Where to stay in Pingyao County

Many visitors to Pingyao County consider staying in one of the hotels and hostels located within the city walls to get the authentic experience. The converted Ming and Qing dynasty buildings located on the main roads--in particular, the pedestrianized street leading east to west through town--house some luxurious options, with onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Take a peak at the side streets in the old city for some more budget-friendly hotels, as well as the odd hostel with dormitory-style rooms.
