“Great location, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2011

This is a good hotel in a very central location. The rooms are spacious and quiet, especially for a city centre hotel, but slightly lacking in some refinements. It doesn't match other boutique hotels that we stayed at in NZ, but then the price is reasonable. We were lucky enough to get one of the 3 free parking slots otherwise you have to pay a daily rate.

We arrived at 5.30pm and had a bit of an ordeal finding a park near the hotel on a wet evening in heavy traffic. That was the only negative though - and we were then given a free park across the road when we checked in.

Fantastic location, we walked across to Cuba Street (between showers) and grabbed a meal, also very close to the New World supermarket at Chaffers Bay.

The room was large and comfortable, had everything we would expect and was surprsingly quiet. Also had a great selection of TV channels!

Would recommend (esp for longer stays)

It has all been said before in previous reviews but I'll list the features that mattered the most to us when we stayed for 4 nights. The ensuite laundry, the spacious and bright room, the excellent wifi and TV, the contemporary design, great bed and storage, good kitchen, generous balcony, and most of all, the location with a lovely view of Te Papa Museum. We highly recommend you book a queen size room as they face the museum.

Te Papa was wonderful. We went twice and could easily have spent more time. We also recommend the cafe there. Wellington is very walkable and At Home is in the middle of it all with many restaurants nearby. As well, the waterfront walk is just one steet away.One highlight of our visit was the very interesting tour of the New Zealand parliament buildings. One disappointment was the cable car and the Botanical Gardens.

The only negative was that it was confusing trying figure out how to get up to the hotel level in the office building, especially after a long drive. We suggested some changes to their note at the entrance and hope that it will become clearer. However, you only have to figure it out once and after that you appreciate the security of the building.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Te Papa

We stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. It overlooked the back of Te Papa.
Every conceivable amenity/fitting was in this apartment. From a well designed kitchen and bathroom (with laundry facilities) to a spacious bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space. Nice balcony area. Very comfortable bed with quality bedding. Excellent security for entering the building especially after hours. Wifi included in room rate. Close to restaurants, supermarket, shops and harbourside.
Very clean and still looks like new despite being 4 years old.
Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Wellington now we've found At Home.

When booking "At Home" I thought it would be a good place to say as Leanne was so helpful. I was proved right. At Home although a little hard to find was great. The room was spacious, had a balcony, but sadly no view. However the pluses were that the bed was supremely comfortable, we had a small kitchen and even a washing machine/dryer which are so useful when travelling. Wi-fi was also available. We were right near the wonderful Te Papa Museum and the waterfront and nothing was too far away. There is a supermarket about ten minutes walk away and also a good little bistro "Two Souls". Leanne was extremely helpful, the place was spotless and we would definately recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask Leanne!

We had a great 4 nights staying here - the room was much bigger than expected and was decorated in a modern and contemporary style. It was light and airy and surprisingly quiet given that Wakefield Street is pretty busy. Having the kitchen and laundry facilities within the room meant we had more flexibility than you would have in a standard hotel and the bathroom was clean and generously sized. The huge bed was exceptionally comfortable and the black-out curtains led to a good nights sleep every night, even with jetlag!
The owners were friendly and helpful, even lending us a plug adaptor as we'd inadvertently forgotten ours and the free wifi was much appreciated - all in all we had very enjoyable stay and will be recommending At Home Wellington to our friends and look forward to staying there again in the future.

At Home Wellington could not be located in a better spot. You are literally within walking distance of the Te Papa museum, beautiful waterfront, and all of the fancy restaurants.

Our room was very modern, clean, and cozy. The washer and dryer was very handy for our two night stay as it was the midpoint of our trip. We got to freshen up our clothes for the second half of the trip.

Leann greeted us and was very helpful in getting set up in the city. She was gave us a wonderful box of lovely chocolates. Given the cost of the other places we stayed in New Zealand and the location, service, and the fact that we were in a major city, this was an excellent value.
