    Hotel Kapok is located at a very convenient location. Easy to hail for a cab. There is a convenient store just beside the hotel. Turning left from the property’s entrance, 10-15 mins walk to Forbidden City main entrance. Turning right, 10 mins walk to Wangfujing Street. There are plenty of eateries around the vicinity too. I stayed in a family suite (60sqm). Windows can be opened. The only downside of the room are the lightning which can be very dimmed at night and quite dusty in the room. Hope the hotel can improve on these areas. Humidifier is provided in the room during my winter stay. Overall, I will be back to this hotel when I visit Beijing again.

    My family likes the free mini bar in the hotel room. They like the walk-in yard. There is a special design in restaurant which is good for taking photos.

    The wall between the rooms are not very thick, I can hear the noise from the next room one night. Otherwise, everything else is great. Great location and the room has hardwood floor too.

    Great location in the heart of Beijing

    Great large room in the deluxe family room. Just like pictures. View of the Main Street was nice. Bathtub big for two. Bathroom the size of the room. Bed a bit hard for us. Problem I see is the tv channels.. only 1 English station.Hotel is 15min from forbidden city entrance. 5 min walk from Wangfujing shopping street. 15 min walk from metro station. Good location near restaurants and shopping.

    Hotel is rated 4 stars. But that is according to chinese standard. If i were to rate it according to international standard its just a 3 star. The staffs there are very helpful and friendly. But the cleanliness of the room especially the toilet is bad, and it shows signs of ageing. Located at a central area. But far from nearest metro. And there is no designated area for pick up and drop off. Its at the main road. And you have to be quick if not the cars behind would start horning
