Ideal place to stay if you want to be central, with lovely views of the mountain and just a short walk into the city. Very warm welcome and very comfortable accommodation. Even the weather was kind to us.

the guesthouse is lovely, katrin was a great host and even the security person was friendly. The room looked exactly as described. The location's good, situated near to the main tourist attractions (such as waterfront, table mountain etc) and we definitely felt safe during our stay. Really enjoyed it there and would recommend it to everyone

I had a beautifully furnished room with excellent views from a superb balcony, well stocked kitchenette and very clean bathroom. Upperbloem is in a great location, very calm and quiet and above the bustle of downtown Cape Town, which is within walking distance (it is a steep climb back up to the hotel).

The hostess was extremely helpful and expeditious when my husband and I got locked outside the balcony. It was a rather funny scenario, and all was forgotten. However, the hostess felt so bad about the situation that she had given us...
