Reasonable price, town was booked out and we got one bedroom apartments here. Can't complain about anything. Close to Cuba Street and not a bad walk into city. Southern Cross Garden bar next door great place for drinks or meals

Location: The Southern Cross Serviced Apartments at the Wellington CBD. The location of the hotel is perfect - on the corner of Cuba Street which comes under the pedestrian zone of wellington (most of interesting places in wellington are within walkable distance) and close to just about every culinary taste. Cuba St. is perhaps one of the most happening streets...

We stayed here recently for a week. Arrived after hours but with the clear instructions got a key & entry sorted in no time. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment. Plenty of room, clean, tiny but adequate kitchen. It was very very windy on the first night so lots banging and clanging. Reception staff was extremely nice and helpful....

Central, nice staff, secure, clean, very good value for money even in the smallest studio. Furnished with or easy access to everything you need for living here 1 night or 1 month. (Have to pay for WiFi, or use free acess in the restaurant next door.) Same place next stay!

Thank you for your feedback. We were disappointed by this very unfortunate incident as we have had a preventative maintenance programme in place for some time. When we addressed your issue our pest control expert did advise us that due to the hot temperatures and long summer days in Wellington these factors had caused a problem for many service providers...

Great value and great saving on a 2 bedroom apartment, the only problem is the southern cross bar are just downstair. its abot noisy at the night. But the food there is delicious and also a beutiful enviroment to hang out. If you are coming with more than 3 ppl, this is a great place to stay in.

Pleasant enough reception service and allowed into room before 2pm which was much appreciated. Nice and handy to my function venue and Cuba Street with plenty of places to eat/drink. Very clean and tidy small room, but worth what I paid for it. Shower was great, good pressure and plenty of hot water. Would want a bigger room if I...

Stayed here for 2 weeks when we first arrived in Wellington. Their long stay rates are very reasonable compared to similar serviced apartments in the area. I read reviews about the noise so I requested a room on the quiet side of the building. I was very pleased with the room.. clean & simple, no frills. Kitchenette had complete utensils...
