4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Have just returned from a Mercury China Discovery Tour. The hotel was very nice and the room lovely. We were there for three nights, couldn't really fault it. The bathroom was in a glass cube in the bedroom so probably not so good if you are shy with your ablutions!!

The hotel is in a residential area,so relatively quiet,about 5 minutes drive from the Bund and the nightlife of the central city. Surrounding the hotel there are no,limited western bars,restaurants or shopping facilities. Nevertheless the hotel has been recently renovated to a decent 4 star standard. It has 357 rooms. As part of a tour group we stayed in a... More

The room is very convenient and spacious. Enough space for my little one to run around and play. However location is not ideal as there are no western restaurant nearby. I would have stayed here if there were more restaurants around.

We've just returned from Mercury Holidays, China Discovery tour 10 days. What an amazing experience. I'd like to thank all the local guides and coach rivers for an excellent journey. I enjoyed thoroughly the trip,with highlights at all locations. The pace and temperatures where high and very busy as it was China national holidays, but the guides bypassed queues keeping... More

After several weeks in China I stayed at the Ocean Hotel and received the best sleep in weeks. Layout of rooms are very working traveller friendly and the bed the comfiest that I slept in whilst in China. Breakfast was superb. Highly recommend.

The rooms were huge. Staff was nice to accommodate our request for three rooms in same wing. Breakfast buffet was good. The only drawback is that it is not centrally located, there was no shopping district or dining for tourists. We had to cab everywhere which is ok as cabs are inexpensive.

There are quite a few local restaurants around this hotel, which makes it convenient for business people to eat after work and go back to hotel. There is also a nice cafe opposite the hotel which is pretty decent. It is also near the Bund, which is about 10-15 mins drive away. I don't really know the exact location of... More

The hotel were booked by our business partner as they held their dinner there. Meetings were conducted in their ballroom. We basically spent about 4 days in the hotel and glad to report that during the 4 days, room was properly kept and we were pretty much left to our own devices. We barely noticed the chambermaid etc, they either... More

A very good position, walking distance of the Bund, clean and spacious room, new furniture, a large bathroom, free Wi-fi. The breakfast with european and chinese food. And if you go near the hotel you can see nice old houses, another face of Shanghai.

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
