“Best place in Cae Town”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

The best place to stay in Cape Town! Helpful hosts, tidy, nice rooms, a terrace
with an awesome view. We liked to swim in the saltwater pool.
Long street with all the restaurants and shops is just down the hill.

We stayed here for 6 nights and loved it. Katrine is beyond helpful and she has suggestions for tours and plans for every budget and desire. The breakfast is delicious and varied. The views over CT and of table mountain are unparalleled. It is a short walk of 5-7 minutes down the very steep hill to long street and the hustle and bustle. A taxi or car is suggested back up:) taxi from waterfront to upperbloem is under R50 or about $4usd.

If you love busy sight seeing days and quiet wine soaked nights chatting over a view on a lovely patio then this is the place for you.

My friend and I stayed at Upperbloem for a week in late October 2013. We loved absolutely everything about our stay: the clean room, the great service, the fantastic food, and the unbelievable value. Katrin and her staff made us feel right at home. If you're looking for a place to stay in Cape Town, stop looking right now!

We stayed at Upperbloem over Christmas and loved everythng about our stay. The guesthouse has got a very airy, lofty feel about it. It is kept in white colours, the rooms are spacious and very clean, the terrace overlooks the city, the mountain and the sea, and the swimming pool and sun lounges offer a perfect spot to relax above the bustling city. The breakfast is stunning, there is everything you could wish for and more. Katrin, the owner, makes sure you enjoy your stay to the most. We also loved the lively, colourful and authentic neighbourhood of Bo-Kaap, especially over the festive season with the carnival originating here. It is just a short walk to the city and lots of restaurants are in walking distance, too. The next time we're back in CT we'll definitely stay here again as it is absolutely affordable as well.

Best place to stay in Cape Town; close to all important places, opportunity to park our car and clean room. The breakfast service was handsome and the pool bigest during our holiday in South Africa. We got also nice tips even we do not need so much any more.
