Great location!

Location, room and kitchen
8.7
Stayed in the private room, better than what we expected. It's spacious enough for us, clean and comfortable. Bathroom and kitchen were acceptable, but there were someone took our food from the freezer even we have a note of our name and room no.! The TV room has a homeless guy sleeping there, so it was lacked of comfort to watch TV because he was snoring! The location was superb, just opposite Bluebridge ferry terminal and the railway station (supermarket was there) and few minutes walk to Beehive and Te Papa Museum.

The location was fantastic!! But the hotel is too old-windows let in tons of cold air, bed was all springs-not sure if it could even be considered a bed, room was small & uncomfortable. I thought it was going to be a cool old Hollywood hotel, but it was just rundown.

My sister and I loved the courtesy and helpfulness showed to us during our short stay. The food from the cafe on site was flavourful and a good price. The room was comfortable and clean. The location is so central to everything we wanted to do. Thanks so much.

Average stay

Opp ferry terminal, lounge

Room is quite small for a 6-bed dorm and the bunk beds squeak with small movements. Lounge area is one of the largest I've seen, good for reading & chilling. Quite a walk to main shopping/f&b area but it's really fine just enjoy the view along the way.
Raymond D. Couples New Zealand, April 14, 2014
Close to ferry terminal.

Proximity to ferry. Great bar. Comfortable rooms.
