When we approached the hotel, my first thought was "oh no" as it faced a busy tourist street but once inside it was quiet and peaceful. All the rooms are in separate courtyards set in the back of the hotel. Yes, the beds are Chinese style meaning hard but the pads made it comfortable and there were more pads in... More

I just stayed here and was NOT impressed at all, I certainly would recommend NOT staying here. The beds were not just hard, might as well have been on a floor board. The staff were very relectant to give us extra duvets, though we finally got them. Overall the staff were all very non-engaged and not helpful at all. There... More

It is now known as the International Financier Club and is right in the middle of the walled city - an ideal location to see all the sights. We had a lovely Chinese style room and whilst the beds are a little hard, they are not uncomfortable at all and rather delightful. All mod cons on hand and really quiet... More

Pingyao in general is an experience. This is a city that uses coal to for heat and contains many ancient structures within the city walls. It is amazing how dirty our shoes got from coal dust. Part of the experience was staying in the kong style bed and staying in a room with Ming style decor. As mentioned before the... More

the hotel is in a nice setting and has character,but!, if,as we did your tour company puts you in a traditional room with a brick bed,thats exactly what you get. Even with extra duvets it is just rock hard.

The toilet is the worst in all my years of travel. How can a 5 star hotel does not allow us to put toilet paper into the WC pan? The staff told me a lie that all hotels in Pingyao are the same. I found out from friends that the hotel they stayed (also in Pingyao old town) does not... More

We found this a delightful place to stay for 3 nights. It was very quiet on the first night, and we were probably the only visitors, being at the end of the slow season. The rooms were as we expected - decor and furnishing in renovated Ming style, and clean, warm and comfortable. We really could find nothing of complaint.... More

Although it's called International Financier Club; this is not a business hotel. The name refers to Pingyao's 19th century status as the major banking center of China. If you're charmed by the idea of sleeping in a traditional Chinese room in a Ming and Qing Dynasty courtyard complex, this might be the place for you. But only if you think... More

Just loved the architecture. Service is acceptable too. Conveniently located inside the 'old town'.

I stayed two nights in the International Financier Hotel in Pingyao. It is in the center of the tourist part of Pingyao in a beautiful restored Ming period house with rooms facing small interior courtyards. Elaborate, colorfully decorated architecture provides a Ming immersion experience. My room was divided by a lattice screen into a sleeping area and a sitting area.... More
