The Shanghai Ocean Hotel, which is a 4-star property, is well located near the Huangpu River. I stayed there three nights with my tour group, China Focus.
I really enjoyed my large room on the 12th floor. It was very bright and very clean. It had a wonderful view of Shanghai as well.
My room had a king-size bed with a white, comfortable duvet. Two night tables, one with a telephone, were situated on each side of the bed. A flat-screen TV with cable faced the bed so I could watch the news or a movie in bed using the remote control.
A large, elegant writing desk with a matching chair was provided. Atop the desk was a laptop computer with free broadband (30 minutes every 24 hours. I sure wished that the hotel provided free WiFi, but that’s a rarity at most Shanghai hotels.) Many electric outlets were provided above the desk on the left side.
The room also had a comfy easy chair and a matching love seat. The closet was equipped with a safe, two bathrobes, two pairs of slippers, and plenty of drawers and good-quality hangars.
The bathroom, which was spotless, included a bathtub and shower, commode, sink, large mirror, hair dryer, and plenty of soap, shampoos, hair conditioners, and body lotions.
The buffet breakfast was truly a treat. Set in a large, elegant dining room, there was a great variety of both Western and Chinese dishes. It was a feast fit for a king or queen.
I really enjoyed myself at this very nice hotel in Shanghai.
