Questions & Answers

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

Usually this is not a problem; you can arrange for an after-hours check-in with most hotels. However, you should always confirm with the hotel. You can use the "Special Requests" box in the booking process to inform them of your estimated arrival time in writing. It's important to remember that the property can't always accommodate these requests. It's always best to check with the property directly and in advance to avoid confusion. You can contact the hotel directly by calling them, the local telephone number you can get from Nehow's Local Guide after you finish the booking.

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

A late check-out can only be arranged with the hotel and usually depends on availability at the time of your stay. You can ask about the possibility at the front desk upon arrival.

  • Nice stay
    Ger F
    Feb 6, 2018 | Trip type: Couples

    Nice comfortable stay in Kapok. Ideal location for the main sights and about 10min walk to subway.
    We arrived on an overnight train early in the morning. They took our bags and the manager very kindly allowed us have breakfast which was really appreciated.
    The breakfast is excellent here and loved the egg station.
    Lots of options close by for dinner.
    Very friendly staff and met some nice guests also.
    Very comfortable rooms and good WiFi.
    I would recommend staying here.

    A note of caution for the area - beware of friendly English speaking locals around forbidden city and subway station. We got caught out by a well dressed couple approx 30yrs old to go for coffee and ended up with a massive bill. A clear scam which could have turned nasty but we got out of there having paid 50euro. The cafe was in on it also.
    Lesson learned

  • Great base for Beijing visit
    Ingge P
    Adelaide, Australia | Jan 25, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    The location is great! Easy walk to shopping district (Wangfujing), Jingshan Park, Forbidden Palace. The staff are lovely and easy to talk to. Breakfast buffet is great and plenty to choose from. The room itself is very spacious for a family of 4 adults.

  • Normal, if a bit disappointing
    Italy | Jan 24, 2018 | Trip type: Solo travel

    I travel a lot in China for both work and leisure and I have to say this was the worst metro station to hotel road I've ever encountered, and being a logistic manager I visit a lot of non central areas, too. I arrived at 9.30PM at Tiananmen station and the road leading to the hotel was completely dark, sporadic illumination and no shops open, no one on the street. It was pretty upsetting as streets in China, especially city centers, are usually very well illuminated and pretty controlled. I didn't feel in any danger by itself, but it was pretty upsetting because, you know, no one around on a dark road, not really the best feeling. The metro is PRETTY far away, do note that. I needed a place convenient for metro travelling and I completely failed at the choice. It's a bit more than the 1.2km stated here, teaches me to double check always. The hotel is difficult to recognize from street level as it looks like the entrance to a bank, so I had to pass it and look up from some meters to see the name. The room was on the dusty side, wifi was completely useless and only one blurry tv channel in English. They suggest you use plastic shoes for the shower which frankly speaking was sort of upsetting for an hotel rated like this one, and even thought they say it is to avoid slipping I did see mould on the bathroom floor. Toilet flush was weak, too. The room interior in general shows age and not a good regular deep cleaning.
    The staff was very friendly and helpful though, I had a very good experience with both the checkin and checkout ladies on duty. Especially the check in lady was very nice and gave me some extra address cards for taxis if needed as she was pretty impressed I had reached the hotel walking (this says a lot about the distance of the hotel from the metro). The bed was comfortable and the free bottled water (4 bottles!) and soft drinks in the room were a nice touch. I didn't try the breakfast but it looked pretty well stocked from the outside. Forbidden city is close by, but you have to check from which entrance you can access it. Other historical sites are within walking distance, although not really that close by. At checkout the lady on duty called an official taxi that arrived straight away, very convenient! I suggest always using official taxis in China as they are cheap and the drivers respect all speed and distance laws.

  • Good Hotel with Excellent Location
    Vipin G
    Auckland, New Zealand | Jan 22, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    Hotel room and service was good but the best is the location. As a tourist has perfect location - look no further. everything walking distance and hotel is good / excellent and the only minus point is that the staff is not versed in English as a result slight problem. Will advise management to have atleast one fluent speaking english staff as that will help - no other complaint.

    Zambales | Jan 11, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    good location. few blocks to wangfujing, to forbidden city and even to the train.
    nice room ( I booked a family room). But I could have replan the room better.
    I just don't like the door of the toilet beside my bed, because I am distracted by the light from the toilet. I booked a spacious room (50 sq mtr estimate). My kids enjoyed the big circular bathtub.

    buffet is okay. I suggest to enlarge the drinking glasses. too small. I also wish the water will not be in a jug that i need to pump 8x to fill a small glass. very time consuming and tiring to pump and to refill my glass.

    i also hope the housekeeping will always refill the free water, free soft drinks and free beer. I needed to call the reception to remind them almost every night.

    I find the room a little dusty esp under the carpet and within the sofa area.
    they need to do more cleaning (vacuum).

    overall, i am satisfied, That is why I am giving this hotel 85%.
    Most likely I will stay again in this hotel, when I go back

    By the way, they provided me a portable heater (bec it was winter).
    Thanks Kapok.
