Great location Lovely and clean staff very helpful But very noisey on ground floor because next to reception other than that though I would recommend this hotel Nice comfy bed. Breakfast is dear and not much left if not very early but great places to eat very close so would do that instead

This hotel is a five minute drive to the old city of Pingyao (10 yuan taxi ride) no need to drag your luggages across the old town, nice restaurant with English menu and pictures! One waitress can speak good English! One of the lady manager can also speak English and can help you! Convenient laundry service and ATM in the lobby! Car service for nearby attractions(uploaded picture)

Comfortable room - met all our needs. Bed firm - usual for China.
Didn't like glass wall between en suite and room- no privacy!
Staff spoke virtually no English but they were very friendly,polite, honest and they went out of their way to help us wherever they could.
Steamed veg ordered from in room service was tasty but chicken dish was mostly gristle.
Glad we stayed outside Pingyou main walls - found everyone inside walls on a mission to cheat the tourist!

While staying inside the walled old city has its charm- if confort is a must- stay outside the walls (15' minutes walk to the old city ) in a modern hotel ran by a professional hotel management company (Jianguo Hotels)

Very new hotel (2 years) - very decent beds and modern bathroom- suprisingly good breakfast- service attitude of the staff (trained as per Jianguo standards) Value for money!
Traveling extensively in China on business one get's to know what to expect from Jianguo hotels (as a Chinese hotel management company they stand out over their local competitors and nearly reach western standards)
The old city has some charming hotels but the beds are incredibly hard- sanitary conditions so/so. Mostly chinese breakfast (except if you want to splurge in the Jin's Residence (not value for money because too expensive- you expect more for 250 usd ++)

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights last week when visiting Pingyao. I think this is a much better option than the motels inside the old city of Pingyao.

Location: Good location. While outside the old Pingyao city walls, it is within reasonable walking distance to the old city (15 - 20 mins walk) or you can catch a local bike that looks like a golf cart to get there if you prefer not to walk. This hotel seems to be very famous and high class in the eyes of the locals, everyone appears to know about this hotel once you mentioned the name. The motels inside the old city wall are much cheaper but they may not be a good choice if you arrive by train in the evening and have to catch a cab from the train station to the old city and then take your baggages and walk all the way to your motel (note: inside the walls, cars are only allowed for a very short distance with road blocks near the entrance of the village. Then you have to walk to the centre of the town.

Staffs (Front desk, porter and the older man that looks after the carpark): All very friendly and professional. They give very good advice in travelling and provide good street direction. The porter even walked my brother-in-law to a local bank to do currency exchange as he worries that my brother-in-law may not be able to find the place - it's quite a few big blocks away from the hotel.

Room: Very clean and spacious. Bed is very comfortable. You also have a choice of different pillows such as lavender, wheat, herbs etc.

Breakfast: Breakfast was yummy and the range of selection is pretty good. They cook noodles on the spot and also have a chef making fried eggs at the counter. My fussy Uncle asked for 5 fried egg whites only and the chef happily cook that for him. They have both Chinese and Western breakfast in the buffet.

Only negative is the noise from the street. This hotel in fact is not quite close to the main road but facing a park. Due to lack of tall buildings there, the noise from the main road is quite notable. In Pingyao, drivers of cars/bikes/bicycles put their horns on all the time as warning that they are coming. Also fire crackers are used all the time. So I would recommend travellers to request for a room facing the back and not the front to avoid the noise.
