Jing's Residence is a gem in the heart of Pingyao. From when I arrived until when I left, I felt absolutely at peace and relaxed and really looked after by the staff, led by the very kind manager Imam. The courtyard and the entire residence are absolutely beautiful. I felt immerse in an historic environment, yet at the same able... More

When you enter the hotel you enter a world of peace and tranquility, soft beds and pillows, spotless linen and towels, wonderful food and fantastic staff led by the manager Imam. The food is wonderful especially the ginger and honey glazed chicken. This... More

The best hotel I have stayed at in china and one of the best ever. Large beautiful rooms that are very comfortable and wonderfully designed. Large bathroom and shower. The courtyards are lovely. It is worth visiting Pingyao just to stay here. After 2 hectic weeks in china we found it a very relaxing place to stay where absolutely nothing... More

Jing's Residence is a charming, tranquil boutique hotel inside the walls of Pingyao, the beautifully preserved financial capital of the Qing dynasty. The hotel has a small number of rooms, perhaps a dozen, each a bit different one from the other spread over the two floors of a multi-court yarded Chinese villa. The decor throughout is designed to soothe with... More

Traipsing through China however beautiful and unbelievably historic can also be insanely stressful and nerve rattling. Upon finally arriving in Pingyao to Jings Residence, every stress melts away while a sense of amazement quickly spreads. The modern ultra chic yet clear homage to the historical setting is well done. The Manager/Owner greeted us with genuine warmth and quickly got us... More

Jing's Residence is stunning to say the least, so much love & attention to detail has gone into this unique property. Its worth coming to Pingyao just for the pleasure of staying in this 260 year old piece of history. We booked a courtyard room and were given a complimentary upgrade to a courtyard suite. Being winter we were worried... More

We stayed in Jing's for 2 nights over the Chinese New Year. From the moment we walked in the door we were made to feel like royalty. The wonderful Imam and the other staff could not do enough for us. We trailed with our children aged 10 and 8 yrs and they were welcomed and accommodated beautifully. I would highly... More

The Jing Residence was the highlight of my 3 week trip to China. I enjoyed everything from the traditional beds, the delicious ginger tea, spa treatments, and the overall experience at this boutique property. If you are looking for an authentic but luxurious experience, this is the place to stay. I only had the chance to stay 2 nights and... More

This hotel is located right in the middle of Pingyao's historical part and offers in an old house modern, tasteful and clean rooms with all the "luxury" a Western traveller expects. We have a preference for small boutique hotels for the reasons Jing's Residence fulfils: excellent and personal service in all areas. This is also valid for the restaurant where... More
