When you get there, impossible to find the "hotel" (beware: it's a hostel). The street number doesn't match and the name is not obvious nor consistent --it's misspelled in several ways. Then, our room wasn't ready, at 10:00pm!! We had to wait. The staff is said to be English speaking but they're not! The room was small, no window, some... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Pingyao. The Rooms are a small although well appointed, if there is no much room for luggage. The courtyard is beautiful and servers s a dinning area for the restaurant. The rooms can do with some TLC and the beds are the thin mattress type (which I find comfortable but it's... More

We stayed at the Yuchengyuan Inn for 2 nights on our way from Beijing to Xian and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Hostel is a short taxi from the train station (20 Yuan) and easy walking distance to the main streets and the city wall. Our train was delayed so we didn't arrive until 1am, but there was a member... More

Staff was extremely helpful, considerate and friendly. We speak Mandarin, so that may have helped somewhat in communicating our needs. With a language barrier, things may not go as smoothly, but I do believe that they truly want to make all their guests comfortable and happy. Some of the things they did that made our stay special: - Free pickup... More

Bookable on Booking.com with free cancellation up to 24 hrs before. Guaranteed by credit card but had to pay cash on arrival. One lady speaks reasonable English, others are a bit hit and miss but friendly. Arrived at 07:00, allowed to drop luggage. Returned at 09:00, allowed to move into room, so a real bonus. Room is basic, nice Katang... More

Location very central in the main street in Pingyao, but rooms were quiet. Hotel arranged transfer from train station for free when we arrived early in the morning. We could check into our room,...
