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

Having stayed a lot in the larger hotels, we decided on our last visit to wellington in June to stay at the ohtel after reading an article in nz herald travel page, we were pleasantly surprised how good this place is and wondering why we had not stayed here before and will now have this as our favourite hotel in...

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...

We stayed at Ohtel over the weekend with another couple for a quick visit to Wellington and couldn't have picked a better spot. The hotel is very "retro" once you get through the doors with fantastic pieces of furniture from another time. We stayed in a suite and were very comfortable. The bed was fabulous, high quality linen and complimentary... More

Anyone travelling to Wellington would be well advised to stay at Ohtel. Beautiful rooms, very comfy bed, close to the City and the waterfront. Best coffee in Wellington and the staff are fantastic!! Highly recommended. We will definitely be back. 👍😄

Hi Pool, I think a lot of guests are a little taken back by how tiny the lobby and entrance is into our place, but conversely love our spacious rooms... Give us a try everyone, you won't be disappointed ! Alan More
