We were not staying in this hotel, but had a meal here. Shockingly overpriced for food they even charged us for our plates and cups. Rices was 6yuan usually 2 in most places, and rice arrived as we had finished eating. Food was ok, nothing special and a pity it was not hot. Service was disinterested as we were not... More

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of the old city. Easy walk to everything inside the walls. The courtyards and furnishings are beautiful by day and nicely lit by night. The staff was genuinely interested in our happiness. They stored our luggage for the day and arranged convenient taxis to the high speed rail station. Breakfast... More

This hotel was sold to us as a five star hotel. The room was uncomfortable, dirty and the bed was very hard. We were cold as there was no carpet on the floor and the heating did not work efficiently. The staff were not very friendly and spoke no English. There was no bar or comfortable lounge area in which... More

Great location at West Main Street in the old town. Lots of cafes and noodle shops near by. The hotel is nicely decorated, new and clean. Rooms are not sound proof, so guests are recommended not to talk loudly in the courtyards. It is nice to rest at the courtyards and watch stars above it at night. Room is small,... More

First of all, the hotel is beautiful. Bathrooms are nicely appointed. And the location is excellent. Staff was helpful as well. The negatives... Beds were super hard. Because of the design of the place, if some people want to wake up early and start making noise and talk loud, you will hear it. Also, there was a strange urine-like smell... More

This hotel was a great find. Situated in the old town and easy walking distance to great bars, cafes and restaurants plus all the tourist attractions. My friend and I were upgraded and were given a very comfortable room at the end of the courtyard. It was a large twin room with comfy beds and a large renovated bathroom. The... More

The Hotel is beautiful, but the room is small. the bathroom is pretty dark and the toilet is easily chocked. when complained to the staff, they took nearly 25mins to come up to settle it. the water pressure for the shower is also very weak. Wifi not that strong, but luckily LAN port is working fine, thus able to use... More

Enjoted my stay at this beautiful courtyard hotel. Arrived at 8 in the morning and was able to check in immediately. Good size room near all the sites of the ancient city of Pingyao. Staff was helpful and spoke decent English. Breakfast could use a little improvement as buffet was not available as hotel was not busy.
