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.

Our school soccer team went to Shekou for a soccer tournament and we lived at the cruise inn, when we got there we saw a whole square in front of the hotel full of shops and restaurants and we were all excited, very good location at the popular "sea world". It took us a really long time to check in... More

Unique, friendly staff, clean but really hard mattresses.... A bit noisy if you get one of those rooms facing the sea world restaurants. Price wise, it's quite good comparing to its concept and operation. All in all its a nice experience and I would definitely do it again.
