Here you'll learn Mandarin Chinese words required to check into your hotel, including confirming how many rooms you have booked and how long you will stay. You'll learn Chinese key sentences for talking to the hotel receptionist as you're checking in. You'll also learn Mandarin ways to respond to common questions asked when checking in to a hotel in China.
Having arrived by cab at the hotel you booked, you can now get checked in by the hotel staff. Chinese hotel staff, particularly those working at reception, typically have a solid foundation in the English language. You can benefit from this by requesting them help you book tours or cabs during your stay. They will generally be happy to assist with writing down directions for you. Hotel staff will respond well to guests who make an effort to speak some Chinese!
Booking online at least a few days in advance is generally the best way to get the best rate for hotel rooms in China. Booking through a third party website can often be cheaper than booking with the hotel directly. If you are travelling as part of a large group to China, be sure to contact the hotel directly at least a few weeks in advance. You should be able to haggle a good rate if you ask for the hotel sales manager.
