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...

We rented two rooms for two nights which each faced the courtyard. Clean bathrooms and reliable hot water. Good sized beds and very clean linens, etc. The hotel is a lovely authentic courtyard house and when the front doors are open, you can sip tea in your courtyard house and look into the courtyard of the restored house across the...

We arrived in Pingyao on the overnight train from Xi'an at 6 in the morning. We walked to the guesthouse, enjoying the quiet of the city. Of course I didn't expect our room to be ready at that early hour (and it wasn't), but thought we would drop off our bags anyhow. Upon entering, the lovely young attendant offered us... More

We stayed 3 nights here during a visit to Pingyao and found it to be exactly what we had hoped for in Pingyao. An authentic courtyard house that has been tastefully converted into a guesthouse with clean, comfortable and well-maintained rooms.
