Staying at this hotel is like staying with a local Chinese family. Rooms are not luxurious at all but they are clean and have the character of a real Chinese courtyard home. You feel like you are stepping back in time. The family that runs this place is delightful and treated us with great hospitality, as if we were guests...

Stayed for one night with my wife. We were collected from Pingyao High Speed train station by a driver arranged by the hotel for 30RMB but he touted for some extra business and two more people came in the knackered mini bus (we thought we were getting a private driver and they were dropped off first too). Check in was...

In a place as difficult as China to manage in English, we found in this hotel the kindest person in the world. we had a problem with train tickets, He dedicated us a lot of time booking new tickets, finding the right timetables, arranging everything to make things easy for us. He gave us his email just in case we...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

“Try to have a room not next to reception. Also, all rooms face onto the courtyard. If there is a noisy (inconsiderate) group in the courtyard you will hear them. In good weather, breakfast is served in the courtyard, you will hear people talking. It did not bother us particularly.”
