Hi @AdelMum welcome I would recommend staying near the V and A because there is lots to do there and it's a good base. lots of restaurants and places to eat. You have the aquarium, the gem store, the markets, boat tours, the red bus tour- all good stuff to do with a 6yr old. I like to stay near there because it cuts down the need for a taxi in the evenings and I wanted that option when I was on my own. I personally wouldn't walk around at night anywhere else.The hotels in V and A can be expensive but the serviced apartments seem reasonable. Or you could stay at one of the smaller boutique hotels based around Green Point or Sea point and get a taxi to V and A or anywhere else you decide to go.($5-10aud) Walking is easy during the day but I wouldn't do it at night and we were recommended not to by our hotel. Lots of ladies stay close to the clinic for short trips. I think we might look at apartments for our next trip or possibly go back to the One 8 in green point. Wishing you the best of luck, it's a great city.
