There are two Harmony guesthouses run by the same owner. We arrived at 6 am on Saturday and did not book amything in advance. We could easily find the city and started walking down the street looking for Harmony guesthouse when this gentleman told us he knows the way, turned out it was the owner and he lead us to... More

Really can't think of any cons! I stayed in a private room in the main guesthouse. Pros: - Location: on the main street, but not too deep into the touristy section. Close to the city walls and some good food options. - Staff: extremely helpful and friendly! Mrs Deng was particularly thoughtful and just simply lovely! - Travel information: everything... More

We stayed here for two nights, and had a lovely time. Nothing was too much trouble, and the staff were kind and friendly. As we were leaving Mrs Deng managed to organise a great guide/driver for us in Xian too - excellent!

Choose wisely in Pingyao, I think there are better options than Harmony. The two inner courtyards are very nice, but all hotels/hostels in Pingyao have this. Harmony's are fitted with narrow and very uncomfortable wooden benches. I went to order food but the girl seemed so frustrated to have to move from the TV sofa I didn't bother. My check-in... More

Shame on me I could not stay more than one night in Harmony hostel in PingYao , I planed to stay longer but the train was fully booked days in advance. If you follow the direction when you booked the accommodation it is easy to get there. Try not to come on the weekend it is so busy, there is... More

we were sent to their "new" houses after checking in. the house has just finished the painting job and we can smell all the chemicals in the air. too bad it was our only choice during the stay, otherwise we might have enjoyed more. the brand new bathroom already has leaking problems. the staff is nice but the place needs...

Spent two nights here in a double room and would suggest you do the same. I'm sure that the owners will be willing to strike you a deal like they did for me. The place was set over a very pretty courtyard and has a great entrance room which combines a restaurant, a lounge bar and a reception. A very... More

A beautiful courtyard is the central area of this hostel. The rooms aren’t that huge, but the beds are. It is a clean place and the location is in the historic centre of Pingyao. Friendly and helpful staff.

A perfect hotel in Pingyao. It is centrally located, easy to find and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The 2 owners speak very good english but the rest of the staff should make an effort of trying it. Standard room are too small for a lot of luggage. The bathroom were not design for a shower, so remove... More

The main building looked fine and the owners were happy to help with most things. This is a small place owned by a family do not expect to meet many other people. I spent a while in pingyao after messing up my train ticket. It's a nice town, but the centre, particularly the main to a is very very touristy.... More
