My husband and I had a very good experience at Aitken on Mulgrave, thanks to the cleanliness of the rooms, convenience of the location, free wireless internet, value for the money, and helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. The hotel is located right at the beginning of Lambton Quay and just 2 blocks from the train station, so it is...

I found this place on the internet and thought that it looked quite nice and seemed cheap, it was exactly that.......cheap! Wasnt comfortable, no where to watch tv other than on your bed, there was a table and hard wooden chairs but the mount that the tv was on was broken and impossible to position to watch from there. There...

Stayed for 3 nights over Easter for Rock 2 Wellington. Very close to everything, the stadium is like 2 mins away, parliament, supermarket, shopping, trains. So close, so was very happy. Cant blame them for the guy doing the Huka at 3am one morning, police sorted to him. We were really happy with the room and am amazed how many...

Was a bit worried before we arrived as I had already booked before reading the latest negative reviews so didn't know what to expect. After reading about the noise from the construction site I sent off a last minute email requesting a room away from this area. The results were a bigger than average corner room away from the construction....

Location: The Aitken is located on the north end of the downtown Wellington area. It's about a 5 minute walk to the parliament buildings and about a 15 - 20 minute walk to the Te Papa museum. There's a supermarket about 2 blocks to the north and the train station (and shuttle to the Interislander ferry) is about 2 blocks...

My wife and I stayed here for one night only, and I would recommend it only for very short stays. The neighborhood seems a bit sketchy and is loud. We arrived after the lobby was closed, and had to dig for our key in the drop box, since we were never given a passcode. The room is very, very small...

I'll start off with saying that it is an excellent hotel, overall, and in a very convenient area. Now to launch into the negatives: Construction next door. Our room was on the 5th floor. How convenient they were building an office building right next door (could have climbed out the window onto the scaffolding) and were busy pouring the 5th...

Same as most reviews! Great location near to beehive and the Tepapa musuem, tramp stops, Also just beside all the embassies and government offices! Yes it is a budget place with no luxury, but the rooms are fully loaded with all the day to day things you need (Fridge, Washing machine, Dishwasher, Ironing board, DvD player, Music system, Sky TV,...

We booked the Aitken on the strong reviews on Trip Advisor. While it is exactly what it is supposed to be, it's definitely not the 4th best hotel in Wellington! It's a budget traveler's hotel, and has sparce and small accommodations (hard bed, tiny shower, etc) But, it is very clean, very functional, and nicely situated. And, as everyone else...
