Absolutely wonderful stay at the Kingslyn! Stayed for 5 nights the first week of August with 5 others. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by Rati who made us feel right at home. She took us right to our room and explained everything to us. She also makes an amazing breakfast every morning with a made-to-order omelet,... More

Kingslyn is a great B&B in central Cape Town. Please note that a car is advised as it's not exactly walking distance to your main sights like the V&A Waterfront or Long Street. I love the architecture of the house and the fact that so much thought has gone into the decorations. They’ve also got a lovely sitting room with... More

We would have given a better rating had it not been for our last night (a Sunday) that was spoilt by fellow visitors making such a noise after 23h00 that we had to report it to the booking agency. We also reported to manager who explained that six backpackers occupied two first floor rooms above our ground floor room. With... More

The location is great. Its very well maintained. My only suggestion to the management is that they should invest in proper stable internet. Internet connection never stayed on for more than a few minutes. It almost always disconnected. Typical usage: sending emails. BREAKFAST: excellent one. Menu: coffee / tea, fresh juices, cold water, Healthy multi grain toast or white bread,... More

Locals don't always take advantage of the places on our doorstep. So I will definitely recommend this place. Walking distance from city centre, waterfront, Beach. what more can one ask for. Service was excellent. Will come Alain.

Home away from home with exceptionally good service and all the comforts one could want. Staying at the guesthouse opposed a hotel made my business trip far less stressful. what a peaceful environment.

I had a fantastic time here. The hotel is beautiful and so was my room; it was cozy, beautifully decorated, and warm. The staff was very accommodating and checked in with me often about my needs. The hot breakfast was delicious. The hotel is located a bit farther away than my other stay in Greenpoint so my walk was a... More

We just stayed at the Kingslyn for a week and had a wonderful time. The location is close to the waterfront and beach. The breakfast is also a huge high point! All of the rooms are spacious and well decorated. We loved it!

We were very happy with the Kingslyn Guesthouse. The room was comfortable and spacious. The staff were all very friendly. The hot breakfast each morning was also nice. The location was not perfect but still quite good - on a quiet street about a 15-20 minute walk from the V&A Waterfront and a 30-40 minute walk from the city. Just... More
