This is a small 10 room hotel. The location is very nice right by the entertainment district and many of the better restaurants and bars in town. The service staff is very attentive and accomodating. There is a breakfast in a small room by the lobby. The hotel is not staffed 24 hour and we checked in by calling a... More

We stayed here for four nights and found it delightful. I arrived before my husband and was made to feel quite welcome even as a jet lagged single traveler. I had their pasta for dinner while sitting in the comfy lobby cafe area and it was the perfect meal after 20+ hours traveling. We were in room 10 with a... More

Fabulous spot on Oriental Parade, can walk everywhere. Staff were very fabulous and ever so helpful. The rooms were spacious and very well furnished. When I return to Wellington I will be staying here. Great bathroom products too, I must admit I even took mine home.

The location is super - right at the Courtney Place end of Oriental Parade - so walking distance to everywhere. The decor is cool and a bit different. I booked a studio but think I got an upgrade to a delux room and it was massive! Very comfortable, everything you needed, comfy bed, huge bathroom with shower and bath, good... More

Ohtel really is one of the nicest city hotels in New Zealand with really well furnished and large rooms. This hotel is perfect for the romantic and for couples spending a weekend in Wellington with very welcoming staff. Although a small hotel it packs a lot into it with very nice décor and large bathrooms. The location makes this place... More

We were a group of 4 staying at the Ohtel, all family having a girls weekend. We loved the gorgeous rooms. Very spacious, spotless and cool retro furniture. Beds were super comfortable. The staff were so helpful and friendly, very personal feel not just a number in a big hotel! Will definitely stay again. Only thing I'd change is having... More

This was a small “Boutique” hotel right on the waterfront of Oriental Bay section of Wellington. Obviously newly renovated, with very nice, modern décor. Large bathroom with separate shower and tub and double sink, Check in was easy, Rate did not include breakfast, but they provided an adequate breakfast offering. Couldn’t get the cable controller to work until I discovered... More

Hi Ski Lover, I designed and built the hotel 7 years ago now, so just starting to 'refresh' some of the soft furnishings to keep it looking at its best. Parking can be a bit challenging, but you have summarised the options well - better still, ditch the rental when you arrive and enjoy walking around our compact city from... More

From the moment the wonderful Marianne came to our aid as she noticed us awkwardly wheeling our luggage towards the main entrance we knew this was a real find. Clean, quirky loads of character and a really attentive but not overbearing team. The rooms are bold- possibly loud but that makes them what they are - the bathroom was large... More
