Jing's Residence Pingyao

Hotel in Pingyao
Image by Booking.com

Jing’s is a soothing blend of old Pingyao and modern flair that’s aimed at sophisticated, upmarket travellers. At 270 years old, the former home of a Qing dynasty silk merchant is sleek and well finished with polished service from the English-speaking staff. The themed courtyards are picture-perfect, rooms are elegant and the vast upstairs suites have views over Pingyao’s rooftops.

Jing's offers cooking classes in Shanxi cuisine, moon cake–making and traditional handicraft in Mandarin with English interpretation. After a day of sightseeing, guests can relax at the super-hushed upstairs bar or the library. There are only 14 rooms and suites, so it’s essential to book ahead.
