“Best hotel in Wellington”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

I stay regularly here in Wellington when on business and frequently get upgraded to 1 bedroom or studio suite. Has washing machine and kitchenette. Comfy beds. Always spotlessly clean. Great art. Nothing like a bland chain hotel.

Stayed July 2014, travelled on business

My girlfriend booked us in as a surprise for my birthday and the hotel was wonderful. The art and decor of the room and guest areas was spectacular, but it was the well thought out touches that really impressed me. These included a pillow menu, nespresso machine and an immaculate bathroom.

The hotel gym and swimming pool was extremely new with, and there were a good variety of machine. The sauna was also clean, and there were plenty off clean towels to use. The only downside is tight parking so if you can taxi I would recommend it.

The restaurant, HIppopotamus was fantastic and for silver service very reasonably priced. The service, food and wine were all first rate.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Upgraded to a suite on arrival by an extremely friendly staff team who could not have been more welcoming. Very comfortable bed; an enormous bathroom with separate shower and bath. TV channels seemed only to be old style hotel analogue rather than HD digital. Wifi cost extra which was a bit of a surprise, though not over expensive.

The Museum Art Hotel is one of the best hotels in Wellington. I make an effort to stay at the Museum hotel whenever I travel to Wellington for work (roughly monthly) for a number of reasons;
- spacious rooms with a variety of configurations
- comfortable and stylish rooms
- the deep bathtubs in the bathrooms - big enough for 2
- coffee machines and decent coffee in each room
- friendly and professional staff
- great art
On the last trip to Wellington (a personal trip) the team were kind enough to upgrade me to the 'White Suite' - a top floor large corner suite. Just magnificent. Great views of low rise Wellington. Thanks team.

Room Tip: If you're after a room with a balcony, request a harbour view room.

We had a wonderful weekend away in Wellington and stayed at this hotel, it was excellent. Centrally located and everyone was very professional and friendly. The rooms were very comfortable and the restaurant (Hippopotamus Restaurant) was one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Thanks for a great time!

Room Tip: We went all out and had a harbour view suite but I'm going back to stay again and I don't ca...

Wow, what a great hotel. I loved everything aesthetic about it. Even if some of the art isn't to your taste the whole place is really funky and has a great feel about it and our bedroom and bathroom was amazing. I can't say it was the comfiest bed, but not a bad nights sleep. And the reception staff were pleasant but not at the level you'd expect with the price you pay.

All in all it's was a great stay. A little pricey which I guess you pay for the uniqueness
