My wife and I stayed in this marvelous hotel within the Ancient walled City of Pingyao. The staff were exceedingly gracious in service and even helped translate for us with some local teenage girls who wanted to have their picture taken with Westerners. The room was very nice and we had fresh honey soaked dates when returning from our day’s exploring. Breakfast (included in our tour) was expansive and was off a menu and not a buffet – the food both Chinese & European was excellent. We ate dinner one evening and the food and service were outstanding. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
