Excellent location & service

Early check in, location, great service
We were arriving early to store our luggages prior to check in, but the staff allowed us to checked in early (4 hours earlier), & we couldnt be thankful enough for that. For a 3 star hotel, we didnt expect much, but we're grateful with the excellent service given by the front desk staffs, & the rooms (even though it was quite small). It's also a convenient to us since there were many Malaysian/halal restaurants around (Rasa Malaysia & BurgerFuel were literally next door) & lots of halal restaurants at the Courtney Pl. Overall, we're happy with our stay & definitely will be back to the same hotel.

Excellent hotel but.........

Price, location, staff
The hotel is fabulous. The staff are great. The rooms are fit for purpose. But.... Why, oh why, oh why do you insist on taking a $25 or was it $50 holding fee off me just in case I charge something to the room? You didn't ask for it the last time I stayed. There are two bottles of water in the room they say. Take them out, I don't want them. You may have breakfast they say. If I do, then I'll pay for it there and then and I'm sure your breakfast is nice but I'm in Wellington and there are hundreds of places to have breakfast. After a discussion about why they want it and why I don't feel I should have to pay it. The duty manager then put a cash only note on my room and took a photocopy of my driving liecence, so I didn't need to leave a deposit. Good! Why the fuss about so little you may ask? It doesn't bother me about the money as I can afford it. What about the people on a tight budget? This could be sizable chunk of their budget. Now the hotel will tell you they credit it back to your card when you check out. Maybe they do. In my experience it takes the bank at least 3 working days for it to be credited back to your account. Again, somebody on a tight budget can ill afford for this to happen. Lets say a person was doing a trip around New Zealand and stayed in 5 hotels in 5 different cities on 5 consecutive days. You could end up being $250 out of pocket until it starts to trickle back into your account. My sugestion for the hotels is STOP IT and get with the rest of the world. Reception says, "Sir, Madame. Would you like to put a cash deposit on your room so that if you order something to your room you will not have to worry about payment straight away?" Guest says, "No thank you." Reception says, "No problem, we'll just keep your room set to cash only. Here are your keys and enjoy your stay." Guest, "Thank you." EASY AS! Get it SORTED!

Good location but noisy on a Saturday night

Location, clean and comfortable bed
We arrived late on a Saturday night and the streets are buzzing with people late into the night. We got a room on the highest floor (3rd floor) but we can still hear noises coming from downstairs. Luckily we were tired from the long drive and not cause a problem. As we arrived late, there was no inside parking (it's $25 per night even for outside parking) and I would not recommend to park it outside on a Saturday night as one of our side mirror got damaged by some inconsiderate people that may have been drinking too much. Not a good experience. Luckily there was an available lot inside and we shifted our car in. The location of the hotel was great though, easy walking to many places and many good places to eat along Cuba street.

Nice stay

location, location, location
Just perfect. The only complaint is parking. It is hard to find parking as it is located at the heart of Cuba street but you can request for secure parking for $25 per day.
