Within the ancient walls of Pingyao, there isn't a better guesthouse than the Harmony Guesthouse! We were established 50 years ago: the first guesthouse to be established on the ancient south street. Located 100 meter's from the city's south gate, the building was first built in the Ming dynasty, and contains 30 rooms offering a wide range of choice. Keeping to the original Ming dynasty design, this is one of the best 3* guesthouses in Pingyao.

All the rooms have a bathroom、TV, air conditioning, power sockets and 24 hr hot water, as well as traditional Chinese 'Kang' beds and decoration. We also have Wifi internet access, payphones, and massage and acupuncture!

-Friendly english-speaking staff

-High quality service

-One big international family!

All of the staff speak English in this family run hostel. You can meet other travellers over a cold beer and traditional local home-cooked Chinese dishes or if you prefer Western food! At night the courtyard is lit with sky lanterns which creates an cozy atmosphere to relax and unwind after a long day of sightseeing. We can also book train tickets to a wide variety of destinations and we also offer tours to sights in the city and beyond, such as the famous Wang's Family Courtyard and the Zhang Bi with its underground tunnels.
Prices are per person per night.
