Well lets say the pictures need updating. The hotel has been updated, while we were there they were painting the rooms. The hotel is located on the 7th and 8th floor. Staff were pleasant the roos were small and clean, the shower is very slippery even with shower mat. Beds are comfortable and wifi was good. The hotel location was... More

The moment we stepped foot in the building, our initial thought was, "is this a hotel??!". So up we went to the 7F which is the reception area. The elevator was small and old but still working mighty fine. At the reception, we were greeted by a nice staff who immediately tended to our reservation and immediate additional room request...

Having stayed in other budgeted hotels in Ximending such as Gosleep Hotel, Good Ground hotel, Teachers' hostel, etc, King Shi is my still my best choice in terms of cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness. They also provide tours and airport transfer. Less attractive is the breakfast which is the same throughout but enough to fill a hungry stomach. This hotel is... More

There was a foul smell in the room. Could also smell the opposite room smoking and requested the staff to request other guest not to smoke but the staff said that it can't be helped as they have no right to ask guest not to smoke. Remembered clearly that I requested for non-smoking room. The bedsheets weren't clean and concierge... More

Located near Ximen mrt. The building of the hotel is very tired and the lift in a sorry condition. Since the hotel only occupied 7th and 8th floor, hotel guest are forced to use the same lift with the local residence. However, when we reach the lobby at 7th floor, its like entering a different world, the lobby and the... More

Its located at a rather old buildings at 7th floor and 8th floor. The lobby is a bit dirty and old. Room is consider fair,... More

Located in 142 Kunming Street, less than 10 minutes from Ximen Mrt Station. Hotel sign board along the road is not very conspicuous and also in Chinese. If going to hotel, tell taxi 142 Kunming Street, they should be able to find the place. (I did it myself). Hotel room is located on the 7th and 8th floor of an... More

This affordable hotel is not for fussy customers. Located approximately 7mins walk to the Ximen Metro Station and the trendy Ximending, Amenities such as convenient stores, eateries and laundry shop are located near the hotel. Starbucks is just across the street. The hotel itself could use some refreshing. The room looks old and and not as clean in certain areas.... More
