Stayed here 2 nights as part of a tour package. Electric golf carts are used to transfer tourists from outside city wall to inner hotels. This is a beautiful quaint Inn located within the old city on a side street. Lovely ambiance! Lobby and courtyards were decorated with festive lights and red lanterns for May 1 holiday. Room was small... More

The good: beautiful old fashioned style guesthouse/hotel organised in ancient courtyards; located just off the Main Street where all the tourist hordes are; the owner is a passionate of The Party (the communist one), with pictures of all the administrations that ruled the country since its founding in 1949; The bad: rooms are small; terribly noisy (!) you can practically...

We are about to check out now after 3 nights stay in Pingyao. The hotel is 5 minutes away from the main street, which is great as we have heard the karaoke music and loud signs of the main streets that keep people awake at night when you stay on the main street. Our guide explained this is a courtyard... More

This guesthouse is inside the walled city of Pingyao and is of traditional style within a compound of separate small courtyards where the rooms have remodelled. Although the rooms are quite small, they are adequate for our needs and have modern facilities. The bed is styled on the traditional Chinese "kang" and westerners may find them a "tad" hard. Wifi...

The hotel is beautiful with traditional courtyards and rooms. Rooms were small and it was hard to move around once the baggage was opened. Bathroom was small too. Although they had heating, it wasn't suffiencient for the wintery nights. However, on our last night they put an extra heater for us, so that was a plus. Breakfast was chinese style.... More

--- Rooms --- The rooms are small and the bathroom is only okay, with the shower flooding the room a bit. Electric heating / aircon about which we had the impression that it didn't really heat the room but just generate noise. However, everything was clean and consistent with the charming courtyard atmosphere of the hotel. There is in-room WiFi,... More

This hotel has a lovely Chinese atmosphere and I really enjoyed my stay here. It is right in the middle of the town and so central for wandering the picturesque streets of Pingyao. Our room was in a courtyard where Chinese music played and had lanterns hanging up. It was such a refreshing change from the big skyscraper type hotels... More

This is a traditional courtyard hotel with charm and character. It's stone court yards and walls create a distinct atmosphere. Unfortunately the rooms were in need of an upgrade and refresh. Their maintenance programme also needs to improve. We had to move rooms as in the first one the heat pump didn't work properly. The staff were friendly and helpful.... More
