The hotel doesn't have anything spectacular, but it's walking distance from the Forbidden City and other monuments. That's a great thing, since you want to avoid taking a cab because of the horrible traffic everywhere. The other downside is they didn't have breakfast included, and metro is quite far (20+ walk). I would stay there again with no issues, but... More

This hotel is in a great location for first time visitors to Beijing as it is close to the Forbidden City. Hotel is clean. My family had a large room and bathroom. Breakfast was good but wifi not so good. Overall great value for money.

We booked this hotel because of the good reviews on Booking and because of its location right next to the Forbidden city. We had received confirmation that our room would be ready right around 8am as we had taken a night flight. Upon arrival at 11 am because of a delayed flight and some delays in getting our luggage, the... More

We stayed here twice both times, our room was very clean and nice. As mentioned in other reviews there is only a curtain and glass wall separating the bathroom and bedroom so make sure you know each other well. Walking distance of major attractions but a very busy road which is sometimes closed to traffic meaning that taxi drivers were... More

My flight was delayed terribly From Guangzhou, but my husband called ahead and asked them to keep the room for me. I didn't get in until nearly 6am, but it was so nice to finally get to a decent hotel. First hotel I've stayed in China that didn't reek of cigarette smoke. The night manager upgraded me to a giant... More

Conveniently situated near the forbidden city and that is the only advantage of staying at this hotel. Rusted floor tiles and fittings, torn pillows, broken weighing scale and very disappointing breakfast. Staffs were very helpful at all times.

This was my third stay at Kapok Hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, staff are friendly and the location very convenient to shops and attractions such Forbidden City and Tianamien Square. There is good high speed Wi-Fi and lots of multi-plug power outlets.

We had a nice stay at this hotel. Location is almost next to the east exit of the Forbidden City (1 min walk). Entrance to Forbidden City and Tiamen square is 15-20 min walk away. Rooms are well maintained, modern, spacious and clean. Staff is friendly and speak reasonable English. We arrived few hours before we could check in and... More

Location perfect for exploring Beijing. That is the best I have to say about this hotel. Everything was ok, but I didn´t feel welcome or comfortable at this hotel. Staff was not very helpful and didn´t give us any information unless we asked for it. Breakfast was ok for Chinese standards. The room was spacious, but beds too hard.

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
