About
Description
Situated in the historic Malay Quarter on Signal Hill - just steps away from the city centre - with views over the city and harbour and Table Mountain. Upperbloem Guesthouse & Apartments is an oasis in the More city - quiet with a large saltwater pool & pooldeck, and garden to relax. We are only 5 -10 minutes walk away from the city centre, Greenmarket Square, Longstreet, many cafes and Restaurants, and shops. It is a 10minutes drive to the beautiful Camps Bay and Clifton beaches. Guests have free Wifi, secure street parking. We are a family run guesthouse with a personal touch and an emphasis on privacy - so you can have a relaxing holiday. Ask us about tours and recommendations, we are always happy to help. Less
