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

This hotel endevours to please it's guest 100% in ever way, and it does . Nothing is left to chance. Every small detail and expectation is catered for. Our stay was an experience in calming and slowing down after rushing around China. Excellent surrounding, delightful staff, first class and very friendly service. Attentive General Manager from Indonesia who was delightful... 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.

There are not enough superlatives to describe our two-night respite at Jing's. Simply based on the previous TA reviews, the fascinating descriptions in the website and accompanying pictures, we had booked ourselves into a courtyard SUITE (the "rooms" cost just a little less but are much smaller). Though the rates are nothing less than premium, it does come with with... More

We spent two nights at this boutique hotel. Imam and his staff were very well trained and made us feel at home immediately. The staff were polite and did everything they could to make our stay extremely enjoyable. The quality of the service here is comparable, if not better, than high end hotels like Aman, Four Seasons, Fairmont, etc. Imam... More
