What are some good suburbs in or around Cape Town to book a hotel at?

The ideal place should be in a safe suburb and close to Table mountain,the V&A Waterfront and all the amenities.

Hi Deni, as the question stands it is highly likely to be closed as being not constructive. What a good hotel location is, is very subjective. What you might find a good hotel location, others might not like and vv. –  andra Feb 11 '13 at 12:12
    
But but...Ok :'-( –  Deni Feb 11 '13 at 12:40
    
@Deni Can you make this more specific? At a first glance V&A Waterfront is about 50km from the Table Mountain, so what does "close" means to you? –  Karlson Feb 11 '13 at 15:12

@Karlson it's really not that far, I assure you :) More like 10km. –  Mark Mayo Feb 13 '13 at 21:15

Almost all hotels in Cape Town can be found in a few key locations, so you don't need to worry too much about which one is safer than the other.

  • the first location is around the waterfront, where several big hotels are location (I'll leave names out of this)
  • the second area is in the city centre, around the Company Gardens and Green Market square. Great location for some of the old sites of the city.
  • Finally, just around the corner down the coast you'll get pockets of hotels - in Sea Point (where I stayed last time I was there), Barry's Bay and Camps Bay. All are fairly safe (for Cape Town - everything is relative, of course), and more importantly than location, you'll want to make sure your hotel has off-street (locked) parking with key-access.
