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

We had two separate visits to Wellington in a short period of time. Ohtel was the second hotel we stayed in on Oriental Parade. Our room faced the bay but was on the first floor and quite loud with noise from traffic. The staff was very accommodating and helpful but the furnishings could be updated. We were disappointed based on... More

Hi Lisa, My housekeeper told me that you arrived for an early check-in hoping to get some rest after your long flight. She informed me later in the day how a family group kept noisily moving from room to room on your floor - so I apologise that we weren't able to manage that better for you. Usually our guests...

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
