WHen I visited Pingyao, I felt like stepping into an Ip Man/Kung Fu Master movie. This hotel amplified that experience as, like most of Pingyao, it is a beautifully restored 1000-year old historic oriental masterpiece. It really felt like one was staying at Ip Man's place itself!...well in addition of the excellent breakfast, modern amenities like WiFi and television, cozy... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a master suite with our 5 year old son. The room was a large opened planned space which had sheer curtains which could be strategically closed. My son slept on a beautiful day bed, which he declared was the comfiest bed he had ever slept on! The decor and furniture were exquisite. The food... More

I was afraid it would look like an attraction park but I was really impressed by the quality of the place. The house is extremely elegant. The owner had a great taste to bring a bit of modernity while keeping its historic character present. It is just sad that there are no more places such as Ping Yao in China.

The room is simple but very cozy, with all the modern conveniences we could want. The bathroom is also beautiful and amenities of... More

We stayed at Jings residence for 2 nights in May 2014 and it truly was Paradise in Pingyao! The staff of Jings are beyond wonderful - their personal caring and unfaltering service, adds to the peaceful ambience of this boutique hotel.

We stayed there only for one night in June 2014, and I am really sorry that we couldn't stay longer. The atmosphere is fantastic - just the right thing for someone who needs to wind down and who needs some peace. It is a lovely contrast to the busy streets of Pingyao! The staff is extremely attentive and seems to... More

We stayed there for two nights and we wish it had been longer. The hotel is elegant, authentic, comfortable, and luxurious. The food was excellent, and the staff was exceptional -- helpful, friendly, and efficient. The hotel provides a wonderful base for exploring Pingyao and is located in the central pedestrian-only area (which makes it very quiet, particularly since no... More

Jing's Residence provides a peaceful sanctuary from the dusty busy streets of Pingyao. As soon as the doors are closed to the street the hotel provides a haven of beautifully restored old China incorporating what travellers want today - comfortable and clean room, good service, and exceptional food thanks to chef Jackson. The library with comfortable chairs and high speed... More
