This Hotel is perfect if you want to be downtown in the middle of the action. The location is perfect, the staff is extremely nice and the place is nice, too. We were there for a week and can only recommend it.

There is an European feel to the hotel...some of that is good, some comes at a price. We opted for a room with its own bathroom. The room was small, but it was clean. Downside is that it faced an alley with early morning construction noise, but avoided the all-night noise of facing busy Richards Street. We were there during... More

This hotel is near the station (City center) of Canada Line, so you can get there by the Sky train from the airport. In addition, many sightseeing places can be reached by bus or Sky train near the hotel.

First rate staff who even recharged,my iPad and cellphone when my adaptor failed to connect. Would certainly visit again. Thanks gentlemen you were lovely to a very elderly single... More

The Kingston is a very charming and cosy hotel located between two new buildings in the middle of downtown. It's perfectly located because you can easily discover downtown Vancouver by foot. The hotel employees are very nice and courteous and create a family environment! Our room was comfortable with a clean bathroom. The breakfast was simple but it ensures that... More

Most other hotels in Vancouver were booked for the night but we got a room here - was way better than expected - small, cute and fun. Great location for shopping and shows. Room and hotel were very clean - much better than many hotels we've stayed at. Construction next door was a little noisy in the morning but Would... More

This is a very simple hotel for a neat price. I would however look around for others but if you don't specifically look for a bit of luxury and room size (they have bigger rooms in any case), it is an option. The hotel is located in the centre of Vancouver just two blocks away from the metro line from... More

If you are on a budget you could do worse than this centrally located hotel. Although there are shared bathrooms they were always spotless and accessible. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is basic but ok. There is a bar attached to the hotel.

I've stayed at the Kingston going back over 20 years ago - it's been a favorite because its always beeb an easy on the budget place in a fantastic downtown Van location. It's 'grown up' and has been refurbished into a very cozy, friendly, quiet, clean, ideal location 'pensione' style hotel. If what you want is a comfy bed/nice linens,... More

For $115 a night (taxes included) it was not a bad experience. Tough to find a hotel in downtown Vancouver for less than $220 per night, so the Kingston is kind of a steal. Had my own room but shared the bathroom. It is relatively a small hotel, but well-maintained. Strong vintage smell in the hotel hallways. I would come... More

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
