Upper Bloem is quite simply the best place i've stayed. The room was perfect with amazing views. It was cleaned everyday and Katirin was an amazing host. When i come back to Cape Town, Upper Bloem Guesthouse will be my choice of accomodation again 10/10

I stayed in a room for two people, it had everything I needed. The pool area was lovely. Location is perfect, close by to basically everything. The neighbourhood is very quiet and it felt safe. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable.

We stayed at 8 Upper Bloem St for 5 nights in early September 2018, prior to a game viewing tour of Botswana. I can highly recommend this guest house and apartment complex. The location is great, an easy walk to downtown Cape Town, and the apartment had everything we needed. We prepared our own meals some evenings, and other nights ate out, based mostly on the recommendations in their guide to renters. There are some small convenience stores with a limited selection in the neighbourhood, but the Spar (Cape Quarter) at the bottom of the hill is very well stocked. This building is in the colourful Bo-Kaap neighbourhood near the top of a steep hill. It is a Muslim area, and the local mosque will call the faithful to prayer each morning at 5:45 AM. This served as our alarm clock

We stayed for 2 nights in this great apartment a five minute drive from The Waterfront. The apartment was clean & spacious & it had a fantastic view from the balcony over the city. Our host Katrin was very helpful & made us very welcome. We would not have swapped this location & the great view for the most expensive hotel in Cape Town. Highly recommended.
