Interesting hotel inside the big boat in Shekuo seaworld. Fantastic location - literally surrounded by bars and restaurants. Surprised to find the nice sized bed in the decently sized room was a waterbed, only discovered this when I sat on it! First time on one and found it very comfortable. Had a room on the starboard side of the vessel... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and had a great time. The staff are friendly, the rooms a good size and well equipped with goodies, and a turndown service. Breakfast was cheap and provided a nice selection of multi cultural food. Make sure you see the fountain display - when we were there it was on at 7pm, 7.30 and... More

I stay here regularly during my business trips to Shenzhen, China. The rooms are always extremely tidy and pretty large. I usually stay on the 3rd or 5th floor and the rooms overlook the busy square outside. The restaurant is mainly Hunan local cuisine and there is a nightclub, Extasy on the side of the hotel. This offers live music... More

It's not a luxury hotel, but I still like the whole setup. The rooms and floors are far from straight, it's a ship after all. Not too big rooms, but with a nice atmosphere. I like the hallways and the design. No need for a restaurant here, outside you have 100 restaurants in walking distance. The bar inside the Ship... More

Best possible location in Shekou Sea World, with plenty of restaurants and bars around. Nice experience since the rooms are actually in a cruise ship dry docked there. Good and clean room with comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, definitely recommended.

The "Hotel" or actually the Cruise ship is located at Sea World in Shekou (Shenzhen). I definitely encourage anyone for a night staying. It's surrounded by bars, restaurants, pubs, shops, etc... very very lively place. One weak point, which honestly it's not a big issue is that you have to carry your luggages from the street approx. 300 meters away.... More

I stayed here with my sister. Cute room, very clean. I love the style. Friendly staff and great environment. Very good western restaurants around. Uncomfortable if you have big luggage, since you have to walk around to take transportation.
