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staff in coffee shop , could not communicate in English, room view to some event Halls, see picture included, and outdated room furnishing .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
At check in the offer tea and a hot towel. Stayed one night on business and will find a different hotel next time I am in Ningbo. They stuck me in a different tower of the hotel, not the main part. The room was super small the shower leaked so the bathroom floor was completely flooded. The bed was hard and uncomfortable Breakfast was awful, no fresh "western" options.
Location - very good - close to the railway station. Rooms - very clean - bright - spacious Gym - needs to be upgraded - small and outdated Wifi - decent speed Breakfast - excellent but typically chinese Overall excellent value for money. Very Highly recommended.
I think the management is changed, they are renovating everything currently enjoying their new renovated lobby bar. looking forward to seeing the other things. Their English skills may be improved, but you can look for their lobby attendant for English service.
Always feels like at home whenever back to Hojo Ningbo. Outstanding service, shout out to Bastian and Fiona two amazing staff who taken care of our needs. They did a marvelous job! Quick process from the Reception team, warm service while having breakfast at the Western Restaurant! Small tips from the Lounge, ask a polite request to get in the balcony. They have a pretty view from the 19th floor!
