I enjoyed my stay at Dolce's apartment. The place was warmly decorated and spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped. A good bed also, not unimportant as I stayed for almost a month. The location is ideal if you want to explore Kingston. Dolce was the perfect host, just a telephone call away if we needed something. The internet worked great. No complaints at all.
This flat is comfortable; well situated and within easy reach of most of the attractions. Bob Marley Museum is a short walk away, as is Lightning’s (Usain Bolt ‘Tracks and Records’) restaurant. Devon House; Emancipation park and local shopping (Mega Mart) all accessible. Close by too, is the Knutsford express bus station with routes to all parts of the island.
The utterly charming, highly efficient and ultimate host with the welcoming smile, Dolce, will answer all your questions, direct you to interesting ‘must sees’ and arrange for your pick-up and transport to the flat. Your host will also, keep in contact with you by the supplied mobile or via email, to check if you’re ok or have any concerns. If your stay is more than a few days, you'll probably need to top-up at a mobile outlet.
The curiously named 'On Time Taxi' service's number is saved in the mobile for those no-so-close destinations. On one occasion I called, the taxi was outside the flat within the minute.
As I said - curious.
The obvious explanation is, they're parked very close to Devon Cl most times, as I witnessed whilst out and about.
I used the local buses to get around and to downtown Kingston.
Any pre-trip questions will be answered promptly by Dolce; any adjustments will be corrected – if needs be.
The flat is as pictured: clean, spacious enough for two, well equipped with cooking facilities. Shelves of books for your perusal - on the odd chance that you've forgotten to pack/load up your reading selection.
I certainly appreciated the large multi-speed ceiling fan over the bed to combat those warm sticky nights; also the free-standing one in the seating/dining area. Didn't miss not have AC.
WiFi is available - just. Sufficient for checking emails and very light browsing - although there may be plans to improve the speed.
With the flat being close to Kingsway, there is SOME traffic noise, but not enough to be a deal-breaker. More importantly its generally a safe neighbourhood and the flat is secure.
So, the choice is yours. I'd certainly book again when I'm in Kingston - provided I can get a slot...this place is popular.
Dolce was a most gracious and helpful host.
Good location and property.
However, she overbooked one of three nights contracted and you just don't do this.
It was the second of 2 bookings with Airbnb where the hosts had overbooked .
One starts to get the feeling that these were due to hosts being offered longer stays for the contracted date and bumping.
We stayed at Dolce for 5 nights and it was brilliant.. Dolce is an amazing person which makes it even better.. The apartment is cosy has everything you need and the location is perfect. Would definitely go back to visit. And highly recommend ☺
The apartment is located in a rather quiet and, more important, secure area. It's rather small but enough for 1 or 2 people, clean and with the kitchen well equipped; I think that it's convenient for the price.
The only little malus is that it wasn't possible to completely close all the windows, and that they have no mosquitoes net, so it's possible that you find one or two inside (no big deal of course).
Dolce was very kind and helpful (also helped me with groceries on my arrival) and all in all it was a positive experience and I would go back again.
Dolce made us feel very welcome, and was available by phone whenever we needed some advice or help. She took us to the local supermarket the evening we arrived, sorted us out with a taxi firm to use and provided us with a local phone.
The neighbourhood was safe enough we walked out to eat on most evenings and walked to Devon House and Independence Park during the day.
The apartment was fine for two people, comfortable,airy, spacious and easy to use.
Charming little flat near to Devon House
Dolce was very friendly and helpful from the very first minute. On the day of my arrival she even called to make sure I was okay and reassured me, that she was going to pick me up from the public bus station.
Picking me up went smoothly and on the way to my new accomodation she even was so conscious to stop at a supermarket so I could buy some water etc. (I would not have thought of doing so :) )
Dolce’s apartment is a charming little flat in a safe neighbourhood. It is really nicely furnished (you can definitely tell that Dolce knows about interior design) which I liked a lot. It is just a couple of minutes to walk to the famous Devon House and the Bob Marley Museum. You can also reach Usain Bolt’s Restaurant Tracks and Records (one of my favourite spots), the public bus station and a huge super market by foot easily.
The whole apartment was very clean and wifi was working. Since the apartment is close to a street people that are not used to big city noises might find it hard going to bed early. I personally was sleeping like a baby, since i found the bed superb and the fan was blowing a nice breeze :)
As said Dolce is a fantastic host. Always available via phone should you have any questions. She even provided me with a map of Kingston where she had marked some of the most interesting things to see and was helping me out with the number of a reliable driver.
When going back to Kingston i would stay at Dolce’s apartmant again and I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.
Dolce was a great host! She was easy to contact & very helpful. The place inside is as it looks in pics (although outside looks a bit run down). It's secure with bars (but no security) walking distance to groceries & other attractions. My only problem was slow internet connection but Dolce quickly got me a temporary solution when I complained. The lack of a/c - could be an issue for some people but she has several fans & a mosquito net for protection at night. Would stay again!
Dolce was awesome! I was not new to Jamaica but very new to Kingston. Kingston is major city and I was paranoid to travel with a baby in tow. She gave me a peace of mind. She escorted us from the airport, took us to the grocer and gave us a local mobile. I do not think I would have went on with my travel plans without her. She remained in contact during our stay to make sure we were comfortable. The area was very safe and even though the reviews said noisy traffic I disagree. Great stay!
This was the perfect place to stay in Kingston. It was clean and comfortable, with a very comfy bed. There was a supermarket nearby, and I found it very easy to get around. I walked to the Bob Marley Museum, Emancipation Park and many other places nearby. It is in a very safe area. There are good restaurants not to far away. Dolce was the best hostess ever, nothing was too much trouble for her. I highly recommend it and would quite happily stay there again.
