I booked this hotel because I wanted to be within walking distance of the city attractions and the bus and railroad terminal (which are together). The hotel is close to everything - minutes to the Te Papa Museum, Wellington Museum, Cable Car and Carter Observatory, the Beehive, and the railroad terminal which also services Intercity bus travel (a highly popular rated grocery store is located within the terminal - definitely recommended). Shuttle from the airport is just 20NZ.
The hotel was a real value, the best for my money in New Zealand (I stayed at 7 different hotels on my ski and surf trip in August 2011). The rooms were professionally decorated with duvets on the beds, big screen tvs on the walls, ample desk areas, light wood panels, upscale colors and details, and modern bathroom fixtures (teak- like flooring, corian counter tops, clear glass shower doors and euro shower fixtures). Definitely recommended.
