We travelled to South Africa for our honeymoon in January 2016. Our flights to Cape Town were cancelled and the travel was awfull so it was a great relief to have someone waiting for us at the airport and to discover this great oasis in the heart of Cape Town. Katrin really made us feel welcome! The place was superb... More

The apartment was superb, amazing views of the mountain and the city. Kitchen well stocked with pots and pans etc. so we could make a few meals. Katrin was so helpful and even provided a mobile for us to use while we stayed there. Go for the apartment with the city and mountain view, you won't regret it.

A lovely place to stay in Cape Town! Central, steps away from Bo-Kaap and the downtown. Plenty of corner shops, cafes, and restaurants around. A supermarket is within walking distance. Katrin is a great hostess! We arranged an airport pickup and drop-off with her - the price was great and the service was very reliable. Katrin greeted us upon her... More

A very comfortable and pleasant stay in a very convenient location. Will certainly stay at Upperbloem on our next visit and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody seeking this style of accomodation. A personal word of thanks to Katrin who did everything possible to make our stay a happy one.

A lovely studio in a great location for seeing Cape Town. Katrin was so helpful and the pool area was great. Only slight niggle was that we could not get Wi-fi in the studio and had to go to the pool area, a bit inconvenient at night time. However, a great place and we would definitely stay there again.

After Staying at Upperbloem Guesthouse at least five times, I can truly say that Upperbloem has become a home away from home for me. I often travel to Cape Town and every time I return to Upperbloem, I feel immediately comfortable and relaxed. Being at Upperbloem feels like being a part of the Bo-Kaap Community and experiencing a piece of... More

Stopped here due to previous favourable reviews. Previous reviews appear correct, I arrived very dehydrated for 2 nights stay over so did not do as much as expected nor use facilities extensively so cannot add anything

The rooms are spacious and clean. The pool area a delight in summer. Walking distance or cheap Uber from anything and all you want to do in Cape Town. Our host was very friendly and accommodating. Wi-Fi did not work everywhere, but at the price this is a small issue.
