5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place had a great location and across the street from the Te Papa museum. It offered all of the amenities of a large hotel. Keep in mind, WiFi, Breakfast and other services are at extra costs. Our room was very comfortable and we took advantage of the washer/dryer.

We stayed one night and found the hotel very charming with great staff and the apartments were stunning with all the mod cons one could require. We loved the " crackling " fresh linen. Highly recommended.

The Museum Art Hotel is in a great spot by the quayside. The decor in the lobby is probably the best I have ever seen with lots of modern art . Really hits you when you walk through the door. Staff were friendly my wife particularly liked the French concierge! Only negative point was this is the only hotel in... More

I have stayed three times - once in an apartment and twice in a hotel room. Service is always good. I always arrive at 1am and when I leave its around 4 am and there's never an issue - service is still polite and efficient and friendly. The front desk often go that extra step like arranging for my missing... More

This isn't another boring corporate, bland hotel. Instead you get art and an air of mystery around every corner. The dark public spaces and corridors are the perfect backdrop to an eclectic art collection of paintings, sculptures, motorbikes etc. There's even a herd of golden hippos stuck on the ceiling outside one of the lifts! The rooms are light and... More

I went down to Wellington to get away for the weekend and also discover a little more of New Zealand as I have only been here 6 months. I was fortunate enough to book a room in the Museum Art hotel over Waitangi weekend. The hotel lobby is really quirky with lots of funky art to look art. The front... More

Friendly staff, spacious comfortable room, interesting decor, we loved it. Non opening windows mean stewing or aircon overnight, fridge full of things they were trying to sell us and expensive wifi, but these are minor irritations. Overall very pleased.

Like many reviewers, I agree that the location of this hotel is excellent. You are right next to Te Papa, and many other great museums, shops and eateries. The hotel itself is very dark, and I didn't find any of the art on display to be particularly good, unless you like bad paintings of naked women and tired taxidermy. Think... More

The façade is fun. The cars in the car park are great to look at. The lobby is fabulous - full of funky art. And that is where it ends. We stayed in the hotel side (they do have an apartment side). The rooms are tiny. Tiny. Housekeeping is not the greatest. My hair was still on the bathroom floor... More
