The locality is the only positive factor for this hotel. Otherwise our room was very average and dark with no outlook. The shower while good leaked over the small bathroom floor. The whole place reeked of air freshener and was very dated and tired. The bar and lounge area adjacent to reception was very uninviting and appeared to be never used. Overall this was the least desirable of other similar properties we have stayed in Wellington.

Dear guest, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback. While I am pleased to hear that you found the location central for your needs, I am sorry to hear that we weren't able to meet your expectations on this occasion. I believe if the concerns were raised during your stay, we would have been in a better position to remedy any areas of your experience to make it better. While our restaurant is currently not operating due to changes as a result of Covid-19, we hope to resume our breakfast service in the near future. On the other hand, we still offer beverages in the bar or room service with happy hour in place. However I am pleased to advise you that our refurbishment is already underway which we believe it will change the overall look and the feel of our rooms in the near future. Regards Oytun Hotel Manager

We loved the view directly down over Lambton Quay and that we could walk out of our apartment right into the middle of a busy city with most things walking distance. Our apartment was a generous size for the 5 of us.

This was our first stay in Wellington and we were so pleased to have chosen CityLife. We were upgraded from a studio to an apartment and felt pretty special. Bed was very comfy with our favourite crisp sheets. Bathroom very clean, great shower and complimentary products - especially the soap. Front line staff friendly and helpful. Parking at adjacent Wilson car park was good, with reasonable space.
