Hotel Kapok Wanfujing

The Hotel Kapok Wanfujing is like Ritz Carlton Hotel Financial Street, the Grand Hyatt Beijing, and the Shangri-La Beijing considered one of the top ten luxury hotels in Beijing.




Conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood close to Wangfujing and the Forbidden City, this Chinese take on funky boutique wraps its distinctive milky-green latticed frame around a five-storey former government building. Designed by influential local architect Zhu Pei, the 89-room hotel flips the traditional hutong concept on its ear - re-working the system of courtyards and public spaces in the vertical for the modern-day traveller. Glass corridors wrap around a central courtyard leading to the 27 suites and 62 standard rooms, some with private pebble courtyards. Service can be sketchy, but great value considering the location.



Price per night: RMB 500+
