This hotel is great, friendly staff, incredible location, clean rooms, neat lobby and free wifi! But this is definately not a 4 star hotel. I have stayed in 4 star hotels in China and Kapok misses the mark on the small touches. Dirty grouting in the bathrooms and dripping taps. Very minor and petty points, but for a 4 star hotel, should not be an issue.
In my opinon this is a top 3 star hotel and should advertise itself as such. Because with its amazing location, it doesn't need that extra star to pull customers.
Being so close to the shopping street, snack street, a list of restaurants and subway, not to mention the Forbidden City, that is more than enough reason to stay here! I'm glad I came! Thanks Kapok!
