“This place is wonderful”
Reviewed March 5, 2009

At Home makes you feel at home. It has everything. It is modern, perfect location next to Te PaPa, gym, internet, kitchen, washer, big room, balcony, parking, comfortable bed and very friendly and accomodating hosts. This is the first time I have written up a place on Trip Advisor, but I thought it was imperative since this place is so good.

Only stayed for one night but we did feel right at home with Leanne's warm service and the comfy apartments. Good location, very central and easy to walk to restaurants and shops etc. (we had a great breakfast at Floriditas on Cuba St). Our room was a studio apartment with a kitchenette and separate bathroom. Nice big flat screen TV, free wifi, all you'd need - although no bathtub, and the shower pressure was not great. No big downsides though and I would definitely stay here again.

From booking to arrival to stay, this hotel differentiated itself as being superior.
At last Wellington has a hotel that befits its status as a capital city.
I won t stay elsewhere in Wellington.

First up the location is brilliant- handy to Te Papa (National Museum of NZ), the waterfront, supermarkets, entertainment areas, shopping precincts and within an easy waterfront walk to most business offices in Wellington (and that waterfront stroll has got to be one of the best commutes in the world!)
What works for me next are the very generous rooms with ALL of the facilities you might need IN YOUR ROOM such as washer, TV, generous cupboards, crockery, cutlery, indoor and outdoor easting areas.Free wifi- Thank you! Stunning balcony areas which do make you feel at home are a superb feature.
If I wanted i could open up my balcony doors and hear the traffic, shipping and plane noises of a capital city. A great atmospheric connection with the city. With the doors closed, I found that the hotel was quiet with nil disturbances from anyone.

Top this with the friendly, welcoming and passionate staff.

This is a hotel that wont work for everybody, however. If you are seeking a standard hotel with room service, porters et al, then dont. If you are looking for a place that tries to make you feel you belong and you are at home, then "at home" is it. For business travellers and families perfect.

My only criticism is the lack of online booking facilities but this is forgiven when you experience the fast and friendly online and phone booking

Sure to become a very popular hotel.

I absolutely loved it here. It has the best location of all the places we looked at staying and we got quite a good weekend deal. Sure, there's no "in house" restaurant, but there are loads of amazing places just around the corner (great late-night sushi) or a few blocks over on Cuba Street (Matterhorn is a must!) All the rooms have a balcony, and there was patio furniture out there as well to enjoy if the weather hadn't been so crummy. It was clean, it was private...I can't say enough good things about this place- I know where I'll be staying any time I visit Wellington! Bypass the other places- this one has it all!

  • Liked — The privacy, location, and great price
  • Disliked — Not a lot of off street parking available, which would have posed a problem had it not been a weekend.

Terrific place nestled in the heart of Wellington. My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our way to the South Island and loved this property.The apartments are very well kept and ours faced the Te Papa Museum with an outdoor deck. The kitchenette is well stocked with a wide variety of teas, coffee and anything you need to cook. We were able to do all our meals in the apartment--which was nice and saved a lot of money!

This is a great place to stay for the price especially if you're tired of the hotel experience. The staff is very friendly and will help you with directions and anything else you need. We got a free pass at the parking garage across the street from the hotel.

It is really a stylish yet warm home in Wellington. It is a lovely boutique hotel/ apartment that has everything, a large balcony, a small kitchen, wall mount LCD TV, fridge, washing machine, hair dryer etc, and even the architectural detail in the room is nicely finished. It is also a quiet place that provide you the privacy and freedom during travelling as you will have your own key and swipe card to access the building. Yet above all the good quality, it is only 1 min walk to Te Papa museum and Courtnay Place. We find the staff are all very friendly.

It really live to its name as boutique apartment, recommended for all.

  • Liked — Clean modern style, in city centre location.

Great boutique hotel. Extremely spacious, with warm service. One of the managers received a huge bouquet of flowers, and because she was allergic to them, gave them to my colleague, because the latter was in the biggest room. Given the right price, I'll certainly stay here again.
