Hainan issues highest price limit for hotel room rate during upcoming CNY
Tourists visiting Hainan during the upcoming Spring Festival holidays will encounter stable hotel room prices, thanks to measures issued by the provincial authorities.
Under the rules, the highest-price for a standard room is set at 5,000 yuan per night. For room rates over 5,000 yuan per night, the hotel has to first gain approval from local authorities.
Hoteliers are required to lower room rates by more than 10%from the average rates last year.
The provincial price bureau has also set up price intervention rules to curb the surging prices of hotel buffets. During the Spring Festival holidays, separate price for buffet and breakfast in a hotel is not allowed to exceed 300 yuan per person, while lunch and dinner will not be allowed to exceed 400 yuan per person (service charged included).
Besides these measures, scenic spots and seafood restaurant operators will also be scrutinized during the holiday season to ensure stable prices
