We were kindly upgraded to a bigger room on arrival which was a nice gesture given the standard rooms do not come with heating. However the bed was very hard and the pillows were uncomfortable. Other than that the staff were friendly and the place was nice.

We, a friend and I, stayed there for two nights and we loved every bit about it. It was already love at first sight, the historical entrance, the beautiful, well looked after courtyard, the friendliness of the employees... The room was big, super clean and beautiful. Equipped with the typical large Kang-bedding, which was very comfortable, toiletries, hair dryer, tea... More

We stayed two nights in this "hotel" which we cannot call a hotel because everything is so different from European standards. Our room was great with a huge bed. The courtyard is absolutely lovely with birds, trees and Chinese people talking very early in the morning but we didn't mind because we didn't want to be with tourists all the... More

My husband and I stayed here with our adult daughter in April 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bed is an amazing experience. We all slept in it, and could have fitted 1-2 more. Through the day it doubles as your sitting area. There is a pleasant courtyard for relaxing in and downing a beer or too on a hot... More

Fining the hostel was relatively easy. Previous reviews are correct, it's not on the main road but down an alley on the right after entering the north gate. Whilst there isn't a sign down the alleyway in English, we used the phone number on the sign which matched the number on the booking confirmation. Getting to pingyao was also easy... More

Though it address is listed as the Main Street, it is in fact tucked about 100 m down a side lane. There is a sign on the west side of the Main Street directing you to the lane, but it's easy to miss. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. The property is a lovely courtyard with lots of greenery and... More

I stayed for three nights and enjoyed it a lot. It is quiet for the most part, slightly hard but comfortable (big) bed, lovely little courtyard and very friendly staff. We arrived in the late afternoon at Taiyuan railroad station and were having trouble getting a taxi with meter (all wanted to take us for 100 RMB without meter). I... More

This hotel is Chinese all the way. The rooms are great with everything necessary. The kang bed very comfortable. We almost changed to a traditional bed but were so glad we tried the kang. The breakfast is strictly Chinese...but boiled eggs were a plus. The staff is very helpful and you can walk to all the walls, restaurants, and museums... More

Small hotel in traditional building. Location is OK as old Pingyao is a very small city. Rooms are not big as bed takes most of space we had problem with geting around the suitcases. Tiny bathroom with open shower is also not covinient as everything is wet after one person. Main problem for us was a temperature. It was cold... More

We have loved staying at Cheng Jai courtyard hotel. It has a lovely atmosphere in a traditional setting. It is true, it is not a chain hotel, nor is it a western hotel. It's charm is that it fits its setting, Pingyao old city, perfectly. We loved our traditional room with the bed taking 2/3 of the room with a... More
