We arrived in Pingyao by train and, due to tiredness succumbed to a fleecing from one of the many taxi drivers outside the station. As others have suggested, take the bus - it's really easy and very cheap! The hotel itself is tucked down a side street but an easy walk into the centre of the town. The bed was... More

I'll start of by saying this hotel is down a long ally near the north city gate which is about 10 - 15min walk from the main activities. The hotel itself is very nice small and quaint hover sound travels easily so I was woken both mornings by barking dogs and birds at 6 am and couldn't get to bed... More

I really loved this hotel. The inner courtyard is welcoming and scenic. There is an atmosphere of peace all around. My room was traditionally furnished with a raised bed and comfortable. The only let down was breakfast, on which they need to work harder. The staff overall were charming.

The Chenglia Hotel is a quaint little hotel in a quaint old town. It is in old-style buildings and is nicely decorated with red lanterns, and other old items that give the feel of staying in the hotel centuries ago. I enjoyed my stay at the Chenglia Hotel and in Pingyao, but the hotel was not without its faults and... More

First impressions of this hotel were great, after arriving late at night and being personally collected at the gates of the old city to ensure we wouldn't get lost. The rooms are average, and the bed is on the hard side - but the location is perfect, and the price reasonable.

Stayed for 2 nights. Was upgraded to a bigger room (805). Very authentic. The bed is high and the mattress is feels abit like the japanese futon. Pillows are hard though.The toilet & shower is modern and clean. The room is not spacious. It does not have any cupboard. Not an issue for me. In fact, I stayed on the... More

We were kindly upgraded to a bigger room on arrival which was a nice gesture given the standard rooms do not come with heating. However the bed was very hard and the pillows were uncomfortable. Other than that the staff were friendly and the place was nice.

We, a friend and I, stayed there for two nights and we loved every bit about it. It was already love at first sight, the historical entrance, the beautiful, well looked after courtyard, the friendliness of the employees... The room was big, super clean and beautiful. Equipped with the typical large Kang-bedding, which was very comfortable, toiletries, hair dryer, tea... More

We stayed two nights in this "hotel" which we cannot call a hotel because everything is so different from European standards. Our room was great with a huge bed. The courtyard is absolutely lovely with birds, trees and Chinese people talking very early in the morning but we didn't mind because we didn't want to be with tourists all the... More

My husband and I stayed here with our adult daughter in April 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bed is an amazing experience. We all slept in it, and could have fitted 1-2 more. Through the day it doubles as your sitting area. There is a pleasant courtyard for relaxing in and downing a beer or too on a hot... More
