Booked a suite for hen's night. Price was good but room did not look like photo. The room was really old looking and lighting was terrible. It made the room look worse. When I booked the roomI said it was for a hen's night. On Saturday night their noise policy is endorsed from 9 pm, usually on a Saturday it's...

Just a three minute walk to the harbour and the waterfront resturants, CityLife Hotel is next to main shops, coffee shops, historical places and the Cable Car base. Interesting that reception is on top level 6 and vehicle arrival is by there, while the ground floor is the entrance to the hotel from street level. Room was small but comfortable...

City Life Wellington is in a great location with a pedestrian access off Lambton Quay & a vehicle entrance above at the back which is also quite accessible. Our 2 bedroom apartment was quite comfortable although quite dated in the decor. Friendly helpful staff made our stay a very good experience.

Always great staying here. All staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is a problem. Great central location to Wellington tourist spots, easy walking to Cuba Mall, Te Papa, Museums, Beehive, and the water front.

The double bedroom apartment was great, however decor and fixtures worn out and dated, but it was clean. The oven did not work, electrical intermittent fault which needs addressing quickly for health and...

Awesome. Great. I really loved staying here. The location is right in the middle of the shops but it is not noisy. Room was a good size for the three of us with all the facilities you could want. Happy hour was good. We met a couple from the UK and talked for way too long about a huge range...

My friend and I stayed here 3 nights ago. We were overwhelmed at the up-grade we did not expect, even tho we were only here for one night. We had the best time ever. The room was the size of an apartment, it was comfortable, clean, fairly modern and spacious. The staff were very accommodating and even let us have...

Stayed here 4 days early January, found the hotel to be in great location for cafes, bars and shopping. Also bus to/from airport is right outside the door. We were early for check in and our room wasn't ready so they promptly put us in a room that was ready, great work by the friendly receptionist. Parking looked a bit...

We arrived on an early flight and left on an evening plane. The staff did everything possible to get us into a room early and ensure our departure was a late as possible - thanks. This hotel is right in the middle of the shopping district. - Great location for shoppers
