We were in Wellington for 3 nights and stayed here after checking reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very glad we did. The property is on the perfect location in Lambton Quay; the rooms were great and very well equipped and laid out. I certainly would stay here next time, and would happily recommend friends to do the same. Also, if... More

We recently hired out their ambassador suite for an art exhibition, choosing Citylife for its convienent location but it offered much more than that! The staff were all so friendly and extremely helpful and accomodating! We had about 80 people come through the hotel and they helped make it into a smooth and very successful affair!

parking is reasonable at $20 +GST, you may get a deal with free parking. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. the two rooms we had were below reception and on level 3 - very quiet rooms, comfortable beds and linens. The hotel appears to be undertaking an upgrade. the shower was excellent and great to see a shelf attached... More

Citylife is centrally located right in the heart of the CBD in Wellington. It's a great location for accessing the shops, the port and restaurants. The cable car is a 1 min walk away as well.

CityLife is very well located in the centre of Wellington. I was able to walk to all of the meetings that I had in the city as well as walk to various attractions. I did not have a car and I doubt that I would stay at CityLife if I had one given the limited parking on site. I stayed... More

Stayed here as part of a quick work trip to Wellington. Amazing location on Lambton Quay, so naturally very close to anything you need. Very comfortable beds and pillows! Only a 5 minute taxi to the bars and theaters of Courtenay Place. Useful staff with decent recommendations. Would highly recommend to anyone after a stay in the middle of Wellington.
