10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved everything! The location is excellent, the hotel is amazingly beautiful and clean with ancient style furniture and design. It is a real gem. Breakfast is in the price and everything was so cheap compared to the value they provide. I wish to go back to this hotel. They also gave us free transport to the train station. Amazing! And just very beautiful! The receptionists are very helpful, they mostly do not speak English, but use their translating machine very very well! So everything was clear and understandable, and we had fun because of the funny way of the communication.
Cons: I liked everything and wish to go back! They should write out the name of the hotel onto the facade in English. It would be easier to find.

Pros: Superb location and great room. Excellent shower, lots of character, fresh fruit in room, good heating and a fridge. Staff very nice and helpful.
Cons: Staff spoke no English, but we communicated fine via a translator. Bed was a little hard. I was originally given a different room from the one I booked - one which appeared to be a downgrade = with no explanation. This was eventually sorted out and I ended up choosing a business kang, which was beautiful - much nicer than either the room I had originally booked or the one they initially put me in. And it was cheaper.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The decoration of the entire place is beautiful. The breakfast was served just for us before the scheduled times because we had to keave before. They organized a taxi from the hotel for us as well.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The host was super friendly. Even though she can't really talk English, we were able to communicate with the youdao translator. We put some clothes to air over night on a seat and she put them on a hanger for us. She arranged a daytrip to the Zhangbi castle and MianShan mountains, with a private driver for us and helped us set up our WeChat account.
Cons: Kinda nothing. Only if you would prefer the courtyard to look as nice as the other big hotels. But, who cares... you're there to look at the village not at the place you're staying.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: A cozy room in the traditional Chinese building. Stuff was really nice and helpful :)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had a private double room and the bed was HUGH. The location was great, in the ancient city just outside of the really touristic area. The host was very kind, easy to communicate with since she has a translation app. Helped us on the way back to find the bus. Tip: if you come by train and arrive on the Pinyaogucheng station, you can simply get the 108 bus and get off at the hospital. From there it will be a 15-20 minute walk. Only 1 yuan instead of a (much more expensive) taxi.
Cons: It was hard to balance the hot and cold water in the shower, so it was quite chilly or burning hot
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The landlady does not speak English at all but she was really friendly. When she noticed that I could speak a bit of Chinese, she improvised herself as a teacher. This inn does not look like much but I really liked it. Each room is directly linked to the outside courtyard.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room is really big and the bed super comfortable. The owner doesn't speak English but it's pretty easy to communicate thanks to her "translate app". She gave us good tips about food in Pingyao, and wrote the Chinese names of some dish on a paper to make it easy to find them for us. She and her family live there, so basically it's a homestay in a beautiful traditional house.
Cons: It's difficult to mix hot and cold water. Basically you can have a hot shower or a cold one :)

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The courtyard.
Cons: No common area. Smelled quite bad. You have to get into the hostel through a restaurant. Nobody at reception at night. People were rude specially the ones on the restaurant. Only one person at the cafe was nice to me. They take ages to reply emails. The town looks so over-refurbished that looks fake.
8.3 Excellent

Shops, restaurants, everything is in the street. Great atmosphere with red lanterns, wooden works, nice courtyard. Asian breakfast was included. Friendly staff, did not speak much English. Last but not least: soft western style matrass in our double room! (be aware that de Kang beds in other rooms are hard).

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Excellent staff, relaxed vibe, perfect location and great food being served at the restaurant.
Cons: If I had to come up with any con it'd be the hard bed, but I guess that's just very China-like!
8.8 Excellent

The reception staff helped arranged very good transfer to our day-trip outside Pingyao.
Cons: The room is simple, the shower doesn't have a curtain or a glass wall so the entire bathroom floor gets wet every time. Not a lot of shelf space around the sink. The room lighting is a little problematic as it doesn't offer a reading lamp.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The guest house is inside the ancient city, close to many of the 'tourist attractions. There is no requirement to purchase entrance ticket to enter the ancient city. Entrance ticket is only required for going into 'tourist attractions' in the ancient city. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Some good local food were served by the guest house. A lot of foreign guests.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really good situated in the middle of the oldtown, but far enough from the hurly-burly. Our room was clean, comfortable and wonderful decorated.

The room was really well suited for our family (3 children) and our hosts were very helpful and benevolent. Definitely 5 stars for us.
Cons: Nothing.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was very good, cooked to order. To make a change from local food we took the Western breakfast and it was excellent.
Cons: We were there out of season and the outside space looked very scruffy, the furniture was very old and damaged. I'm sure in season it would look very pretty.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: This was a lovely place to stay during our visit to Pingyao. It's a short walk to just about everything and has a very authentic flavor. They were very accommodating and provided good information on what to see and do. Excellent value for a pleasant stay.
Cons: As with many hotels in China, the beds are very hard. However, they do provide sufficient bedding and we fit comfortably in the small suite.
5.4 Okay
Cons: this is a different experience. People at this hotel are very nice. Compared what they charge and the facilities, it is on the pricey side. E. G. Coffee @30rmb in house is more than Starbucks and no fresh milk. Bed is too hard. Instruction for finding the place confusing. If you want a little Inn experience with traditional lifestyle, this place is set up in a courtyard.

Pros: I stayed 3 nights in this hotel in November. An unparalleled charm! This is an authentic historic house, restored to a minimum and just enough. We are here at the antipodes of these artificial restorations that one finds in some other hotels that want to give themselves a traditional character. No false note here to preserve the character of the entire establishment. The staff is of a remarkable kindness and very helpfull; the restaurant is very correct. Excellent location: 2-3 minutes from the main points of interest of Pingyao. Very very calm. The rooms are very different from each other. Look at the pictures on the site. They correspond to reality. Wifi works very well. It was a wonderfull experience.
9.2 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Located in a historical house, the hotel owner shows a great concern over the protection of the building. He clearly has decided to sacrifice a bit of the comfort in its interior decoration in order to keep the authenticity of the house. No luxury but simple and natural. Very friendly staff.

6.7 Good
Pros: Proximity to the ancient city, about a 10 minute walk. Nice local restaurants just down the street with good food at great value.
Cons: But difficult to find at first as you enter through an alleyway Adjacent to a main road, so the taxi driver had to ring for us to get accurate directions. More of a private room in a house than a Hostel.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location: very convenient around 800m from the train station, right next to a gas station. Outside the wall of the ancient city in a kinda unappealing (but safe) area. The north tower of the wall is around 900m away. It may be really difficult to locate since the sign is in Chinese only, so I leave you a pic of the entrance. Personnel: I booked at the last minute and arrived around midnight when the entrance was already closed. I had to phone call the owner and a lady kindly came to open the door. They don't speak much English but I used the translator app to say a couple of key phrases: 'booking tonight' and 'open door' and that served. I strongly recommend you arrive earlier though. Free baggage storage: since I only spent that night there, they let me leave my baggage when I checked out so I could go touring.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The owner was super nice and we could check in early. The bed was very comfy.
Cons: The hotel self is a bit hard to find. Chinese Google maps and Google maps don't show it properly. Basically it is just to the right of the tankstation through a small door with no 55 on it. The shower is not very hot, but there is a heating lamp that makes up for it.
7.5 Good

Pros: close to the restaurant street. 10min on foot from the railway, less from the bus stand. 15min from the north gate
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very accommodating owner, waited for us way past midnight for check-in. To find it: turn left on the main road coming out of Pingyao (slow) train station. Walk along this main road, on the right you will see city walls, on the right pass a petrol station. It is a few doors down from the petrol station, neon lit door with number 55 on it. Clean private room with a bathroom, quiet, close to city walls. All we needed!
7.5 Good
Cons: Doubles and twins were ok for the price. Triples and quadruples not at all (too small and with no actual beds..)
