Where is the best place to stay in Cape Town, South Africa?

Can you recommend somewhere to stay four nights in Cape Town, not sure whether to do a hotel or airbnb? M. Haslam, Noosa, QLD

The Hippo Boutique Hotel, rhinoafrica.com, is a snappy hotel in a prime location with restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping on the doorstep.

All the rooms have a kitchenette but the suites with mezzanine-level bedrooms are worth the extra bucks.

In the same area, 2inn1 Kensington, 2inn1.com/, is a stylist boutique hotel in prestige residential quarters, and offers a great rate. 

Airbnb also has some fine properties along the Atlantic seaboard between Green Point and Camps Bay, close to the popular V&A Waterfront.
