We offer a range of accommodation throughout China, from simple but characterful guesthouses to luxurious hotels. In some places you'll find functional Western chains, which aren't especially inspiring but are comfortable and well located. However, Beijing in particular has some highly attractive traditional-style properties built around historic courtyards, which have changed little in centuries. Shanghai also has a number of boutique hotels, as befits such a globalised city.
A number of luxury options have also opened up, which tend to be located away from city centres to offer a more relaxing stay. In Yunnan and Guizhou provinces you'll find small, characterful guesthouses which reflect the local architecture and decorative style of the area. Meanwhile, along the Silk Route in western China international chains dominate, offering comfortable - if simple - en suite rooms.
When you choose your accommodation in China, we can suggest a variety of places to stay that range from luxury properties to family-run guesthouses and hotels in restored historic buildings. They all come recommended by our specialists from their own experience of staying there. Using the filters below you can refine the accommodation options to the places you’re planning to visit.
