What an incredible hotel. If you like being surrounded by art, this is your place. It's so unique with the bar and reception blending into one. Everytime you enter or leave the hotel you'll see something you hadn't noticed before. We had booked a room with water views but unfortunately the renovations hadn't finished before we arrived so they upgraded...

I guess this place was great in its early days, however I question the dark design as found it difficult to read signs especially in the lifts. I understand it was independent until sold to QT a year go and is currently undergoing refurbishment which is not ideal for paying customers! We checked in and reception experience perfect. Our harbour...

Perfect location close to waterfront and right across the street from the museum. Good restaurant and good staff. Five minute drive from the Picton Ferry so if you're heading over to Nelson and Abel Tasman it's very convenient.

Checked in for a high end room with a balcony with a view of the Harbor. But due to "renovations", not avaiable. Was provide an apartment with a view of a garage being torn down, and no balcony. They provide an "accommodation" of $10/bottle Champagne that I wouldn't have drank in College. Then proceeded to bring someone else's luggage to...

We are locals but booked three rooms for ourselves and extended family to celebrate our son's birthday. The location is fabulous near Te Papa, the waterfront and many restaurants. Our room was an executive two bedroom suite for our family of four with two kids, and for the elder generation we had an executive studio with sea views and an...

Great hotel. A combination of design and functionality. The hotel designed as an art museum however, the rooms are equipped for maximum comfort; Coffee maker, washing machine and dryer - very important if you come to New Zealand for a long time and your clothing start to run out. Highly recommend

We stayed here with our toddler and other family members. The location is ideal, and made it easy to walk to Te Papa, the waterfront, and good restaurants and shopping. Our room was cute and comfortable, and they provided a nice crib for our son. We had a wonderful few days in Wellington. But I would especially like to call...

Always love staying at Museum Art Hotel! Great quirky hotel and is fun walking around looking at their various art pieces. Rooms are nice and have all the facilities. Is close to things like Te Papa (across the road) and the center of Wellington CBD.

I was upgraded to an executive room at check in which turned out to be a one bedroom apartment. It included a separate, large soaking tub and a kitchen that had a washer/dryer in it. It was lovely - comfortable bed & nice sheets. I definitely recommend it !
