I wouldn't use addr:place as this should already be covered by
addr:city (not only used for actual "cities"), but I could imagine an
addr:neighbourhood (where neighbourhood would be a place part of a
bigger settlement). If this is not in context of a bigger settlement
I'd instinctively prefer to use its own place like place=hamlet (could
be discussed, not sure).
