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.
