The West Plaza hotel is an unimpressive sleeping factory with 102 rooms over 5 storeys in the centre of Wellington. Nearby and at the waterfront you find dozens of cafés, bars and restaurants.
The West Plaza has a true seventies architecture and atmosphere, walls between rooms are relatively thin. From our room at the back-side of the building we had a view of the entrance of a parking garage. Every morning the garbage truck gave us a wake-up call. As we were unhappy with our wake-up call we changed for the second day of our stay to a two-room suite. The photos are from the suite.
Wi-Fi Internet is extra and only free at the bar for 30 minutes when you have drink. Quite surprising as the whole city centre has free Wi-Fi internet.
Our room was clean and furnished with a wardrobe, two club-chairs and a flat screen TV set. It had a coffee & tea making facility. The bathroom is appropriate with washbasin, toilet and shower. All was very clean.
The hotel is OK but definitely has inherited its four stars from its best days over two decades ago. Nowadays it is more a 2 to 3 star. The hotel has a bar in the lobby and an uninviting restaurant which we did not visit. The buffet style breakfast is good with ample variety: cereals, fruits, orange juice, pastries, yoghurts, rolls, cold-cuts, different cheeses, eggs made to order, etc.
The hotel is clean and satisfactory maintained. Staffs were helpful and friendly. We would recommend it to all who seek a no-nonsense accommodation in the city centre.
