Great service and locationPosted Nov 30, 2013
This is my home away from home. I always stay here when I visit Ningbo and it is always excellent. The staff is so friendly and definitely a 5 star hotel.

Great location, recommended hotelPosted Jul 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a great hotel for business travellers. Staff were super polite and although we only stayed there for one night, we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we happened to be in Ningbo for travel, whether it be business or leisure.

Great HotelPosted Mar 26, 2013
Pros: Room comfort & service
Cons: Food prices & overheated rooms
Location: Central - ok
Great hotel & great service. Rooms very comfortable & bed great. Food very expensive though - Western prices Only negative was that the rooms were overheated at 24c even when heater turned off. Made it difficult to get full nights sleep Would stay again

Not ideal for family vacationPosted Feb 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
More of a business hotel, does not offer much in terms of leisure. People smoking around the training room made it impossible for me to do my daily run as the air was toxic. Staff wants to help but most of them speak very basic English or none at all. For a few days during a business trip this place might be an okay choice. For a vacation... no way.

Best Deal in NingboPosted Mar 21, 2012
I travel 3 months out of the year experiencing many different hotels Little older hotel, showing some signs of wear and tear in bathroom But that is only negative comment I can say Staff is one of the best I encounter - very warm and friendly They must make customer satisfaction as their top priority and is very prevalent My second stay - enjoyed it more - terrific bfast buffet Upon check in you are greeted with spot of tea and hot towel Upon arrival to your room, butler promptly rings the door introducing themselves and offer card with their numbers.

Great home away from homePosted Jan 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
When you end up in a city like Ningbo, it's usually to get some very specific business related goals accomplished. My business has me in Ningbo 3-4 times a year for the past 6 years, and I've found the Hojo to be the best in terms of price/customer service. It's a better value than the Shangri-La and better service than the Sheraton. When you arrive, pretty bell-girls take your bag, and someone brings you a warm cup of tea as you check in. I cannot tell you how many times I've stumbled into the Hojo exhausted from factory inspections and really felt that I've arrived home. Facilities is top notch - gym, huge pool, bar, 2 restaurants, everything you'd expect from a Chinese 5 star. The only tip I have is to have them give you a room in the new tower (the higher one). Tower B is older and not nearly as renovated as Tower A. Besides that, go nuts, the Hojo in Ningbo is awesome for business travel.

Always my top choicePosted Nov 15, 2011
Howard Johnson Ningbo is outstanding. Stayed here 2 years ago and was very impressed, so it was my first hotel choice when returning to Ningbo. Facility is very well maintained and very clean. Staff is second to none with every staff member extending a pleasant greeting and any assistance as needed. I left an uncustomary tip for the housekeeper (as I stayed for several days), and found it untaken after returning to my room. As a single female traveler, safety is always a priority and is never a concern at the hotel or the surrounding area. Location is great, next to Moon Lake park area, shopping, restaurants, public transit, etc. Would recommend to any traveler - business, pleasure, family, etc. Worth every penny.
