I didn't like this hotel. The place is convenient for the forbidden city, and the price is low.
Hotel Kapok Beijing was a very comfortable hotel for a first time traveler to China. It is within easy walking distance to the Fobidden City and Tienamen Square. The English-speaking front desk staff helped arrange transportation for non-native speakers - a VERY IMPORTANT detail as most of the Beijingers do not understand English.The tree shaded streets on the way to the Forbidden City gave glimpses of the hutong (inner courtyard) lives of the Beijing people. Withing a half of a block from the hotel are several restaurants with excellent local cuisine and the hotel restaurant was excellent as well. Tours to other attractions could be arranged through a tourist office in the lower level of the hotel. We used it to book a visit to the Great Wall. The guide was knowledgeable. The outdoor market nearby offered local delicacies and a large modern mall had a foodcourt with Western comfort food.
I highly recommed Hotel Kapok. However, it didn't seem to be very kid friendly.
I dont think you can get a hotel that is closer to the Forbidden City (eight-minute walk to the main cashier) as well as the main shopping strip, Wangfujing (same distance). Located in a nevertheless quiet side street. Two 24h convenience stores within 100 yards from entrance so you can save on expensive mini-bar stuff. Also two ATMs nearby, one from a Chinese bank (directly adjacent to the hotel, worked fine with my US-issued debit card) and a Citibank ATM on the street corner west of the hotel (located inside a restaurant lobby). A hotel with a post-modernist façade and an interior design that makes for an interesting cross-breed between IKEA and Feng Shui. Built around a mini-courtyard, but I think all rooms are either facing the street or the backstreets. Interesting features like a movie theatre adjacent to the lobby and a small library (Chinese books only). Bed a little hard. There is no real working area in your room, just a console to put your computer on and a simple stool. Internet connection (wired in the rooms) is decent. Wireless in the lobby. Excellent Western and Chinese breakfast. Friendly staff. For some reason there is no normal taxi available right in front of the hotel so you have to flag one down on the corner or rent (the more expensive) hotel car. Also, it is not really close to a subway station. You have to walk either East to Dengshikou or South to Tiananmen Dong, both are 10 to 15 minute walks.
My sister and I only had a long weekend to explore Beijing and touch the great wall of China. We couldn't have picked a better hotel. It was affordable, great breakfast included in the price, the staff was wonderful and we would recommend this hotel to anyone. The night market is right around the corner with lots of fun, we went every night. The Staff bent over backwards to make us comfortable.
This place is stylish and the staff are very helpful and smile lots. The Fashion Room is a great value and while it's only 30 sq meters, it's has hardwood floors, flat screen tvs, sound proofed walls, a refrigerator, good closets, and a stylish bathroom. We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the front street and it is more quiet than you would imagine. Sometime though in the morning you can here car horns but you will wake up early anyway to get on with seeing Beijing. The bed was a little hard but we asked for an extra featherbed and all was well. Loved the colors, design, and cleanliness. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Really close to the Forbidden City and Tianamen and Wangfuging - super centrally located. We would stay here again.
I was very satisfied. The room was quiet, it had free high speed wireless internet (which I used a lot when I was in my room), it had a television, and it was very very clean, and had everything nice about it. Also, the hotel was in a centralized location where one could easily reach places like Tiananment Square and other great Chinese sites.
This is the most modern, cutting edge hotel I've stayed at. We were upgraded (at no extra charge) to a suite, which was like a nice sized, big-city studio apartment. The room had all the things you'd expect in a modern hotel (no iron, though), plus a full-sized PC with internet access, free in-room wireless, two sofas, a full-sized desk, flat screen TV, gigantic bathtub for two, and bedside lighting control for the whole ''apartment.'' The only issue was the bed, which was very firm, even with an extra mattress pad they provided. The location is great -- walking distance to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square in one direction, and modern shopping malls in the other. Only one block away is one of the famous ''night markets'' where you can get scorpion on a stick! If you're in the mood for finer fare, the hotel's restaurant is excellent and has reasonable prices. The buffet breakfast was very complete, though it's a little pricey if the room price doesn't include it already (around $12 per person). All-in-all, highly recommended, unless you can't sleep in a very firm bed.
I travel for a living; so stay in a lot of hotels around the world and would rank this as one of my \nfavorites. I didn't use many of the hotel amenities, but the rooms were clean, comfortable and \nvery modern. I stayed there twice in 2 weeks--my first room was a little more expensive, but had\na computer/internet, view of some Forbidden City Buildings and a huge bathtub. Breakfast was \nthe only meal I had there, but was good and decent variety. Staff was friendly and helpful, \nbut not overly so. Location was great--easy walk to the Forbidden City, Tian an men Square,\nand subways. A boutique hotel; so smaller and a bit more personal. Would highly recommend.
