Any trip to Pingyao should include a visit to the Ri Shengchang Money Exchange Museum and a stay at the Tian Yuan Kui Guesthouse. The Tian Yuan Kui Guesthouse, which is in the heart of the old city, was built in 1791. During the Jin & Shang Dynasties it was a prominent area enjoying an economic boom, and it is popular again today. On entering the Tian Yuan Kui Guesthouse you will be swept back in time. The classic architecture, courtyards, stone lion carvings, Ming & Qing style furniture, red lanterns and fragrant tea by candlelight, all adding to the memorable experience. At the same time, modern facilities, such as colour TV, air conditioning and clean, tidy washrooms with western-style toilets, are provided.

"Size seemed similar in three rooms booked, all had the basics."
"inspect the room first before accepting and request a change if needed, as the rooms are all shapes and sizes."
"Rooms are unique, so it might be worth asking to see a few before settling on one. Some have canopy beds and some have kangs."
