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...

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
