Whilst creating the centrepiece of the recently completed Seaworld shopping and dining precinct, no direct vehicular access is available to the reception, requiring you to carry your luggage about 100m across the paved mall area to reach the Hotel. Whilst the rooms present satisfactorily to a typical 4 star standard, the bed was rock hard, and being tall, I had... More

Regardless of the fact that the ship is permanently on land this is still a ship. It has pros and cons and it was hard to decide if I should give it a 3 or 4 star rating. It is a novel experience. The room and bathroom were bigger than I expected on a ship. The air conditioning was good.... More

The hotel is in the middle of Sea World, best location with a lot of restaurants, bars and night clubs. The hotel itself was renovated recently and the rooms are ok. Food in the German restaurant is very good. Staff is average, always helpful and sometimes not good in English...

Best thing about this hotel is it's location but the room was not bad at all. I thought it was reasonably clean and comfortable. Low ceilings and slanted floor as other reviewers have noted but if you book a room on an old ship you would probably not be surprised by that. The bed is very hard which is pretty... More

Searching for the right hotel within shenzhen I found this cruise inn quite intriguing. We stayed here for 2 nights and it's like being in the open sea but is surrounded by leisure plazas, bars and resto! At first we felt a bit of dizziness going into our room and even inside the bathroom was a bit strange until we... More

Have you ever slept in a boat surrounded by land? This is your chance! Perfectly located in downtown Shenzhen, many venues nearby as is the daily evening water show. Rooms are clean, good beds and good breakfast, although the sound level of CNN could be softer. It is a real boat so low ceilings, and round windows and slightly curved... More

Have stayed here twice. It is okay as it is near what could be classed as an expat area with lots of bars and restaurants. This is good as both times have stayed for 7 days. No Gym, No Pool, No Room Service as this is purely a hotel. I would probably not stay here again but worth staying once... More

Stayed for one night while on business but that was one night too much. Part of the ship has been converted to a nightclub and let me tell you it's no fun trying to sleep when all you can hear is loud and I mean very loud music at 3am! Called the duty manager who told me there was nothing... More

Successfully booked a room with eLong (same group as Expedia), but the next day they called me back saying that there were actually no rooms. On asking for explanations, I was told that the hotel had "forgotten to update their room status". Unforgivable on Cruise Inn and eLong's part.
