If there is a Shangra-la on earth, this must be it; time to invent a 6-star class hotel!
Reviewed 2 months ago

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!

Bad entertainment at lobster bar
Reviewed 2 months ago

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 !

A wonderful stay and breakfast
Reviewed 3 months ago

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.

Very comfortable Hotel
Reviewed 3 months ago

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.

excellent stay
Reviewed 3 months ago

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.
