We arrived there today without a booking to find it closed. Apparently, according to the restaurant directly opposite it closes for the winter. It is certainly closed!! Moral of the storey; book ahead, but it is always cheaper on the day then on line!! Plenty of other choices and in fact paid the same price for a beautiful onsuite room... More

This place was my favorite part of a pretty uninspiring trip to Pingyao. The traditional setting is beautiful and the rooms were clean. Best bathroom I've seen yet in China. It was a bit pricey (240 rmb for a private double with bath) but for a nice, clean room with a great English speaking staff I couldn't complain. They also... More

This is a really beautiful hotel with room set around a traditional courtyard lit up by lanterns in the evening. It's peaceful because it's away from the main road (where there's hardly any traffic allowed anyway) and it looks stunning. The room was also really pretty and old-fashioned in decor, a real treat to stay in. However I can't fail... More

Pingyao ancient city is historically interesting, but somehow spoiled by the massive tourism and annoying souvenir shops. The Harmony Guesthouse is influenced by this. The rooms and facility atmosphere is absolutely charming. But the attitude of the staff is more business-like and less welcoming than what we have found until now in China, mostly in Beijing. The tourists invasion was... More

We, two families of 8 adults and 2 children, stayed at the Pingyao Harmony Guesthouse for two nights. And it was wonderful! A respite from the big western-style hotels we stayed on during the rest of our trip. The Guesthouse is housed in a traditional courtyard complex in the middle of the hustle and bustle of ancient Pingyao. Instead of... More

Arrived from Beijing West by train,we phoned Harmony before to arrange a pick up. As the high speed train stations are along way out,we were told that we would have to pay(free pick up is advertised) we agreed to this. But, when we arrived there was no pick up waiting for us. Luckily,we were told that a bus that was... More

The room was relatively clean with air con, TV and comfy bed, the bathroom was clean and the shower was hot. There was a good hotel reception/social area. The guesthouse matches the city as historic and authentic with a great entrance and courtyard. You can book tours and tickets with the help of the staff, most of which speak very... More

Pingyao was without a doubt my favourite city in China. Entering the walled city is like entering another world. The city dates back hundreds of years and continues with many of its ancient traditions. Staff had very good English and went above and beyond to make our trip more enjoyable. We were given assistance booking transport by train from Pingyao... More

When you enter the walled-city at Pingyao you step back hundreds of years in many ways. In terms of modern traveling, you step back at least several decades. There is almost no English any where within the walls of the city. The street signs are sporadic, making navigating at first a real challenge. Pingyao is one of those Chinese cities... More

Booked a room thinking that it would be at the guesthouse but actually it was at their hotel on west street that bears the same name and belongs to the same owner. The place looks nice and the room was clean and well equipped, but the place was undergoing a major renovation at the time I visited so the common... More
