    Windy Wellington
    Overall, this was OK. Great location, just off Cuba Street, so plenty of restaurants, cafes and takeaways to choose from. Apartment was tidy, and pleasant enough. Good wardrobe storage. Kitchenette with oven, microwave, toaster, kettle and two hot plates, as well as plates, glasses etc. Pay laundry with washers and dryers, which was OK. Not overly large for 2 bedrooms, fine as it was just the 2 of us staying, but if all 4 had been there would have been cramped (table had 4 chairs, but in the corner so only 3 usable, and 2 seater couch only. BUT it was noisy and there was no getting away from it. Most nights the wind whistled loudly against the windows, gave me a bit of a headache and kept waking me when it picked up. My daughter also found the street/bar noise loud (I found the wind drowned it out all but one night). So probably wouldn’t go back, as I would like a better night’s sleep, despite the very convenient location.

    Room itself was nice and clean with all you need for a pleasant stay ,but as soon as the sun goes down the nightmare begins ! There is a constant noise from people walking in the corridors, slamming doors and what sounded to me like music blasting through TV's and this went on at random times through the night and every night of my stay. If I had known this place was student accommodation as well as serviced apartments I would have thought twice before booking. Pity because this is a great location in the heart of Wellington.

    Poor 2.0
    Rip off
    This place is to be avoided. This is student accommodation turned non serviced apartment. It was dirty, smelly, run down and a total rip off. The staff were pleasant doing their best against the odds. This kind of accommodation gives Wellington a bad rap. This is the capital city for goodness sake, not some third world dive.You can do way better For the same price.

    Poor 2.0
    Terrible beds and no parking
    Our room was ok with a decent view however the bed was horrible - I think every spring in it was knackered - felt like sleeping on a bumpy piece of timber. A lot of noise rises from the street.

    Average Hotel
    Mix up over parking. Would never have stayed if I knew there was no parking. Extremely noisy at night, Had a front room over looking the street (6 floors up) and even the guy skate boarding every night in the small hours sounded as if he was just out the window. Double glazing would help this Hotel.
