The central location suited me as I was at a conference at TSB Arena on the wharf - approximately 300 metres away. Being right in the shopping district was great, and it also meant that at night it was quiet. The main party area is only a 5 minute walk. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely... More

Two nights at City Life Wellington. Very comfortable. Very clean, impressed City Life kept the pillows/cushions on the bed to a minimum. My room was spacious & at the rear of the hotel so it was very quiet. Valet parking wasn't available on check in as the staff members were to young, while I attended to it my bags were... More

We usually take the evening flight from Sydney to Wellington so we arrive at the hotel after midnight local time. We really appreciate that there is someone awake and cheerful and at the desk when we arrive at CityLife Wellington. If the a-lot-of-light-gets-into-the-suites-facing-Lambton-Quay problem could be solved (basically, the block-out curtains are too small and are not hung intelligently) and... More

The room was large with a fantastic bed, staff were friendly and helpful, however the rooms are looking a little tired and could do with a refresh. We also had one window that would not fully close, but still, we would stay here again

We stayed at City Life on Lambton Quay for the weekend 10-12 October 2014 to see WOW. We had 2x2-bedroom apartments between 8 of us and it was just perfect. The apartments were very spacious, we had the "director", which had 2 bathrooms, large lounge/dining area and sufficiently equipped kitchen with dishwasher. The beds were the most comfortable I have... More

Three of us stayed overnight while attending WOW. This was one of the few hotels offering three beds - we were amazed at the great room, just like an apartment, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and full kitchen. All really clean and quite luxurious. Very central - easy walking distance to all that we wanted to see. Would definitely... More

The Director's Suite was huge and wonderfully suitable for 4-5 people. Full Kitchen, big en-suites, and comfy beds. Very little noise even though we were on the Lambton Quay side, and this is the main shopping street. Well positioned for all we wanted to do. Staff very helpful and welcoming, and happy to hold our bags for almost a full... More

There were 6 of us in our 'party' and we stayed in the two bedroom apartment. The apartment had a great layout and the location of the hotel was very central to shops, restaurants and the WOW show venue. We will definitely stay again in the future. Jacque Tweedale
