This traditional courtyard hotel in the ancient walled city is a very beautiful building. This does however mean that it has lots of steps and would be completely unsuitable for anyone disabled. This was the only hotel we stayed in which had no room safe; nor did it have any English-language TV channels. The shower was not very warm, and... More

Bathroom is a bit more than basic while bed is hard but pretty comfortable. Room is a bit tight but still enjoyable. Breakfast is average. Staff speak some English and they... More

Granted, you don't get to the lovely and interesting Ancient City of Pingyao just to stay in your hotel... So what you should expect is just a proper place to stay with a proper bed, a clean and functional bathroom to take a warm shower, and to get a decent breakfast. And you won't get that at Hongshanyi Inn. Yes... More

Its a charming traditional hotel within minutes of the ancient centre of the town. The rooms are very small. But clean and build in a traditional way. Staff is friendly, wifi is good, breakfast is okay!

Stayed here 2 nights as part of a tour package. Electric golf carts are used to transfer tourists from outside city wall to inner hotels.

We are about to check out now after 3 nights stay in Pingyao.
