The Ibis is a clean, modern hotel located in the heart of Wellington. It is just a few blocks away from the cable car, and the major streets are also within easy walking distance. Wellington is a fairly compact city, and it is best to walk as parking can be difficult to find and also costly.
We had a standard room which was a bit small but enough for two people. Wi-fi was also free while in the hotel lobby. Guest laundry facilities were available, which was great for travelers like us on a long road trip. The machines were token operated, with detergent included. If you do have a car, I would recommend paying the extra fee for a parking spot. The hotel has underground parking, but there are only a limited number of spots. I saw this noted in another review, so contacted the hotel ahead of time to book a spot. Without that parking, I’m not sure where else I could have parked our car, as there didn’t seem to be many other options nearby.
Bottom line is the Ibis is an excellent hotel, well located and at a reasonable price. I had considered other Wellington hotels with similar positive reviews but ultimately decided on the Ibis as it was significantly cheaper. In the end, my wife and I were very happy with our stay and felt the Ibis was the best value of all the places we stayed at during our 2-week trip in NZ.
