      Hotel Kapok is located at a very convenient location. Easy to hail for a cab. There is a convenient store just beside the hotel. Turning left from the property’s entrance, 10-15 mins walk to Forbidden City main entrance. Turning right, 10 mins walk to Wangfujing Street. There are plenty of eateries around the vicinity too. I stayed in a family suite (60sqm). Windows can be opened. The only downside of the room are the lightning which can be very dimmed at night and quite dusty in the room. Hope the hotel can improve on these areas. Humidifier is provided in the room during my winter stay. Overall, I will be back to this hotel when I visit Beijing again.

      Stayed 4 nights in Dec. 2019
