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 most days, and we had breakfast watching the sun rise on Table Mountain. Since walking after dark is discouraged throughout Cape Town (take a taxi after dark, the), we soon transitioned to an early to bed, early to rise routine. We felt safe in this neighbourhood. The apartment was well equipped, the bed was comfortable, the view spectacular, and it had everything we needed. Katrin, the manager of the building quickly responded to emails when we were arranging our stay. We would happily return to Upper Bloem.

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.

Upperbloem is located in Bo-Kaap, in close proximity to down-town Cape town with plenty of fantastic restaurants. The hotel doesn't offer breakfast, but there is a small kitchenet with all equipment to keep breakfast fresh. The room I stayed in had a perfect view over Cape town and Table mountain.
