Having traveled as a student to China nearly 20 years ago, I decided to visit Beijing with my sister, daughter and nephew so they could experience a little of the culture and adventure that I experienced. Having studied the language I decided to go the more local route and stay at a Chinese hotel as opposed to a large chain. The King Talent hotel did not disappoint. Our rooms were quite nice, the bed was king-sized and comfy, the shower pressure was just right, everything functioned as it should have and the adjustable thermostat was great to have as we had a couple chilly nights and then some really warm ones. The restaurant in the hotel did not really offer Western breakfast options (the kids are not adventurous eaters) and I had a hilarious bit of an Abbott and Costello moment trying to ask for milk which only added to the adventure. My only complaint is that we didn't get the booking dates right (I didn't factor in the time difference correctly) and we had to pay for an extra night which somehow cost as much as the total cost of the five prior nights booked in advance. It made me feel a little hoodwinked which was the one memory of my first trip that I didn't want to revisit. But next time I'll be sure to double check my dates and my time zones when booking.
