Rooms are nice and clean. Maybe a couple too many rooms to the shared bathroom in my case although I know some rooms have their own bathrooms. Bed and breakfast is a misleading title though since breakfast consisted of a bagel or toast, and either coffee or juice. A parking pass is kind of a rip off at $25 as... More

If you are staying for only a night or two this might work for you, as the rooms are small, but if you are staying longer, you might find them too cramped. Not all room shave desks or counter space for your laptop and the TVs are very old. The continental breakfast is only a choice of toasted bread or... More

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. It's near to all the sporting venues, shopping, busses, skytrain and restaurants. You could not be in any better location. The staff are friendly and willing to help and give you information when you need it. The check in process for me was not too successful as I did arrive... More

Beautifully crafted rooms, clean and comfortable. The welcoming staff and family run business was a delight. Accommodating our every need, we will return here again and again! Fantastic! gluten free offerings and great coffee at breakfast, cosy nooks to write and read, close to art galleries and an easy walk to the sky train!!!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Kingston for several nights during my recent stay in YVR. The room was lovely, the shared bathroom always clean, well-stocked with towels, and I never had to wait to use it. As a young woman traveling solo, I felt very safe here. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and Fred... More

From the moment I made my initial enquiries about staying at the Kingston Hotel I was impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. It is a pleasantly old fashioned style hotel but the facilities in the room were good. There was plenty of space for our bags. The bathroom was clean and not cramped. Bathrobes and slippers were...

Basically all is said in the title. The location is excellent to start visiting Vancouver city center by foot. Lots of parking around. Breakfast ok, rooms small but you are just there to sleep. Bathrooms at the floor. I recommend this hotel. You will save some money to be spent in the wonderful restaurants and bars around!

We stayed in the Kingston for three nights before beginning a road trip through the Rockies from Vancouver. I have to say that for the small price we paid, the Kingston is absolutely excellent value for money. Breakfast was included, adequate but not brilliant, and the location was really good...about a 10 minute walk from Gastown and Yaletown, closer still... More

This is a unique property, and I think the property having both "hotel" and "bed and breakfast" in the name sums it up pretty well. There is a lobby and the appearance looks like a hotel, but the rooms are bedrooms only with shared bathrooms. my room was small but not cramped. there was a full bed, along with a... More
