There are many nice hotels in the city. Would you mind providing your budget or living place? Then I can find some hotels for you.
In addition, the transportation to Shanghai is convenient. You can take direct bullet train from Ningbo Railway Station to Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station.
Hope helpful!

Since the metro has stopped service at that time, you are suggested to take a taxi directly. It takes about 1 hour to get there and the fare is about CNY 150.

Yes, it’s safe and don’t worry too much.
