Travellers staying in some of China’s top hotels may question their cleanliness after staff were accused of using the same cloths to wipe toilets and drinking glasses.
Video clips appear to show employees at two high-end establishments using one cloth while cleaning bathrooms for guests.
Undercover reporters from a TV station visited the hotels in Hangzhou, where rooms reportedly cost more than €100 a night.
It was claimed staff used the same towel to clean different rooms, which left guests at risk of using a drinking glass that has been rubbed 'clean' by a towel used to clean other toilets.
However professionals from the hotel industry in China insist cleaning staff use different coloured clothes for different areas of the room.
