i booked this hotel for two days and my flight got cancelled due to bad weather. i informed the hotel and agoda. both agreed to amend my reservation to a later date and credit the prepaid voucher.
when i arrived i got a quiet room at the back side of the building. unfortunately there was no signal. the friendly lady told me that only rooms facing the pool have a signal. after talking to the manager he agreed to have me transferred to one of those rooms. all roms in the kingston are the same: basically furnished and very clean. there is also a fridge provided and two cups of nescafe can be made without charge.
the hotel has also a restaurant and a pool. in my opinion the location is good because it is free from flooding (a huge problem in cdo) and the compact sm mall is just minutes away. even downtown can be reached in ten minuted by taxi or jeepney.
there is a gravel road leading to the kingston from the highway. the last 20 meters are muddy. i also believe that the location off the highway is better because the hotel is more quiet than most hotels located in downtown or right at the highway
