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.

The Hotel Kapok was easily accessible to major locations of interest and public transportation. The front desk staff were patient and kind. Rooms were clean. A/C takes a little bit to get going. Beds hard. Very generous with free water and soft drinks in the room!

The rooms are very expensive, the staff offered us an upgrade to luxury suite, and the cost was even more expensive, the worst thing the rooms doesn't include breakfast after upgrade, this is very common situation in China, for breakfast you have to pay high price. We took the tour to Great Wall Mutianyu. The trip was nice, the guide... More

Travelling with wife and two grown-up children, stayed there in June for 4 days, using two rooms. The hotel is well located. Make sure you have the name and address in Chinese characters to show to your taxi driver (it is available on their website). For us, getting there from the airport was no problem - showed the address, taxi... More

Very good attention and willingness to help. Good english. Little far from subway but very close to forbidden city and huang fu ying. The bed was really hard, though. Wi-fi only works at the lobby and the breakfast wasn't that good.

The location of this hotel is very good. It is very central to everything. The rooms are very modern and stylish with lots of storage room. We had a family room that had a large seating area with a huge TV-we rarely used it-and a big desk/workspace. The bed was a king sized bed. The bathroom was huge with an... 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
