Vocabulary of Hotel

Major Chinese and Taiwanese hotels almost have English-speaking staffs to assist travelers from Western countries. Hotels in out-of-the-way tourist destinations, even so, might not have anybody available who speaks English, so this listing of frequent hotel vocabulary can help you.
Make sure you practice these words and phrases effectively prior to your departure date. The hardest part about Mandarin vocabulary will be the tones, which might give a word diverse meaning. The right use of tones will make your Mandarin easy to understand.
