Howard Johnson Plaza Ningbo

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at this very same hotel more than a year ago, or was it 18 months? Things have improved greatly, hence this second review. Check-In goes smoothly, less than 5 minutes. I am given Room 1111. 6 lifts to go up and down, meaning waiting time is to the minimum. The room is spacious with a separate seating room, and it offers all the stuff one might need while inside their room, including a near-professional iron, comfy slippers and plushy bathrobes. The bathroom is well-lite and accommodates a shower and a bathtub. The desk is wide enough and the seat is comfortable for those long hours spent in front of the screen. More importantly, the Wi-Fi is extremely fast at all times, surely the fastest connection I have experienced in China. Breakfast starts at 0600 am, which means one has time to enjoy the limited variety of food, including international & Chinese dishes. There is a corner dedicated to pastries, which are obviously not baked on side, except for the so-called French toasts. Although decent, the food could be of better quality as to match the newly established standards of this Hotel. Check-Out at 0900 am was a bit busy, but the front-desk staff worked efficiently, and I left in no time. There are still some renovation works going on, and banging, drilling and hammering can be heard as early as 0730 am. All in all, I had a pleasant and efficient stay. This Hotel has managed to reveal all its potential. The staff is professional, attentive and goes out of their way to help. This is a sure bet.

Beautiful Hotel!! Straight across from the amazing Moon Lake Park which is lovely, could have spent a couple of days wandering through it. Check in easy, very attentive staff . Highly recommend!!! Only about a 10 min walk to Tianyi Square.

I stayed for various business requirements. The room was very hot on arrival and took overnight to cool from 26 to 23 degrees which was only achieved by leaving a loyalty card in the slot whilst I was out taking my room key with me. Beds are very comfy with a range of pillow softness options. View not great as there is a lot of building work happening outside currently. Breakfast - lots of variety including fruits and omelettes. Not great on English breakfast although options are available. Remember it is China and therefore food is bound to be different. Lastly gym great. Quiet when I used it but with modern facilities.

This is a luxury hotel with very nice and helpful staff. Although some speak poor English. I had a superior suite in block B. A Spacious room. Sadly the cleaning was not five star quality. And the wi-fi was rather weak mostly, as in many Chinese hotels. As I personally was not so fond of the surroundings I won't come back to this hotel again.

The hotel was very good. There's tea service in the lobby. The staff don't speak very well English with the exception of a few that spoke better than the rest. The breakfast was included but we didn't eat the breakfast at all. It mainly catered to the Chinese. We were in Business Superior Suite, and our room was excellent, minus the fact that we were facing behind the building and it was full of garbage, so the beautiful view went out the window. We tried the restaurant for lunch and we order Lamb Chops and Salmon with Seafood Risotto dish, but only received the salmon dish after trying to explain to the server that we only received one of our dish, she went back and brought us another Salmon Risotto dish after 20 mins. The food was good but a little pricey for what we ordered. Keep in mind in the whole seafood Risotto dish probably had one forth of a shrimp, so it doesn't classify as seafood. All in all the hotel was exceptional with some minor glitches.

A nice and clean hotel in a very nice area , close to center of ningbo. 50 RMB from the ningbo airport and 15 RMB from the ningbo train station. Breakfast is good and complete buffet is offer in reasonable price

Nicely oriented in the center of Ningbo and only 30 minutes away from the air port. Very good choice for business trip. The room needed a little bit better clean up especially in the details it closets and drawers.

Great service fast check in , hot towel and hot tea while check in. I stay one night , room is spacious and comfortable , different tower so try to know which tower you will get to avoid any surprise. Breakfast is ok , but need to add more choices .

Wonderful service as soon as you walk in, hot towel and hot tea while you check in. Great attention to detail in service but the rooms need a bit of updating , turn Dow service, as well as robes, sleepers, umbrella, safe , fridge all provided. But several items show quite a bit of wear and tear, bed headboard, mildew in shower, room size a bit small. We were in the other building B. So overall this hotel could have been a 5 stars but because of lack of attention to some details, staff in coffee shop , could not communicate in English, room view to some event Halls, see picture included, and outdated room furnishing . Because of location, and price will be back , knowing what to expect next time.

I stay almost every time when visit China in this hotel. They are in downtown very close to Train station (taxi course around 15 rmb). room very clean and spacious, Always great meals, Service very helpful, speaking english :) Recommnad it to everybody
