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!

A cozy place has a very special view of the city with an affordable price. I really enjoyed that short accommodation :). The owner was very generous and her warm hospitality overcame the cold weather, really thanks.
