Loved our stay here for 2 nights in a deluxe room; hands down the best hotel we've stayed at in Wellington. All of the staff were wonderful, our room was so quiet with next to no traffic noise. And none of that typical over-used hotel syndrome, it all feels new and clean and boutique. Definitely recommended.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your recommendation - my staff and I work hard to keep things looking fresh, so it's good to have some positive feedback on this aspect.

We recently escaped from the teenagers to spend a night away at Ohtel. We can't speak highly enough about the hotel itself, the rooms and the staff. Ohtel rates up there with any of the stylish boutique hotel we have stayed in around the world. Our mid-century retro styled room was huge, well set out and comfortable. The pieces of mid-century furniture from G-Plan sideboard to Arne Jacobsen dinning suite were well sourced and certainly set the hotel apart from your normal, hotel-chain experience, and offers a real sense of style. For those who don't know Wellington, the hotel is ideally located within easy walking distance of Te Papa, Waitangi Park, Wellington Waterfront and numerous restaurants and bars. Although it is literally around the corner from the night-life of Courtney Place place, being situated on Oriental Parade it's still quiet and peaceful. We highly recommend Ohtel to anyone visiting Wellington and to any locals who are looking for a quiet night away. Thanks Alan and team - Mike & Jude, Wellington.

Hi Jude and Mike,

Escaping teenagers... there's an idea !! We often host locals over the weekend as tourists in their own city - a little down-time without the hassle of travel etc.

Glad you enjoyed "your space. our place."

We got an upgrade to deluxe room and we loved it immediately. The Staff was great and really polite and their hospitality was amazing. And minibar was awesome. Never seen that good of a minibar. Special thanks to Felicity and Stephanie and all people at the front desk.

Hi JPS,

Glad you went for our $19 room upgrade, always subject to availability on check-in... make sure you leave a little in the budget to give the gourmet minibar a good nudge !!

Ohtel is run by very friendly and helpful people. It's just that bit more than a plain hotel. Staying at Ohtel is like dining at a locally-owned restaurant rather than a chain restaurant. You get all the trimmings but with the local flair and flavour added. Highly recommended - we'll be back.

Room Tip: The view is worth it - great view of Wellington city and waterfront.
