Very good B&B, with good views. Only 5 mins down hill to Long Street (but 10 mins back up!). Balcony room can be a shade noisy (opens onto breakfast area) and its balcony section can get the cigarette smoke from the general balcony. I will definitely return to this B&B when next in Cape Town.

Upperbloem was great value for money and we were very comfortable there. Although the room was small, it was very clean and the shower was always hot. We liked the relaxed, home from home atmosphere and will certainly stay there again.
