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.

We stayed here because of the reviews on TA, and we liked it a lot. The traditional courtyard house felt just right in the ancient city of Pingyao. Our king size bed was very comfortable and the paper covered windows really made the atmosphere, although I don't know what it would be like in winter. We ate dinner in the... More

We stayed at the attached hotel and had a number of meals. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the low lighting/candles create a nice atmosphere. The menu has a good mix of local Pingyao/Shanxi, other Chinese and Western cuisine. The Pingyao beef and Shanxi noodles were particularly good, as were the Banana and Apple pancakes for breakfast.

Been there following good reviews on trip advisor. Excellent advice. The food was very good and tasty (The Pingyao beef and potatoes dish was delicious). The location is a bit ex centered but within 5 min walk. We spent RMB 100 for beef, rice and eggplant, all of it tasted delicious. The atmosphere is really nice, waiters are nice and... More

over our 2 week trip we had the most consistently good food at our hotel - quite surprising as off the beaten trip, but excellent

The restaurant was fantastic. It's decorated tastefully, offers delicious authentic local food and the staff are great. It's not very expensive either. We tried other restaurants around Pingyao but no other came close. It's also a beautiful place to just relax and have some tea if you want to take a break from sightseeing. Be sure to try the fried... More

Not sure I can add anything new to other reviewers but certainly endorse comments about atmosphere, quality of food, service and the lovely bathroom. The shredded pork with coriander was delicious, Pingyao beef with potatoes was so tender it almost fell apart when you picked it up and spinach with garlic was also very tasty. Excellent. Didn't stay at the... More

After reading rave reviews about Yide Hotel on trip advisor, my partner and I set out to discover it on our bikes one day during our stay in Pingyao. Situated off the main tourist area of the city, Yide Hotel is quiet and idilic. Whilst we didn't stay here we had 2 amazing dinners (we came back 2 nights in... More

We came here one night for dinner and liked it so much we came back another night. The courtyard is amazing. Antique, classic, peaceful and comfortable. If you cant stay at the hotel (we stayed somewhere else) have a meal here and look around the courtyard. It was a school two hundred plus year ago. The setting and atmosphere are... More
