The Kapok calls itself a " boutique hotel". Wishfully. Do you think you have a reservation? Maybe, if you say "yes" ,it means "maybe". If you say "I have a reservation for a room on the 5th floor" (from two weeks ago), you may get the serious answer we got :we are full, you have to take a room on the second floor. Which is the difference? On the second floor ,we weren't able to open the curtains - the rooms face an other building (very close).
The bathroom is closed with a curtain-no door, all its walls are transparent glass. Very unpleasant if you are not alone.
*The location - very good, close to the Wang fu Jing shopping mall & pedestrian road;
*In the restaurant - very nice staff. Bell-boys -very helping and polite.
