Comfortable but not CleanPosted May 5, 2015
Pros: Excellent location, large room, comfortable.
Cons: Cleanliness, add some English TV stations (such as HBO or CCTV News).
Location: Italian Village just 5 min walk, Binjiang Road about 10 min walk. Many places to eat/drink coffee in Italian Village. Subway 20 min away.
I stayed at Tianjin Ocean Hotel for three days. The room was comfortable but not very clean. For example, there was a nice red couch in front of the television, but it had strange stains all over the cushions. The desk chair was state of the art, but had greasy stains on the seat. Sometimes there was a musty smell when the air conditioner was on, and the shower smelled moldy. Bed was a queen but advertised as a king. Despite all of this, I was comfortable. The bed seemed clean and I slept well each night. The TV offered no English stations, but I was able to watch some funny Chinese shows, some with English subtitles. The view from the room was nice, although blocked by ugly window frames. And the room was large, so I felt like the couch and sleeping areas were distinctive from each other. One very unfortunate thing happened: due to a mix up, I needed to book my room another night. It was still time before check out, so I had put the "Do Not Disturb" sign up as I went to get coffee. When I came back, the maid had entered the room and cleaned up! I was happy she cleaned, but not happy that she went in despite my wishes. The hotel's location was very convenient, just steps away from the Italian Village and only 10 minutes walk from the start of Binjiang Road, the famous shopping street. About 20 minutes from Tianjin Train station, but it was somewhat easy to find because you can see the building's name from a distance. Overall, I might stay here again despite its flaws.

We had a difficult time finding the location due to an error in Google Maps, the hotel has a good location due to its proximity to Italian town/the river/etc. Tianjin is a walkable city, so any spot is going to be somewhat convenient. No complaints!

Staffs are very polite and helpful, they took extra care about your left braggage. However in this website I have to prepay the full price, it is different to the tradition in China which is pay at checkout. If you want to pay at checkout you are better to find Chinese local booking websites.

トイレットペーパーは無い。 ドライヤーもない。 バスタブは栓がしにくい。 あまり良い印象は受けませんでした。

Ocean Hotel Tianjin--not fancy but comfortablePosted Nov 11, 2011 on Hotels
The Ocean has a few shortcomings. The laundry service was has been inoperative for some time as they presumably renovaye it, and the building shows some signs of age, but the rooms are clean, room service is good and available 24-hours, and the staff includes a couple of English speaking clerks who are helpful. The hotel is on the river and many rooms have a river view. It is within walking distance of "The Old Italian Village" which is picturesque, authentic (i.e., the buildings date to the time when this was an Italian Concession), and atmospheric. It is full of touring people which can be distracting, but the restaurants are a good switch if you want some European food, and the Bavarian Beer Hall serves German beer, as do most of the restaurants. I think given the reasonable prices, this is a good hotel for the traveller who is looking for a reasonaby priced lodging.

The ocean hotel tianjin is in the best location of tianjin. It is within walking distance to main attractions and train station. The hotal staffs tried their best to maintain the best service and the price was in reasonable range. I would recommend to choose this hotel.
