The best place to stay in Cape Town! Helpful hosts, tidy, nice rooms, a terrace with an awesome view. We liked to swim in the saltwater pool. Long street with all the restaurants and shops is just down the hill.

My friend and I stayed at Upperbloem for a week in late October 2013. We loved absolutely everything about our stay: the clean room, the great service, the fantastic food, and the unbelievable value. Katrin and her staff made us feel right at home. If you're looking for a place to stay in Cape Town, stop looking right now!

Best place to stay in Cape Town; close to all important places, opportunity to park our car and clean room. The breakfast service was handsome and the pool bigest during our holiday in South Africa. We got also nice tips even we do not need so much any more.

This was my second time in Upperbloom. Katrin, the owner of the place, makes you feel at home the very moment you arrive. The location in Bo Kaap facing the Waterfront with a view of the Table Mountain from the breakfast terrace is just amazing. There is a very nice swimming pool there and you can park your car in...

Really good-value inn. It surprises me with a so nice rooms, view and service. The owner was waiting me when I arrived, with some food, out of regular eating hour. She helped me a lot, since my one-day delayed flight (and she didn't charge me, even with my booking), and wake up really early to prepare a breakfast before I...
