    Amazing Place!

    There are many factors that make this one of the top hotels in Beijing. The location is outstanding, just 3 minutes walk to the Forbidden City and 5-10 minutes to Tiananmen Square. The rooms are decent size, good shower, very clean and modern decor. The bathroom in my room was pretty cool with only glass walls. There are curtains to give you privacy, however, they are still see-through. Free internet access was a bonus. Overall, I highly recommend Kapok. In fact, if I ever came back to Beijing, I would not stay anywhere else.

    Good Location

    The Hotel is near the forbidden city and the Wangfujing street, this is the main advantage of this hotel. To the next metro station you have to walk about 15-20 minutes, depending on your walking speed. Rooms are OK, but not as nice as they look on the hotel homepage. The receptionists speak English and are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet its good, you could choose between Asian and western food. The location is superb, close to several of the main sights and a 5 minute walk from the amazing Wangfujing street shopping area with a 6 floor mall down one side and the most comprehensive and expansive collection of designer shops you are likely to find anywhere down the other side. Sadly the hotel is badly let down by the rooms. First of all to describe a third floor room with no external access as a 'courtyard' room because it has a view of a scrutty yard 20 meters below is disgraceful. The room decor was in need of freshening up and the en suite positively grubby.

    Nice comfortable stay in Kapok. Ideal location for the main sights and about 10min walk to subway. We arrived on an overnight train early in the morning. They took our bags and the manager very kindly allowed us have breakfast which was really appreciated. The breakfast is excellent here and loved the egg station. Lots of options close by for dinner. Very friendly staff and met some nice guests also. Very comfortable rooms and good WiFi. Breakfast buffet is great and plenty to choose from. The room itself is very spacious for a family of 4 adults. I highly recommended this hotel.
