Dejuyuan Folk-style Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 400 Pingyao County B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 January 2011

I stayed there only one night and it seems that no member of the staff minds taking care of individual travellers, preferring foreign groups coming in this guesthouse from other locations for having lunch or dinner.
Building and rooms are nice, except bathrooms, but the floor in the room quickly gives feet a blackish color...
Breakfast is quite good.
Staff is rude and not helpfull. Forget it if travelling alone or small group.

perfect location, near the border of the pedestrian zone on a veri lively street
very cozy. Personnel nice, quick services, able to speak English.
The room was wonderful, nice traditional furniture, quiet with good air conditioning. No refrigerator; TV but only chinese channels
Bathroom very small, shower goes on the floor
the door opens on the courtyard where you could have your mels
very good food - apparently one of the best in town

The hotel was fully booked when I enquried, so I booked Tian Yuan Kui, the owner remember my booking, and emailed me when there was room due to lots of the cancellation of the swine flue.

I did pay a visit to the hotel, the owner showed me room which she was going to put me ( a family of 4), it was a very spacious, two bedroom with 2 huge bed, a classical chinese living room in the middle, for 400 yuan. We are too lazy to move with our open luggage from Tian yuan Kui, the owner is very graceful and personable. The room is better than Tian yuan Kui for 450 yuan, The hotel is the same quality as Tian Yuan Kui slightly cheaper and less well known in the west street, Tian Yuan Kui locates at most expensive street in Pinyao.

We ate in the resutrant that night, and the food is good, price is fair.

I wil surely stay here next time when I visit pinyao.

Stayed: June 2009, travelled with family

This hotel is quite famous among tourists. Situated in the centre of the ancient city of Ping Yao it is very easy to walk in any direction and come back by foot. Rooms have a hydrolic heating which was very nice as temperature drops to +10C. We spent 2 nights there. Staff and owners are very helpful. We ordered train tickets on the day we arrived and get them upon departure. Food is good at local restaurant - try fried eggplants.
Very nice place I recommend to stay there.

* For those who never travelled by train in China - try to travel by plane. Trains between small towns are quite old and dirty. People allowed to smoke in trains plus huge queues before train stations turns a journey to a nightmare.

I immediately loved it. The service was really good (they speak good enough English), the food was excellent, and the building, what can I say but unique. Imagine, a real Siheyuan, it was like sleeping in history (with all the modern acomodation: AC / Wi-Fi etc.) I have done a 1 month tour in China, and that place was from far the best. So don’t miss it!

A small courtyard hotel in traditional style on one of the main streets in Pingyao. Facilities may be limited but the character more than makes up for that. Staff friendly and helpful with reasonable English. Food good. Recommended if you want to experience China rather than stop in a tourist bubble.

A rare opportunity to stay in a beautifully preserved and partly modernised hotel in the middle of an ancient city. Rooms are spotless, air cond, western w.c. with shower over a unique timber tub which can be plugged like a bath. A charming 2 story building with entry via 2 central couryards from the main street. Excellent food for dinner and breakfast in the restaurant at the entrance. We (3 couples) sat outside our rooms after dinner and drank several cold beers (cheap) in the warm summer night before retireing to our rooms for a peaceful nights sleep with no noise at all.
Not the best hotel in the world , but definately a magical and rare experience not to be missed. We loved it and would stay there again.
