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 is a solid choice
I'm an American traveller who likes to stay in comfortable, clean, stylish, geographically desirable yet affordable accommodations. After looking at dozens of possible places to stay in Beijing, I'm glad I chose Hotel Kapok! It's not super fancy yet mostly modern. My bed was comfy, room was modern and clean. Check in staff was friendly and professional, spoke basic English. Location is ideal, very centrally located to all the sights, food, shopping. The only 2 heads-up issues I had: There are no-smoking signs all over the hotel, however, it smelled of smoke. From my perception, Chinese don't enforce this rule. Also, I had a street-facing room. The good thing is the view of the bustling street. Tho I believe windows are sound proof, you still hear ambient street noise in the day and night. I would stay here again for sure.

Great Location
Excellent location, walking distance from Forbidden city. The staff were very helpful. The wi-fi was very slow. From across the hotel there is an excellent Restaurant serving Peking duck. Amazing food.
