Small but beautiful room with fantastic view over the city. Breakfast and service was good. On top of the hill it was very windy at night. The pool was clean and we enjoyed it at our stay. Thanks for all.
We enjoyed four nights at Upperbloem and found the spacious mountain view apartment was perfect for our needs. We were able to cook our supper. It is a very steep hill up to the guest house, but despite being in our 70's my sister and I took it slowly and managed fine. We walked back from the bus station for the hop on hop off bus, and once from the Waterfront, but most people probably use Uber. Katrin was a gracious host welcoming us with coffee, crackers and fruit, and offering us wine/beer or soft drinks one evening which was much appreciated. She also gave me a sewin kit when I needed to mend something. We did not try the pool, as we got in just in time to cook dinner, play scrabble and go to bed each evening. There are not two beds, but one of us slept on the couch with an extra duvet which worked well.
South Africa has a "load shedding" system in place right now, which is rotating power cuts, so you may have no power for a couple of hours at a time... it happened some evenings at the all accommodations we stayed at. Katrin warned us via email.
Our room had a table on a little patio with a view of the mountain over the wall.
We stayed at Katrin’s place for 3 nights. Katrin and her team are very friendly and helpful. The apartment had everything we needed including a kitchen. The Appartement was clean. It is located very good with a good view. We recommend a car, cause the way to the guesthouse is very steep. The first 2 nights we stayed at a smaller room which was also ok. But for the last night Katrin gave us a new and better room. The room is amazing!! You have a huge balcony and a view over the whole town. It was unbelievable! Thank you again! During the night you here some prayers, but we didn’t mind.
Brilliant Hotel with a really lovely Host Katrin. Perfect View from Room Balcony as well as great and clean Rooms. If you need something Katrin is there to help out. Our stay in Cape Town Couldn´t be better.
A very pleasant stay indeed. I would happily recommend Upperbloem. The host was very welcoming and the communication was great. They organised an airport pickup which went smoothly and was also enjoyable. The room was very comfortable and super clean, with everything I needed and many thoughtful touches. Get the rooms with the amazing city views if you can - what a vista!
