This was by far the best hostel I stayed in during my stay in China. The location is perfect, in the middle of the old center, the people who work is speak English very well, and the rooms are very spacious and very comfortable. It really feels like your living in an old dynasty. I would definitely recommend this for... More

Very traditional, rustic, courtyard hotel with modern interiors. Great location on one of the main streets. The staff is very friendly and always had an English speaker on duty to help with questions and travel arrangements. They were able to arrange a solo excursion to Wang Family Courtyard (highly recommended). The restaurant does a good job with both Chinese food... More

A charming place with atmospehere. Great location on the major pedestrian street in the old town. Rooms are small, but comfortable. Decent wifi. The negative aspects: Laundry is very expensive (5 Rmb for a pair of socks) It takets time before the shower gets hot The cuisine is uneven. Taxis arranger by the hotel are expensive

Came here primarily for the outdoor courtyard seating at the back, though there isn't enough seating and the benches are small and narrow. Inside is much better, lots more spaces, huge menu, great food and good music. Staff attentive and friendly. Good opening hours too, 7am!

A fantastic location in the heart of the city, inside the city walls. Within minutes walking distance to the shops, museums, city walls. The room was warm, underfloor heated, clean-ish (the floors could do with a good scrub) and the bathroom was of a good size, clean and comfortable. This guesthouse is an old fashioned courtyard home - so understand... More

Very reasonably priced. Very clean rooms with an authentic old world feel but modern amenities, including wifi, western toilets, heating and air conditioning. Their restaurant is great good and ranked #3. They rent bikes for RMB 10/day which is a great walls to explore the city. While in town, make sure to have Pingyao beef with cilantro!

The guest house has an ideal location right in the middle of the ancient town / city of Pingyao close to the large tower astride the main street. We were met by Alice who was very helpful and spoke excellent English. The rooms are all set inside a small maze of courtyards - in fact one of the most memorable... More
