Hotel Kapok - Forbidden City, Beijing, China
Great location, helpful staff
Great location, lovely amenities, although the bathroom was looking in a little need of repair but overall a great stay. Room was well appointed and loved the private courtyard. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be back when in Beijing.

Hotel Kapok - Forbidden City, Beijing, China
Three day trip to Beijing
Location is 3 blocks north of the square and 4 blocks south of a major shopping area. Front desk took care of the one trip I wanted. As with so many hotels, it is showing its age a little. Everything was clean but there were some dings and dents. No clock in the room or chairs in reception. Couple of good local places to eat across the street. Glass bathroom not for the shy (or families).
