Stayed there for business, room is clean and with this room rate, it's fair deal. Breakfast is average, do have western food, but Chinese taste. Location is not convenient if you wanna go for sightseeing. Nevertheless taxi fare is low in Shanghai. Entered the breakfast room, but surprised being told my room rate does not cover breakfast, paid RMB 120... More

We stayed here as part of a China tour. Our room, and bathroom was nice. Both the room and bathroom were off a good size and very clean. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The public areas are modern and decorated to a good standard. The location was also good as it was only a 10-15 minute walk to the bund.

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
