Hotels in China are rated according to established international star-rating standards. By the end of 1997, there were 2,724 star-rated hotels in the country, including 57 five-star hotels, 157 four-star hotels, 895 three-star hotels, 1,339 two-star hotels and 276 one-star hotels. In other words, more than half of China's hotels open to foreigners have been star-rated.

These tourist hotels, star-rated ones in particular, bear the brunt of the flow of foreign visitors to China, providing them with food, lodging and many other services according to international standards.


A hotel rated with three or more stars has the following:

  • The rooms are cozily appointed and furnished, and the toilets are equipped with 110/220-volt electricity sockets and provide hot water 24 fours a day.
  • Each guest room is equipped with an air-conditioner or central air-conditioning that is good enough to keep room temperature at a comfortable level.
  • A telephone is installed in each room to allow the guest to make domestic or international long-distance calls through the operator.
  • There are both a color TV set and a stereo system in each room.
  • There are effective soundproof facilities, as well as curtains that can block the sunlight.
  • Stationery appropriate to the rating of the hotel is available in every guest room.
