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!

After a busy couple of days travelling, it was great to arrive at the Upperbloem guesthouse, where I was greeted by Katrin. What a lovely peaceful place, Katrin is a fantastic host & I thoroughly recommend a stay there...so much so I’m already planning to stay again later this year.

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.
