Accommodation Tips in China for Senior Travelers

What kind of hotel is best for senior travelers? A comfortable hotel is the key. How to pick a suitable hotel in China? As seniors may have more requirements for an ideal hotel, you’d better choose a good location and check if the facilities of the hotel are senior-friendly. For more details, please read this accommodation tips in China for senior travelers.


1.Center area is more suitable for senior traveler.

Location for your hotel is really important, especially for senior travelers. As seniors would love to have a relaxing tour in China, areas around the city center is highly recommended. It will be more convenient for eating and shopping, if your hotel is closed to commercial streets and shopping malls. You will enjoy a great time walking around at night. What’s more, it’s more easy for you to take bus and metro if you prefer public transportation. That is to say, you can even walk to famous attractions nearby, which will be amazing for senior travelers.

2.Large international hotels will be better.

Price will be definitely be an very influential factor when you start to pick your hotel, since the price varies from different levels of hotel you want to stay. The star rating system of hotels in China is totally not the same as what in western countries, thus, we usually suggest our senior travelers choose 4-star or 5-star hotels, more comfortable but with a lower price than in the west.


3.Comfortable bed is really important.

Most senior travelers prefer a softer bed, and it’s true that a comfortable bed is really important, you can have a better rest after your itinerary for the day. If you are really concerned about the bed, maybe you can consider international style hotel and boutique style hotel, for a more pleasant experience. For the room, just pick from standard room or suite room according to your demand and also your budget.

Hotels with senior-friendly facilities and thoughtful service will be excellent for you. It’s better to check all the facilities they provide before booking, especially if you have wheelchairs. If you’re willing to have meal inside the hotel, you’d better check whether they have restraurant. There are fitness centre and swimming pool in most 4-star and 5-star hotels, just make sure you find what is best for you.
