“Good Business Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Nanyuan Universe Deluxe Hotel is a 5-star business hotel in Ningbo. It is away from the central city and from the tourist areas but as a business hotel it is excellent. The views out the windows are of the city which seems to reach to the horizon.
The foyer is huge - it's like stepping into a palace. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable and have a desk to work at if needs be.
Breakfast was the usual buffet seen in good Asian hotels with a wide selection of Eastern and Western dishes.
Staff were attentive and courteous.

Room Tip: Try for a deal on the Executive floor

I only stayed one night but what a fantastic experience, service is excellent and despite being geared towards local business sector it is a very good international standard hotel. Fantastic rooms and an excellent choice of restaurants and food make this definitely a hotel I will be returning to. Highly recommended on all fronts.

I was here for one night for business.

Check in was quick and easy. I was in my room very qucikly and had my luggage delivered within 10 minutes.

We were upgraded to a beautiful room that included a dressing room and huge bathroom. The kinsize bed was comfortable and the view from the bath was very nice. The ammenties in the room were of excellent quality. The room was very clean and comfortable.

Wifi was included at no charge. Mhowever, I found the strenght of the signal and speed to be slow. I used my mini router with the LAN line and crated my own hotspot in my room. No problem!

I had a few meals. Lunch buffet was amazing and HUGE with lots od Eastern and a few Western dishes. Afternoon tea was simple but tasty with pizza, quiche, sandwiches and cakes. Breakfast was a vast selection of many different foods.

This was an excellent night's stay and had only wished I had had more time to explore the beautiful surroundings.

Stayed here for three nights, Standard rooms where reasonable in size. Internet connection was free cable broadband but you had to pay extra for Wifi. Buffet breakfast in the morning had a good selection of food to suit every taste. The hotel was centrally located for us, and they had a free shuttle to and from the airport if booked in advance. Staff where very helpful and organised a phone charger for me, until i was abke to buy one, not many of the staff speak english but we still managed to understand each other. Would stay here again.

This is a good 4 star hotel, with very impressive architectural aspects in the entrance halls. The rooms are impressive and good value for money at 990 RMB/night, with everything that one requires for either a sightseeing visit or for a business visit. The internet connection works reasonably well, but is slow. The breakfast area is very impressive and the breakfast buffet has a complete selection of European, Asian, American and Chinese dishes. The service is very good. The food in the hotel restaurants is nothing exceptional and there are other good restaurants in Ningbo. The hotel also offers a fitness room and large swimming pool that open at 7.30 am. There is also a sauna area that apparently offers a variety of services, in addition to the sauna.

The one area where the hotel is not good is the reception desk. Although everyone is very friendly and helpful, it takes ages to check in and the level of English spoken is not good.

There is a small shopping mall about 10 minutes walk from the hotel that ofefrs a lot of non-Asian foo, if you want a change from the excellent local restuarants.

Reasonable price, or actually better say "the quality leads the price!"

The spacy room (room 2109) made my biz trip relaxed even though it was only one night. The temp. control was right and precise. No unplesant smell.

Cleanliness was no doubt but the surprise I never found in any other hotels even the 5-star hotel is that their amenity is "L'occitane"....OMG!!

Breakfast menu was also great with various dishes and several menus were delicious, yes! I mean really delicious! (unlike some hotels that the breakfast menu will only make you survive the day...I know how you feel!)

However, no one has only positive side - Nanyuan also have some negative score in my mind.
1) the electrically-operated curtain - I found some error as the curtain hook was out of order and made the curtain didn't close while I push the button.
2) TV - There are 2 TVs, one in the bed room and another one embedded on the wall in the bathroom (in front of the bath tub). However, the one in bathroom was malfunction and couldn't be open. Anyhow, since I came to the hotel quite late night and need to sleep rather than enjoyed bath with their bath salt provided in the box, I decided not to request for fixing or room change.

I have no comment on the location as I had no time to survey surroundings.

This is luxury at an affordable price. Huge bathroom, fully furnished, large bed and bedroom. Nothing is missing. Great spa and swimming pool. Internet works perfectly. In every room, you can also find a box with all the stationery you need. Perfectly clean.
The only drawback is the distance from the city center.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. You will have two full windows which open on the city. Rooms are located from...
