Delicious local food in traditional surroundings

We stayed at the Pingyao Yide hotel during our two-night stay in Pingyao. As my mother-in-law was sick we did not venture far for dinner the first night and decided to eat at the hotel. The restaurant at the Yide was fantastic. They have a full array of authentically prepared local specialities... read more

A little far from the main streets, it is worth it to check this restaurant. Decoration and food are tradicional, but staff is trained to speak a little English. Food is good, a little more expensive than average (even though it is still cheap for tourists standards).

The menu though not extensive gave a good selection and everything was made fresh to order. Some western dishes got a little lost in translation ( we ordered an apple pancake for breakfast and it was actually a crepe with thin slices of apple on top) but it was all tasty just the same.

Excellent interaction via email beforehand, including for arranging a car from and back to Taiyuan airport. Location is great, wifi works perfectly, restaurant is very nice.

I was staying elsewhere but I decided to grab dinner her after having read the positive reviews on TA. The place was reasonably empty (low tourist season) so I had the three staff members to myself initially. They were friendly and prompt although knew minimal english. The food was fine, as was the tea. The food was reasonably priced although... More

The rooms were great, very authentic and comfortable I felt like I took a portal back into the 1700s. The food at the restaurant was delicious. The staff was friendly, the location okay and overall I really enjoyed my experience, until I got the bill at the end for my laundry. I gave the hotel a small bag of laundry,... More

If you are looking for a traditional court yard experience in Ping Yao, this is the place to stay. It is authentic (perfect photo ops), the food is excelent, the staff very helpful and friendly and all within walking distance of the main streets. Yes, the shower is a bit akward in the small bathroom we had, but hot and... More

I spent 4 days in Pingyao; three nights in this hotel.This was my 20th trip to China, but I would still say this hotel ranks among my best experiences. The atmosphere is unique; all the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. I do speak some Chinese, which of course helps, but the staff's English was absolutely adequate. I only had dinners...

Delicious breakfast - banana pancakes and pingyao noodles are definite highlights. Coffee is ok. Nice courtyard setting.

Among the best food we have had in China - and we used to live here. Fresh, delicious Chinese food for lunch or dinner. Good value. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. Charming tranquil restaurant space in an old building off a small courtyard. Highly recommended.
