Perfect for a few days stay in Wellington - central location and good facilities. Had a job to find it at first, but once there the staff were very helpful with directions and information. We had a suite with full kitchen and laundry, and comfortable lounge area. We had a Chinese takeaway delivered to our room one night - this... More

Central location with easy access to airport (20mins), Interislander ferry (10mins), restaurants and waterfront. Facilities are brilliant for travellers include washing machine and dryer, well equiped mini kitchen. Staff are friendly and efficient. To be welcomed back after a 5 month gap was amazing. City Life will always be our choice in Wellington.

I always enjoy arriving at City Life Wellington welcoming staff, clean and comfortable rooms. While the breakfast area is small its ideal for business people. If you have time to leisure about for breakfast a choice of many cafes are all within meters of the hotel.

We were very pleased with our stay at Citylife. We had never stayed in this hotel chain before and it is excellent. We had been traveling for 2 weeks and our suite (we were upgraded to a two bedroom) had a small kitchen and washer and dryer. I was able to do our laundry and relax in a room that... More

Centrally situated. Short walk to restaurants, wharves and CBD. The apartments were spacious with large bedrooms. Friendly helpful staff and great value for money. Not sure about car parking. Did not look as if there was much space.

Great position - short walk to wharves, Cuba St, Te Papa Museum (wonderous place to visit on a rainy day), city centre, Info Centre & Cable Car. Sure not many car parks but we ditched the hire car after check in. Recommend booking the Hop On Hop Off Tour - we chose to stay on bus for 2 hour trip.... More

Very nice hotel, centrally located, with great staff. However, parking is very tight, especially since we were charged $20 per day - there are only about 6 stalls on site, with the rest up to 1 block away. Staff were very helpful, with recommendations for restaurants sights & services.

Best value located in the downtown area. Super close to Cuba Street and next door to cable car. Probably the best value and best base for exploring the city. Nothing to complain about except maybe that the parking is a little hard to find.

The Interislander brought the five of us in Wellington and we took the shuttle bus from the ferry terminal to the railway station - very easy and rapid way to reach city centre. From the Railway station there is a nice, short stroll to the Citylife, which is conveniently located right in the middle of the Wellington buzz. You will... More

Four of us stayed in this hotel in a two bedroom apartment. We had actually shifted from the Distinction hotel down the road after not being satisfied with our stay there. Fortunately Citylife was a much more pleasant experience right from the start. We arrived well before check in and whilst they couldn't check us in before 2pm they were... More
