Another pleasent stay at the Shangri-La Hotel Ningbo and they did not disappoint me this time either. They lived up to their high standards and gave a superb service. I will stay there next time I visit Ningbo for sure.

We stayed at two Shangi-La properties in China - Ningbo and Guangzhou. I've reviewed the Guangzhou property separately.

Everything about this hotel is first class - the rooms, the service and the amenities. Unlike the Guangzhou Shangri-La, the In Ningbo property is located downtown with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. We upgraded to a Horizon Club room. It didn't cost much extra and afforded us private checkin/check-out, as well as happy hour and the private Horizon Club lounge - all on the 28th floor.

The breakfast buffet is nice, although not as huge or diverse as the buffet in Guangzhou. Towards the end of breakfast service, it tended to get more depleted and tired-looking than I would have expected.

Helpful Hint: If you're eating in the restaurant (the one on the 2nd floor where the buffet is) and you're a non-smoker, request a table towards the back. Smoking is not allowed in the restaurant, but people do smoke in the adjacent lobby near the front of the restaurant and it tends to drift in.

Room Tip: If you get a "River View" room on one of the upper floors, you'll have a magnificent v...

Excellent service and accommodations. The Lobster Bar and grill is very nice and so is the live music to, especially on Saturdays, it just takes off in Latino rhythms.
The lounge is very nice and spacious, pity that happy hour closes so early.

Ningbo is South of Shanghai, China. The city is a trade center for electric motors, fabrics, shutters and a host of other home trade items. There are a number of world class hotels in the city center area, but the Shangri-La is the standout hotel. From the moment you arrive, personal service is literally thrust upon you.

The rooms are well maintained, and each room offers you a view of the three rivers junction. If inclined, spend the few extra dollars for the Club Level. Lovely breakfast, tea hour, and evening cocktail hour with appetizers, that one would find in only the five star restaurants. The staff treats you like a long lost friend, and after only one visit, you are remembered for your likes and dislikes.

Gregor Wateler, the General Manager, provides a European experience, and Tobias Unger, the Executive Chef, and his team provide enjoyable gastronomical heights in the Club Room, as well as the Lobster Bar and other resturants within the hotel.

The city center is just a five minute walk across the river. You shopping experience is intensified by Luxury named shops, (say: Gucci, Rolex, etc..) as well as local merchants. Historical shopping and tourist areas are a four minute cab ride away.

Great property, location, management, and personal service make the Shangri-La, Ningbo the choice place to stay in Ningbo.

Room Tip: Club Level is the way to go.

My fiance was staying with this hotel and one night was being sent to hospital at a sudden, we called the hotel from the hotspital at almost late mid night to ask for a car service and the hotel really can make it (and charge us a very reasonable price just like a normal car pick up cost) and what's more, they sent two concierge staffs, together with a wheel chair to take care of my fiance all the way long, this is really detail minded and caring and they handle the situation really well! Even on next day morning the hotel called up to the room and make sure my fiance is doing ok. We never can imagine in the second / third line of city in China can provide this type of professional and excellent service just like the hotels in any big international city! For sure we will choose to stay with Shangri-la group again and when next time go to Ningbo, this will be our first choice for no doubt! We recommend this hotel to any traveller!
