“Certainly in our Top 10 Places to Stay...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Great location right on the waterfront and only a block or so to all the shops of the city.. Plus a very easy drive to the Ferry Terminals.. Certainly the décor of the Hotel is different but its a very good different giving the Hotel a great feeling of style and Grandeur.. All the staff were very friendly and always only too happy to help.. Our room was excellent with a balcony opening and over looking Wellington Harbour which was a superb view for afternoon drinks.. The room and all the Hotels facilities were well presented and very clean.. The rooms King size bed was perfect as was the bathroom facilities which had an excellent shower for those of us who enjoy a very long HOT shower with plenty of room to move.. After a long days driving and seeing some brilliant sights and scenery we decided to have dinner in our room using room service.. The meal was great, good value and it did not take to long to arrive.. For the price we paid compared to other Hotels we stayed at in New Zealand this was extremely good value..

Stayed at the hotel part of the complex for a night. It's a very unique hotel with vintage atmosphere and also heaps of art decorations etc. Great and friendly service and concierge. The location is wonderful just opposite Te Papa and walking distance to the harbour and Wellington CBD for great restaurants nearby. The room is somewhat a little small but nevertheless it is clean. The bed is comfortable and love how there is a pillow menu!

Stayed here Sunday night of Queens Birthday weekend, were going to Annie Show. When arriving at hotel on Saturday we were to early to check in 12.30pm. Thats fine we understand rooms need to be cleaned etc, the lady asked us if we would like to fill in paperwork now, great idea, paper work filled in,car parked,we asked if we could get a call or a text when rooms were ready as we had an early dinner & show,no problem. However 4.30 arrives still no word from Hotel, so we go back to try & get in, guess what paperwork lost & have to start again. No we will not I explained, you have taken my credit card imprint all my details,find it! After much searching it was found.Not the best start. We had a 2 bedroom apartment,with a little balcony,clean,tidy & good TV. I had asked if one of the beds in a room could be split into 2 singles,but this was not possible.Coffee machine crazy,complicated,no instructions. Porter man very nice to take bags to room,great art in hotel & very warm & cozy. Just the reception staff not the most friendly.

Stayed here for two nights last weekend. This is a perfect little boutique hotel centrally located in Wellington. It is full of lots of different art works which one of the staff informed me is changed regularly. The rooms are beautifully appointed with added little extras to make your stay feel special. It is also located in a prime spot for easy access to the CDB. If I go bak to Wellington this would now be my preferred place to stay. Ps. They staff are fabulous as well!!!

Great review. Thanks for staying. We are constantly trying to improve our general presentation. Michael Tuffery's BULL sculpture is our latest addition. It's very large, and believe it or not includes a BBQ?? Artistic License I guess.
We are currently refurbishing all of our Hotel rooms. We have almost completed the first two stages, and expect to complete the project in the next few months.
Our website has all the details, and of course the best packages.

As we were only staying one night in Wellington we thought we should stay somewhere memorable.
The Museum Hotel was the perfect choice, from the moment we stepped into the lobby which was dark and broody, lit by low hanging chandeliers, wonderful art works hung on the walls, such as NZ artists Nigel Brown, Brett Wong and Bill Hammond. Sculptures were dotted here and there. It all made for a wonderful atmosphere.

Once the check-in procedure was done we were directed to the room, we really should have been listening better or been taken to the lift, as we did not realise that we had to walk through the lobby, down a corridoor to get to the apartment lifts. Not that it was a huge distance but for first time guest they should have shown us the way rather than us stumbling around like lost sheep.

Our room was 611, a one bedroom apartment with city views. Not the best views of a city. But the apartment was large. A full kitchen with table and four chair dining suite.

The lounge area had a Chaise Longue that was perfect for reading the paper or catching up on facebook and tripadvisor.

The bedroom had a huge king-size bed that was wonderful and comfy. Plenty of storage for clothes and bags.

But it was the bathroom with the biggest and deepest hotel bath I have ever had the privilege to soak in. What a treat. The separate shower had a rain shower-head that cascaded from the ceiling. The bathroom had white tiled walls and black tiled floor and very clean.

The one negative was the room safe, after spending some time to find it, in a high cupboard in the kitchen. Could only reach it by climbing on a chair to get items in and out of the safe. Not very convenient at all.

Used the lap pool and hot tub, the hot tub looked to needing some work done on it. There is also a sauna and gym.

The room rate was $279.00 for the night including internet use, bottle of wine and cheese platter.
There was a little confusion when checking out, the price they wanted to charge was $25 more my printed hotel confirmation. They accepted the price on the confirmation and apologised for their mistake.

Overall would recommend this hotel. Being so close to Te Papa Museum and downtown Wellington is a plus but being just that bit different makes it really worth staying here.

We also ate in the hotel restaurant "Hippopotamus" which I have reviewed on tripadvisor

Always a delight to stay at the Museum Arts Hotel and always my first choice for accommodation in the capital. The ambience of the foyer, the restaurant, the hallways & the rooms themselves is a special experience and it is always fabulous to see favoured pieces of art on display as well as new art added to the mix. The staff are very approachable & helpful and the hotel is in a good location with handy front, side & rear entrances ... everything about it enhances the pleasure of our stay in Wellington

The first thing that strikes you about this hotel is the quirky interior decor. The location is awesome. My purpose was to see Annie at the St. James and it was less than a 10 min walk to the show. It is across from Te Papa and the lovely waterfront walk of the city. The room was small but beautifully decorated and finally a room that has decent curtains that block out the city lights. It was quiet and comfortable and had a Nespresso machine. Would definitely stay again.

Great review thanks. Glad you enjoyed the ART. We have more than 100 pieces in the collection and I am adding new works quite regularly. Most recent is a large bull by Michael TUFFERY. A similar work is held in the Te Papa collection.
We have also just hung a new Peter STITCHBURY portrait of Lorde which is stunning.
And you liked the NESPRESSO, that's great.
Next time, try our award winning restaurant, HIPPOPOTAMUS, it's the best French restaurant in New Zealand, staffed totally by French nationals.
And don't forget, the best information and pricing comes direct from our website.
Kind regards
