This hotel offers great customer service. Clean rooms. Needs to be renovated as this hotel appears to be very old. Service level is comparable to the hilton. I was briefly harrassed by one of the security guards and subsequently reported it to the management. I would definitely stay here again. They offer complimentary breakfast and the wifi was pretty decent... More

This is my second visit to the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and l have to say this is a fine hotel in Central Kingston. From a vantage point in Emancipation Park, it towers over Kingston and looks very impressive. The check in process was very smooth and the staff very friendly. I had my room key in a few minutes and... More

This hotel was a good option in Kingston, good customer service, excellent food specially the dinner in the pool. The room is comfortable and big. The only think that I didn't like was the bathroom, it was so small and uncomfortable, and I think the breakfast should have more options for tourists. In general the hotel was good.

This hotel is ok, not completely updated, but in process. The staff was excellent, the ambience is great, lobby area excellent. Love the free breakfast, great blend of island traditional food, and traditional. The hotel is across from Emancipation Park, a great place to walk or work out.

I was pretty disappointed with the Pegasus given its international reputation, however, there were one good point to the hotel. Check in was very easy and the lady behind the counter was extremely nice (that's where it ended)......the room itself was similar to that of a hotel 6 room, maybe a little less, street noise is pretty loud ....

I was quite disappointed with The Pegasus given its reputation. After a 9 hour flight from the UK, we were extremely disappointed when we saw our rooms. We were given unrenovated rooms. The decor was extremely dated. The colour scheme and furniture were awful - very 70s. The room had not been cleaned to a high standard prior to our... More

This hotel is well placed in a 'relatively' safe area of Kingston (during the day). The reception area, bar, restaurant and out door areas are very clean and functional. It all goes down a little when you get to your room. My room is a little tired with the flat pack furniture being dated and in my case shabby and... More

all levels of Staff at the hotel, with whom I interacted, were very pleasant and most helpful. I was particularly impressed with the courtesy extended by the floor/cleaning staff. The location is excellent considering that it is opposite the phenomenal Emancipation Park and walking distance from some exhilarating nightlife. Breakfast was always excellent. Having said that I must mention that... More

I stayed at the Pegasus for 4 nights last week. The staff sells this hotel. They are polite, friendly and always willing to help their guests. You really feel the warmth of the Jamaican hospitality here, from the bell hop to the reception supervisors. I would really like to thank Meika (aka Elvera), the restaurant morning supervisor,for starting my days... More
