Great hotel, central to all major attractions. Difficulties with parking. The hotel reception is on the top floor from the main Lambton key entrance, which is actually a street behind, its a bit difficult to navigate and park for check in but once checked in the parking building is close by. Fantastic staff, lovely rooms. Our room was not ready... More

We had a lovely stay this weekend just gone with our 21 month old son. City Life provided a portacot all made up for us, and the room was wonderful. Super central and handy to all amenities (and shoe shops!!). Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

We always try and stay at the City Life. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. The staff are excellent. A very convenient location, easy walking distance to Te Papa. Some nice restaurants close by. Avida and Pravda both offer great food and wine.

The reservations staff were fantastic and we were upgraded from a studio room to a two bedroom suite which was fantastic. The room was warm and had great facilities and the location is excellent with access straight onto Lampton Quay which is very central. The service when we checked out was exceptional and we will be staying here again.

Our booking was mucked up & there were two double beds for three work colleagues... end result was a fold up bed of below average comfort, in the lounge. This, and the cockroach wandering over the dining table, put a dampner on our stay. Other than that, room size was generous and good kitchen facilities. Very friendly staff did the... More

My main bug bear in accommodation is the noise from outside like vehicle or other guests standing outside your room, early hours chatting or vice versa you are sleeping and they are saying goodnight, so when I find a room that is quiet, I have to share. This was great at the back of the hotel no noise was fantastic,... More

Great stay and service.Only recommend bedroom curtain could have a bit more width to stop the street lighting shining through but this was a awesome place to stay and I'm glad I booked them. Close to everything so no need for a car.

City Life on Lambton Quay, is the perfect location for getting about the city and further a field. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, perfect for 2 couples. Have to say the decor is starting to get a bit tired, but the rooms were kept clean and everything required was there
