I booked a room here - had admired it but thought it was probably out of my financial reach. But apex than many I would consider peer hotel's - and you get SO MUCH MORE! I had the cheapest room, a studio. Room was surprisingly large, beautifully decorated in NZ kiwiana, and totally quiet, with masses of Sky tv channels....

Hi Biddy, Thanks for providing all of your feedback in such an enthusiastic way - it's great to receive such a detailed review that includes a couple of work-ons. Will get my Wi-Fi guy to come and check why Room 1's signal isn't as strong as elsewhere in the building. Thanks for letting us know. Alan

My husband and I stayed here in December on our honeymoon and Ohtel surpassed our expectations in every way possible. The location is prime, the views are great, and the design is beautiful! From the moment you enter you feel as if you have arrived somewhere very special. The rooms are warm, spacious, and tastefully decorated. The attention to detail...

Stayed here two for 2 nights and wanted to stay much longer. The room had such a lovely vibe. Mid century modernist furniture. Muted colours. Great layout. Freindly and helpful staff. No wonder they were fully booked when I wanted to extend!

This lovely little hotel is so great I have stayed there twice over the last few months. The location is unbeatable and there is nothing boring about either the hotel or the city.

We loved our recent two-night stay at the Ohtel at the start of our trip. Gorgeous room w/view of harbor, lovely and authentic mid-century furnishings and a delicious breakfast and coffee. When the airline lost our bags, they were able to provide on loan two adapters that worked with our US plugs so we were able to charge our phones....

My room had a great view of the water / harbour and the hotel itself is centrally situated. The room is well appointed and extremely modern, didn't love the carpet though, it felt a bit dated / dirty.
