“Great Boutique Hotel in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Having stayed in larger hotels previously this is areal find. Small and funky with modern and rooms and well decorated with high quality lined and beds it is delightful place to stay. The huge two person bath and excellent water pressure in the shower are also great.

Brekafast in the lobby was nice and the coffee up to Wellington's very high standards.

Overall a fantastic place to stay.

Room Tip: Some rooms look directly over Wellington's beautiful harbor, one of this would be a bonus, but o...

This is a nice little boutique place to stay in Wellington, just a few minutes walk from the action. We received a warm welcome upon arrival, and were shown to our room with a view. We really liked the design and furnishings, definitely a differentiator for this place. There was also a great entertainment system in our room. If you're in a car, be sure to ask for advice from the staff about the best way to park nearby or simply use their valet parking service.

Totally recommend this hotel. The mid-century furnishings were initially the draw card, and I wasn't disappointed. The rooms were cosy and retro with all the mod cons. Tivoli and iTunes music selection on the tv. Free wi-fi. Lots of bathroom accessories from condoms to lint brushes. The big plus was you can walk to city stores, restaurants and sites from the Ohtel. It had a great view over city and bay and I would recommend this hotel and when in Wellington, stay here again. Staff are friendly and alwaysbtake the time to chat.
Ps Try 'The tasting room' in Courtney place, great place to eat/drink...

My husband and I have stayed in this wonderful boutique hotel twice now and would certainly go back each time we visit Wellington. It is right in the centre of Wellington, water views, and walking distance to all the sights, restaurants and shops. The staff are great, very friendly and made us feel very welcome and a part of the place. We loved sitting in the foyer area sipping a pinot noir and having the staff chat away to us. It is sooo much nicer than a hotel where you check in and that is the end of your contact with the staff. They recommended places to eat and things to do which suited us perfectly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with water view

If you are one of those people who likes to hang out in soulless, heartless bland hotels, where you are just a room number....don't stay here. If you don't like it when you walk downstairs, and someone who owns the place actually knows you name, don't stay here.

If on the other hand you love it when the place is refreshingly unique, personable, and makes you feel like a human of some consequence and meaning to their business, stay here.

This is perhaps my third stay at Ohtel, and there IS nowhere else to stay in Wellington. My room was bright, sunny, clean, charming, comfortable with an amazing view of the harbour and I felt so much a part of a great slice of Wellington, kids outside on skateboards, the sun and of course wind blowing in through, yes, an opening window.

We had a lovely pre-dinner snack in the downstairs dining space...delicious food and wine, great atmosphere. Alan also made us some breakfast on the go for our super early departure.

Will we stay again? DEFINITELY.

Room Tip: one with a view from the front of the hotel, double glazing make it quiet, window open give a breeze...
