        Great staff”

        Pros: staff (speaking english) very helpful, skillfull, with much disponibility. Good situation in the old city, quiet place, pretty good restaurant for China. Comfortable bed. Cons: small room, without much light but it’s the price to pay to be in a typical house of the Ming period. The hotel is not responsible for it but Pingyao is suffering from mass tourism and the invasion of noisy groups; it is invaded by ‘taxis’ used by people too lazy to walk. The cars, driving fast and without consideration for those who walk, should be forbidden in the old city...

        Historical hotel ”

        Staff, Room and Courtyard

        More than 350years old building. It has been beautifully converted. Not the standard black and red buildings like other hotels in town. They retained so many original features. During my stay, the staff were friendly and food were good. The location is slightly out from main street, but still located inside the walled town. I personally preferred this as away from noisy traffics. Go for Room 26 which is deluxe at roof top.

        Like stepping back into ancient China!”

        Extremely helpful staff, location & large bed

        The hotel is absolutely stunning - it really is like stepping back into ancient China. We were given a free upgrade as my husband was a little too tall for the regular bedding. The room was extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished in the traditional Chinese style. Photos don't do it justice. Ample heating and hot water, excellent wifi connection. The location is fantastic as it is just off the main street (a 1 min walk). The hotel restaurant is also magnificent - we now regret not eating there. The staff were incredibly helpful - they allowed us to check in again (after we checked out early in the morning) when our train times were mixed up, and even called our hotel in Beijing to notify them of our travel changes. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

        Old world ambience”

        Great ambience with red lanterns at night, thoughtful owner with attention to detail, well-conserved property

        Train arrived in wee hours of morning and had to wake up hotel owner at 5:30 a.m. Paid extra RMB100 for a double room as single room was still occupied and managed to catch a little snooze. The double room for my 1st night is much nicer as the single room for my 2nd night was double storied which meant scaling the steep steps for a pee at night. As solo traveller, I was much obliged that owner (Mrs Chen) was so kind as to link up with the regular travel company owner to charge me a much reduced rate for a ride to Qiao Family Courtyard House 40km away as the travel company owner was heading in that direction for a personal errand. That was mighty nice of Mrs Chen. Food at hotel's restaurant was delicious but a bit pricey for this small town.

        Location, clean, comfortable

        Pingyao is a lovely rustic city, and this hotel just adds up to it. The rooms and very simple yet very comfortable. The staff speaks one of the best English I heard in all china-standard. And the restaurant is very pleasant and has a delicious hot chocolate! Would definitely recommend (the hotel and the chocolate)!

        A highlight of our trip”

        Character, comfort, friendly staff, restaurant and value

        We booked based on the great ratings on agoda and trip adviser and were not disappointed. This is a traditional courtyard house in Pingyao and the rooms are small but full of character and surprisingly comfortable. Beds are on traditional brick bases but the mattresses end up being softer and more comfortable than most of the western style hotels we stayed in in China. They have a great restaurant for all meals and staff are very friendly, we were disappointed to leave and wished we'd planned another day there.

        location, history, free train pickup/drop off

        a great 5 star hotel. Beautiful room, facilities and services. Location not so good for wandering at the end of the day. Limited dining options in the area. Renovated city walls and town will be worth visiting when finished and part of this is not so far from the hotel. Taxis to station not expensive and can do in 20 mins depending on the traffic. Staff very helpful with booking train tickets but procedures are not clearly explained and difficult for travellers i.e train booking requested 3 days ahead but only arrive within an hour of the departure and then only as handwritten notes. All was well though.

        A quaint but comfortable establishment”

        It is the quaintest hotel we have ever stayed at. It is a very old building that has been modified and renovated into an hotel. Lovely outside courtyards for relaxing. The rooms are comfortable with enormous beds. The bathroom is basic but adequate. In a quiet area of the city but within walking distance of most places. The restaurant is good for dinner but disappointed with breakfast which was Western based with little Chinese. The staff were friendly and very helpful especially Ju Li. Varies activities and transport can be organised by staff

        Amazing location with exceptional staff”

        After a tough day of travelling to pingyao the staff at the yide hotel turned our day around. The front desk staff were so accommodating allowing us to review which room we would prefer before settling in. We asked for food recommendations and the staff weren't lying when they said the hotel restaurant was delicious. It was amazing, tasty, fresh and cheap!! Having an early train out the staff showed us how to open the gate and access the hotel prior to opening. They arranged a private car pick up from the hotel straight to the train station. The rooms have a fantastic history and authentic feel to them. Couldn't recommend this place any higher - go visit!!

        I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It occupies a stunning old courtyard house on a side street in the old city. Just sitting in the courtyard with a cold beer was a joy. Rooms are simple but beautifully clean and comfortable. Staff could not have been more helpful and the restaurant was excellent both for breakfast and dinner.

        Everything is excellent. Pick us up a the railway station on time. Location is good, walking distance to most places of interest. Staff is polite, helpful and patient. The 300-year old property is well maintained. Room and toilet are clean. They upgraded us to a suite, probably because they knew it was my birthday and even gave me a complimentary birthday cake. It makes our stay a memorable one. The only regret was that we didn't really try the restaurant (highly recommended by other Travelers) because we hung out late on both nights and it closes at 10pm. A definite recommendation from us.

The rooms are tastefully decorated with genuine antique furnishings and the hotel's bar/dining area is a huge timbered hall, candle-lit in the evenings, a real sight to behold.

        It was lovely staying in Pingyao Yide Hotel. I called in 1 day before to arrange airport pickup. The staff was very helpful and the driver came waited for me promptly at the airport holding a paper with my name. The charge of this service is just the same as taking a taxi from the airport. So it was more than a reasonable price i have paid, and i don't need to worry over unable to communicate with local drivers. Yide hotel is a lovely heritage house converted into guest house. the staff took me for a short walk and explain to me how each room used function back in those old days. She finally took me into my room and it was very clean with authentic ancient chinese furniture and design.

        Our stay at this hotel was very nice. We (a couple) travelled with our 16 year old nephew. The 3 of us enjoyed it. It is in an old family mansion and it is beautifully decorated without being over-decorated. It looks authentic, and this is not often the case in China where things are over-decorated and look tacky. The food in the hotel is very good, diner and breakfast. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
