Plenty of room in our 2BR apartment for three adults. Well laid out with functional kitchen. The only negative was that we had no view and the apartment was pretty dark inside. Overall we were very happy with our five-night stay here and would recommend.

Although it's hard to find, the location is great - center city, wonderful amenities including soft robes, kitchenette, and gym. Spacious and a value - we paid about $175 U.S. dollars for a three room studio. All good!

We stayed 5 nights in mid February. Our 5th floor room faced the city & harbor. It had a kitchenette (and dishwasher), dining area with table (for 4), sitting room (TV, chaise, etc.),two separate bedrooms (Queen beds), and 1.5 baths. Breakfast and parking cost extra. The bathroom had a washer and dryer which worked well. (They provided wash detergent.) The... More

The staff at city life Wellington was the best ever. Sally called many places for us to confirm our reservations and to find out if we could return our rental car early (that saved us two day vista as well !) . She also took care of our ferry to South Island and continued to be as helpful as possible.... More

My room has a very small window and very old devices. There was no natural light. It was under my expectation. Parking area was a jungle. I recommend a full review of the infrastructure of the hotel, especially rooms with small windows.

Citylife Wellington is very well located and a great base to explore Wellington. The staff were friendly and we were fortunate enough to be given a free upgrade to a one bedroom suite when we checked it. The suite was very spacious which is very beneficial if you are travelling with a lot of luggage. We were 2 weeks into... More

Started with my wife and 2 Grandchildren January 2015. 2 bedroom suite, we had a large lounge and kitchen too. Ideal for a longer stay and on the doorstep of Lambton Quay. Both rooms ensuite plus a washer and dryer. No room service to speak of, but you're in the heart of Wellington and close to many fine eateries. Downsides?... More
