Not sure what I booked but we ended up with a fabulous suite, which included a washer/dryer which we put to good use. Super location, easy walking distance to everything. Just check and make sure, if you are driving that you have the address for the parking garage as that is also the address for check in. The official address... More

We had trouble finding it, the parking situation was a desaster. And they charged ridiculous amounts for WIFI. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for family of four which was perfectly fine. Spacious and clean but the service personnel wasn't particularly helpful, so overall it did the job but was not one of the most memorable stays.

We needed space as we were travelling as a familiy and booked a Directors suite with 2 queen beds. We were very pleased to be given an apartment at the back of the building which is in a quiet street and in general found the lay out and furnishings suited our needs. It's location is perfect for shops and visiting... More

Citylife is right in the middle of the city, opposite the Old Bank arcade on Lambton Quay. The cultural spots of Courtenay Place and Cuba Street are less than 10 minutes walk away, along completely flat roads. Being in the financial district, the location is nice and quiet in the evenings, and it's very easy to get around. We stayed in... More

My other half was responsible for booking us into a one bedroomed apartment on the 4th floor at City Life . He chose an apartment so we could get our own breakfast as most of the local cafes were still closed for the Christmas/New year break. I was seriously disappointed after having previously stayed in some lovely hotels in Wellington.... More

We rented the 2bdrm Directors suite and were very happy with the size of the suite and the amenities. The shower pressure was amazing and just what was needed after a fun night out. Staff helpful and welcoming.

Really central location though during the holiday weekend it was pretty quiet at night - but with a quick walk you can find plenty of eating places round Cuba and Courtney streets. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was fully equipped with pretty much everything you could need. Reasonably spacious - and the second toilet was a welcome surprise! Great... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Citylife Wellington. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and were lucky enough to get an upgrade to a 3 bedroom. Very spacious, comfortable and clean with helpful staff. The location is very central with a supermarket on the street. Would definitely book again!
