Pingyao Jing’s Residence

Jing’s Residence, which is a courtyard-style structure, is the former home of an affluent silk merchant in the Qing Dynasty. Located at the East Avenue of the ancient town, the old residence lies in the heart of the town and stands next to the historic site of the earliest security company in Northern China in the past. Jing’s Residence consists of four independent, but interlinked yards of various sizes, which is a representation of the uniqueness of folk residences in ancient Northern China. Naturally interlinked by winding paths paved with traditional black bricks, these yards are dotted with verdant bamboos, trickling waters and white marble staircases. After the night falls, the dazzling lights would make you feel as if were back to the old days. In this juncture, it seems that the idea of time is nonexistent.

The front door of Jing’s Residence faces East Avenue, which is the main entrance to the yard. There, you will be ushered in by waiters/waitresses, who will help you check in and show you the way to your rooms. This practice is aimed at providing you with personalized and meticulous services. The lobby of the hotel is furnished with a fireplace, and a refined restaurant that is next to the lobby. The floor above the lobby is furnished with a mini bar featuring a warm ambience as well as a library, where you are free to sit on the sofas watching movies or surfing the Internet. The flames of the fireplace add to a pleasant atmosphere, providing you with an ideal place for receiving guests and conducting business affairs. After a day’s tour in the ancient town, Jing’s Residence is a perfect choice for relaxation.

The hotels bedrooms and deluxe suites are all uniquely designed and fully demonstrate the extraordinary beauty of the residence. Inheriting the traditional architectural style of ancient courtyards, the construction of the hotel is based on the original structure of old residences, along with meeting international standards in its facilities. The use of natural materials in embellishments including wooden carvings, window lattice, bamboo floor and ceilings covered with rice paper are aimed at creating a refined ambience. Many of the indoor articles feature a fusion of antique and modern elements, creating a unique environment.
