Traditional, charming with modern touches
Good heating, excellent service, well-maintained
It was the perfect combination of traditional and modern. We loved the traditional hutong feel, yet the owners really made an effort to make sure we were well-cared for. We felt like staying forever. Can't wait to go back again. :)

A look into the Middle Kingdom.
Ancient walled city courtyard location
If you want to feel what China was like during the Middle Kingdom in a courtyard home this is the place to stay.All amenities have been upgraded to give the travelers a confortable experience.Location is right in the heart of the ancient walled city that is beautifully preserved. Staff are all very friendly and speak some English.Connie is especially helpful. Restaurant has the best authentic Shanxi food in all of Pingyao.

Disappointed by some staff who were very rude
good location, lovely building, good food
We were very disappointed with the way we were treated by some rude staff members, who never smiled and were not polite. One in particular was very rude to my wife which upset her. The staff member for no apparent reason when we were paying our bill, looked my wife up and down with a look of disgust on her face and said something in chinese, which she knew we would not understand. When we asked her what she had said, she shook her head and said 'nothing'! I would advise people to stay in another hotel where staff are friendlier and probably a lot cheaper! Having said this one staff member was friendly.

Centrally located hotel with traditional flavour
Friendly service
Located in the center of the Ancient city of Pingyao, everything is within walking distance saving alot of transport and having a variety of shops around you. The owner of hotel is extremely friendly and she personally make you feel at home with her attention and care. Dinner was good as they served up traditional cuisine which is a hassle to find in this part of the city

Great hotel in Datong!
Clean, good location, affordable!
The room was clean and well equipped with everything you need...and a humidifier, books to read...extra pillows and blankets. Free wifi. We got a great rate which included breakfast. I would definitely stay there again!

Hotel traditionnel (et rustique)
Les +: la situation dans la rue principale de Pingyao, le restaurant de l'hotel ainsi que "le petit resto" qu'ils gerent également
Les -: la salle de bain de la taille d'une cabine de douche avec un lavabo, les toilettes et la douche (en gros, quand on se douche, toute la salle de bain est trempée du sol au plafond) Nous avons été assez surpris par cette petite ville. En pleine journée, elle est très très touristique et les tours opérateurs déversent des flots de touristes chinois à coup de haut parleur. Et le soir, la ville est limite déserte.
