Stayed only one night in a studio. Lovely large lounge room, separate bedroom, well equipped kitchenette. Hotel is in the centre of town, right next door to Cable car station. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was very quiet.

If you are arriving here by car it is quite tricky to find the parking for this hotel. If you approach along Lambton Quey you will need to go left at the end of the road and bear left when the road splits. Upon checking in we some how ended up with a large 2bedroom apartment with full kitchen and... More

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.
