Distinction Wellington Century City Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

After driving from Auckland, we were excited to spend some time in Wellington. When we got to the hotel, we went to our room and the bed wasn't made. We travelled down to the front desk and explained we didn't think the room was ready yet. Turns out, the hotel was getting brand new mattresses. Due to the mishap, they upgraded our room from a studio to a one bedroom. The room was great, in a nice part of downtown. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. A great place to stay.

Very clean, very modern 1-bedroom apartment in a good area of town, close to Courtenay Place and all the restaurants there. 90% of Wellington is walkable, and this hotel will leave you close to most of it. Front desk staff was very friendly, and very helpful. Close to Moore Wilsons (upscale grocery store, like Whole Foods but with more selection), coffee, restaurants, bars. Shower was great, washing/drying machine was in the room (but we had some issues with it running for hours for a wash cycle) and cleaned the clothes. Paid NZ$30 for 72 hours of internet access - have no idea if this is a reasonable price. There is free wifi available in the Central Business district, but this hotel is 2-3 blocks south of that free wi-fi zone. Parking was NZ$20/day, and we found that based on the size of the city, bus routes, taxis, and the hotel location, renting a car isn't necessary. The hotel has a deal with one local taxi company for NZ$20 airport runs (metered, it's about NZ$30). Ask for it. Overall, we'd stay there again.
