Have stayed here 4 times over the years and it remains a comfortable, well located hotel. Close to Moon Lake the location is perfect for a morning walk. There are hotels within walking distance and a wonderful (although pricey) Balinese Spa next door... you get what you pay for! Standouts are: Friendly and helpful staff, butler service, tea at check... More

This is not your janky U.S. HoJo's. Excellent service; in fact, butler service! Yeah, the warm milk delivered before bed time helps you sleep. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were awesome with great views and the service was quite friendly. I was quite comfy here, and it was also centrally located, close to Tian Yi Ge (a highlight of... More

The hotel was dated but well maintained. I was very impressed with the service. The hotel offered complimentary night time snack and airport transfer. This was very exceptional among the many hotels I stayed at worldwide. Every staff member I encountered was courteous and helpful.

Booked a last minute deal to Ningbo from a Thursday to Saturday in June. We travelled on a high speed train from Shanghai. You can easily take a cab or even a bus (just 1 stop) from the train station to the hotel. Checking in was a breeze. We speak Mandarin so communication was not an issue. But I heard... More

I have stayed at the Howard Johnson on at least 4 occasions. In fact I first came here just after it opened. When it was first opened it was just stunning but every time I come back its getting worse and worse. The issue is that they are charging Top dollar but delivering a second rate experience now.
