Hotel Facilities & Highlights
Your Host & The Team
“Ping Yao - one of the most intriguing UNESCO world heritage town- is the only surviving walled city from the Ming and Qing dynasty in Chinese history. Walking around the old town is like stepping into ancient China where local people live the same way for centuries... City planning was done 1500 years ago and remains the same today. Jing's Residence is a restored courtyard residence built 260 years ago, hidden within the city walls.
The house was originally the shop and home of a silk merchant during the Qing Dynasty. Renovated by the famous architect Antonia Ocha, the property combines today the original courtyards with some contemporary touches in the rooms. We take a genuine pleasure in welcoming guests to experience not only a beautiful and comfortable house, but also the charm and the heritage of our History, just like if we were offering a travel back through time. As a member of Secret Retreats, Jing's Residence is more than a hotel, it is a true a journey through a glorious past.”
