We arrived at the hotel and were met with friendly English speaking staff who assisted us beautifully. The room was interesting with the glass bathroom and passage, but the curtains sorted any concerns about this out for those who like their privacy! The breakfast was good and had a good variety of local and 'close to' western foods.

The Hotel Kapok is in a great location near the Forbidden City in Beijing. Lots to see right outside the door, Room was clean and staff was friendly and we really enjoyed the restaurant as well: breakfast buffet was excellent (92 RMB) and dinner was quite good too. Very convenient to charge meals to the room and pay with a...

Loved our stay there. Staff is courteous and helpful - and speaks English, location is perfect (you can see the Forbidden City from your room...) and our family room was big and comfortable with a huge bath tub. You can try thousand-years-eggs at breakfast if you like. Highly recommended!

Modern fairly new hotel; conveniently located to the Forbidden Palace and major attractions. Serviceable staff at front desk who spoke English. Breakfast options were excellent - both a wide range of Western foods with very good French pastries as well as Chinese foods - we mixed both to try a bit of everything. Only downside was the bed...the mattresses are...

Hotel Kapok offers a great location and decent amenities at a great value. It is located just blocks away from the Forbidden City and not far from the metro. The hotel is a minimalist aesthetic and offers the basics in each room. The courtyard that some of the rooms have are quite nice, but do not have direct sunlight and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Kapok in Beijing is a uniquely designed boutique hotel located in the heart of this ancient Chinese city. A modern looking boutique hotel crafted with a touch of Chinese influence, next to the Forbidden City in Beijing. The lantern, a traditional icon in China, is used as a concept of exterior design, which breaks the boundaries between inner space and outdoor environment. An unconventional layout presents a spacious area; the ample use of glass enhances the natural light and the bamboo courtyard in the lobby slows the pac e of urban life. Hotel Kapok consists of 89 guestrooms and 16 suites, appointed with small gardens on the balcony. The interior design focuses on simplicity and pureness: white is all-pervading in the room, wooden floors and glass built bathrooms liberates the traveler's body and soul. The "Staircase Library" certainly increases the joy of reading. Hotel Kapok delivers personalized services while providing conveniences such as restaurants, bars, meeting rooms, business and fitness center.Hotel Kapok is located in the heart of Beijing , on the east side of the Forbidden City, minutes away from the famous shopping district Wangfujing. Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Beijing Train Station is also close by. ... more   less
