Wonderful stay at Upperbloem”

The incredible views of Table Mountain and the city, the comfy bed and the great bathroom

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Upperbloem and will absolutely stay there again when we next go to Cape Town. Katrin is a great host and was very accommodating, the guesthouses are well equipped and laid out, and the area is very safe and quite, yet just a short walk from the downtown core.

Not enough time”

view, modernity of apartment and location

Sadly, we only had one night in our apartment. We would have loved to stay longer. On a warm/sunny day one could really make the most of the lovely balcony offering a great view over the harbour (with a lounger on offer, as well as a small table and chairs). However, it was a little chilly this time of the year to enjoy it to the full. The apartment is newly renovated, clean and modern with basic kitchen utensils available, a kettle, microwave and toaster for use as well. What we really appreciated was the fact there was a coffee plunger with ground coffee available to make a nice pot of freshly brewed coffee in the morning. A treat and a nice touch, as this is not often found in Guest Houses, hotels etc with only instant coffee provided. Another great touch, was the use of a spare mobile phone to make local calls. Great if you're on roaming. One point: Just be aware that Bloem St continues on to a pretty steep road where you will find Upperbloem - when you turn into Bloem St off the M62 you will come to a kind of dead end - you have to dog leg with a right into Lion St, left into Upper Pepper St, right into Sachs Circus and just around the bend you will find Upperbloem on the right - if you don't have a GPS you may get lost. We did, but asked for directions and found it. Thank you Kristen. We will definitely be back.
