We were lucky to get a room here on Very short notice and found it very convenient to the Airport. The management is very pleasant, the room we had (#7) was very large and well appointed with a front view. I suggest that if you reserve ahead that you request a front view room as I have noted other reviewers...

Hi Mike, Thanks so much for your positive feedback - so pleased you enjoyed the room and Ohtel's great location. Our front-facing rooms are certainly more popular with guests wanting a view over Waitangi Park and Chaffers Marina. Te Papa, good restaurants and cafes are just a short stroll away in Courtenay Place or further around Oriental Parade. Alan

A regular visitor to Welly, I found my favourite hotel booked out, so took a risk with Ohtel. (well, booking into somewhere that calls itself 'Ohtel' is clearly a risk. What a surprise! Very welcoming, and I think I was lucky to have scored a room on the top floor. Beautifully decorated, very spacious room, with a bathroom that would...

We stayed in one of the superior suites and just loved it. High attention to detail, with an amazing collection of mid-century furniture decorating the rooms and the hotel itself. Fantastic yet reasonably priced breakfast too, just to give us another excuse to linger in our room. When we did venture out, we found the location to be very handy...

Alan and the team are always welcoming and happy to see me, I feel like i am coming home every time I stay.

We stayed for three nights and the location was very good. Our room has one port window which was too small for an extended stay and the price we paid. We didn't ask for a room change so maybe that might have helped. Service was good. Decor is charming.

Hi Lou, A good reminder to guests to pick a room based on their needs. While the Studios are our cheapest option and fine for budget or corporate travellers, longer stays will enjoy the views/decks some of the rooms higher up the building offer. There are always upgrade opportunities on check-in, subject to availability - just ask us ! Alan

Stayed at the Ohtel in Wellington for a weekend get away. Excellent location on Oriental Pde puts it a stones throw from Te Papa and the CBD. The rooms are well appointed with a bit of a retro mid 60s theme, right down to a pair of complementary jandals instead of room slippers. Breakfast is available in the small reception...

What a great hotel! This hotel has style and class, but not at the expense of a friendly, homely welcome. Whether it be the 'in room -create your own cocktails', the enormous bath, the classy looking furniture, the delicious breakfast or a chat with the owner - thought and attention has gone into it all. This is the place to...

I booked a room here - had admired it but thought it was probably out of my financial reach. But apex than many I would consider peer hotel's - and you get SO MUCH MORE! I had the cheapest room, a studio. Room was surprisingly large, beautifully decorated in NZ kiwiana, and totally quiet, with masses of Sky tv channels....

Hi Biddy, Thanks for providing all of your feedback in such an enthusiastic way - it's great to receive such a detailed review that includes a couple of work-ons.

Stayed here two for 2 nights and wanted to stay much longer. The room had such a lovely vibe. Mid century modernist furniture. Muted colours. Great layout. Freindly and helpful staff. No wonder they were fully booked when I wanted to extend!
