Very good 8.0
Great location. Spacious, comfortable rooms.
The location is really great! Right across from Te Papa (which is FREE!) and close to the wharf bars and restaurants. The room was very comfortable. A really good size with a nice bathroom. I stayed 4 nights so the kitchenette was really useful, as was the supermarket 2 minutes down the road. Although the room was clean, I did find someone's medication just under the valence. If it wasn't so windy the balcony would have been great. I did ask on check out at 10am if I could please stay in the room for just another 10-15 minutes as my ride was running late but they said no, which really surprised me. There's no common area to sit in so I had to wait sitting on the stairs on the ground floor. The service before I arrived though was really good. Great communication about checking in and also confirming my booking, etc.

Exceptional 10.0
We had a lovely stay at Home Wellington City. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful. We very much appreciated that they kept our bags for us after we checked out so that we could see the city a bit before our evening flight. They also arranged for a large taxi to take us to the airport, which was a big help to us. The room was clean and spacious and a great location -- close to everything! We definitely recommend this hotel when staying in Wellington.
