FAQ - China hotels

Question: What can I expect from the hotels in China?

According to the Chinese rating system, 1- 5 star hotels are approved to receive foreign guests. In the bigger, more developed places like Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Kunming, Lijiang, Chongqing, Wuhan, you can stay in 3 star or 4 star hotels.

In smaller towns like Yangshuo, Dali and Zhongdian, there are many good small hotels. Almost all the rooms have twin beds (few double beds are available in the hotels) and have a private bath (with Western style flush toilet and bath and shower), heating and air conditioning, as well as a telephone capable of international direct dialing and a television (although usually only Chinese channels are available, but some international channels are available in the hotels over 3 star).

Sinoway Travel always recommends a good centrally located hotel for you. It is very easy for you to walk around to explore the city, and particularly the local street markets, as well as many wonderful local restaurants.

Question: What is your hotel room rate included?

All of our hotel room rates are calculated per room and per night, NOT per person (unless otherwise specified). For hotel booking only, there is no charge for children at the age of 12 or below, if they share a room with their parents and do not need an extra bed.


Some of the room rates are not inclusive of breakfast, they are shown as USD *** room only.

Most of our room rates are inclusive of two persons' breakfast.  If a child sharing one room with their parents, and do not need an extra bed, the hotel might charge for the child's breakfast cost, it is from USD 5 to USD 15, differs from hotel to hotel.


Question: What is single supplement?

The hotel is based on double occupancy. If the visitor travels alone or the number of the travelers is odd (such as 3,5, 7...), the person who stays in one single room has to pay the single supplement.
