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.
Very charming host who gave us some fruit and wine when we arrived. Very clean appartement with a pool on the hill. Also little supermarket and some restaurants nearby. Waterford is reachable by foot in one houre. Its a heavy walk up
My son and I had a lovely vacation staying at Upperbloems. Beautiful views from the place and pool area. The service couldn't have been better, the cleaning staff did a wonderful job and the landlady Katrin was so nice and helpful with whatever we had questions about. Easy carpark outside the guesthouse. We would definitely stay there again given the possibility!
We had looked at several hotels in Cape Town before deciding to book an apartment at Upperbloem Steet . What a great decision Katrin the owner is such a lovely person.....patient, caring and very generous. There was always an offer of coffee, wine, beer or just a chat about the area or where to go. A very interesting lady who genuinely cares about her customers. The apartment was everything you needed on holiday. Clean, well stocked and fab views of table mountain and the harbour, lovely swimming pool, near restaurants and bars and safe!! So glad we didn’t stay in a corporate type hotel, we would never have experienced the local knowledge and vibe in Bo Kaap and surrounding areas. I would recommend this accommodation in a heartbeat, just book it you will not regret it.
