About the Area
We are located in the best part of town, uptown Kingston in Liguanea. No need for a car. Walk to Dance Jamaica in 3 minutes, the gym, Dominos Pizza, all the major shopping centers of Sovereign Centre and Sovereign North. There you can find everything from banks, restaurants (many open 24/7), cafes, wine bars, clubs, to medical or dental offices, gas stations, pharmacies. Walk to the Bob Marley Museum, art galleries, bookshops, pharmacies, just about everything you need. If you want to go further, there is a bus that runs at the end of the street and within minutes you are at the universities of UTECH and UWI as well as in downtown Kingston should you wish to visit the Institute of Jamaica or the National Library where I often go to do research.
There are several very reasonable restaurants like Takeaways in Orchid Plaza. Sovereign Centre has a food court and movie theater.

My stay at Widcome house was great. Patrica the host is a marvelous being one in a million. I would recommend to stay there any time.
In fact I didnt stay there at all. When I get there at 5am with husband and 1.5 year old baby I was told that the room i paid for in advance was in use so I could eather wait another few hours for the room or go somewhere else. I went somewhere else and I had to pay extra. Never had worst experience. In new place I also found out we werent the only ones it happend to. If you want to spent nice time in Jamaica dont bother booking with Patricia. Not a nice person at all.( paid from saturday till monday , arrived there on sunday morning so paid for extra day just to have few hours sleep which i didnt have).
Pat is a wonderful host, caring and informative. The house is shared with several other guests, with a communal kitchen that has the basics, as well as an upper and lower porch area. Our room was large and comfortable, great pillows. The house is older, but well kept, and the yard has several fruit trees.
