Comfortable, small apartment with all mod cons. Great location close to train station and CBD, quiet area at the weekend as it's in the government area. Only thing missing was Air con. The room would seem too small for 2 people, but just great for one person.

Average room but the price reflects this. The window looked out onto a wall about 3 foot away, otherwise a hotel in a very central location for the ferries, shops and train. It is essential that travellers are aware that reception closes (and is unmanned) after 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. You may then find it difficult to pick up... More

Situated in the Government sector just next to the Ministry of Justice. Close to rail and bus terminals and only a short walk from the CBD. Very comfortable apartment with all the mod cons.

We had two great nights at Aitken on Mulgrave, our room was on the corner of the building and had windows facing both streets. Our room was smallish, and didn't have easy chairs, but well appointed kitchen, good TV and adequate bathroom. Limited reception over the Easter weekend, but the room was serviced on Saturday. Quiet at night, with Subway... More

Travel often from Sydney to Wellington on business and find this property convenient to all companies,government departments and transportation that is needed. Its all I want and even has full kitchen and laundry with a Supermarket only a block away. Generally reception will contact you before hand as to checking arrangments if arriving after 8pm otherwise best to call property... More

Rooms itself not too bad and convenient for railway station. However, arrived at 1705 to see receptionist just leaving. Were told that as we had not checked in by 1700, they sent us an email about an hour before to give us access instructions, on the basis that "everyone checks their email on iphone these days". Obviously we are not... More

Perfectly functional for a short stay. Our room small but there are better sized rooms. Only problem we found was when arriving out of hours the access wasn't straightforward.

Stayed for one night between arriving on the Overlander from Auckland and taking the next morning's Interislander. Arrived on a Sunday and the reception is closed, so they leave you keys and instructions in a lockbox (they even send you a reminder for the procedure the day before). Once I actually saw the lockbox it was rather straightforward. Room is... More

This is the third time I have stayed at the Aitken and every time has been a good stay. Well located - not far from the railway station and buses, a short walk to the Wellington shops (evening meals can be a little more challenging if you are on foot). The room was well equipped for a short stay with... More

Stayed one night between catching the ferry and a flight. Only 3- 5 minutes walk from railway station, bus station, walkways to Westpac Stadium, Parliament and the start of the shopping in Lampton Quay. Two New World supermarkets within 10 minutes walk, next door to a 'Subway', with a good pub on the next corner and MacDonalds just down the... More
