Small and very well situated boutique hotel very close to Te Papa and good restaurants and a short distance from the ferry terminal. Very welcoming staff. We had a large room (5) with a huge 2 person bath in the bathroom. Luxury!

We enjoyed our room with a view over the water and gardens. The service was warm and helpful and our room had all we could want, furnishings in a contemporary style and an excellent minibar. It's location was so convenient and close to restaurants galleries and the city centre. Because only a small hotel, it is very personable. It has... More

Ohtel is a Boutique hotel situated at the start of oriental parade. I had the pleasure of staying here at the start of December, and found ohtel to be the winner for me for a few reasons. First and foremost it's a well put together hotel with friendly staff and great facilities, the only negative I could think of with... More

OHTEL is stylishly appointed and our harbour- facing room had a good view. The curtain instead of a bathroom door was a very strange design choice and at times frustrating, but other than that the room was quite comfortable. There was great attention to detail throughout the hotel and the furniture and decor are well considered. However we felt overall... More

Ohtel is not a cheap option for accommodation, but it has an atmosphere nice enough to visit again. I stayed at Ohtel in June 2015 and enjoyed the location so much we booked it again for our holiday in December. The style and feel of the rooms is lovely. Really amazing 1950's chic Located across for the harbour and 5... More

This is a real boutique/design hotel. The rooms are big and decorated in the sixty style. A lot of attention to details has been given and Alan succeeded to make this a special place. The location is great and you don't need a car to experience the city. You can also get breakfast and even a dish for dinner. Marianna... More

Ohtel has been on my short-list for hotels in Wellington to stay in for five years, and a one night stopover this weekend confirmed its ranking. A large room - with ginormous bathroom, great location, amenable staff, zippy wifi and wonderful mini-bar were the major pluses. Extended checkout, comfie bed and healthy breakfast option also should make the list. Ohtel... More

We were arriving on the midnight flight, so were e-mailed the entry code and found our room key inside. The room on the 3rd floor (there is a lift!) was nice and roomy. Furniture a bit dated, but very comfy. We didn't bother with the breakfast in the small lobby (additional), chose a nearby cafe. Location is excellent near Te... More

Hi YHZweatherguy, Thanks for mentioning the late arrival procedure and that we can store your bags FOC post check-out. If you are arriving after the reception has closed for the evening, let us know in advance and we'll text or email you an entry code, as I definitely need my beauty sleep ! Alan More
