Room was nice and Wifi good, nice bath tub and big safe, free shower gel etc. TV remote did not work very well though. Nice pool and gym. The biggest issue was the food. Breakfast buffet had cereal but no bowls or spoons. Eventually I was given a teaspoon. Next day no spoons or milk and got given a ceramic rice spoon plonked in to my cereal bowl. When I asked if I could have a metal spoon she took it back out of my cereal bowl and put it back for other guests to use!

Tried to order room service. Went for eggs benedict with English muffin mushrooms hash brown and asparagus. Got 2 fried eggs some asparagus and some mushroom. Asked for it to be changed to the correct order and then got the same eggs and mushroom back (now cold) With two smiley potato fritters no English muffin. Tried explaining to the staff but after a while I gave up. I don't expect 100% correct replicas of western cuisine but I would like all items to be there and be warm as it is a 5 star hotel.
Luckily the hotel is next to the Wanda plaza so would suggest you just use the hotel to sleep in and eat out at the plaza where they have all sorts of different restaurants.

Excellent hotel in a good location to restaurants and shops.
The hotel is very clean and modern, with friendly staff, good service, amenities and rooms. The service in the sports bar though was non-existent, waited for a long time with staff walking by but no-one wanting to serve us. Never mind though, the small Jungle Bar directly behind the hotel is a far better alternative.

The Sofitel Wanda is a very nice 5-Star hotel. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious and everything is in good working condition, including the large safe (easily big enough for several laptop computers). There are 2 shopping malls nearby. 3 minutes walk to a mall with a WalMart, and 5 minutes in the other direction to another multi story mall.

Unfortunately, there is nothing open around breakfast time. The only nearby choice for breakfast is the hotel restaurant. Not even the local Starbucks opens until after 8:AM.

Overall a very nice hotel. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Be sure to get the breakfast package. There are no restaurants in walking distance open before 8:AM...

If there is anything that would challenge a hotel it probably is the experience and views of their guests that either visit the hotel frequently or are on an extended stay. Mine thus far is 5+ months. We are the guests that see it all and I would like to compliment the management and staff of the Sofitel Wanda Ningbo for a stay that has been more than comfortable.

The staff are always greeting you no matter where you cross paths, requests that I have made have always been attended to and in 5 months they do happen. The friendliness that one experiences just makes it even more pleasant.

The hotel has a decent gym and a indoor pool that is big enough to train in. Friendly relaxed experience at the lobby bar with really good lounge entertainment where you will often be greeted by one of the managers and a quick chat if they have time.

Also want to mention the exemplary treatment received by the team in the club lounge, they have a wonderful manager and everyone that I have met there have been just amazing including the students that are here just for a few months. Again one can see a good management style reflecting all the way from the top to the bottom.

This would be my hotel of choice when in Ningbo, thank you to everyone at Sofitel Wanda Ningbo.

Room Tip: In winter if you want a cooler room ask for North facing and lower floors, the higher you are the ho...
