We arrived in Pingyao on the overnight train from Xi'an at 6 in the morning. We walked to the guesthouse, enjoying the quiet of the city. Of course I didn't expect our room to be ready at that early hour (and it wasn't), but thought we would drop off our bags anyhow.
Upon entering, the lovely young attendant offered us a temporary room where we could wash up and rest a bit, and said that breakfast would be offered a bit later on. Our room, with two big beds and some other furniture, located on the second floor, was available at noon.
The friendliness of the owners and staff at this guesthouse and their genuine care for their visitors was so apparent. The whole place just had such a nice, warm cozy feel to it. Our air conditioned room was very comfy and quiet and we slept well and enjoyed nice hot showers. The food served was amazingly good, we had two of our best meals in China there and wished that we were staying for more days so that we could try more of their choices. They have an awesome expresso bar with great coffee.
On our walk down South Street we noticed a De Ju Yuan restaurant, and when asking the guesthouse owner about this, she said yes it was her sister's restaurant. So I am sure that the cooking there would be just as tasty.
Highly recommended. I booked a superior room, using Agoda.
