The cheapest stay in my entire trip to northern China at RMB35/6-bed dorm. Staff were extremely helpful. Shower/toilet facilities are below par especially shower water was just lukewarm. They run a restaurant in the small lounge area which end up having to ask lounging staying guests to move along - not nice.

Me and my husband stopped here for a few in between having a sneaky foot massage. Great atmosphere and popular. Lots of comfy chairs and a cheery atmosphere with a pool table also. Very well catered to westerners and no 50-60 yuan rip off beers like most places.

A Traditional courtyard building in the heart of pingyao, making access to any of the attractions very easy. Staff speak minimal (if any) english, except the manager Bob, who is a very kind and friendly man. I found the room clean, but during one night some of the local occupants started smoking without opening any doors or windows, which was... More

We booked a 20 bed dorm for 15 rm so we didn't expect much. Once we booked, we got an immediate email from Tommy asking what train we were arriving on and he would pick us up. We emailed back the info and he picked us up. We did have the directions for walking just in case he didn't show... More

We had a hard time locating the property and they had no record of our booking at all. The building is very old so there was very steep steps to get to the room and we had some issues with cockroaches etc at night. The air con when working was good and the bed was comfortable and large. The bathroom... More

The building itself is beautiful with a gorgeous courtyard and was in a great location. There are two buildings next to each other that are both called Zhengjia. According to our reservation we stayed at Zhengjia garden hotel. The staff spoke very limited English, some better than others. For the most part this wasn't a problem as you get a... More

This residence is actually split in two - the hotel and the hostel. I stayed in the hostel, which is a few doors to the right of the hotel. The building itself is great - a traditional old-style courtyard. The rooms are OK, the fittings are a little dirty but the beds are clean and the lockers are nice and... More
