Question: Is the tap water safe to drink in hotels?

Answer: We do not advise that you drink the tap water, even though some hotels may claim that their tap water is purified and safe.

Usually all rooms have a water heater or thermos and boiled water is available 24/7 free of charge. Bottled water is also available in stores and at street stalls.

Question: Do the hotels have non-smoking rooms?

Answer: Yes. All star-rated hotels have non-smoking rooms or floors. Guests who check in earliest usually have priority over those checking in later for the non-smoking rooms.

Question: Is the baby's cot available?

Answer: Yes. Star-rated hotels will usually provide cots for babies under 2 years old free of charge.

Question: Can I rent a wheelchair at the hotel?

Answer: Hotels will provide wheelchairs for their registered guests free of charge but as there might not be sufficient chairs, they are assigned on a first arrival priority.

Question: Is Internet access available in hotels in China?

Answer: More and more hotels have internet access in guest rooms. If your hotel does not, the service is available at the hotel’s business center. There is an extra charge.

Question: Do the hotels have swimming pools? 
Answer: Not all hotels have swimming pools.

Question: What time can I check in and check out of the hotel?

Answer: Usually check in is after 14:00 (2 p.m.) and check out is before 12:00 noon, otherwise there might be extra charges. We can confirm these times when making your reservations.
