We got an upgrade to deluxe room and we loved it immediately. The Staff was great and really polite and their hospitality was amazing. And minibar was awesome. Never seen that good of a minibar. Special thanks to Felicity and Stephanie and all people at the front desk.

Ohtel is run by very friendly and helpful people. It's just that bit more than a plain hotel. Staying at Ohtel is like dining at a locally-owned restaurant rather than a chain restaurant. You get all the trimmings but with the local flair and flavour added. Highly recommended - we'll be back.

Comfortable small hotel, personal service. I stayed 5 nights while visiting family. Quiet, convenient to city and attractions. On bus route but within walking distance of city. Cafe's close by good for breakfast. I would stay here again even though room price more than I usually choose when visiting Wellington for family reasons

Thanks for making the move from the larger hotels to our place Davista. Most people that stay with us are glad they chose a more unique, owner-run property over the bland, cooker-cutter chain accommodation options. Free WI-FI too ! Give us a try ! Alan More

we spent a couple of nights at the ohtel recently, and overall it was a good experience. the desk staff was very friendly and helpful. the room was spacious, but the functional aspect of the room was thwarted by the artsiness of it, particularly the bathroom, which both my wife and I found awkward. the location of the hotel was...

Hi Beulahdoc, I'm sorry you felt thwarted by the bathroom configuration. We have tried to make it as clear as possible in all of the room descriptions, photos and previous responses to comments on this aspect of the hotel - but it still seems to be occasionally missed by prospective guests. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Alan More

This place is a gorgeous boutique hotel. The mini bar was incredible with local boutique craft beers. Super central near great restaurants. This place is absolutely at the top of my Wellington Hotel favourite list. Close to the water, great views. Close to Te Papa museum and other great highlights. Fabulous comfy bed. Great size room with a proper good... More

Hi Lizzie, With the weather the way it has been, (I guess it is Winter), having 50 + SKY channels to surf through can be a lot of fun... So pleased you enjoyed your overnighter with us ! Alan More

Loved this Ohtel, great proximity to all that Wellington has to offer, fantastic views! Great suite with all the mod cons! Mini bar with everything you need including cocktail recipes to make your own with what's available, great concept!

Great location, love the concept of this hotel! Best mini bar I have seen! If you want to relax in retro style, stay... You won't regret it. Lush coffee and toiletries added a special touch. Lovely greeting from the receptionist made us feel very welcome.

We are so appreciative when a hotel lets us have our dog and he was welcomed (and spoiled with attention.) The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The room has everything you could want with very nice toiletries, lots of food/beverage choices and an excellent bed. The small cafe in the reception area has great coffee and small meals. The...
