elong.com and elong.net don't use the same prices ???

I've compared different hotels on elong.com (chinese) and elong.net (english) around Shanghai Jingan Temple (静安寺) and noticed a difference of price. Is it normal ? I thought the double standard didn't exist anymore.

汉庭快捷酒店 (上海静安寺店) ¥189起
Hanting Hotels ¥208起

莫泰168 (上海静安寺店)原(上海武宁南路店) ¥198起
Motel 168 Jing An Temple Inn -Shanghai ¥248起

汉庭快捷酒店 (上海武宁南路店) ¥218起
Hanting Express South Wuning Road - Shanghai ¥246起

Btw, that's maybe why most of the cheap hotels are not available on the english version.

Are you surprised that a company will try to fleece wealthy foreigners? :)
