Apparently, and strangely...
Many/Some do not check on google map and rely on asking.
Google map is gd to gauge how far the location. To ask one walk how long or far from place to place not zhun. Some ppl walk faster some walk slower.

For me, 1km is walkable but others may not.

True to the sense.
Like asking how long a KKJ should be.
But google map really is 很好用。
No data also can load map in hotel before heading out.
They will also pinpoint your location.

New as in recently pop up? There's no new attractions. There's the Shimen Cave / Stone Arch. There's a kite park nearby too.

Think Westgate hotel also around there.
Lobby looks classy for Westgate but the rooms surely is small.
Mid-richardson is bigger.
If you want, can try justsleep. But rather pricey.
Westgate looks nice, my friend recommended westgate too. Will try next time....
I stayed at diary hotel ximen; location is great, but the rooms are really basic and quite worn and no windows... oh well it was $70 for 2 a night thou

Think Westgate hotel also around there.
