We liked our stay, the other reviews felt accurate and useful. Our thoughts: Plus: location, right where you wanna be friendly staff Minus: small breakfast (bagels/toast, juice, coffee) room smelled aweful construction just next to the hotel

This hotel is in a good location, it's a little cheaper than other places downtown, some of the staff were really friendly, and it has a 'staying with grandma' kind of atmosphere (which I liked). However, it's called a bed and breakfast and I was disappointed that there was no breakfast, it was only a bagel or toast with coffee... More

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. In the heart of the pricy Vancouver business district this hotel is well appointed and we'll priced with excellent service. We took the shared bathroom room but everything was well laid out so we had no problems with at. Will definitely stay there again.

If you are looking for location,it is great. Wifi, not really available as advertises. And the breakfast is pathetic. ONLY bagel or toast...period, ok with orange slice 'garnish'. Nothing else, not cereal, muffin, yogurt.etc....celiac,gluten intolerant...stay away, or anyone who actually wants a REAL breakfast. Pathetic to be included in the price and not remotely what I would consider breakfast. Wifi... More

Found this place on a busy wknd when Vancouver seemed full. Well located downtown and wonderfully priced! Excellent staff/service. Rooms, while small, are very clean and so are the shared washrooms. Yes I did say it has a European vibe. A few rooms do have a private bath. Visited in June 2014 during construction so save your visit for next... More

The Kingston is a solid option for those on a budget visiting Vancouver. I paid $75/night for a single room, twin bed, with shower and toilet down the hall. Wifi and continental breakfast are included--I didn't have breakfast, but the wifi is rock solid (my portable radio's batteries quit and I played the BBC World Service on my iPad over... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night pre-cruise to Alaska. The hotel was ideal for us because of its location and price. After arriving at Vancouver airport, we took the Canada line train to Vancouver City Station and walked to the hotel which is located on Richards Street near Robson Street. We also walked from the hotel to Canada... More

booked by phone - wasn't told that there was no toilet or shower. Upon arrival, changed rooms and was charged an extra 35.00 a night! Too late to book somewhere else. Spoke to the manager who told us that he couldn't do anything!! Bad hotel, bad management. I'd never go back..(besides what I've said, I also wouldn't stay because it... More

Close to shops, transport & easy walking to Gastown, Cruise Terminal, Vancouver Lookout. Lovely breakfast served in a cosy setting - congenial to intermingling with other guests. If you don't mind sharing bathroom down the hall & a smallish room, it was great value. I enjoyed it.
