I recently stayed at this hotel while on business in Ningbo. It is chic and the luxury rooms make you feel like a multi-millionaire. The staff are very pleasant and there are a number of Europeans working at the hotel. The spa treatment was a little pricey but worth every penny. Breakfast is a massive buffet that suits both western and Chinese tastes. I am heading back to Ningbo this week and will book this hotel without hesitation. There is a huge shopping mall next to the hotel and it is well located...close to the train station if you are coming from Shanghai.
The bed was very comfortable, the staff was excellent! not ideal because must take taxi to train, airport, etc, but still not too far (about 15 minutes) and I will stay again.
