We had a lovely long weekend here. We had a two bedroom apartment which suited our family perfectly. Excellent location only a few doors away from Countdown which was so convenient. A short walk to Te Papa, Beehive etc along with cafes and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. The only negative was the wifi, with teenage kids this is...

Great room and location but I did find the location quite noisy. The night I was there the street cleaner machine was working away for an hour or so followed by the recycling truck which sorted each bottle one by one into the truck. I should have brought some ear plugs! Room was lovely and clean and breakfast was also...

On a 2 day trip to Wellington with a busy schedule ahead we chose to stay in style booking an executive suite at the City Life apartments. We were checked into what felt like a bunker - an underground room with little or no natural light. My wife has gone into more details in another review. For me the $800...

Average for the cost. The rooms were clean and tidy, There was a distinct lack of TV channels and they didn't work that well as remotes were of a poor quality. Not a good booking experience via the phone,

Check in started well overhearing the three people in front of me all receive a complementary room upgrade. I was then granted access to what was by far the smallest hotel room I have had in anywhere in NZ. Travelling for business I am relaxed about just having a comfortable place to sleep so that wouldn't have been the end...
