    As I have known these following words 宾馆, 旅馆, 酒店 and 旅社 all have the same meaning hotel. So what is the differeces among them? And which one is the biggest? which one is the smallest?
    Please give me some other words also means “hotel” or something like that!

      宾馆 is a little old style hotel, if you go to mainland China and the hotel’s name has 宾馆, 70% it’s gonna be out-dated decoration~ Newly opened hotels are not called 宾馆 anymore.
      旅馆 is more like a hostel or an inn, sometimes also called 客栈(Kè zhàn), 旅馆 is cheaper and more homey.
      酒店 sometimes refers to a high-class restaurant, sometimes a large hotel with everything inside. The trick is if the 酒店 take a whole building, then it must be a hotel.
      旅社 is not really a hotel, people more refer it as travel agency, but more like 旅行社. Some old fashioned people may say 旅舍, but it’s different character =]
      I think there’s not really more words for hotels, and largest one is 酒店, smallest one is 旅馆, or 客栈(it’s very common if you travel in old towns in China like Lijiang 丽江)
      Hope it’s helpful for you 🙂
