I love the Kingston. I will come back forever! Great price, great people, fantastic rooms. Lovely! I come to Vancouver on occasion for business and pleasure and the Kingston is my go-to place. Very European, quaint and wonderful :-)

I stay here often for its prime downtown location and good price point. The staff are very friendly and since I am out of the hotel most of the day, the construction has never bothered me. The hotel is old, but recently renovated with new mirrors, vanity glass, mattresses, and a bit of paint. Having a desk and a sink in each room is one of the best parts for me as I can work and do my nightly routine without going to the shared bathroom. Internet is provided and usually pretty good, I've only had one night with slowness issues. It's very secure and safe which is especially great given its downtown location. My only reservations are the accent pillows, which are a bit sketchy sometimes as are the comforters, however the pillows, sheets, and mattress are super comfy and I have always slept well here. As others have said, the breakfast is so-so, so I usually eat out. This is my go-to hotel in Vancouver, so I hope you enjoy it as much as me!

We booked this hotel for 4 days as it suited our requirements and budget. It was a lovely experience staying here. Our room was great, fully furnished and with modern amenities. It was impeccably cleaned and fresh bed linens and upholstery were in place. In the bathroom toiletries and towels were provided. The service was good; the staff was efficient and friendly. Overall I would rate it very good and certainly recommend it at this price point.

We were here in September and stayed at this hotel for 5 days. It was a great experience and we had a lovely stay here. Our room was highly comfortable and the décor was pleasant. The bathroom was spotless and fresh towels were provided. The highlight was its great location for which I would totally recommend it. The service was good and the staff was very helpful. Based on our experience we would certainly recommend it.

stayed here for 2 nights, the place is great and the location is excellent and near all the downtown attractions and very near from the canada line downtown vancouver station.
there's a place for luggage storage in the lobby.
the rooms are nice and clean.
the breakfast is very simple and the staff people are friendly and welcoming.
one of the best prices you can get in downtown vancouver.

Kingston is convenient to downtown attractions and Stanley Park. A 2 block walk from the Canada Line downtown Vancouver station makes the Kingston convenient to the airport.

Fred kindly checked us into our room when we arrived before noon with hopes to just store luggage.

Room Tip: Hotel is currently bracketed by a large construction project active during day hours, but is inactiv...

This little gem can't be beat for the budget traveller. Stayed for a nearby conference, so adjacent construction not a problem as I was out of the room all day. Complimentary breakfast just coffee/tea, toast and a piece of fruit, which suited me fine. Rooms and beds small but clean, with an old-fashioned style (radiator heat!). Think of a retro YW/YMCA. Shared bathrooms very clean, never had a problem getting in to the toilet or the shower. Lovely front desk staff. Adjacent tavern has great food and drink at a reasonable price. Will stay here again.
