This hotel is the quintessential Wellington experience. It is perfectly located for a late night stumble home from the bars, weekend brunch, museum visit or quick getaway to the airport. As a regular business traveler, the Museum hotel caters to my every need. The work desk is spacious without being intrusive in the rooms, there are accessible power points by... More

Lovely hotel in a good location for tourists. Quirky but fun.They let themselves down in a few small but significant ways though. If they want to be considered as an "international standard hotel" then wifi should not cost $8 per day, the concierge service should be more regularly available and more knowledgeable (It isn't a big city after all. During... More

Beautiful room, one of the recently refurbished ones, just stunning. The reception service and concierge staff were great. The Nespresso machine in the room was a lovely touch, it was also nice to be able to play my own music on the music docking system. The 11:00am checkout time was great, very unusual for NZ and much appreciated. I wouldn't... More

We arrived on a Friday evening with one of us not feeling well. We were taken back by the interesting and artfully beautiful lobby and woman's restroom, (a must see). We had room service for dinner as I only wanted soup, also the restaurant was booked completely. In the morning, they helped us find as after hours clinic and pharmacy,... More

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon after a long drive with one of us feeling unwell, all we wanted was a meal and an early night with a good sleep. The first blow was that the restaurant was closed due to a private function. The private function turned out to be a wedding which after their meal had dancing which... More

We stayed in Wellington for a Family Celebration and wanted a very good Restaurant and accommodation. This Hotel fitted our requirements very well. We were upgraded to a small Apartment and everything was at hand, A beautiful mea at Hippopotamusl with our family completed a great gathering.

Very unique hotel with great rooms and restaurant. A bit spendy for the apartment suites for what they are. Loved hippopotamus sis the six course meal with wine and it was amazing. Love that everything you want to see is within walking distance.

This hotel was just great! Stayed in the apartment section of the hotel - the room was grand. What makes this hotel is what isn't in your room, it is the wonderful foyer area, and the fantastic hippopotamus restaurant. All soooo hip! Just wonderful. I almost gave it 5 stars, but that's an exceptional hard to get! Have stayed at... More

I love this hotel. It's is quirky and fun. The halls remind me of a Tim Burton movie, a little odd but fun. The artwork thought out the hotel are fantastic. We have only ever had a harbour view room which I strongly recommend. The view is amazing, the room beautiful and a huge shower. The location is great, an... More

The Museum Art Hotel is different despite the bones being a bit old. The decor makes the difference from the boring chain hotels along with the odd good quirky thing. The room we had was far from big but with most of the walls being mirrors it was difficult to feel hemmed in - until you tried to walk the... More
