“Great Location and Value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

The Kingston has location, price and very friendly, helpful staff/owners. It has an elevator, sauna, luggage storage, laundry and a very good restaurant attached. There are many charming and beautiful decor details, lots of local information, and a comfortable breakfast room with TV and fireplace. The breakfast is very good (great oranges) and everything is spotless. Some rooms have bathrooms and others, with their own sink, slippers and bathrobes, share bathrooms fitted with hairdryers and plenty of fresh bathmats.

We've been coming here for 20 years and are never disappointed!

I stayed here one night before moving to the more spacious and expensive Fairmont hotel a few blocks away. I had a double room with ensuite bathroom for less than 100 dollars. The next morning I had all the coffee, tea and toast that I could manage. The building work next door didn't disrupt my sleep. If all you need is a comfortable tidy hotel to sleep in then you won't get much better than the Kingston for the comfort and price.

I stayed at this hotel over the weekend mainly because of its low price and good reviews. I stayed at a single room, there was a sink and mirror in the room but I had to use a shared bathroom. I had no trouble at all with that because the bathroom was always free and clean.

The staff were very helpful in answering questions, providing directions and suggesting places to visit. Overall, a great hotel to stay in if you're travelling solo or with friends. Highly recommend!

We spend one night here and in the morning we left early. There is a big construction area next to the hotel so if you prefer to have a long sleep during the week, you might not get it. Other than that, the breakfast was good, the atmosphere is nice and the hotel feels very clean (also the community bathroom).

Room Tip: ask if your room is situated next to the construction area

Charming old world atmosphere. Great location to access all of the downtown attractions and the transport links to the airport. Nice facilities in the hotel. Public computer with some printing facility is a bonus for travellers. An inexpensive guest laundry. The staff are very helpful and the little continental breakfast is a good start to the day.

Run by the same family for a century. Very well located close to the centre of the city and sports stadiums. Both ensuite and shared bathroom rooms. Great deal by big city standards with simple breakfast of toast and coffee included.

Nice little unique hotel with great customer service. A gentlemen served me breakfast and had a nice conversation with me, very nice! I was there for one night and half a day and this was perfect for such a short stay! Great area, right in the heart of downtown!
