Zhōngwén Dìzhǐ - Jiēhào ▸ Address in Chinese - Building/Community Number On The Street

In Chinese, the bigger place goes before the smaller place. Therefore when we want to say the address of a building or a community, we usually say its number on the street. We follow this structure:

STREET NAME NUMBER ON THE STREET BUILDING/

[can be omitted]
jiē
……街
street
hào

road

Zhōngwén Dìzhǐ - Fánghào ▸ Address in Chinese - Apartment/Room/Suite Number

In China, the majority of people live in high-rise apartment buildings instead of single-family houses. And For business address also. The majority of offices are also located in high-rise office buildings.

Therefore, when we want to say a detailed address in Chinese with the apartment, room, or suite number, we follow this structure:

Please be careful with these following usage restrictions:

  1. both 层 and 楼 can be used after "……栋"
  2. only 层 can be used after "……号楼" to avoid repetition of using 楼 twice

Zhōngwén Dìzhǐ - Jiēhào + Fánghào ▸ Address in Chinese - Building/Community Number On The Street + Apartment/Room/Suite Number

We can also add the street number and room number together. Just remember that in Chinese, the bigger place always goes before the smaller place. So for a full address we say it like this:

STREET NAME BUILDING/COMMUNITY # ON STREET BUILDING/
COMMUNITY NAME
[can be omitted]
BUILDING # FLOOR # APARTMENT/
ROOM/SUITE #
jiē /
……街 / ……路
street / road

floor
hào / shì
……号 ……室
number room
hào lóu
……号楼
number (of) building
céng
……层 / …… 楼
