Stayed for 2 nights here and by far it is the best place we stayed at in our China trip. It is a family that operates the hotel and they are incredibly accommodating and made our experience in Pingyao very memorable. The hostel is kind of hard to find: go through the northern gate (from the train station exit and... More

After arriving at the train station, we decided to walk to the hotel as it was located only about 500 yards and was located NEAR the entrance to the old city. We could not find the hotel... ended up taking a yak. Problem was the hotel is located INSIDE the old city, and near the EXIT of the town. I... More

Lovely, friendly people, looked after us from the free pick up at the train station, to a super late check out while we waited to leave. Perfectly located away from the centre and close to the wall entrance, this is one of few places where you can imagine living in China a hundred years ago, except that is now has... More

We stayed 3 nights at this family-run guesthouse. The location is excellent, tucked away in a quiet hutong but close to the main street and shopping/restaurant areas. It's nice to explore on foot, away from the really touristy streets. The guest rooms all open onto a peaceful and lovely courtyard. It was very quiet while we were there. The rooms... More

We arrived from Beijing by train very (very) early in the morning (5.30 am) and when we called the night before and asked if they could pick us up from the train station it was no problem at all. The transfer was free of charge, as well as the transfer on our way back to the station when we left.... More

This is definitely no ordinary guesthouse/inn. It's traditional and compact. If you are a couple traveling, standard room B is not for you. It's too small and there's hardly enough room for your luggage as the bed takes most of the space. I guess the room plan is traditional in such a way that you do almost everything on your... More

This hotel is rated as “excellent” but IMHO is hardly close to “good”. I booked for two nights and when I arrived they had only two rooms left, both very close to the entrance/reception area. This meant every *early* morning I was woken up by the loud voices of employees and customers passing by and having breakfast. And, if you... More

Cute, quaint courtyard. We got complimentary pick up service from the train station to the hostel and arrived quite early. Was told that our room will not be ready in another 2-3 hours since we got here before our check in time. Front desk lady was nice enough to give us a room to rest until our room is ready.... More

The staff is very friendly, helpfull and speaks English very well. The hotel (located in the old city) has a beautiful courtyard where you can sit the whole day. In the evening, there were some mosquitoes, but the owner gave us a burning thingy (i never saw it before) that kept them away, very nice! We stayed in a standard... More
