                  The staff was fantastic - they all speak really good English and are very helpful. The location was also great - right next to the Forbidden City, not too far from Tiananmen square and the subway (15min walk).

                  I just expected something different based on all cool hotel photos and its 4 stars. Rooms could be bigger, TV screen can also be bigger. I stayed in a fashion room and didn't really understand why it was called that way. I suppose it's a matter of setting the right expectations upfront.

                  The hotel is on a quiet street, within walking distance to Wangfujing street and close to the Forbidden city & Tiananmen Square.There is a small restaurant just across from the hotel which is open for breakfast at 6.30 a.m. where you can get a bowl of noodles for 12 yuan, a hardboiled egg for 2 yuan, steamed buns for 2 yuan or a bowl of rice porridge for 1.5 yuan. The Jade Garden Hotel next door has tours to the great wall at Mutianyu or Badaling for 320 yuan, the tour was excellent & so much more reasonable than the tour offered by Hotel Kapok. The receptionist at the front desk spoke some English. We paid 90 yuan for taxi from the airport and 100 yuan going back. No problems getting a taxi to the airport. The no.60 bus stop is just round the corner from the hotel

                  The hotel is a little far from the subway stop

                  The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Facilities are reasonable for a small boutique hotel. Location is fine if shopping is your thing. However the MRT stations are a little out of walking distance especially if you have been visiting Beijing's attraction which requires enormous amounts of walk.

                  I dont like the design of the bathroom where its all glassed up but for privacy there's a curtain. However if you're inside the bathroom you are not able to close the curtains because its located outside the bathroom. Its a design flaw. If I am the hotel management I'll do away with the curtains and install frost paper over the glass facade of the bathroom to provide "convenient" privacy

                  The hotel is very close to Wangfujing street and benefits of walking distance to Forbidden City and the Donghuamen night food market. Closeby there are plenty of food outlets and 24-hr convenience store. You will not need to go to metro as taxis are cheap as the mode of transportation.

                  There is no door for the bathroom but it has curtains to cover it. I appreciate the modern design but very uncomfortable without the door to close the bathroom. Every sound and probably smell can get through it! Fix a door please.

                  Shower stall drain did not work and you will find standing in a puddle of water after the shower for room 5501. If you get upgraded to this room ask them if they fix the drain. They will not fix the drain but just give up lip service that they will look into it. Speak very little English except a guy there.

                  Average Hotel, no big surprises here! Insulation for noise is very good. Clean hotel.

                  Internet connection does not work both in the rooms or the library area, I had to go outside the Hotel to manage to check my emails! As far as international cuisine the Hotel does not offer any options, had to eat the same for the full duration of my stay there and in the surroundings you can only find chinese food, which I am not a big fan.

                  Room very spacious and clean. The bathroom especially the big bathtub was the best I've ever seen. It was also very easy to book tour trips. The lady working there was very helpful. One night, I booked a Kung Fu show and being on my own, the female guide stayed with me throughout the performance and gave me so much information about the show and Beijing, the city, I've learnt a lot.

                  The reservation staff were not always helpful with regards to answering my questions. They took a deposit from me on the evening that I've arrived which was bigger than what I was expecting to pay even including the 15% charge for each night stayed( I had an understanding that with Booked.net that the room was already paid for). I had to wait until I checked out on the last day to see what the actual cost was. They said they've cancelled the deposit but it's still registered on my credit card. A bit frustrating really.

                  The staff are nice and friendly. Their English is much more appreciated. The design of the hotel are really nice and sleek. The rooms are clean and comfortable too. The amenities are more than complete. Location is great, despite some troublesome rules of the road, it still is a great location. I stayed with my big family group, my reviews are actually the same with the other 2. They are all quite satisfy and keep complementing the nice design and the cleanliness of the rooms.

                  Bus cannot stop right in front of the hotel. So we have to drag our bulky and heavy luggages to quite a distance where the bus can stop. And since the hotel doesn't have a lobby, the rain could be annoying when we want to move our luggages from the bus to the hotel, or vice versa.

                  We were there in August for 4 nights with 3 young children in a Fashion Suite. Nice and clean hotel and room with attractive features and design. Breakfast (came with our stay) was surprisingly nice with healthy and changed items daily. Tasty single made coffee/cappuccino - rare find in hotels we stayed in China. We had 2 kids sleep in the 2 sofa beds. Nice hotel staff even made the sofa bed daily. It's a little walk to the nearest subway - Tian an men east.

                  Booking a room in this hotel I was informed that no deposit is charged in this hotel but deposit was the first thing they did when I came there - they asked my credit card and hold a deposit which was much greater than the whole price of my stay in this hotel. And only after that and after my questions they returned on my card the money for the first night that they hold on my card soon after booking a room in this hotel. It was very unexpectedly for me. And there were strange for me attempts to clean my room and change towels and so on at 21:00. I think it is not a right time if I was absent at my room from the morning until the evening.
