Kingslyn Guesthouse proves why you should ignore all the chain hotels in Cape Town and go with something locally owned. I stay in hotels around 100 nights per year, and by far, this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The big chain hotels will charge you for internet, charge you insane prices for wine and snacks, charge you for early check in and late check out, and of course, breakfast is only "free" for elite members. Not at Kingslyn. You get all of this for free and the rate is easily a half of the price of many of the hotel chains. The guesthouse is tastfully decorated, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the breakfast buffet was absolutely delicious, and the owners of the guesthouse are extremely helpful and will make you feel taken care of. I can't recommend this guesthouse highly enough.
