The hotel is good, but they only gave us one key and we were 3, and when we asked for sheets, towels and toiletteries for the third person, they took ages. The bed for the third person is literally the sofa. The breakfast buffet has a lot of variety which is good. I dont recommend to book the Great wall... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend after hearing good recommendation from a friend. Great location! We got the subway from the airport, on our way to the hotel we walked past many high street shops. Like many reviews have stated, it's close to night food market, Forbidden city and Tiananmen square. The rooms are so spacious, nicely decorated.... More

Stayed in beijing three nights the second week of June and this hotel and its staff made my visit to Beijing nice and pleasant. The staff was super friendly and offered us cheap and good tours, got us a taxi to the airport and upgraded us for free only because we used their services. The staff was always helpful, thew...

If you want a clean hotel in a good neighbourhood that is close to several sights, shopping and restaurants, the Kapok is a great choice. You can't miss the hotel as you approach from the street - it's architecturally unique and stands out from the neighbouring buildings. The hotels interior spaces, although getting a bit rough around the edges, are... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel, walking distance to the Forbidden City, the night food market and my favorite spa, Drangonfly. The modern rooms were very nice, although we found the lack of a real door on the bathroom, just a curtain, rather disconcerting. What really sold us on this hotel, however was the really helpful front desk... More

I went to Beijing on my own (i.e., without my second and best half), so did not want to go to expensive hotels. Kapok was a great choice, so much so that, next time in Beijing with or without my wife, I will probably choose it. The pros: - Very good price (I stayed for 5 or 6 nights, they... More

Friends and I stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Kapok in Beijing and we were very impressed. Service was excellent, breakfast buffet was incredible, and rooms were very comfortable. The design is very unique and quite pleasant. The front desk attendants were helpful and spoke English. What we really liked was the location...in a typical Chinese neighborhood and very close...

This hotel has a great location. Walking distance to Forbidden City, Tiananmen and Wangfujing Street. Tony at the front desk has the best command of English and was very helpful with all our questions. İt is next to a foot massage spa...after a long day of walking, it is the perfect finish.

We are very pleased with our stay at Hotel Kapok. The location can't be beat (10 minute walk from Forbidden City, 15 minute walk from Tiananmen Square, 20 minute walk from Behai Park, 15 minute walk from Wangfujing night market, and plenty of shopping/hutong within 10 minutes). The hotel is clean, the rooms are comfortable, breakfast buffet was good (included... More

The most attractive feature of the hotel is its location. It is within a short walking distance from the Forbidden City and the Tiananmen Square (but you can easily access that by metro from anywhere in the city). The easiest way to get to the hotel is by taxi (they are very cheap in Beijing). But if you decide to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Kapok in Beijing is a uniquely designed boutique hotel located in the heart of this ancient Chinese city. A modern looking boutique hotel crafted with a touch of Chinese influence, next to the Forbidden City in Beijing. The lantern, a traditional icon in China, is used as a concept of exterior design, which breaks the boundaries between inner space and outdoor environment. An unconventional layout presents a spacious area; the ample use of glass enhances the natural light and the bamboo courtyard in the lobby slows the pac e of urban life. Hotel Kapok consists of 89 guestrooms and 16 suites, appointed with small gardens on the balcony. The interior design focuses on simplicity and pureness: white is all-pervading in the room, wooden floors and glass built bathrooms liberates the traveler's body and soul. The "Staircase Library" certainly increases the joy of reading. Hotel Kapok delivers personalized services while providing conveniences such as restaurants, bars, meeting rooms, business and fitness center.Hotel Kapok is located in the heart of Beijing , on the east side of the Forbidden City, minutes away from the famous shopping district Wangfujing. Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Beijing Train Station is also close by. ... more   less
