We booked a 20 bed dorm for 15 rm so we didn't expect much. Once we booked, we got an immediate email from Tommy asking what train we were arriving on and he would pick us up. We emailed back the info and he picked us up. We did have the directions for walking just in case he didn't show... More

We had a hard time locating the property and they had no record of our booking at all. The building is very old so there was very steep steps to get to the room and we had some issues with cockroaches etc at night. The air con when working was good and the bed was comfortable and large. The bathroom... More

The building itself is beautiful with a gorgeous courtyard and was in a great location. There are two buildings next to each other that are both called Zhengjia. According to our reservation we stayed at Zhengjia garden hotel. The staff spoke very limited English, some better than others. For the most part this wasn't a problem as you get a... More

We had a short stay in Ping Yao and were lucky enough to stay at Zheng Jia Hotel otherwise known as Zhengjia International Youth Hostel. Our room was self contained with a western toilet good shower and fresh clean towels. The main feature is the old fashioned Chinese bed, which is twice the width of a normal bed and very... More

This residence is actually split in two - the hotel and the hostel. I stayed in the hostel, which is a few doors to the right of the hotel. The building itself is great - a traditional old-style courtyard. The rooms are OK, the fittings are a little dirty but the beds are clean and the lockers are nice and... More

Zhengjia hostel/hotel actually has two (at least) properties just beside each other. The first one, coming from west through the tower, is more hotel-like while the latter seemed to have a more hostel-like vibe to it. We stayed two nights in a double room in the former. They seem to share staff and kitchen at least. Part of the staff... More

Can't complain about this place. It's a traditional Chinese courtyard, great decor and very peaceful when escaping from the masses outside. Room was large, and they very kindly upgraded us to the deluxe room, which is really nice. Food is decent and cheap, my only grip was that they didn't put ice in my Long Island ice tea. Definitely would... More

The only pros of the hostel is the location. It's next to the Yamen (ancient police station and court). They charged us RMB 10 for key deposit, which is the lowest I've seen in China. (Usually RMB 50 to 100). However, on the night before we would be leaving pingyao on a 7AM train, we asked for refund of our... More

When the girl told us the room's ready and we finally find the room by ourselves, the cleaner's still making beds for us. And... More

Stayed at the Zhengjia Garden Hotel which is the left of 2 buildings making up this hotel/hostel. The manager Mr Zhao, who speaks English, was very friendly and helpful and constantly checked to make sure we were having a pleasant stay. We were upgraded to a suite and offered free chinese breakfasts. On our last morning, thinking we had grown... More
