"What a great stay, with an excellent view. Breakfast is served until late so you can sleep in after a late night. The central location was an added advantage that cuts out long drives around the city. We had last-minute travel changes and had to cancel a few days - Katrin at Upperbloem was so helpfu..."more
"Thank you to Katrin and the team for making our stay so relaxing. I would love to stay again."
"Thank you for a wonderful stay at Upperbloem. It was a real bo-kaap weekend! "
"My boyfriend and I stayed at Upperbloem for a few days in April 2011 and loved it! It was a brilliant base from which to explore the city.
Upperbloem is relaxed and welcoming. The view from the balcony is second to none - a great way to start with day with breakfast on the balcony or a nigh..."
"Our stay was very comfortable and the view overlooking Cape Town Table Mountain is spectacular. Katrin was very helpful in every way. Try to get one of the larger rooms with a view if possible. They are worth it unless you are really pinching pennies. Regardless, you will have a great breakfast view..."more
"Upperbloem referred us to Blue Sky Cottages where we stayed. We had a lovely stay."
"Although my visit was a short one, I had an awesome experience. The accomodation was clean and all the staff was friendly. The breakfast offered was more than adequate. I was given directions to the places I wanted to visit and it was about a 10 minute walk to Long Street. Thank you."
"What a fabulous bed & breakfast. Even better than described. Absolutely delightful. I highly recommend."
"We stayed at Upperbloem for a week during winter. It was a great, quiet location, clean & spacious accommodation and Katrin was very hospitable and helpful.

"The facilities were good , the views fantastic and the the landlady a breath of fresh air."

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

We enjoyed our short stay there and found the place ..."

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..."more
"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..."more
"Very good, fantastic venue, clean tidy and very comfortable. Always enjoyable, thanks Katrin"
"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...."

Only downside was it was a very steep walk back, as the accommodation is on a hill. This also means it has ..."more
"Cathrins Place in Upperbloem Street is a perfect place to stay in Cape Town - I will be back :-)
If you dont have a car available you have to be in good condition, as walking up to the house is more like rock climbing than walking. But this is the price for the perfect view!"

"We slept in Upperbloem only 2 nights. There is very nice view to the Table Mountain and V&A Waterfront.
Name UPPERbloem is real, because thet you can have nice view, you must be on the "top". This place is on the top Bo-kaap = very nice, interesting and coloured part of Cape Town.

Thanks for friendly service and quality accommodation at a reasonably price"

We will return there as soon as possible."
