    We stayed in this marvelous hotel within the Ancient walled City of Pingyao. The staff were exceedingly gracious in service. The room was very nice. The owner gave me map and introduced us about Pingyao scenic spots and local food. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    I absolutely loved this hotel. The rooms are simple but well furnished, extremely clean. The public spaces are the same. The location of the hotel is also fabulous. Trainstation pickup check in etc. Hotel Manager did a great job. Rooms are nice but very different. We planned our trip to Pingyao initially because of Ping's. The hotel is a must for any design/architecture buff.

    Fantastic stay! Tom was so helpful and the atmosphere of the place was amazing. Few spiders but can’t get too worried about that when you realise how old the building is!! Excellent value for money. Tom just puts you in a position where he tries to make you upgrade rooms. We were offered a room just opposite his office which was fine but then showed an upgrade, decided not to take it and then got moved to a nicer room anyway free of charge. Think this might be a standard sales move!

    Had a pleasant stay and we recommended it. The manager, Tom, spoke very good English, was very helpful and he gave us a map of the town. Our en-suite bedroom was clean with lovely traditional Chinese furniture. Bathroom was a bit small, but towels/free toiletries provided. High speed railway station is 15 km from the old town, we appreciated very much the pick up from the station (40 Yuan). Plenty of restaurants nearby and walking distance to all the tourist attractions.

    The location of this hostel is perfect; right down the street from the main markets. We stayed in a private room, and it was comfortable. The beds were harder than I like but still good. The hostel itself is very charming, right in the middle of an ancient courtyard. The staff are helpful and very nice. My only complaint is that the bathroom smelt so bad of sewage we didn't even want to go in to take a shower and we also found fake eyelashes on bathroom wall. Otherwise everything else was good.

    We visited early January, the courtyard house is indeed ancient looking. When we arrived our room was not ready so we got offered an "upgrade" to a bigger room for 10CNY. The room was dusty and the heating system locked so that the room wouldn't be warmer than 14C . The place is good value for money, the manager Tom speaks english and was helpful but the service of the rest of the staff could improve. If you come from the high speed train station, their pick up service costs 40CNY.
