The building is one old traditional style and it is beautiful decorated with traditional red lights for the night. The room is really cozy, nice and clean. it feels like in a movie. Have a great location on the main street. Excelent Wifi connection.

Really nice rooms, real courtyard feeling. Bathroom is a 'wet' bathroom, so if you don;t like that, this guesthouse is not for you. Staff is nice and attentive. It is centrally located in Pingyao, restaurants and bar right around the corner.

The Harmony guesthouse / hotel is a lovely place to stay. Nice size traditional Chinese rooms set around a beautiful courtyard, lit with large red lanterns. The staff are friendly and the owner, Mrs Deng, speaks good English and is always happy to help and offer advice on what to see and where to visit. Food is good value and... More

We arrived there today without a booking to find it closed. Apparently, according to the restaurant directly opposite it closes for the winter. It is certainly closed!! Moral of the storey; book ahead, but it is always cheaper on the day then on line!! Plenty of other choices and in fact paid the same price for a beautiful onsuite room... More

This place was my favorite part of a pretty uninspiring trip to Pingyao. The traditional setting is beautiful and the rooms were clean. Best bathroom I've seen yet in China. It was a bit pricey (240 rmb for a private double with bath) but for a nice, clean room with a great English speaking staff I couldn't complain. They also... More

This is a really beautiful hotel with room set around a traditional courtyard lit up by lanterns in the evening. It's peaceful because it's away from the main road (where there's hardly any traffic allowed anyway) and it looks stunning. The room was also really pretty and old-fashioned in decor, a real treat to stay in. However I can't fail... More

Pingyao ancient city is historically interesting, but somehow spoiled by the massive tourism and annoying souvenir shops. The Harmony Guesthouse is influenced by this. The rooms and facility atmosphere is absolutely charming. But the attitude of the staff is more business-like and less welcoming than what we have found until now in China, mostly in Beijing. The tourists invasion was... More

We, two families of 8 adults and 2 children, stayed at the Pingyao Harmony Guesthouse for two nights. And it was wonderful! A respite from the big western-style hotels we stayed on during the rest of our trip. The Guesthouse is housed in a traditional courtyard complex in the middle of the hustle and bustle of ancient Pingyao. Instead of... More

Arrived from Beijing West by train,we phoned Harmony before to arrange a pick up. As the high speed train stations are along way out,we were told that we would have to pay(free pick up is advertised) we agreed to this. But, when we arrived there was no pick up waiting for us. Luckily,we were told that a bus that was... More

The room was relatively clean with air con, TV and comfy bed, the bathroom was clean and the shower was hot. There was a good hotel reception/social area. The guesthouse matches the city as historic and authentic with a great entrance and courtyard. You can book tours and tickets with the help of the staff, most of which speak very... More
