When it comes to hotels within China, you just have to be a
little careful.

• Hotel Travel Guide China - International Brand hotels, 4 and 5

Mostly these types of 4 and 5 star hotels will be ok, generally
they will be run by a western boss and have western heads of all
the departments.

Training, etc, of the staff, consistency of the level service
from an international brand hotel is important, so most will
have enough English speakers around to make your stay welcome
and hassle free.

The breakfast will be catered for both Chinese and Western
appetites, with the hotel occupancy rate around 50 – 50 Chinese
to Westerner.

• Hotel Travel Guide China – Chinese hotels, 4 and 5 stars
within the Major Cities

Within the major cities, most will be as the International
brands and the level of service just as good.

Within the restaurants and shops, the English should be at a
level that you would get most things without too much bother.

If the clientele is Westerner and Chinese, the breakfast will be
all the usual food that you will recognize.

• Hotel Travel Guide China – Chinese hotels, 4 and 5 star, Rural

I lot of Chinese travel, for these hotels this is their major
business, not westerners, the westerners are classed as an
extra, which has come along over the last few years.

Some have not learnt to deal with this extra business yet.

These more out of the way Chinese 4 and 5 Star hotels are a
little different; comparatively the fixtures and fitting will be
the same standard as any 4 or 5 Star hotel, however sometimes
the same care and attention in the maintenance and service to
the customer will be different to what you will be used too.

Not necessarily worst or bad, just different.

Western and Chinese expectations in all areas of the China
travel business are different, this is the why I set up
Travel-the-Real-China .com.

The level of English generally will not be as good, so just take
your time, they will find someone, or you will work, just keep
your cool.

I have stayed at some great Chinese 4 and 5 star hotels, and
been very happy, so do not be put off.

All I have visited have been clean tidy and for an overall
statement: a pleasant stay was had by all.

The breakfast will be a Chinese breakfast and if it is a regular
stop for Western travelers, some western food will be served.

If it is an out of the way place, you may not get the type of
breakfast you expect, the Chinese eat different things for
breakfast, so to get a simple cup of tea or coffee and some
toast just will not happen.

There will be hot water, if you have to have your tea or coffee,
bring your own.

The breakfast will have lots of food, just not, what you will be

• Hotel Travel Guide China – Chinese hotels, 3 star

These 3 star Chinese hotels usually gets very high traffic and
occupancy… mostly Chinese, and now the westerners, especially
with the major cities

For these hotels, maintenance is not high on there lists, so you
may find a few things that will not work or have fallen of the

If it is dangerous, most of the time, something will be done,
otherwise no one will care.

Within the major cities most will be clean and tidy and offer
some sort of western food for breakfast. Out in the remoter
areas… not really.

The breakfast will have lots of food, just not, what you will be

Take some tea and coffee if you really need this there will
always be hot water.

The level of English within the major cities will be, just
enough for you to check in, and out in the remoter areas,
checking in can take come time.

There is a high number of these hotels and it can be a great way
to see the country, in Tibet the 3 star hotels are a little
pricy, however within China most are good value and will be
clean with showers in all the rooms.

You just need to be a where; its good value, clean and some
small things maybe a little frustrating with it, however that’s

Go with the flow, its part of the adventure of China.

• Hotel Travel Guide China – Shanghai hotels - Special rates and

I know of a few small and very good value inner city hotels
within Shanghai.

These are Chinese hotels and will not be on anyone’s list to
book, as they are new and classed as Chinese business hotels.
