When we traveled Japan several years ago, after a couple days we discovered a chain of business hotels called Toyoko Inn. It was perfect for us: clean, simple, comfortable, internet, convenient locations, even had a self-service laundry. It was a budget hotel, I think the cost was about $75 USD.
Any suggestions for a similar chain in China? We don't need 5 star hotels since we'll be out visiting sites most of the time. I was reading about Hanting Inns. Anyone have experience with this chain?
