If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not it. But if you're looking for a beautiful 5 star Chinese experience, then stay here. The location in the old city is terrific, the hotel itself is the sort of place people pay to go in and have a look at, with actual historic rooms and courtyards. The standard...

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in this very charming "old world" hotel. We found the staff to be so very welcoming and helpful from the time we arrived to when we left. The rooms had lots of character and were clean and quite well maintained. The bathroom was interesting, well laid out for such a tiny...

This hotel is so beautiful, the buildings take your breath away. There are excellent friendly staff who will go out of their way for you. They don't speak much English, but go out of their way to understand and help. Pingyao can get very busy and noisy and the hotel's courtyards and restaurant were a haven of peace and quiet....

Very much in keeping with the traditional ambience of the town. Nice, albeit a bit small, rooms set around a set of courtyards. Served by a high quality restaurant which served lovely breakfasts and dinners. Thoughtful and attentive staff.

This is a lovely place very much in keeping with the heritage of an ancient city. Located very close to the main retail and dining area. Staff were friendly and helpful. We took a two-bedroom place and it was very comfortable for a family of four. While I liked everything about this hotel, including the restaurant, I felt that for...

We stayed in a standard double room. Cozy and definitely authentic- shower didn't drain particularly well. We were lucky to be moved up to a superior room on the second night because they had a space- that room was great, up on the second level room #26 I think. Staff were lovely and the yide is close to the centre...
