This is the one place that I felt home during my China trip. Goodsun is as the full name implies a business apartment. The complex is comprised of two buildings. I have stayed at building A which houses realively large two bedroom duplex apartments in the first sixfloors. All of the rooms are furnished with 2005 IKEA furniture, the kitchen, the bathrooms, and the living areas were all contemporary furnished IKEA way. Wood floors, three A/C units, two big-screen TV's, washer and dryer in the bathroom, fridge, micro-wave and counter-top stoves are all standard amenities in these types of units. The reception staff are always friendly, efficient, they offer train ticket bookings, fax, mail services. The location is outside downtown Ningbo, just eat of the Yangtze river.
You want to feel like you are home, this is the place. Home away from home. The also offer long-time lease, the general manager's name was Richard (as of 1/2006). You can contact him, he is friendly and speaks English.
Oh, when we were at Goodsun for Spring Festival for the third time, they threw a great fireworks show. Haven't seen anything like it. I simply love everything that they do, and the way that they do it.
We stayed at Mirage Hotel just off TianYi Square. The location was marvellous as we were able to walk around to many sights and still be fairly close to our hotel. The tourist guides I consulted before our trip suggested hotels either by the Southern Railway Station or the Bund, but I found we were smack bang in the middle of where we wanted to be staying at the Mirage.
The hotel itself was a nice standard 4-star hotel, but as Ningbo is a fairly small place, hotel rates were affordable. The breakfast offered a good selection of food suitable to both Western and Chinese palates.
Location, location, location.
