Sanya issues rate cap for 2014 CNY hotel room rates
Strict measures have been announced to ensure the stability of the price of hotel rooms and buffets when visitors swarm to Sanya during the upcoming Spring Festival holiday.
Under the rules, the highest daily cost for a standard room, including the extra service fees, should be less than 5,000 yuan. If prices exceed the cap, the hotel needs to get approval from local authorities.
The local price bureau has also set up price intervention rules to curb the surging prices of hotel buffets. During the weeklong Spring Festival holiday in hotels, the price for buffet and breakfast is not allowed to exceed 350 yuan per person, while lunch and dinner will not be allowed to exceed 500 yuan per person (service charges included).
