Clean, spacious, comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities in the bathroom. Everything a business traveller needs. Great thing is the location, 2 minutes walk away from shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. There are plenty of attractions such as the national museum Te Papa, the Cuba mall, the cable cart and government grounds within a walking distance.

I bought a grabone deal and it was $129 for 1 night in a 1 bedroom superior room. Upon arrival we went up to the room and found an empty can of redbull and a glass in the sink, on the ground a balloon pump, piece of plastic, and a twistie tie thing on the couch.. so there was clearly... More

We stayed here 2 weekends, first in a deluxe room and second in a standard, and had no problems either time. The reception staff are very helpful, the rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. The only problem was the noise from the hallways because they aren't carpeted and every sound echoed. Would definitely stay here again

Went here for a birthday treat, $800 a night and quite disappointed. Great location but the place needs a spruce up, or even maybe a dust and a coat of paint. wouldn't go back there, The Museum Hotel has an amazing penthouse for $100 less.

I have stayed at Distinction in Wellington multiple times and will be booking once again for the Wearable Arts. It is by far the best hotel in Wellington for the price that is paid. The location is great with easy access to restaurants and shops. The rooms are clean, tidy and modern. The kitchen, living area and bedrooms give the... More

Room is nice & spacious with a great bathroom & cooking facilities. Room was a front room so over looking the street, noise from the street was easily heard & early morning rubbish trucks there to wake you!! Good gym facilities, best that I have come across at a hotel during my travels. Well equipped.

Location is great, although be prepared that if its raining there is a dash along Tory Street that is not undercover. Ask for a room at the front, as the back rooms look straight into a concrete wall of the car park building. Don't expect the reception staff to be pleasant and friendly - they are not. We changed room... More

Stayed for a long weekend recently and was very impressed with the presentation of the room. We paid for a studio and got an upgrade to a one bedroom which was nice. The room had wonderful black out curtains which dimmed the lights from the city. Only downside was a strange rumbling / buzzing noise / vibration that occurred every... More

It was a steal getting a one room apartment upgrade and the experience was well worth it. The car parking is a bit awkward but that is the only failing in my stay. There is no room service facility (but that is coming soon) but when you realise that you are right beside the Lone Star- who do meals to... More

Thank you Hanna H Our car park is an adventure, we have instructions on the car park voucher to help the weary travellers. We hope to have our Restaurant up and running later this year so watch this space. If you have an awesome name let us know we are looking for something catchy. More
