Jing's residence is wonderful; the rooms are beautifully designed, the staff wonderfully attentive and the food delicious. If you are coming to Ping Yao, this is the place to stay (though it isn't cheap!) Ping Yao itself was not that exciting. When we were there in March it was quite polluted and grey, but i imagine with better weather it... More

Our stay was far too short: only 1 night. The room with Kang-bed was high class and lots of little goodies (tea, fruit) made it even more enjoyable. Our very late night-dinner was exquisite, as was the breakfast. Staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. The residence itself has kept its traditional character throughout meticulous restauration. Artistic... More

This is an authentic house with a high level of service and quite luxury rooms. Everything is done for the guest to feel confortable.The restaurant is very pleasant with local specialties. The location is perfect in the middle of the old town. Martin arrange for us an early arrival (5 am) with a special breakfast and early departure (5.30 am).

I stayed here for two nights, and it was a fantastic experience. I have previously been to Pingyao 4 times, and while the environment is quaint and authentic, Jing's residence is on another level altogether. Staff were professional and attentive, and the ambience is rather magical. Try the food as well - the international selection is really impressive, and they... More

I am more used to hasty trip and stays in backpackers hostels, so when I arrived here with the smily welcome by Imam, Martin, Troy, the welcome cup of tea, relaxed small talk, I could feel this was going to be a change for once in my travelling style. The location is perfect (for the moment, we do not know... More

We spent two nights at Jing's residence and loved every minute of it. It is an ultra-charming property set in one of the few 250+ year-old courtyard properties that makes Pingyao so special. Despite the fact that their lanterns were white, there was somehow a feeling of being in the film "Raise the Red Lantern" (which set we had visited... More

We previously visited Pingyao 10 years ago and stayed in a 'Traditional' Chinese Hotel. We remembered that as cold, damp and uncomfortable. Jing's Residence was the complete opposite, it had the traditional feel, but with warmth, comfort and luxury. All the staff were very helpful and they organized noodle-making, shoe-making and paper-cutting which our children aged 7 and 8 thoroughly... More

this place was a real highlight of our recent trip to China. What makes it stand out is the level of personal service and attention to detail. All the staff are delightful- some to mention are Martin, Crystal, shy Jennifer and of course Imam. The little extras- such as the red tassels on the luggage, the nightly turn down service,... More

We stayed at the Jing's Residence for 3 nights in October 2013, as part of an extension to a Silk Road private tour. During planning of this trip more than a year ago, I have told our tour operator (Cox & Kings USA) that I wanted to secure a 3-night reservation at this unique boutique hotel, before we would commit...

Overall experience at Jing's was truly wonderful during my brief 2-night stay in mid-Oct. Location was fantastic. The courtyard hotel was beautifully restored, and the interiors, well-appointed and elegant...Jing was a real oasis of calm & comfort in the heart of historic Pingyao! Loved all the little touches too... from the warm ginger tea the moment I arrived (compliments from... More
