Wasn’t a fan of the food but most reviewers seem to disagree so it probably says more about me than about the chef. :-
Great place. Location was fantastic, the bed super comfy and the shower was fab. Worth getting a room with balconyas views are just too good.

Great, would recommend
Mosquitos in the lounge. There were mosquito nets available over doors but these were kept open. No card payment available and no ATMs in pingan so take cash.
Great rooms and bathrooms, friendly staff and decent food. Nice balcony and overall great value for money.

There was a strange odor coming from bathroom. I only stayed one night and so didn't express this to staff.
Wonderful local food at very reasonable prices. I had the Guilin noodle and it was fabulous. Veggies were excellent as well. It rained and I was glad it did because the view from balcony in the morning was gorgeous. Very close to some of the scenic spots and walking along the rice terrace was very delightful.

beautiful interior and perfect views
+ rooms: the rooms are very beautifully done, we had a large window towards the rice terrasses, super beautiful! the bed was comfy, everything was very clean, there even was a shower wall / curtain - we really enjoyed it. + staff: super helpful, organizing buses, very friendly and welcoming + food: nothing spectacular, but surely ok + location: the location was perfect quite far up, a 20 min walk from the parking lot and only a 15 min walk from the viewpoint. there are signs with the hotels phone number, follow those and you‘ll find it easily. :) there‘s some construction sites in ping‘an - if you want to be all alone in nature it will be hard for you in one of the villages. all very touristy already, but if you expect that it‘s still very beautiful. tip: we left our big luggage at the park‘s entrance, so we could sleep in ping‘an, hike to dazhai, take the bus back to guilin from there and fetch our luggage on the way.

Everything was fine. The Wifi didn't work the day we visit... Probably our bad luck.

Nothing major. In general, I was very satisfied with my stay here. A few small things: - Aircon rather noisy. - A more comfortable chair would have been great to sit on the balcony in a more relaxed way. Nothing that should stop you from booking this hotel though! I'd certainly recommend staying here!
- Beautiful view, especially from the balcony (I think that's the first reason to stay here)! - Close to walking paths among the rice terraces (I did the loop that first goes to the "Nine dragons and five tigers" viewpoint, then onto "Seven stars with the moon"; the latter was currently closed for maintenance but you can still walk near there and the views are wonderful as well when you're not at an official viewpoint. Someone else recommended downloading the Maps.me app to find the trail. That worked great indeed. Just don't search for this hotel on that map because they put it in a completely different village...) - Large room with reasonably comfortable beds/pillows and good (though noisy) aircon. - Spacious balcony. A final note: it's not easy to find the place the first time (later I noticed a few signs to the hotel around the village, but I didn't find those on the first day). It's hard to explain clearly how to walk here, but this is what I remember: - From the parking space, go through the ticket check into the lower part of the village. - Walk straight ahead for a few hundred metres. This is just one straigh street, going slightly uphill but no stairs yet. - When you come to the end of this line of shops, turn left and cross a bridge over the river. - Keep following the path. Soon you start climbing stairs. I think at some point there is a fork where you have to keep right. - When you come to the top of the stairs, turn left (maybe it's more or less straight ahead). - When you pass a restaurant called "Life" on your left (they have nice food, by the way), you will soon see stairs on your right. Go up these stairs and at the top turn right. - The street will turn to the left and you will pass a small convenience store on your right. After that take stairs down on your right. - Go straight ahead, cross a small bridge and after that keep right.

Slightly more expensive than the average Chinese hostel but great view. You may be waken up by the roosters in the morning although this is not really an issue for us.
Nice location in the Pingan village, friendly staff. Surrounding rice fields are very beautiful and there are two viewing platforms on walking distance.

A great place to stay!
Need to walk uphill for 20-25mins.
Such a comfortable place with clean rooms (booked a double & a twins), tasty in-house restaurant food and extremely helpful & informative staff ( San Mao & Li Xiang)!

The location is good but the property is a little hard to find.
Friendly and helpful staff despite limitations in English language.

No internet in my room. Only in the communal area.
Helpful and friendly staff. Mr Zhuang, the owner, drove 3 of us to Erlong Bridge(at the bottom of the mountains)so that we did not miss our connecting coaches. A big thank you. Clean rooms Delicious food. Big portions. Ate all my meals there.

The location in ping'an was perfect with a view of the village and the rice terraces from our balcony and lovely walks starting from infront of the hotel. The walk from the bus stop could be tiring if you have luggage but that's the same with all hotels in Ping'An! The food was great and the staff were very helpful and accommodating! Thanks for a great stay

Tranquil, wonderful view of the Ping An rice terraces!!!
A tad difficult to find the place. Perhaps the staff could look into placing more directional signs around the village for navigation? Or recommend contact when lost.
The room was comfortable and clean! The view of the rice terraces was incredible. The atmosphere in the accommodation is also amazing. Had a very good sleep in the comfortable bedroom.

Exceptional Staff and location
Amazing staff. Arranged transfers worked perfectly. Speaking perfect English. When we got lost on a hike they sent us via WeChat pictures so we can find our way back. Excellent food and so friendly it us unbeatable. Also acted as our tour guides who arranged things for us via phone. Thank you for being perfect in a stunning location in the center of the historic village of Ping An, right next to the entrance to most major paths through the terraces. Good rooms with a lovely view.

Great hotel for sunrise viewing of rice terraces!
Can’t thunk of anything
This was a very comfortable, pleasant hotel. Staff are very helpful. This hotel is the closest hotel to the rice terrace viewing area, which made it very convenient for sunrise viewing. They also have free use of a washer and dryer that work very well
