10/10 Exceptional

You can’t beat this location in terms of being close to the city but not on a high street. We had the mountain and city view room and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone visiting Cape Town. The balcony was perfect for some relaxed mornings or evenings and it felt like you were really on holiday without having to leave the apartment. Staff were also fantastic and friendly 10 day stay. Would definitely staff here again.

Highly recommended
A rare find in a great location, just minutes from long street albeit (steep) uphill. Extremely clean studio style apartment,great comfy bed and nice bathroom, would have loved to have stayed longer. Great view of the city. Was extremely fortunate, and appreciative, of an upgrade from the booked double room. Katrin is a great hostess.

Great room with stunning view and great location
The owner Katrin, was great and very welcoming. She organised my transfer from/to the airport and was very responsive to emails. She was very welcoming and super friendly and left some milk/coffee/muffins and fruit ready for breakfast the next day. The room itself was amazing. Being at the top of a hill, the view of the city and table mountain was spectacular. The room had all needed amenities including free wifi, TV, bathtub and shower, kitchenette, balcony etc. The bed was also very comfortable. The guest house is walking distance (around 10 mins) from Long street with all its shops and cafes. I would definitely go back there. Highly recommended.

Guest house in town

Quite Heaven
Loved it. Katrin was very helpful and hands on, so are her staff, friendly too. Room was very clean, with daily housekeeping. Breakfast was efficient, I like the idea of upfront bfast -nice. Neighbourhood is festive yet quiet, but beautiful surroundings overall. Unfortunately I had poor wifi, which can be improved. Also, no provision of soap which was odd, but I always come prepared so I didn't die. And no satellite channels, maybe that will improve. And I would've liked more water. Also the bathroom light makes a terrible noise when switched on. Honestly, I'd visit again and again and again. It's gorgeous. I'd recommend this place for business and leisure purposes.

Excellent accommodation during Cape Town visit.
Our experience at Upperbloem was outstanding. We contacted Katrin before our arrival to see about coming in a day earlier, and she was happy to oblige, coordinate airport transfer services, etc. She had excellent recommendations during our stay and the room was very comfortable well-stocked. Laundry service was very convenient, efficient, and reasonably priced. As other commenters noted, Upperbloem is at the top of a very steep hill, so we used a taxi service when returning home each evening. The excellent views made walking up and down hills and taking taxis worth it! It was a great location in a historic neighborhood and we found it easy to get around by walking, taking taxis, and the Hop On Hop off bus. When we return to Cape Town, we'll gladly return to Upperbloem for another terrific experience.

Cute little place!
Absolutely incredible view, the manager lives on-site and has a very friendly large dog. It says no breakfast served, but she had some cereal, milk, juice, muffins, coffee and tea in the room so we wouldn't have to stress about breakfast the first morning. Very close to all the popular downtown spots. Good for any ages. Great little place. 10/10 would go back again.

Lovely view, big climb, comfy stay!
Very comfortable and friendly B & B with an incredible view, a delicious included breakfast and a very steep climb! Proprietor very helpful. Rooms all abut the main kitchen area, so can be a bit noisy. Beautiful balcony with views of mountain and water. WiFi in common areas. Pool and maid service.

2/10 Poor

Not a hotel its a guest house
The way it was advertised in the site is a hotel it is just a house with some rooms.There is no air conditioning surroundings are not healthy.Not a safe area.We got a room with a bed and a fan thats all.I better suggest this should be adverstised more like a guest house rather than a hotel
