Where to stay in Jinan

True to form as a transport hub, Jinan offers a wide range and variety of accommodations. Luxurious hotels tend to group in the chic southeastern part of the city, with surprisingly affordable options in this trendy area of town. Many major international chains are represented in the city, as well as plenty of places to choose from in the low-budget category. A number of hotels and guesthouses cluster near the train station, offering great proximity to onward transport connections, but not to the major tourist sites.
