We just returned to Shanghai from a wonderful long weekend in PIngyao. Yide was the perfect location for our explorations. Yide was amazing even before we arrived. They called us a few days before our planned arrival and inquired about our transportation. We were flying into Taiyuan and then taking the train, so we didn't know exactly when we'd get... More

Really lovely hotel, set in an old family courtyard home. Very tranquil atmosphere especially in the restaurant. The room was small but really nice, and clean. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Bike rentals were cheap (though our bikes were a bit rickety). We'd definitely recommend this hotel - we really enjoyed staying there and chilling out in the restaurant... More

Booked this hotel because of the positive comments on Tripadvisor. Were hesitant though, because if the expectations are high, chances are that they are not fulfilled. Cannot be anything but positive about this hotel. Roomrates are above average but rooms are clean (cleaned everyday and new towels everyday). Hotel not located on the main shopping street but in a very... More

Beautiful, atmospheric hotel with helpful, friendly staff.The food in the restaurant is great and decently priced. On our second day we hired one of their vans to take us to the Qiao Family Courtyard and on to Taiyuan. The van was clean and new, and the driver made sure we made it to our train with plenty of time to... More

My friend and I only stayed with them for one night, but we were absolutely amazed by how outstanding their customer service is. The staff is very nice and patient and they went out of their way to help us. One of the girls in the reception even borowed me her scarf for the day, as the weather got suddenly... More

If you want to experience old China, this hotel is the place. Authentic but updated with a modern bath (small, shower in main bathroom meaning floor gets wet). Good AC, wifi, excellent staff with good command of English. The hotel picked us up at the train station, which was a big help. There is a restaurant on the premises with... More

Again, the Yide Hotel was chosen as our preferred hotel from Trip Advisor reviews, and it was just perfect in all respects. We had an old man pick us up from the train station on his bike. How he managed to strap our 2 cases and us on to the back of his bike was remarkable, and it began our... More

This hotel is a great place to say and fits perfectly with Pingyao authentic atmosphere. The historical look makes for great pictures. The staff were extremely helpful and considerate. The location is convenient - near the old town's central street, but far enough so its peaceful and quiet and does not feel commercial. There is a quiet restaurant with English... More

I booked the small single room up on the rooftop and it was charming. The bed is above the bathroom and it is really VERY small, but fine for one person. Decor was lovely. Hotel staff were great, couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfasts are a little restricted, but you are in China and I don't think I have... More
