Although it's not usually at the top of the must-see list for many travelers, Pingyao is often said to be many backpackers favorite place in China once they arrive. For some reason, Pingyao just doesn't have the publicity of other major Chinese destinations, even though it should. The large Old Town area is enclosed within ancient walls, and houses several large towers within it. A maze of old buildings and courtyards lives inside these walls, all filled with shops, restaurants, hotels, and more. The atmosphere is buzzing with culture, history, and friendly locals and tourists alike. Don't miss it!

The hostels below are all varied in their personality and vibe. Find the one that's right for you before booking, and then have a great trip!

An elegant and quiet hotel for couples, families, and solo travelers

Private Room from $23.74
NO.1 Duan Lane West Street, Pingyao
Owned by the same folks as the Harmony Backpacker Guesthouse, the Harmony Hotel provides private rooms and some dorm beds in a great location in the center of Old Town, set around (no surprise here) a very ornate courtyard. The courtyard itself is worth the price of staying here, as it is almost like staying inside an ancient Chinese museum. The prices here are higher than at the neighboring Guesthouse, though.

Private rooms come in a variety of sizes and prices, all with ensuite bathrooms. Many have Kang style beds, the traditional beds of the area which are quite large and comfortable. Modern bathroom facilities make this option very comfortable. TVs are also available.

Meals and drinks are served at the restaurant, which is also a great place to mingle and meet other guests. Both western and Chinese food is served. The staff is very friendly, and can book tours and onward transportation. Wi-Fi, laundry, air conditioning, hot water, books and games, and more are on the list of amenities.

Guests leaving reviews give this hotel high marks for the ambience, the food, the cleanliness, and the location. The staff is said to be very very friendly as well.
