This was our first time in China and we were on a family vacation with our 9 and 10 year old boys. We we very happy with Hotel Kapok. We had the family suite which was spacious with plenty of room for our family of 4. It was much bigger than a traditional hotel room. The hotel is modern and clean with staff who speak English. The location was perfect! While there is a hotel restaurant, we wanted to really experience China. There are two outdoor food stands across the street where we got breakfast each morning (about $15-20 USD for the whole family). We could easily walk to Tienaman Square, the Forbidden City, Jingshan Park, Wangfujing Street, and the Night Market. After touring Beijing for four days, we did not see any location that we would have preferred more than Hotel Kapok.

Neat and trendy hotel near Wangfujing St

Very nice staff and helpful with all the questions. Few of them spoke good English and were great at guiding how to get around. These hotels are great for couples and he breakfast is also great.

Happy at Kapok

Pros: It was modern in design, yet had friendly service. Staff was very helpful in every single instance.
Cons: Give the guests two keys. At times had to coordinate activity with brother, which made things a bit inconvenient with one key per room.
Location: Only 6 blocks from the Forbidden City in one direction, a large-scale mall 4 blocks away in the other. Charming noodle shops, etc. in between.
My brother and I stayed at the Kapok for one weekend and were happily surprised with the quality and charm of our hotel as I had randomly picked it from a map showing proximity to the Forbidden City. Truly a little gem of a hotel! We arrived before check-in time, but the accommodating staff got our room ready early with no fuss. The location is easily within walking distance of the Forbidden City, which pleased me greatly. The in-house restaurant has convenient hours and delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and I have no complaints about either the food or the service. The staff was also helpful in arranging a Great Wall Tour package with a wonderful guide and a lot of sights packed into the excursion. Without doubt, I recommend the Kapok Hotel for an excellent and pleasing stay.
