We stayed there for two nights and it wasnt good at all. When we entered the room we found rubish on the floor and windows that were not cleaned for ages. The room itself was quit ok. A big bed and a table and a terrible bathroom. The bathroom had no door. So if one of us went to the...

Well, I wish I could give this place 5 stars but I can't. Although the staff at the reception are very friendly and are to be commended for this, the hotel itself is the veritable little hotel that......well, not sure it even tried! It needs some extra care and attention, I feel. I arrived very tired and was very nicely...

Hi Jeffrey, We decided not to include breakfast in our rates, as this would have the effect of pushing up room rates for guests that prefer to check out some of the nearby cafes for their morning meal. Ohtel is not a B & B. I'm not sure how to respond to the balance of your review under the circumstances.....

I was lucky enough to have been gifted a nights stay at the beautiful boutique Hotel for a special occasion. Situated perfectly at the beginning of Oriental Parade made it easy to take a short walk to enjoy Wellington's night life. The antique mixed with a modern touch décor made the room very comfortable and was a key point of...

We loved this place. Boutique hotel right on the waterfront so very easy to walk everywhere. Loved the mid- century decor, great breakfast & very friendly staff. Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom including bathtub. Highly recommend

In spite of a very nice location in a good walking city, this hotel was the biggest accommodation disappointments of our trip to New Zealand. The rooms are small and over crowded with what our receptionist called the owner's "antique furniture" (mid-seventies Ikea). There is very little on street parking. You can have your car valet- parked somewhere off site...

Hi Linda, I'm disappointed to hear your thought your 36 sqm/387 sqft Deluxe Room was too small. If you had raised it with us, we could have checked the availability of one our 45sqm/484 sqft Suites and moved you across. Most guests enjoy the aesthetic of original mid-century (50's and 60's) pieces over mass-produced modern Ikea furniture which doesn't feature...

Me and a few mates stayed here one night - and in one of our suites we got a hot-tub! That was a great night! The bathrooms could use more privacy - but if you sing a little tune the sounds don't bother ya. The hostess was gracious, the lobby cafe was inviting and the rooms are very comfortable and...

This is a small hotel, it's quiet, in a fantastic location, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean with really great decor.

Hi Mo, Sorry you had to experience the rocking and rolling - really pleased with the way those in-house responded when I called them individually just after midnight to check on their well-being. As you say, not the slightest bit of damage to Ohtel - generally the prevailing situation throughout the town. Decades of planning and designing for events like...

My husband and I were visiting Wellington for the long weekend, and we wanted a place we could explore Wellington from. Most of the major hotel chains are located in the "business" side of Wellington, and boy were we glad we went with Ohtel instead! The area Ohtel is at is the "fun" bits of the city for the weekend;...

What a unique and wonderful place. The decor is amazing, all the facilities are superb, and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone, both locals and visitors! The mid-century styling really sets this hotel apart from anywhere else I've ever stayed, and the service was impeccable.
