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

Very good and nice hotel, exceptional location and probably the best in Pingyao. Rooms are very good, but service does not meet the standards of an international boutique luxury hotel. We had to wait several minutes and finally went to look for someone who could take care of us in the hotels bar.

Simply stunning, the old courtyard style conserved and transformed into a splendid and luxurious holte atmosphere. The team gives you a very personalized attention, making you feel welcome at any minute you are staying there. The place is ideal to escape the Pingyao city frenzy, when busloads of tourists swarm out to visit the numerous musees and the ancient city... More

This is a great boutique hotel in the heart of historic Pingyao. The staff are very enthusiastic and keen to please, though the standard of English is not the same as in the bigger tourist centres in China. The rooms are around a courtyard and have been well designed: they retain a lot of original features but have modern plumbing,... More

While Pingyao was a bit of a disappointment for me ( it is essentially two long streets of shopping) Jings Residence was an oasis in a storm of tourists! It is located on one of those shopping streets but once inside it is quiet and very serene. The service is outstanding and the dinner we had was excellent (though pricy... More

This place is totally overwhelming... You must stay at least one night if you have the opportunity to do so. So quiet, so gentle. You will certainly remember your stay in the Jing's Residence. I have been staying twice already and will certainly come back, even I do know really well Pingyao, but just to rest in the Jing's Residence.

I felt absolutely pampered staying at Jing's Residence. The hotel is within the old walled city of Pingyao. The building has been restored but it is the original design of rooms based around courtyards. My room and most importantly my bed were extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed. I especially liked the lacquered wall in the bedroom. It is always a... More

Pingyao itself is fascinating: the old town is within ancient walls, rebuilt in 1370, with houses just outside the walls cleared in the last couple of years, then with the modern city spreading out beyond. Parts of the old city are buzzing and very well restored, interestingly some streets are quite run down, with many buildings unoccupied. Right in the... More

In the middle of the ancient city walls of busy, bustling Pingyao and behind the huge wooden doors of Jings Residence you will find an oasis of peace and quiet. The beautifully restored modern rooms within the 260 year old courtyards are very comfortable with all modern conveniences. The English speaking staff were very keen to make our stay as... More

Jing's Residence is a gem in the heart of Pingyao. From when I arrived until when I left, I felt absolutely at peace and relaxed and really looked after by the staff, led by the very kind manager Imam. The courtyard and the entire residence are absolutely beautiful. I felt immerse in an historic environment, yet at the same able... More
