate. The quality of the breakfast is good and also the choices are pretty wide but sometime supplies are lacking. In the middle of this year the new sky train should starts to...

We arrived at the hotel late in the evening after a long flight. As we were getting ready to bed we found a large blood stain on the bed, which the hotel staff tried covered with a white thing sheet.
