Cute, quaint courtyard. We got complimentary pick up service from the train station to the hostel and arrived quite early. Was told that our room will not be ready in another 2-3 hours since we got here before our check in time. Front desk lady was nice enough to give us a room to rest until our room is ready....

The staff is very friendly, helpfull and speaks English very well. The hotel (located in the old city) has a beautiful courtyard where you can sit the whole day. In the evening, there were some mosquitoes, but the owner gave us a burning thingy (i never saw it before) that kept them away, very nice! We stayed in a standard...

We stayed 3 nights. Service from the staff is great and the courtyard is very nice. A great place just to hang around and relax. But, the room is not cleaned everyday and since Pingyao is very dusty, it left the room very dirty. The bathroom wasn't cleaned at all. We weren't given clean towels the second day. The toilet...

I just returned from China for 3 weeks and stayed here for 1 night. The pictures posted on the hotel website don't look like the hotel where we stayed. I thought I was in the wrong place. I had my ipad and pulled up the hotel pictures showing a beautiful 1 story building and also a 2 story building. When...

As others have noted, this is a beautiful guesthouse - very inviting courtyard, lovely rooms, etc. We reserved through booking.com and, because we were traveling during a holiday, noted that the rates changed during our stay. We paid the agreed amount for our rooms when we arrived. As we were getting ready to leave 3 days later, the owner ran...

Stepping into this Inn is like stepping through a portal into another world. Outside was noisy, dusty, hot - then one steps over a high ledge into a garden of date trees, birds singing, carved doors and windows. We were astounded. The proprietress offered us a bowl of fresh dates. Our traditional and lovely rooms included a wall to wall...

We stayed 2 nights at the Cheng Jia. Having arrived at Pingyao station around 8am we walked the long way round (instead of the North Gate entrance) and upon arrival found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I had read reviews and seen pictures but was not sure we were in the right place but as soon as...

We had a great stay at Cheng Jia. The hotel is set in a beautiful traditional courtyard home, with a central courtyard surrounded by small traditional rooms that have all of the basic amenities you'd expect and a traditional kang bed. The staff were great, and the hotel was very calm and peaceful. It's just inside the north gate, and...

I can't say our experience at Pingyao Cheng Jia Hotel was without incident. Our room lost electricity twice and the water went out once during during our two night stay. Our first morning we arrived for breakfast at 9:15am only to be told that breakfast ended at 8:30am, which we thought was very early. At another hotel these experiences would...

We stayed here for one night with our 3 daughters. It is so atmospheric and so comfortable. Our girls stayed in one room- the bed was so enormous that they shared without complaint! The courtyard is peaceful, the staff are friendly and helpful. The rate included a simple breakfast as well as tea whenever you wanted it. From the guesthouse...

“Try to have a room not next to reception. Also, all rooms face onto the courtyard. If there is a noisy (inconsiderate) group in the courtyard you will hear them. In good weather, breakfast is served in the courtyard, you will hear people talking. It did not bother us particularly.”
