“Second Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This is the second time that my wife and I have stayed overnight in the Ibis and were pleased to note that it still provided the same level of service. Once again the reception staff were very good and we were able to access our room before the normal check in time.

Our room was on the 4th floor and was well presented with all the normal facilities.

On our day of departure we were able to store our luggage until late in the afternoon which was very good as we were attending a function and thereby removed any need to take it with us.

A nice hotel with very helpful staff which made our stay enjoyable and would stay there again.

I decided to stay at Ibis as the reputation and as I had stayed in Ibis Auckland before. The Auckland one was a good one. However, this time I wanted to try Ibis wellington but 2 things i didnot like during my stay. The booking said Sky TV and WiFi. However, Tv only had one Sky channel and WIfi was not available in the room but you had to pay for it, unless you go downstairs and sit in the lobby for free wireless. What is the point of having WIFI if you have to walk to the lobby and sit there to do your work on the computer. I found that very discomforting and annoying.

Stayed here for two nights late last year at the start of a North Island trip. Hotel was in a great location close to to one of the main streets of the city and to major attractions such as the cable car. Also nice and close to they bay where there was some beautiful water side restaurants, didn't need to catch a taxi to get anywhere everything we wanted to do for our two night stay was within walking distance. However the rooms are quite claustrophobic as some other reviews have stated, our window looked out into a concrete courtyard and windows wouldn't open to let any fresh air in. Food was average as was housekeeping, the comments card from the previous guest was still sitting on the bed when we arrived!
Overall not a bad price for the location and suitable if you're only staying one or two nights.

Room Tip: Ask for something on a higher level.

Stayed there for two nights recently. Clean, quiet and right in central city. Easy walk to nearly all attractions and shopping. Staff were very good and breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Can recommend.
