I stayed here on business on the 5th April. The hotel seemed quite palacial when entering the premises. Check in was easy enough, 15th floor, room 22, the room appeared ok but was actually quite dirty and things like the paintwork had handprints and marks on it, the door looked as though it may have been forcedon previous occassions and didn't inspire confidence in terms of safety. Couldn't operate the shower and had to aks for someone to come and show me that one but the picture on the wall didn't make it look obvious. No wifi in the room but they do supply it if you ask.
We ate in the hotel in the evening in their restaurant and the food was ok, some chinese food and meats were constantly brought out from the grill and carved in fornt of you and they were very tasty.
Breakfast was served up until 9.30am which I thought was a joke, given that it was Sunday morning and I almost missed it and quite honestly, by the time I did get there, i may as well have missed it. It was absolutely awful as an offering......nothing much there at all, managed a bowl of muesli and 2 bits of toast once I had the toaster switched back on by a member of staff. Not very pleasing and definitely not the best start to the day after flying into Shanghai the day before.
The beds were quite possibly the worst things I've ever experienced, it was like sleeping on a concrete floor and I woke up during the night with a dead leg.....definitely the worst beds I've experienced anywhere in the world in my 47 years......
One review I can see whilst writing this refers to chocolates being left on the bed after a turn down service.........perhaps thats a different level of service that that traveller had as there was nothing like that in evidence for myself or my host who booked it.
Yes, a smoky smell everywhere is in evidence but it's made all the owrse by the fact that pretty much most of the rest of the world have adopted smoking bans in public places.

This hotel is great value! Approx $80 per night but equivalent to an Australian 4 star hotel. Lovely small touches like chocolates on your bed after the evening turn down service, openable windows, good air conditioning. Great service! The only two things that I didn't like about the hotel was firstly the breakfast, not worth it, and secondly the foyer always smells of smoke but this is China.

Our family of 4 stayed in a suite at the Ningbo World Hotel for 3 nights. The suite only had 2 beds, but there was enough room in the living area to put 2 cots for our teenagers. Our boys complained about the cots because they were narrow and not very comfortable; on the other hand, they seemed to sleep alright and it was nice to be able to room together, instead of in 2 separate rooms (sometimes not so close to each other) as we had to do in every other hotel in China. There were 2 bathrooms (one tub), which was nice.

The hotel furniture was a little dark, but comfortable (except for the cots mentioned above). We really had no complaints. There was a separate spigot for drinking water, which was convenient (although we boiled the water anyway in the electric kettle). We were awakened our first morning by construction noises nearby, but the next 2 nights were weekend nights so it was not an issue. Service personnel were attentive on the whole. Breakfast was included and was the usual mixed Chinese and western fare. The location is very close to a large outdoor mall and shopping area with night time fountain displays. The confluence of the 3 rivers is also within walking distance.

We enjoyed our stay at the Ningbo World Hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again.
