Located in Wanda Plaza, Ningbo’s bustling shopping and entertainment center, this five-star property blends Sofitel’s signature French style with traditional Chinese design elements. Soaring marble columns and a striking chandelier provide a dramatic entrance in the lobby and bold red silks feature in the rooms. All 290 guestrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the city or the gardens, comfy MyBeds and glass-walled bathrooms with separate tubs and showers. Kick back in the Touch Spa’s heated indoor pool or indulge in an authentic Chinese massage. On the food front, pick from four restaurants, including Koko for teppanyaki and sushi and Lavish for fancy French dining. Tuck into a Parisian high tea in the sip a top-notch wine at the Le Club bar.
In the Area
Ningbo is rich in ancient architecture. In the old district, you can visit Tianyi Pavilion (East Asia’s biggest ancient private library), the Drum Tower (built in AD 821), Tianfeng Pagoda (the tallest building in ancient Ningbo, with seven stories above ground and seven stories below), as well as the 1,400-year-old Moon Lake. The city is famed for a variety of light dishes, such as rice dumplings, steamed buns and cakes stuffed with red bean or lotus nut paste. Try them at Gangyagou, a snack bar in business since 1926. Being a port, Ningbo is the starting point of China’s ancient Maritime Silk Road, which led to Africa centuries ago. Silk boutiques are everywhere in the city; bargain hard.
How to Get There
Am glad had choose to stay in this hotel since its my 1st visit to Ningbo. All staffs I met are friendly and response to my enquiry with a warm smile. Special thanks to restaurant manager Chester Thang for his good recommendation on the meals. He is very helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. Since I have a sensitive digestion system, he is able to attend to my needs which enable me to have most of my meals in the hotel restaurant. Will definately see me as a repeated guest.
As usual a very nice hotel with business meeting facilities as well as good restaurants. In special I found the Japanese Restaurant on 5th floor execellent. It's really worth a visit. Also the Chinese Restaurant at the same floor is above usual standard.
I regularly stay at this hotel in Ningbo.
It’s my preferred hotel here as it’s got such a great mix of location (next to Wanda shopping centre which has some wonderful restaurants), Starbucks next door, fabulous Sofitel restaurant breakfast variety and quality, comfortable rooms ideal for a business traveller.
And the service at reception and the Concierge are just so quick to attend to your needs.
I’ll be back next month.
