Hostel quality for hotel price Sep 22, 2017
N37°12'20.0" E112°10'34.7" The entrance to the hotel is now hidden by a newly build restaurant of the same name and café Migu Coffee on the corner of Xigeduo Xiang and North street. Hotel reception is inside Migu Coffee. To enter the courtyard of the hotel, walk to the back of the restaurant, pass the kitchen and open the gate doors to the courtyard.

We chose this hotel for its Western style beds instead of concrete kang-beds. Our small room 110 in August 2017 was on the (ground) first floor in the left corner of the courtyard. It had a soft and excellent sleeping Western double bed, television and air conditioner. Wi-Fi in the room is adequate but not streaming. For fresh air, we opened the window above the front door, only it to be barred by piping. When we closely inspected the room, we noticed bad repairs and lacking maintenance.

The bathroom is an unfinished DIY-attempt. Without shower cabin, the warm shower flooded the bathroom. Cleaning was substandard. Toilet paper need to be deposited in an open bucket that smelled unpleasantly after a day. Alternatively, is it the sewage drain? We kept the bathroom ventilator running and closed the bathroom door to keep the smells out.

Migu Coffee serves Western breakfast without coffee for RMB28 each morning. Chinese breakfast for RMB18 was not available. When ordering coffee along breakfast, you double the price and end up with an expensive breakfast. Except for Chinese music and books, Migu Coffee could be a coffee bar anywhere on the planet. Within Pingyao, Migu Coffee has three branches in exactly the same interior style with attached hotel.

Staff spoke English (a first for us in this part of China) and were helpful. Unfortunately, they did not accept our Visa credit card when paying for the room. We booked the room for €44 per night without breakfast through their English website, which is managed by

This Rough Guide favourite hotel with sister hotels in Beijing and Datong offers hostel quality for hotel prices. We liked the western bed, but overall it was too expensive for the quality on offer.
