Nice and affordable hotel in center of Beijing
Overall it is good. Location is convenient. Room temperature can't be adjusted and it was kind of hot and dry even with the humidifier on. Drinks in the fridge are free, including soda, a can of beer and water.

Perfect for seeing central Beijing
This was a great base for walking to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Sqaure. The room was comfy, but fair warning that with only a curtain separating the bathroom it may be a bit too intimate for some. The breakfast had a large selection of local and western flavors including cooked to order eggs and my favorite the Chinese pancake. The friendly staff was also very helpful arranging for a driver to hire for the day for a trip up to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall.

Sightseeing perfection
Definitely a wonderful place if you are doing the main sightseeing spots in Beijing. Location is unbeatable. Price is right for the condition/age of the hotel and size of the room.

Hotel Kapok - Forbidden City, Beijing
Rooms were good, excellent customer service, good breakfast buffet options (though could stand to be monitored more closely - often we came down only at 8am to find everything half-eaten and waited 20-30 minutes for fresh additions). Location can't be beat, and desk staff helped with taxi arrangements.

Double charge my room. Dispute the charge via credit card company. They still denied it.
