I took my parents who were visiting from the UK for a short stay in Wellington. I'd read the reviews on TripAdvisor about this hotel and was happy to book. We needed an apartment style room as I also had my son with me. Unfortunately I'd booked a 2 bedroom, one bathroom and on arrival my parents asked if we...

The studio room was very nice - spacious, clean and quiet. It did not have any view from the window but was not an issue for me. Having real coffee and a plunger in a room was however a great advantage. The room had everything for a comfortable stay - plates, cups, microwave, toaster and cutlery. There is also a...

Great location, right in the heart of the CBD. Our very small room didn't really look at all like the pictures, but it was just enough for 2 or 3 nights (suitcases were cluttered around the floor). A tiny window that couldn't be opened made it almost feel like the lower deck of a cruise ship, however it was very...

Our studio on the second floor was very quiet and enabled us to shut out hustle and bustle of Wellington. The bed and living space were very comfortable, and kitchen had enough for preparing light meals: fridge, kettle and microwave. Washing up must be done in the bathroom sink, which isn't ideal, but housekeeping did some the we'd left to...

Just a three minute walk to the harbour and the waterfront resturants, CityLife Hotel is next to main shops, coffee shops, historical places and the Cable Car base. Interesting that reception is on top level 6 and vehicle arrival is by there, while the ground floor is the entrance to the hotel from street level. Room was small but comfortable...

City Life Wellington is in a great location with a pedestrian access off Lambton Quay & a vehicle entrance above at the back which is also quite accessible. Our 2 bedroom apartment was quite comfortable although quite dated in the decor. Friendly helpful staff made our stay a very good experience.
