We did not stay here but we did eat here. I would recommend ordering the Pingyao farmhouse noodles, shredded pork, shredded potato and fried chicken. Delicious and with a couple of drinks only came to CYN 170 which included 30% tax. Waitress was delightful. Everyone is so friendly in the hotel.

If you go to Dejuyuan Guesthouse, like many of the other hotels in Pingyao, you are literally staying in a 400-year-old Chinese manor with wifi. There is really no other way to describe it. The setting is incredible! My significant other and I spent two nights here and it was like sleeping in the Qing Dynasty. The room we stayed... More

Despite speaking just OK English the staff is very friendly and accommodating and always ready to help. They arranged a driver to pick up my friend and me at 4 am form the bus stop. Our room looked like taken from the Ming dynasty, but the bathroom luckily ticked all the boxes of 21st century. The food served in the... More

When in Pingyao, good to stay at this clean B&B also because it is centrally located. We had upstairs basic room with large authentic wooden beams holding the ceiling. And with big and strong shower. Please note, wifi in central areas only. Also for the second B in B&B: breakfast not included!

We had high hopes for this place. I admit my opinion of it might be slighted clouded by the fact that I wasn't overly thrilled by Pingyao either. One day is definitely enough here, unless you plan a tour out of town. The room we had was at the back of the court yard up some very steep stairs, the... More

Pingyao is a very old town, enclosed by a city wall. Limited traffic is allowed in so we had to transfer from our bus to a golf buggy, which then stopped at an inner barrier, and we walked and dragged our bags from there. We stayed at the De ju yuan Guesthouse which was a beautiful historic guesthouse, with small... More

Sleeping here itself is an experience already. In the middle of the Old Town, in a typical old Chinese room, well equipped with all comfort. A cozy café / restaurant makes this stay unforgettable. Its a MUST to have slept here at least once, highly recommended. Again very clean.

In this restored ancient city where every building is original the Dejuyuan is just that a Ming dynasty courtyard building complex turned into a hotel. Staff are great, food is excellent and then to the rooms. Well they are what they are, your beds are traditional so built of bricks, the furniture is original, so pretty basic, and you get... More

We stayed for two nights in November. It was really cold outside, but our rooms (007+008) were nice and warm. Both the AC and the wi-fi in the rooms worked well. The rooms were large and had great big beds (2x2m). We never had lunch or dinner there (recommend Sakura or Dejuyan), but breakfast was tasty and plentyfull. The best... More

This is a lovely restored Ming dynasty building built around a courtyard giving a great "olde world" feeling. The staff are very helpful and the restaurant serves great local food at very reasonable prices. There are only 11 rooms and we were lucky to have a deluxe one decorated with Qing-style furniture. The bathroom was modern and although I am... More
