We spent the first and the last night of our Jamaica trip at City View Hotel and were very happy with our choice: A beautiful place in the hills above Kingston with superb views on the city, to the sea behind and the surrounding hills, very quiet, away from the hustle of the city. And when we had an issue... More

The Bents, the owners of this magnificent... More

We spent a couple of nights at the City View Hotel and felt like royalty. The staff and owners were extremely nice and welcomed us as though we were lost family members. the view and solitude is second to none and the cost was very affordable. A Jamaican holiday is not completed until you have spent at least a couple... More

When we got to Kingston we were so glad we didn't book a hotel right smack in the middle of the city. The drive up to the hotel wasn't to long and we were rewarded with an amazing view of Kingston from the hillside! They weren't kidding when they oicked the name cityview! It's a lovely place, nice and clean,... More
