Very handy to cafes, nightlife, restaurants etc. Friendly staff on desk with fast check in. Rooms are well appointed with all necessities including kitchen and lounge facilities and reasonably comfortable bed. Clean and tidy. Can... More

Arrived late morning and receptionist extremely friendly - wasn't expecting my room to be ready but it was. Bit of a rabbit warren finding the room as you had to go through an exit door - then through another unmarked door but eventually found it. Room was as advertised - clean, tidy and well appointed Wi-Fi was part of my... More

I stayed here on a Friday night recently. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The check in process was enjoyable and easy. The room was clean and tidy. The price was very reasonable for central city accommodation. The location is within walking distance from cafes, restaurants and great shopping. It was quiet and pleasant. It makes a great base for... More

We had two nights at Astelia recently, good location on Willis Street, handy to lots of cafes, bars and restaurants and opposite the new food court. The young woman on the desk was lovely, welcoming and friendly. Our queen studio room was spacious and quiet, with a very comfortable bed, an armchair and a table with two dining chairs. One...

You cant beat Wellington on a good day, but yes a coat is an essential item, being in such a great location it can always be a great excuse to do some shopping. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and have passed on the great feedback. More

There are lots of theatres in Wellington City Centre too. The Art Deco Embassy Theatre is the most famous but there are others. Room was well appointed, super clean... More

An easy to get anywhere site for city apartments!! Clean & comfortable with friendly front office staff, we were very pleased after initial hick up & given the wrong room on first night, & this was corrected next morning. Perfect for our 4 night stay in city for a family wedding.

The desk is only manned 8 am to 8 pm, with swipe access after hours. It was a bit of a worry when we arrived at midnight, with prior arrangement to collect the... More

We stayed during the Cricket World Cup and were very happy with our decision to save some money. Eleven out of ten for staff friendliness and willingness to help. Our room was ready ahead of time and check in and out was fast. The room was a little dated and we were on the second floor and could hear a... More
