The whole experience of staying at Ohtel was amazing - from the friendly front of house to the amazing room and amenities and the location. I couldn't have picked a better place to stay for the night.

Wonderful little hotel near the water, the museum, the restaurants, and most everything else in Wellington (if you can walk a few blocks). The decor was designed by the architect builder/owner, and he did a wonderful job. Prices are reasonable and food in the small hotel cafe is good. The staff was very friendly and helpful and added much to...

Nice little boutique hotel right on the edge of town. Great access for us for the morning ferry. Nice modern contemporary design, lovely fresh crisp sheets in the room and lovely toiletries. We were in a ground floor room at the back so easy to access with our cases. Free unlimited wifi.

I saw this hotel a few years ago on Tablet hotels and wondered if I'd ever get a chance to stay there. My husband and I are huge MCM fans and this is one of the few hotels that's so beautifully designed around MCM furniture and artwork. Our host was very kind and welcoming. My only regret is that we...

Hi Jules, It's great you were finally able to come and check out our original mid-century furniture in person, all good things take time... Hopefully you'll be able to visit Wellington again soon and enjoy not just Ohtel, but all this great little city has to offer. Alan

Highly recommend this quaint hotel. Excellent accommodations and outstanding service. They have food and beverage service within the lobby and very friendly assistance with any needs. This hotel went above and beyond. Definitely will be back.

Hi Lisa, What a hectic time you had with fog closing the airport - can't quite believe you caught an Uber from Auckland to Wellington to make your meeting ! Anyway, glad you finally made it to the Capital, and we were able to help you recover between appointments. Alan

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...
