Lot many hotels to choose from in Willis Street. This one is right on intersection of Dixon Street & Willis Street. Earlier called as Abel Tasman. I had booked rooms in this hotel for my friends who were visiting from India. The rooms are spacious and staff is friendly. They offered me discount, as I had done direct booking and...

Great for a weekend in Wellington - chandeliers in the hallways, strong shower, comfortable beds, easy access into the hotel after sampling the bars late on Courtenay Place, and a lovely church right across the road for Sunday morning. The sprawling, slightly dirty but colourful Capital Markets are a few doors down offering a huge range of mainly Asian food...

Nice hotel and friendly helpful staff. Great location on Willis Street, being quite central to waterfront, Te Papa and Central Wellington. Very adequate room. Would not hesitate to go back in the future and quite reasonable price even when only booked 1-2 days in advance

I stayed for one night for business. The rooms are ok, recently decorated and spacious. My room was right on the street and it was a bit noisy but I managed to sleep. The bed was comfortable. The hotel is well situated for everything in the CBD. I thought it was a little over priced for what it was, but...

The beds are very soft and if youre in a single its a very small single. The sheets are quite soft though. The hotel is in a good location and offers free usage of the nearby 4 level Les Mills gym. Beware Contiki use this hotel when in town so there can be some noise at night.

The last time I stayed at this hotel it was a less than pleasant experience with the condition of the rooms being rather poorer than expected however it seems to have had a makeover and it was a pleasant experience this time.

Lovely staff and very clean hotel. Room was adequate ... a little dated and cramped for the money being charged. Central to downtown Wellington. Traffic noise at night is also greater than you would expect for this price range ... even on the 7th floor. I have stayed in more modern and cheaper facilities in the similar location in Wellington...

Spent a few nights here, the hotel is located on one of the main streets of wellington and right next to capital market food court which was a bonus when hungry. The room was a decent size for a standard however the bathroom was not as clean or modern as I hoped. A bit of black mould around the edges...

I roomed with 3 other girls and man the room was definitely cramped. You can definitely tell that an extra room was added. Not only that, our room wasn't even ready... Check in time is usually 2PM, we came at 4pm and we waited 20-30 minutes..... Not impressed with this place.
