Shangri-La Hotel Ningbo

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were in Ningbo for business and leisure, and Shangra-La did not disappoint in either department. I actually did not know that this was a 5-star hotel when we booked, so we were amazed from the moment we walked in. The staff was the most professional AND amicable we have ever encountered when it came to personal pleasure (first name basis by the time we left, from managers to front desk to head chef) and attention to detail for our business meetings was also top shelf. The breakfast was out of this world, amenities were striking, and the music in the lounge was the most amazing we have ever encountered. And for a price that we didn't think a 5-star hotel could afford. We felt like we were at "home" -- one we couldn't afford, even though we could! Many thanks, Joshua and crew!

I have no idea what management was thinking when they didn’t renew Vladimir and Diane’s contract. The new duet isn’t on the same level. I have been staying here 35-40 nights a year for many years. I always looked forward to a nice dinner in the lobster bar, great wine and listening to 5 star entertainment. It’s now 2 star amateur hour. I’ve decided to stay at the Marriott. I mandated my employees do the same. Come On guys! fix this please !

Had visited Ningbo with a few families and children during holidays. Ningbo was only a 2 hours drive from Shaoxing. So we visited often. It's one of the best hotels in Ningbo. We enjoyed the breakfast spread. A lot of vegetarian options. The pool was good. Children enjoyed a lot. The rooms were really good. Excellent view as well. Totally recommend this hotel.

Comfortable, well appointed hotel. My room was quiet and had beautiful views across the river. The bathroom was very large with both bath and shower. Breakfast was plentiful and staff very friendly. Even the Chef pointed out some local treats. Breakfast was however very, very busy. I believe there was a large conference on. Maybe they could set aside some of the big tables so single people could have the option to share breakfast and not have to wait so long.

decided to.stay there at Christmas 2018 and it was really lovely. The service was great and we got upgraded to a suite! Amazing view from it at night and it was really big. The club lounge area was very good especially in the evenings. Breakfast was very good but preferred the main restaurant rather than the lounge as it was bigger. Good value for the money and an ideal place to stay if you are travelling to Ningbo. It will meet your expectations of a Shangri La Hotel.

Not a bad 5 star hotel but somehow did not quite live up to its promise, perhaps because we had a very disappointing experience in the Chinese restaurant - very slow and average and it was almost empty apart from the VIP room - but also because of a few other details - non-functioning spot bulb over desk, only one green teabag in room and the most expensive wine by the glass of any hotel in which I have stayed in China for the last 5 years (apart from one perfectly palatable one at an oddly cheap RMB 40! The check out lady giggled when I replied to her question truthfully about my stay! On a more positive note the river view from our 22nd floor room was great, the room was comfortable, the breakfast was fine and the service quite good. Rather pricey at over RMB 1000 inc taxes

The Shangri-La is located in the heart of the city about 45 to 60 minutes from the airport. This one is nicer than the one in Xiamen, CN. The rooms are excellent as is the service throughout the hotel. Like most hotels in China expect 25 + floors. Places nearby that you can walk to like small convenience stores during normal hours. Club lounge level is a nice choice for an upgrade, with breakfast and light dinner snacks. Happy hour included starts at 1730 every day. A lot of business travelers land here for the time in China, If you pay for the upgrade to Club Lounge you will have access to meet with suppliers, a business center, conference rooms. There is Internet throughout. If you have never been, not that you will not have access to Facebook, or Google and several other channels that you are used to in US. Taxi is always available, I do not know the cost as we travel by private car. There is a Uber type service, inquire within. We have stayed here multiple times with no complaints. The beef burger, (hamburger) from room service is excellent.

Beautiful hotel property, most of the staff has sufficient knowledge of english, all of them were nice, kind and helpfull. Public spaces are super clean. Beautiful gym, great swimming pool and spa. Rooms are clean and comfortable as well. Great food and service in the western restaurant.

Very good service specially in the Horizon Lounge. Good breakfast. Helpful staff and excellent costumer service. The room service is keeping the rooms very clean, several times a day. My favourite Hotel in Ningo.

Of all the vacations I ever took. This is the first time I ever actually stayed in the room when the housekeeper cleaned the room. Sharan was an absolute pleasure. I’m actually glad I stayed in the room while she was cleaning the room. Very polite and sweet. She kept saying she felt bad disturbing me but I was glad she took her time so I would be able to talk to her longer. One of the reasons why I would come back to this hotel! Great service!!!
