My stay at Upperbloem hotel was perfect:    minimalist design of the room coupled with a minimalist price, the amazing view over the city, the proximity to Table Mountain (5 min by car) and the friendly and flexible staff. Highly recommended."

And finally, THANK YOU
for "forcing" me stay at room 1. It is really amazing... I have been having a hard time in getting out of it, really. The best room I have EVER been in. I am sure I will be coming back! Rita, Portugal  5July2009

I had a ball  - 08 May 2008  
I came there to get away from the hectic Joburg life and I did just that. The area though was a bit overcrowded for my liking. But no complaint about that. Overall I had a ball of experience for CT as it was my first visit there....

A little piece of the REAL Cape - 05 May 2008  
It was lovely - the Bo Kaap is truly unique and it was much better than staying in a faceless run of the mill hotel. And the view was truly amazing!!!!

Fantastic views of City, harbour and mountain. Ideal and easy access to all amenities. Will recommend to all friends.

Great view, very helpful and lovely owners & staff!, March 29 2008
Reviewer: Adelheid (Germany)
This place made my holiday! The owner, Kathrin, was really helpful in every sense. Booking process and confirmation was simple and quick; rooms are very spacious, I had a wonderful balcony with a great view, veranda with pool and deck chairs, fully equipped kitchen with cereals, milk, coffee and a wide range of fruits. Everything very clean and secure! I stayed there for 10 days and met lovely guests and enjoyed every single day of my stay. Would love to go back straight away.
Only the taxi drivers had some trouble finding their way up there through some one-way-streets, but a copy of the area does help :-)
Absolutely 100 % recommendable and best value for money so close to the city centre!

Lovely - 25 March 2008
We had a lovely time staying there. The view was breath-taking. Every morning we got fresh towels and the apartment was always kept clean. Thanks Catherine and Udo for having us!

Cape Town ist eine schoene Stadt und auch Upperbloem ist sehr schoen und romantik.

Great stay, great value!,12 July 2008

Stay was amazing. Room was squeaky clean everyday, very modern and stylish amenities. Views were spectacular - especially in the evenings!

Totally breathtaking! ,07 July 2008

Even though we spent the week-end there during Winter, the views from the B&B were still really beautiful. The room that we occupied overlooked Cape Town and its harbour, and at night the view of the city lights were totally breathtaking! We enjoyed our short stay there and found the place to be a relaxing getaway! Thanks Catherine.

Comfortable,07 July 2008
Our stay was comfortable and we had a good view over town and to the harbour. Catherine was lovely host. Thank you. Stephanie, South Africa

Fantastic Place! - 07 July 2008  
Enjoyed our stay at Upperbloem. Felt at home since day 1. Katrin is a great host and catered for all our needs. The view of the city and the mountains is just great. We got a upgrade of our room during our stay. Thank you Katrin for having us and our next visit to Cape Town will definitely come back there again!

What a View - 19 May 2008  
Catherine is wonderful and subtly attentive but not at all in your space. We so enjoyed the view, the sound of the call to prayer for the faithful Muslims, the sense of community in the BoKaap and the accessibility to Cape Town. A real must to get the rest you need after a hectic business day or a retreat for the tired traveller.
