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

Absolutely lovely! Yes, it is expensive, but the experience of staying here is wonderful. We had the hotel pick us up at the new train station (new bullet train from Beijing and Xi'An) and the car delivers you just a few steps away from the hotel with the driver walking with you the remainder of the way. A wonderful welcome... More

It is worth going to Pingyao just to stay at Jing's. The room was beautiful, the staff attentive and helpful and the restaurant first class. We chose the option of including dinner and had three excellent meals chosen from a set menu with plenty of choices and local specialties, and a good wine list. There is plenty to do in... More

We've just returned home from an amazing 'first' adventure in China. Although we stayed in many wonderful places, Jing's Residence has a sublime quality that I can't quite put into words. It felt like a meditation of sorts. The ambience and essence of Jing's Residence is summed up in my mind as a harmonious fusion of old China elegance and... More

A lesson in how to run a boutique hotel. Iman and staff were great. Really interesting rooms. Food excellent. Like staying with friends. Henry taught us how to cook (and eat) noodles. Can't recommend enough.
