This is not what we know as Howard Johnson's in the USA. This is an up scale hotel with nice amenities, comfortable rooms, good restaurants and a very good breakfast and dinner buffet. The breakfast buffet is included with the cost of the room. They serve you a hot towel and tea at check-in and check-out. The rooms are well... More

Good services and clean room. Welcome drinks were served upon check in. Breakfast was great with many varieties. Hotel Japanese restaurant's food was quite basic and not up to expectation. My room toilet door hinge was quite noisy, suggest to do room maintenance regularly. Overall great stay with reasonable price.

They have recently remodeled the lobby lounge. It used to have an occasional singer and you could get any beer or wine on the menu. Now they don't have 2/3 of what is listed, the English speaking staff is largely gone, and they no longer have peanuts. The club lounge on the 19th floor has a happy hour from 17:30-20:30... More

I spent a night earlier this week, Room 1812 with a great view. The check-in was a bit slow, but the front-desk staff was all smiles, they brought in a cup of tea and fresh towelet. The lobby at the entrance is simply super huge, it looks like a ballroom. They are having some improvement works at the moment, but... More

Average hotel. Needs some update. Location is good. Club Lounge awful. Do not expect anything there. Went there at 9.00 pm and the only people there were two members of the staff. Nobody and nothing else. Could only drink juices. Glass of white wine at extra cost. Buffet breakfast is OK. Problems to accept master card issued by European bank.

Howard Johnson Plaza Ningbo is considered as one of the top hotels in Ningbo. It has over 450 rooms. The hotel was fully booked and I got an upgrade to a uite with butler service. I can therefore give not give any comments about the standard rooms. The over sized double bed was comfortable, the bathroom is clean and bright.... More

This Hotel has a very nice buffet in the evening. Everything included, even the beer which was surprisingly very cold, which is mostly unusual in chinese restaurants or hotels. I would recooment this hotel to all others.

One of the best hotels we've ever stayed. We stayed in executive rooms with free entry to the executive lounge with alcoholic and soft drinks and appetizers. Even they didn't serve red wine there they provided us with the whole bottle for free. Rooms were fantastic - spacious, clean and well equiped. Breakfasts were excellent with huge choice. Outstanding service... More

Its just the best I have stayed in China. Everything is perfect the Snack Bar with free food and drinks was a real suprize. And the in house meals first class. The bed like being on a cloud and enough pillows to have 10 pillow fights, why so many I don`t know. The rates where well worth the cost.
