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

There are many traditional style hotels here and I don't know how this one compares with the others. The room was okay but the old style makes the layout a bit funny and not entirely comfortable. Our room was a two level arrangement with the top being only the bed and the bottom being two chairs, a table and a... More

The guesthouse has a central courtyard around which the rooms are situated. There are some rooms on the first floor, requiring you to go up a small steep stair. The rooms are not big but comfortable, small minor point; the shower in our room was installed in such a way that the toilet would get wet when taking a shower.... More

Located in the centre of the old town Pingyao, this charming guesthouse is an authentic old Chinese house. It has a nice courtyard where you can relax and enjoy your dinner. Our room was "basic" but confortable with all you need. You can quite easily communinicate in English with the staff who is kind and helpful. There is also a... More

We had a lovely two-day (took the overnight train from Beijing which arrives at 7:30 a.m.), one-night stay at this courtyard hotel recently. The food was very good, probably easy to say the best we had while in Ping Yao, and it was not overpriced. The staff are very accommodating, very friendly, even meeting us at the train station to...
