The room was actually much nicer than I had anticipated after reading other reviews of the rooms looking dated. I took the advice of other reviewers and got a high floor "club" room- those rooms have been nicely renovated. A small breakfast and even smaller happy hour h'ors d'oeuvres were included. It was called a jr suite but it was... More

I stayed here while on a 3 week business trip to Kingston (cant believe anyone would come here as a tourist). The Pegasus is one of only three business hotels in the New Kingston District. The lack of competiton lets them get away with high costs and poor quality servic The hotel itself is old and dated. The rooms are... More

As mentioned in other reviews the staff were neither friendly nor rude. The hotel lobby is nice and roomy, the gift shops were good (better than the nonexistant at the Courtleigh). Breakfast was good with much variety and was included in my rate but would have cost $19 US. The rooms are very dated (old) but clean. The hairdryer was... More

I've worked in Kingston a lot over the last year. Don't go there expecting a welcoming culture - you're not so much welcomed with open arms as loaded arms. It's very sad, but it's true; Kingston can be a dangerous town. The Pegasus hotel is a safe oasis in a town where (sorry to be necessarily blunt) as a white... More

Kingston is not a tourist town and after reading about all the murders we were relieved to feel safe in the Pegasus. It;ll cost you - but for Kingston it's probably worth it. If you haven't been to Jamaica before, don't expect a service orientated culture. As a rule they seem to proud to be friendly, let alone nice and... More

I usually stay at the Hilton when I am in Jamaica on business, however it was booked out and so I got room at the Pegasus instead reluctantly, but willing to give it a try. Upon checkin, I noticed how long they took to process the person in front of me. They apologized and processed my check-in a bit quicker... More

We have just spent a week at the Kingston whilst working over there. I am surprised it seems to be rated 3 star, I would have thought certainly 4, possibly 5. The room was large and very clean. Bathrooms are small but OK. The pool bar and the surrounding pool are excellent. A great barby on the Sunday night. Everything... More

On our most recent trip to Jamaica my wife and I spend 4 nights at the Pegasus and 2 nights at the Courtleigh which is located directly next door. We also visited the Hilton, just to be informed. OK here you have it.... The Courtleigh is smaller hotel and overall the rooms are bit more modern and feels cleaner. The... More
