Owner was extremely helpful & hospitable, which made our stay very enjoyable! View from balcony is superb, cant get anything better than that. Rooms are very clean and pleasant.
If ur driving, don't leave anything in the car when parked along the road outside.

We were very happy here--our room was comfortable, breakfast was delicious (quite a spread!), and we enjoyed having access to the kitchen in the afternoons and evenings. Green Market Square was about a 10 minute walk, and it took us a little less than 45 minutes to walk to V&A Waterfront. The view was fantastic (though it wasn't always fun driving up the big hill on the narrow road without good visibility). The only thing that was less than desirable was that the doors were very loud and slammed a lot. I think that could be solved by replacing the doors or hanging signs reminding people to shut doors quietly rather than letting them slam closed.

The biggest plus of this place is definitely the view. Location is also great, walking distance within most attractions in Cape Town city center. But even as local South Africans we did not walk to the city center after dark. But taxis are cheap so that should not stop you.
Breakfast was lovely and Katrin very helpful. The shared kitchen has everything you need (couldn't find a microwave though), but if others cook you will smell it in your bedroom. Only minus was the on-street parking in a small, slightly dodgy, street.
Would definitely recommend Upperbloem, good value for money

I really can't rate this place highly enough. I arrived late at night so couldn't really get a feel of the area but the next morning when I stepped out on the balcony and had Table Mountain right in front of me I was gob smacked. Katrin couldn't be any friendlier or helpful if she tried!!! Table Mountain's 15 mins away, the waterfront's about the same distance and Long Street's a 5 min walk.......you couldn't ask for a better location. I need to back to Cape Town and I know this is the place I'll be staying.

The host was very hospitable. I was only able to stay for one night, but had a wonderful experience of the view of table mountain while having breakfast.
There's an area that we drove past, near the lodging that seems a little rough. But We hired a car to get there, so we didn't have problems with the location

The Upperbloem is the best hotel I have ever stayed in: Very nice and helpful owner and staff, modern and nice rooms, good breakfast, well-equipped kitchen and a great view on the Table Mountain and the city.

We enjoyed to stay at Upperbloem. The owner was very nice and we had a great room. The breakfast was also good and even if you want to have an early breakfast most is available.

The only negative part we can come on is that you have to drive/walk up a very, very steep road to get to Bloem Street. But that's only a minor thing.
