My mum stayed here with 2 of her grandchildren for 3 days. She said the location and cleanliness were the only good points. She didn't see the value for money and would search around for something better next time. Her double bed was actually 2 single beds pushed together with hardly any room on either side of the bed to... More

Went down for the weekend to see the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular playing at the TSB Arena which was about 200m from the hotel which was really handy. The hotel room was nice with a small kitchenette with hot plates, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher; large bathroom with washer and dryer; and a separate bedroom. Could hear traffic noise during the... More

But fitout tired and smells a BIT like someone's house rather than a hotel. But location, a block from the intercontinental, about as central as you could hope for. Quite nice old building with good light every room. After hours check in very easy

An older establishment but very comfortable. The two bedroom apartment was perfect for 3 adults and with an extra bed in lounge, 2 children. The only down side was no onsite parking but the parking provided was only a short distance away. Had to pay for that. The apartment was serviced every day and we had an abundance of towels... More

Arrived in Wellington on New Year Eve after 5pm when the Reception has closed. No problem contacting the after hours assistance and locating our apartment. However the off-site parking is a good 7 to 10mins walk from accommodation which is very inconvenient for loading and unloading luggages. The apartment is old and poorly maintained. Cooking area is very small. Stayed... More

Greatest location you could have stay in Wellington. Close to absolutely everything. Room is dated , old style but practical .130 $ / a night isnt so bad. Cable car is 2 mins walk from the hotel. Shopping street is right next door. Bars & Restaurants are everywhere.
