Pingyao, Yunjincheng Hotel
Distant Journeys rating
A particularly unique and exciting accommodation, The Pingyao Yunjincheng Hotel boasts an enviable location on West Avenue. Here, your hotel sits near the Ancient City Wall and the entrance to many Mingqing Street attractions.

Pingyao Yunjincheng Hotel is an ancient building which was once two old houses with courtyards on both sides of the street. Each house belonged to a rich family who beautifully converted their homes into an exceptional boutique hotel. The courtyards remain, with each of the guestrooms dotted around them. Almost as if you were stepping into a museum, every area of the hotel – the courtyards, the lobby and the guestrooms – has magically retained the atmosphere of the old times. Some describe staying at Yunjincheng Hotel as being transported back to the Tang period. Still, every guestroom offers all the modern facilities you need for a comfortable stay. While its lively location ensures you’re close to the hustle and bustle of Pingyo’s main area, inside the hotel and within its grounds remain remarkably serene and peaceful.
