Like many hotels in the larger cities in China, the Ocean, is tucked into quite a small space! But it is surprising how well it has turned out. A quite large reception area with a little shop and some tables where you can meet people or get a drink, or both!
Top class rooms, quite compact when compared to some, but so well set up and maintained that it is hardly noticeable. Restaurant on the top floor, great view (Except for the smog as usual) food is good and plentiful.

Room Tip: All the times I have stayed here the rooms have been fine, not had a bad one.

Iknow that many hotels tend to be pricy during the canton fair, it's expected and understood, however you are not ecxpected to charge way beyond resonable, which to be frank was my feeling during my stay.
hotel is located between many other hotel in its neighborhood that vary in level and in price but they all have one thing in common- they are all fully booked during the fair time.
many resturants and bars at walking distance.
so I booked to this one and found out that even though the breakfast area is located on the roof which i liked very much, the room itself was tiny and was barly enough to fit me and my luggage.
the rooms are clean and well maintained however some don't have windowes in them which adds to the clastrophobic feeling i had anyway.
service at the counter was basic, not great.
all in all if no other choice take this one and be aware to what you are getting.

Room Tip: dont take the standard room as it has no window in it. take minimum the superiour.

Everything about this hotel is 'easy'.

The location is right in the business district (less than 10 mins walk to the world trade centre). There are always taxis outside, and the taxis can always find the hotel with no problems.

The staff are helpful, speak English, and remember your needs.

The rooms are modern, bedding is fresh, seems new, and clean every day.
Shower is powerful, bathroom is filled with toiletries daily. Were given clean dressing gowns and slippers every day.

When I was there the gym was closed for re - furbishment but the outdoor pool was clean and quiet and made for a relaxing swim after a busy day.
Internet in the room was usually fast and connected to your laptop with a wire (provided in the room).

The room service food is OK but there are quite a lot of good restaurants in the area so you don't need to use it. As well as Starbucks and The Friendship Store (Department store) so you can buy everything you need. If you book on expedia then the breakfast is not included so it is better to book direct through the hotel website (for the same price).

Note that the 'economy' rooms have no windows so ask for a 'superior' or 'business' room.

I would always stay here when in Guangzhou as I have never had any problems with them.

Room Tip: Book a business or superior room. The economy room has no windows.

I stayed in ocean Hotel GZ during 13 China Building Decoration Fair in July 2011. Overall rating is also good, quiet, managing an orderly, safe maintenance of very bad time. The check was smooth, we booked throught Ctrip and they hold rooms for us till 10 PM, as we called them to do so.
Important: First ; Room size is small. Second, Bathrooms was Hygienic and good linen quality, Rooms service was very good. The Sauna/ Spa in the hotel was excellent.
Overall a very satisfying stay.

Not a bad hotel but feels like a nightclub.....good service and the rooms are modern if not a bit like sets from a music video..good location but just something unnerving about the marine theme.

It is a decent 4* hotel. Room sizes are small. We travelled during the canton fair in guangzhou. The room rates were quite high because of the canton fair. The property is a decent one, but the price we paid is not worth it, my be because of the fair. there is no vegetarian food in the hotel, but there is an indian panjabi restaurant nearby.
