does it work?
Due to the lack of full computerization of China's hotel reservation system, it is very
difficult to book and confirm a China hotel from outside of China unless the hotel is
linked with an international reservation agency. Via our agency and our network, we are
proud that we can now book and confirm with more than 160 China and Hong Kong hotels
(1-star to 5-star) before you leave your home!

The electronic confirmation will have a due date by which time you must confirm acceptance
of your reservation by sending us e-mail. If we do not receive these details by the due
date, which is shortly before your arrival date, we will cancel your room automatically.
do you check-in to the hotel?
When we confirm your China hotel reservations, we will supply you the following:
guest's full name
arrival and departure date
whether breakfast (Chinese or western) is included
confirmation number (Some hotel dont have the confirmation number)
When you arrive to the hotel at the agreed arrival date, you just need to present your
passport and mention that you've made the reservation. The hotel receptionist,
anticipating your arrival, will warmly provide you with the key to your room.
to make payment
The hotel room rate can be settled directly to the hotel upon you check-in. You can pay by
credit card or cash. You can also pay the room rate to us by cash and somebody of our
agency will go to your hotel to receive your payment after you check-in the hotel. Occasionally, during
the Canton Fair period, we will ask you to deposit one night
room rate or total room rates for secure your reservation.
When you check out, you just pay the rest of room rates.
What is the Hotel Policy for Children?
Most hotels adopt the policy of allowing children to stay in the room with parents either
with or without an extra bed. The normal hotel policy is not to charge for children
if they are under twelve years of age. Some hotels will limit occupants of a room to
two adults and one child only. Only a few hotels will have an existing bedding for
two adults and two children in a room so an extra bed is usually required. Some
hotels will, unfortunately, charge for this extra bed.
