“Tops!”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

Perfect location, easy to drive to, right in the city for shopping and lots of good eating places nearby. It is an easy walk to the Westpac Stadium. The bar and cafe in the hotel are open late and it is handy being able to have food and drink available readily. The rooms were quiet and peaceful with no traffic noise.

Good hotel, friendly staff, good size rooms, close to shops and public transport, easy to get around on foot or by public bus.

Room Tip: A good choice at modest price!

I spent 2 nights at the Ibis. I chose the hotel due to the economical price and because the manager has responded to so many Trip Advisor reviews. I had a double room (spacious). The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Air-conditioning and heat, which I controlled. The staff were super friendly and helpful. There is no gym, but guests may use a local gym (LesMills) and the gym at the Novotel -- free of charge.

Great location too.

Internet was expensive.

Basic but clean and well laid out room, bed was pretty average as the two singles they put together to
Make a king kept seperating. Overall though a great base in a great central location

Dear ryanandsophie,

Thank you for your comments regarding the King beds at the hotel, these King Zip beds are a specially designed bed for hotels that zip together and allow the flexibility of two king single beds or one Super King Mattress in the room and I am sorry that this did not meet your expectations.

Kind regards,

Found this hotel on Tripadivsor and booked it based on good reviews. This is well located on Featherston St which in the CBD. Can easily walk from here to so many locations. Also has many cafes and restaurants close by to get food other than at the hotel. The enetertainment & main food precinct in Courtenay Pl and Cuba St are only 10-15 minutes walk which is pleasant and interesting as the streetscape is visually really stimulating.

Hotel is a little dated but recent refurbishment has modernised it and it feels like a pleasant enough business/value hotel. Just a shame there is no on-site gym facility - you can access a Les Mills Gym (free for hotel guests) but that's a 5 or so minute walk away which is a hassle especially you only want a quick and quiet workout. There is no free in-room wi-fi. If they did that would influence my booking decisions in future.

Taxi rank right outside is really handy for getting to airport; means you do not have to book ahead. Use Greencabs (literally) as they are significantly cheaper than the Wellington Combined Taxis.

Dear FPL10,
It is always pleasing to read the positive comments our guests write about the property on Tripadvisor and thank you for giving us a go based on our reviews. Thank you also for your very informative comments regarding the location of the hotel to “Everything Wellington” and I am pleased to read that you approve of the refurbishment that took place in late 2009. Wi Fi is available in the hotel lobby and bar however you are correct that this is not offered in the guest rooms and I apologise for any inconvenience this caused you.

Kind regards,

Nathan Frost
