Staying in the 1 Bedroom Executive Suite at the moment, room is nice and modern. Comes with a good ktichen with everything you need (pots and pans, utensils etc). Some appliances a bit dated but fine. Parking not the best if you have a big vehicle - I have a ford ranger and struggled to park due to tight spaces... More

I have stayed at City Life during my last two trips to Wellington and plan to stay again. Great location, good size rooms and comfortable beds. Staff have always been very approachable and helpful. Parking is a bit expensive and to far away on a wet or windy day.

Clean and tidy with friendly staff in a good location. But had room on same floor as bar so a bit noisy, until the party finished however this wasn't too late. Only difficulty was finding the parking if you enter the hotel's address in your navigation system.

We stopped over in Wellington for two days before heading North to explore the North Island. We like to have space and a lounge area to relax in so opted for an apart hotel rather than the traditional single room or hotel suite. We had a two-bedroomed apartment with a small kitchen area and a lounge - all areas were... More

We shared a 2 bedroom apartment with friends on our stay here earlier this month. The staff were great, the place was spotless and surprisingly quiet given it's city location. Supermarket around the corner was fantastic. Can't fault it, will be back.

A girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights last weekend and it was fabulous. The staff were friendly and really helpful.

We stayed here last week and were absolutely blown away right from check in, staff were friendly and very helpful. We were surprised with how spacious and comfortable the rooms were, all the luxuries of a hotel with the facilities of an apartment style room. Beds super comfy and Internet was generous!!

Great value for the money. We had a huge 2 bedroom executive apt - lovely, well-equipped and clean. Great location - close to the waterfront and many great restaurants and cafes. Close to ferries if taking the inter-islander. Very gracious and helpful staff. Note that it's a bit difficult to find if driving in - we drove right past since... More
