Price is pretty decent and affordable and the room is pretty good, with cable tv, a fridge and facilities to make your own coffee or tea in the... More

The room was lovely and well presented. Perfect size for just me (double bed with an ensuite bathroom). Heard no noise whatsoever all night. I was able to store luggage when I first arrived as I made it into Wellington a lot earlier than I anticipated. Had an amazing brekkie in the morning where you could build your own breakfast...

The service was great and the room was uncomfortable. The bistro breakfast was reasonably priced and sufficient. Unfortunately though I was woken up by a group of drunk men at midnight and then again at 5am.

Room is nice and a cute bathroom. Loved how clean it is. The place has a warm and cozy feel to it. Location is really great too, you have to walk very little to get to some real cool places. Cute windows that give you a little view of the streets and bustle.
