We stayed here for just one night. Had booked a Studio but then opted for the 1 bedroom with city view. I thought the place was lovely, reception staff incredibly helpful and polite... modern apartment, great view right in the heart of Wellington but yet away from most of the noise. We were on the 6th floor. We're actually going...

We wanted a 2 bedroom apartment and this was the only one available in all of Wellington - several major events were happening that took up every other hotel room in the city. Funky but dated decor. Spacious living area. Parking is in a separate building. There's no porter service. Free wifi.

We were there for Easter and our friends live in one of the apartments (this is an interesting complex- half hotel, half apartment living) so it was perfect for us. Courtenay Place, Te Papa, Sunday markets and Moore Wilsons- all within walking distance. The room was clean and quiet and while there was no view to speak of this did...

This hotel is hard for me to rate, the rooms are lovely and shiny new. The bed was a bid bouncy, there was a lot of noise from the parking garage next door. The light from there was also bright. I did not find the block out curtain till later. It was hard to get to the parking garage and...

First impression: clean, convenience, close to the city. It's my first time at Wellington. Quite happy with the apartment. It's walking distances to the city. I've had a single bed apartment. It's spacious and clean. I didn't get to use the kitchen but there's plenty of space for a couple. Will book them again if going back to Wellington.

Fastest Wifi in the West with a generous 3Gb available Spacious apartment but no Airconditioning and really too noisy (i was 4th floor) to leave the windows open onto the small balcony. Well equipped with modern decor (see photos).

I have stayed at this Hotel and enjoyed it however this time it was really disappointing. The room was so hot and when we left the slider open we heard all the restaurant and bar noises. And there is a dero backpackers next door so there were a lot of drunk fights to be heard. Can't believe at this price...
