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:   Room is clean, there is a small mini kitchen in the room and provided a lot of cooking materials as well as cutlery and the bed is very comfortable. The location of the place is very good. There are a lot of restaurants near the area and Te Papa Museum which is really nice. The service of the place is good with friendly staff. The hotel is quite small compared to other hotels. But still, it is a nice experience

Review:   QT Museum hotel, formerly known as Museum Hotel has recently renovated. It is upscale very Arty kind of accommodation. Location is right across the National Museum Te-Papa, which is said to be one of the best in southern hemisphere. Service quality is also very good.

Review:   Beautifully appointed room and furnishings. The abundant mirrors on the wall take some getting used to but gives the illusion of space. There is a well stocked mini bar and, a first for me, a Nespresso machine compete with coffee pods. The hotel features an eclectic mix of art, sculpture and music and the golden hippopotamus out the front is amazing. Highly recommended.

Review:   Nice hotel, classic QT style, the reception and common areas are very nice. BUT the parking is a bit of a pain, no on site parking, the concierge drive way is blocked so you have to wait until they come out and let you in, and there's no actual sign that says QT Concierge... I found the lady at check out to provide bare minimum service and just always wanted to send me to talk to someone else rather than her just helping me (and it was not busy). Oh by the way parking is $30 per night... as this info is hard to find online anywhere. The rooms are small, very small actually. And while they are well appointed I wish they had fully renovated the bathrooms also, bathrooms bring the place down a bit. I do kind of wish I stayed some where else to be honest.
