A chic hotel combining Zen sensibilities with contemporary stylings – includes your choice of day tour

The Lowdown

Immerse yourself in Beijing’s rich culture with a stay at an elegant boutique hotel. The aesthetic at Hotel Kapok Beijing is sleek – a calming white palette paired with an expanse of glass and complemented with touches of greenery. During the day, interiors are bright and airy, with plenty of natural light. Come nightfall, the space lights up with the sparkle of tiny twinkle lights from the inner courtyard.
Traditional Chinese icons, such as the lantern and bamboo, are incorporated as design concepts, resulting in a soothing, Zen-like ambiance. Rooms are equally relaxing, with a relaxed style that, like the hotel, is a mix of both contemporary and traditional, natural elements.
Located in the Dong Cheng District, the hotel is just a stone’s throw from the famous Forbidden City, plus an easy 10-minute walk to the popular Wangfujing shopping district and a 20-minute walk to Tiananmen Dong Subway Station. This is the perfect base for discovering the city’s best cultural landmarks, and the hotel even has cars and bicycles on hand to rent to make the exploring even easier.

The hotel staff went beyond when our luggage were delivered late due to airline mistake. They kept it save. I also love the family room that is huge and super clean. Location of course very good since it's close to Forbidden city and surrounding.

Breakfast were varies.

They also have a play area for the kids in floor 4 if I am not forget.

Great stay!

Free minibar, nice room, great location. Reasonable price if you book early enough! Only odd part was the open bathroom concept but you get used to it. No complaints, everything was great. Breakfast at hotel is a bit expensive, but it is all you can eat.

Nice and clean( very important to notice regarding the standards).English speaker staff ( quite important to notice too) very close To forbidden city and 10min walk To 2 metro station.totally worth the price , if I had to visit Beijing again I'll definitely go there again.
Rapport qualité prix imbattable, propreté exemplaire ( assez rare à Beijing pour être notifié) et staff aidant qui parle anglais.Proche station de métro(10min max) et de la cité interdite.A conseiller, si je devais de nouveau visiter Beijing c'est ici que je viendrais !
가성비 좋음. (베이징에서는 꽤 드문) 모범적인 청결함에 영어 가능한 친절한 직원 있음. 지하철역, 자금성과 가까움. 만약 나중에 또 베이징을 방문하게 된다면 다시 이 호텔에 묵을 의사 있음.

A Good Hotel in a Good Location at a Good Price (3.5 Stars)

This isn’t the most luxurious hotel in Beijing, but it’s clean and in a safe and convenient location, so consider it a solid 3 star hotel. Actually, if you throw in the fabulous rainforest showerhead (just what you need after a long international flight) it’s really 3.5 stars. It’s very close to The Forbidden City, and walkable to a couple of subway stations (assuming you’re okay with walking more than a few blocks). The front desk staff all speak English, as does the staff in the restaurant/bar, but the behind-the-scenes staff and housekeeping doesn’t speak much. (At least learn to say hello and thank you in Chinese, to be polite.) I highly recommend upgrading from the smallest room size. It does not cost much more, and the upgraded rooms are quite large and comfortable. All rooms have a kettle for boiling water (don’t drink the tap water!), and the bottled waters and drinks in the mini-bar are free. In addition, there is a trustworthy ATM right next door (ATMs aren’t as prevalent in Beijing as in the US), and a nice sized convenience-type store, which sells fruit, bread, drinks, candy and other snacks. It’s open at least until midnight, if not later. All in all, a good hotel in a good location at a good price. I would definitely stay there again.
