This was my fourth or fifth stay here; I now try to stay at Ohtel whenever I can. I travel a lot for work, and have grown tired of soulless, chain hotels. In this respect, Ohtel is real breath of fresh air . . an oasis that makes being away from home so much more bearable.
Having lived in Wellington, I agree with the other reviewer who said that "Ohtel is Wellington personified in a hotel" - it has the same sort of character and vibe that makes Wellington so special.
Alan, the proprietor is a great host and the pride and passion for his hotel is evident. The location is great - Courtenay Place, Waitangi Park, Oriental Parade, Freyberg Pool are all just a stone's throw away. I have stayed in both Studio and Junior Suite and both were great . . though of course the Junior Suite is a real treat - an experience best shared I think! Both rooms have great decor, great bathrooms, and very comfy beds.
I look forward to staying again sometime soon.
