As with all our hotel stays during our China Tour, the Ocean Hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff members were all very polite and helpful regardless of any language problems. Breakfast buffet was delicious catering for all tastes. We were able to access free wifi in foyer and lounge areas. This was a very busy hotel, but we were... More

Hotel is good but internet really sucks. They have only one LAN connection and that is only nearer to working desk. No free WiFi makes it even harder to access internet casually especially in your smart phone. subway is nearer. little far from the central area to go by walking.

Average place, walk to metro station takes about 10 minutes. The room and facilities were pretty good. But the counter service should be improved. 地點尚稱方便,距離地鐵站步行約10分鐘。房間以及相關設施都很不錯,但是接待人原服務態度有待加強。

Stayed for 2nights as part of tour. No problems clean and comfortable. Good breakfast considering catering for many nationalities. Staff very efficient. Fairly centrally located, short taxi ride to central area.

I arrived after midnight and the key was ready. The deposit taking was normal, while some reviewers consider it not so. The swimming pool was good size but the temperature was 22 deg, while the posted one was said to be 26. The breakfast was adequate and the rooms of good size. I was in the executive floor so it...

By any standards, this hotel is right up there in the 5 star category. The junior suite rooms were up to date; the beds were extremely comfortable. The junior suite we had was spacious, with every amenity provided: TV with English CCTV, couches and table for spreading out and planning; nice marble bath with a bathtub and shower. Air conditioning... More

Location was excellent - walking distance to Bund, boat tour, subway, fantastic local eateries. Staff were always helpful and polite. Breakfast outstanding. Lobby had seating to wait for others. The room was spacious and very contemporary. Totally enjoyed the stay.

My room was stunning. The service was fine. The breakfast buffet was average. It proved difficult to get a cup of weak dirty-water-colored coffee. It is too bad that tall buildings have been built in front of this hotel. Otherwise it would have a perfect view of the riverfront nightime lights.

Hotel was just fine and the on-line booked price was very good. New metro line 12 about 200 yds from hotel, 3 yuan to ride to city centre. No problem for us to get a taxi right away to the Maglev. Right next to the Jewish quarter.

This hotel was okay, but we were supposed to be at the Holiday Inn right in the centre of the action. Rooms were pretty small, clean and comfortable beds. Problem was in our free time there wasn't too much to do.around the hotel - it is in the old Jewish ghetto quarter and has some interest - the small park... More
