This was one of the worst hotel experiences Inhave had. I had a room with twin beds. The beds were hard and uncomfortable because the mattresses have seen better days, the pillows were lumpy and flat, the air conditioner was noisy, bright lights shone thru the room all night and having a shower was challenging due to a poor shower...

We were only in Kingston for one night and decided to stay here. The property is a convenient 5 minute walk from the Knutsford Express bus station. The rooms are nothing to brag about, but were kept in good order and were clean. The food at the restaurant wasn't bad, be mindful though if you plan on having a late... More

The Indies Hotel in New Kingston is located on a quiet little street. It's a small and simple establishment, which is how I like to travel. The room was simple, yet clean and everything worked. The staff was very polite and ready to help with whatever I needed. There's a cute little patio, where you can sit and relax, read,... More

The room, bathroom, furniture & décor are from the 60s. The room needs to be gutted. I know times are hard but if you are going to charge $95.00 a night, it needs to be presentable. I wouldn’t sleep! I only stay one night. Management need to do something otherwise it should only be about $20 a night. The pipes... More

We (family with 1 sun, 16 years old) stayed here twice and we felt comfortable in this hotel. It has a really nice patio where you could read or have drinks/food/cocktails. The restaurant offered good cocktails and nice food, although service was - jamaican style - slow. Staff we're friendly, we felt welcome and they gave as great tips about... More

This hotel offers pretty good alue for price around 80 USD per room. There are several spacious rooms with TV and comfortable beds. There is also patio garden where yo can celebrate evening. It is worth to try hotel's cuisine - typical jamaican meals or western meals.

This is an inexpensive local hotel in Kingston proper. If you are into travel, but not a resort type person, this could work for you. They have a restaurant onsite, and the food is good and reasonable. The rooms are small, but clean. There are some pealing paint, due to high humidity, but for the price it is a nice... More

I stayed with a friend at this hotel because we had a flight to catch from Kingston and we want to arrive at the airport relaxed and fresh. Since the first moment the staff did not look very helpful. I have to admit that we arrived at 10am and after 40 minutes they gave us the possibility to check in... More

On the one hand, this is listed as a budget/inexpensive option by Lonely Planet. But the room itself seemed overpriced/expensive for such a simple basic room. However, the staff were extremely helpful with giving us directions for walking to the Bob Marley Museum and restaurant recommendations, and getting good taxi drivers to take us to Port Royal and to Hellshire...
