Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We stayed two nights in this excellent centrally located hotel, which was clean and spacious. We had a great meal in the restaurant and later drinks in the bar which was open late. I would recommend.

Review:   For an Ibis, this is exceptional. Great location, great parking, and great breakfasts. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Let's face it if you're holidaying to stay in your hotel all day you wouldn't come to an Ibis, but this was a great place to base yourself while in Wellington.

Review:   We booked this hotel according to the location and the fact that it advertised parking as part of the deal....so very very annoyed to learn when we checked in that it only accommodates 20 vehicles so we had to park a number of blocks away which means we would have to walk a million miles to get the car ( plus pay to take it in and out of the carpark) or spend money catching a taxi or uber everywhere. Had we have known this we would never have booked it....very misleading...beware

Review:   You get what you pay for. And if you're looking for a decent room at a decent price then Ibis girls are that. The staff at the Wellington Ibis made check in a breeze and we're extremely helpful when I booked a car park in the basement parking area. They were knowledgeable about the surrounding area and suggested some great places to take the kids. It's not a 5 star hotel, and doesnt pretend to be, although it seems some reviewers expected that. The best thing about the Ibis in Wellington is that you're right downtown, walking distance from the beehive, te papa, and lots of other fun things. Would stay again. 😀

Review:   As expected from the IBIS brand, the room is tidy, clean and comfortable. The location is great, close to the waterfront, a 5 minute walk from the shopping area and only a 15 minute walk from the zone where most restaurants are located. There are only two shortcomings that I would flag - the most important one in my opinion is that Wi-Fi access is not complimentary, but requires a $10 payment (shouldn't be hard to offer it for free nowadays...); the second one is that electrical plugs have a safety switch very close to the contacts, which makes it impossible to use any international adapter that is not small in size. I believe these two points are only relevant for international travellers, but wanted to highlight them nonetheless.
