Hotel Kapok - Forbidden City
Amazing Hotel -- Will book again for sure!
Amazing location. We had amazing service. Hot water supply seems to be an issue during the peak hours at this hotel but they very quickly rectified it with their plumber when I call the reception. The aircon made the air very dry so it was so nice to see that they provided us with a humidifier. Rooms were very large. The taxis found their way easily. Location is very central. Loads of good food just outside the hotel.
