Please select your location:

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.
