We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour of China, so the position was OK for us as we went sightseeing by bus. The car park is small, and we did have problems sometimes with backing out the bus. There was no coffee with the kettle in the room, only tea, but we bought some Nescafe sachets and... More

I will start by saying....the Ocean Hotel is impressive in it's public spaces. Very modern and nicely decorated. The guest rooms were fine with nice bathrooms and English TV stations available. The buffet was lavish and nicely presented, however, a number of folks in our tour group became unwell shortly after our first meal in the hotel. Not saying for... More

The hotel is beautifully modern on the outside, although far from any decent restaurants or sights. But the thermostat in our room didn't work. We complained repeatedly. In three days, five different people came to look at it, but none of them fixed it. Finally, someone opened a small window. (We'd have done that earlier, except they were locked.) Three... More

We stayed here in October 2014 while on a tour. The room we had was fantastic. Wonderful view of the city. Close enough to the Bund for a short cab ride if you wanted to shop. Lots of eating place along the road (we don't read or speak Chinese so we didn't eat in them). There is a little market... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It was our first Chinese hotel and the room was clean, comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom with plenty of hot water. Towels were changed daily even though not requested which was a nice touch. Breakfast was good, hot and plenty to choose from.

On first impressions this hotel looks the part. It has just been refurbished and looks very classy. However the attitude of the staff from the managers down was terrible. We found them unhelpful, rude and unfriendly. The language barrier cannot be blamed for this as most spoke English and its easy to smile and be happy in any culture. The... More

The rooms are spacious and clean. Our room was on a higher floor. The bathroom was huge with a separate tub and shower. The buffet breakfast had a vast array of choices with everything being delicious. The Chinese Restaurant on the second floor was also very good. It is very close to a neighbourhood park and The Jewish Museum.
