Small but beautiful room with fantastic view over the city. Breakfast and service was good. On top of the hill it was very windy at night. The pool was clean and we enjoyed it at our stay. Thanks for all.

We enjoyed four nights at Upperbloem and found the spacious mountain view apartment was perfect for our needs. We were able to cook our supper. It is a very steep hill up to the guest house, but despite being in our 70's my sister and I took it slowly and managed fine. We walked back from the bus station for the hop on hop off bus, and once from the Waterfront, but most people probably use Uber. Katrin was a gracious host welcoming us with coffee, crackers and fruit, and offering us wine/beer or soft drinks one evening which was much appreciated. She also gave me a sewin kit when I needed to mend something. We did not try the pool, as we got in just in time to cook dinner, play scrabble and go to bed each evening. There are not two beds, but one of us slept on the couch with an extra duvet which worked well. South Africa has a "load shedding" system in place right now, which is rotating power cuts, so you may have no power for a couple of hours at a time... it happened some evenings at the all accommodations we stayed at. Katrin warned us via email. Our room had a table on a little patio with a view of the mountain over the wall.

good location, good place, nice balcony, good view, just perfect. Walk into the city very short, even a swimmingpool, which we forgot to use. The location is fun, the maleisian aerea, safe during the day, take a Uber back.

Well appointed and spotlessly clean apartments in a quiet neighborhood, yet just a few blocks from shops and cafes. The views are phenomenal. Katrin was always on hand to help, and creates a warm and welcoming environment. I'm looking forward to my next visit! Highly recommended.

We stayed at Upperbloem for 4 nights on a Soith African road trip. Good location, close to downtown, table mountain, lions head, signal hill. Katrin was great and very accommodating, nothing was too much. Thanks 10/10! Definately a place to stay in you are in Capetown.
