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

I'll get straight to the point. I don't recommend the Ocean Hotel in Shanghai and I would never stay here again. Here are the reasons why: 1. No in room wifi. 2. Lobby wifi requires that you enter a code every single time you disconnect and want to reconnect again. 3. Yoghurt at breakfast buffet was not on ice, and... More

This was our last hotel, and our favorite! The rooms are huge! Very clean and modern. The glass wall and door on the bathroom might be a problem for some people( although I read after our stay there is a curtain, I did not see one in our room). The breakfast had a wide variety of foods and had the... More

Well staffed hotel with good service! Room no 718 half of the view blocked by a wall...but surprise! This is the first hotel I have stayed in with an inside window to the bathroom. You can watch your room mate having a bath or using the toilet (found out later that there is a curtain inside bathroom so one can... More
