TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kapok Beijing
Hotel Kapok Beijing is a boutique hotel located near the Forbidden City. When you leave the hotel, turn left and go straight. It takes you about 10 minutes of walk to get to the East Gate of the Forbidden City. However, visitors are not allowed to get in the site through East Gate, visitors need to follow the path to the ticket office which is located at the main entrance of the Forbidden City. You will find that not only the location of the hotel is great, but the price and the service are great as well. The hotel room is very clean (really clean, I mean it), modern and comfortable. There are free drinks placed on the tea table to welcome visitors as well. Also, the staffs are quite helpful and friendly. They always wear a warm smile on the face. It cost only RMB$600 per night during Spring Festival.

The nearest experience i've had to the crowds in the city was the mosh pit of a rock gig but we went with it and ended up heading straight through the main squares to the smaller buildings at the back which is where most of the museums and displays are found. The cool, dark display rooms around the edges of the city were a relief from the sun and actually pretty interesting: we saw some art scrolls that decorated the walls for dynasties as well as ice-blue imperial ceramics. ...
... there is a good restaurant. Our hostel is actually right next o the forbidden city! Brilliant!
We've come to restaurant quite famous with locals. Picked some familiar dishes, like beef in mushrooms and sweet and sour ribs, even some prawns and peking duck, however were also getting bullfrog!!

The meal was very tasty, even the bullfrog was ok, it was just ...
