I found it disappointing. It is more like an AirBnB than a hotel. I wanted interaction, someone to recommend restaurants, arrange a taxi, etc. Instead I got a ‘contactless’ reception - otherwise known as a key lock box !!! Disappointing. If you want a hotel with staff, book somewhere else.

Perfect location for Wellington sightseeing - next to new convention centre, 2 minutes walk to Te Papa and the waterfront, 3 minutes walk to nightlife in Courtenay Place

Great location for Te Papa, Michael Fowler Centre & the New Convention Centre. Comfortable room with kitchen, close to supermarket if you want to supply your own food. Good blackout curtains, bed comfortable but would have preferred a King (there is plenty of room for one). Air Con for heating works well. Watch out for the small lip when getting into shower. Nespresso coffee machine down the hall very handy. Doesn't have Sky TV NZ but its still a good smart TV. Just remember this is a single floor hotel with no reception sk you cant leave your bags there early or after checking out. Te Papa Museum has pay for bag lockers until 6pm. Slightly cheaper than near by hotels.

Was a bit difficult to check in as I arrived late. I did not have internet with me so I had to ask a passer by to help me ring the manager. It took some time to do this and was stressful. The property itself is situated very conveniently, though my room was a bit outdated and dark. Washing machine is great and I appreciate having this feature.

Everything is fine; A dishwasher and a laundry machine are equipped in the room and powder is supplied. A fire evacuation drill was held during our stay; It showed this hotel was reliable.

I arrived after hours and couldn’t get into the building. There is no lobby and the room manager was not answering. I had to make a few calls to get the code into the building. Key was left in a lock box. I had booked the room specifically for the washer and dryer. The washer wasn’t working and the dryer didn’t dry the cloth. Bad experience, don’t stay there!
