We stayed at Jing's Residence for 2 nights and this was really a wonderful experience. After the noise and the crowd of the city , Jing's Residence offers a quiet and peaceful environment, sophisticated yet making you feel like in a friend's or family home. From the rooms and exquisite decoration, to the restaurant and the staff, everything was perfect.... More

Staying at this lovely, small hotel is like stepping back into Chinese history and experiencing the elegant life of a wealthy courtyard existence. The staff, headed by Imam, are most gracious and helpful. The rooms are just as depicted on the website and the entire property feels like a refuge when you return from exploring this amazing walled city. We... More

Lovely Pingyao now lies on the high speed train line (300kph) linking Beijing and Xian, and so is very easy to visit by very comfortable trains. We had seen other excellent reviews of Jings Residence and were not disappointed. It is situated in the 'pedestrian area' with access with your luggage almost to the door using electric vehicles from just... More

Jing's Residence was a perfect experience: a rare combination of a hotel that reaches both the high standards of any world class hotel, combined with the charm, intimacy, and uniqueness of a small operation. It is exactly what a boutique hotel should be. Imam and his staff cared for our every need. The hotel was beautiful and historic, yet modern... More

We stayed two nights, three days at this memorable boutique hotel of 17 rooms. I specifically asked our tour agent from China HIghlights (which I highly recommend, Coco Yang) to book this place. I had seen an small excerpt from the Lonely Planet, and wanted to make sure to visit this pictureque village. I was not disappointed. It was simple,... More

In 5 weeks of travel across mainland China, this is the standout, hands down, fantastic winner. The staff, guided by the competent and gracious host, Imam, are truly unique for their hospitality within China. Everything was meticulously prepared and organized, from check in to tea service to additional activities within the hotel. Keep up the great work and the friendly... More

Our visit to Pingyao, an ancient walled city, was made special with our 2-night stay at Jing's Residence. Everything about this hotel is wonderful. The accommodations and amenities are a reflection of the location and their philosophy. An unexpected delight was to wake up to the soft sounds of chirping birds. This boutique hotel has been thoughtfully renovated. The location... More

A superb hotel - with attentive staff, very well appointed rooms and food second to none. The traditionally laid out courtyard, with room off it, provides a serene haven for recovery after a long journey (you must have travelled a long way to get to PIngyao!). The staff - led by Imam - are quietly attentive seeing to all of... More

The Jing's Residence is absolutely the best place to stay at in the old city of Pingyao. It is an oasis of hospitality, comfort and service in a gorgeous and well preserved old walled city in China. The best part of the hotel is how the architects have combined modern amenities inside the buildings while preserving the outside beautiful northern... More

Pingyao is being developed as an up and coming tourist destination in China. We saw very few westerners and many Chinese tourists. Fascinating walled city but it is still a work in progress. But... we loved the Jing's Residence. The hotel is built in classic courtyard style and winds around a couple of twists and turns. Our room was very... More
