4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This 5 star hotel in the economic district of Ningbo is really a good value for money. The price is fair as the hotel facilities are top quality standard. The rooms on the 15th flior are big with a good view of the district. The heating / cooling system works perfectly. The breakfast has one of the widest varieties I have seen in the country. Wok station, frech part with waffels, cereals, sushi, etc. Staff is really helpful and friendly and they have a gym on the 18th floor which is really good. They have several running machines, eliptical ones, weights and muscular machines.

Never expect a hotel so established and spacious for business traveller. When i was there, this foreign dance troupe also staying in same hotel. Everyone in the troupe seems to rave about the room size, service & hospitality. Me too! The room was simply luxurious, bed was good, bathroom is superd welcoming! Moreover, we got very good rates by booking online!

Even better experience than JW Marriot. Very impressed by its decoration and breakfast. The lighting made me feel very comfortable. Always warmly welcomed by the staff. WIFI was slow especially in the evening. 很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好很好

I received the same high standard of personal service at the Howard Johnson IFC Plaza. Hospitality is great as is the attentiveness of all staff. However, the Business Centre only consists of a single PC with Chinese language software. I remember there was a time when the Business Centre actually had multiple PC's with English software. I was unable to print or use the Business Centre and actually went to the Pan Pacific Hotel only 500yards down the street. The curious thing was that a list of services was printed in both English and Chinese with pricing. Yet, it is impossible to use the English language service. Since no such service is actually provided for English-speaking guests, the management may want to remove any reference to a Business Centre as it creates a false impression. In future, I know to use the Pan Pacific Hotel for any of my Business Centre needs.

After intensive working day, need a rest in a peaceful and customer dedicated hotel ? Here is the place for you in Ningbo. You can enjoy a peaceful and well optimized room with high level of comfort. The bed is very nice. After finishing few business, you can sleep without any noise and enjoy the fantastic breakfast buffet to restart again a good day. Congratulations.

I have stayed at the Howard Johnson IFC Plaza since 2012. This was my sixth trip to Ningbo, this year. With one exception, when the Howard Johnson IFC Plaza was overbooked, I have always stayed at the Howard Johnson. I have found the Howard Johnson to be consistent in its quality of service. The staff are attentive and quite often, they go out of there way to provide quality service.

I had heard from another American that the Howard Johnson's IFC plaza was the best hotel in Ningbo, and certainly it was very nice. The rooms were big, beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were nice and big as well. There was even an iron and ironing board which I put to good use. The gym was small but nicely equipped and I made good use of that as well. I like Chinese noodles for breakfast, and they did not disappoint. And the price was amazing! If you want to stay in a comfortable hotel in Ningbo this is a good choice.

This hotel is wonderful! The rooms are amazing and the staff are so kind and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable with a large bed and room to move around. The bathroom is fabulous with a shower and seperate bathtub. We wanted to connect our computer to the television and the hotel staff found the cable we needed and set it up. Every time we asked for anything, the staff were ready and willing. If I had to speak of anything that could be improved, it would be this; we loved the hotel so much we decided to stay another night. I had to book through an online travel agent again in order to get a discount. I would suggest if you have a customer already in your hotel, who wants to stay longer, don't make them jump through hoops to get the best rate. We also enjoyed the food here. We chose the rate which included breakfast each morning, and it was most definitely worth it, with a great variety. Two of the nights we also enjoyed the dinner buffet which was delicious. They had a good mix of western and chinese food. All in all, we did not want to leave and are very much looking forward to returning some day.

Large rooms and bathrooms. Friendly service with accommodating staff. A lot of choices for breakfast. Late night room service was good too. Did not have time to walk the grounds but seems a little far from any shopping or sights.

It was a business trip for the first time to Ningbo. The hotel is good, tidy and service is excellent. For non Chinese the breakfast menu is limited. The hotel in new area very far from the malls and city center. Wifi is free but the signal is not good. The stuff is friendly.
