I don't know which apartments are featured here or on the facility's website, but they're nothing like the tacky, dirty, poorly maintained third-world rooms we encountered at the Southern Cross. The manager is kind and tried moving us twice to stem my intense allergies to the filth, but each apartment was worse than the last. Simple things to clean, like...

Excellent location, it's a shame the walls and windows, even on the 7th floor, are thin enough to hear even the slightest noise at street level. Garbage truck start to arrive around 6am without fail. It was almost impossible to sleep without ear plugs. Desk staff are super friendly.

I checked in on a Saturday and the lady working was extremely lovely. I was able to check in two hours earlier which worked out perfectly. Room size was fine (I was alone) so it didn't bother me much. Shower is in an awkward spot but it was clean & had good pressure. The blinds definitely needed a good clean...

Stayed here recently. Checkin was quick and efficient. Ladies in reception were very friendly. Room 510. Room was comfortable. Access in and out of shower was difficult in small space. A bit of mould on shower wall. Great water pressure in shower. The vent in the window rattled throughout the night. Walls in apartment need a wipe over, also the...

The rooms are not huge but for 2 of us there was ample room, double bed should be a queen but it was fresh sheets & firm, bathroom has all necessities & not being too big not lot to mess, kitchenette has all 2 people need. It you like to open windows then this could be a problem.

My girl friend and I booked this apartment which was advertised as 1:5 bed serviced apartment. And technically, it is. One double bed shoved against the wall to create space, and one single bed in the other tiny room. The Tv is the size of a small pc monitor, the couch can barely fit two people..... just. No dishwasher or...

We wanted a reasonably-priced and easily accessible place to stay in during our one-week visit to Wellington. It also had to be within walking distance to our daughter's apartment and to other tourist attractions. Southern Cross Serviced Apartments more than met all our requirements. We had a delightful and very comfortable stay and would definitely book here the next time...

Stayed for 3 nights as tourists in Wellington. The apartment was adequate and achieved what we wanted, albeit somewhat impersonal (I did feel a bit like a student dorm style). We arrived late and the key was in the box as instructed so that was easy. I'd read a few reviews commenting on the noise from the bar below at...

Rooms clean and everything you need for short stay. Rooms freshly painted but as expected an old building a few blocks from te papa but short walk to Cuba mall. We were on 5 th floor and end of long corridor and the gap under entry door allowed other rooms cooking smells into our room which wasn't so good. Greeted...
