We stayed at the QT for 2 nights in one of the renovated rooms. In fact we were the first guests to use room 441. Top...everything was there. But : There was some trouble with the ventilation in the bathroom - we mentioned it to the staff. Hopefully they did something about it.Misty mirror is not my kind of thing....

I've stayed here before and it's been great. I was in a newly renovated room which was fitted out very nicely and very comfortable. A couple of elements were disappointing. For a business customer, there was no desk (i'm sure my previous accom there had a desk) and it took a while to work out where the powerpoints were to...

I have stayed at the Museum Hotel previously and have always found it to be a quirky, nice play to stay. The service is good and the décor top notch. I stayed there again on Thursday night(Feb 16) the first time post their upgrade. In one word, Wow. Not very often does new management make a business better, but QT...

Unfortunately this did not meet our expectations. There was work going on in the hotel which was noisy. Rooms were on the smallish side. Staff were not overly friendly or willing to help. We had come from a lovely hotel in Auckland where the staff & room were fantastic. This was a let down.

Dear melmac06, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're disappointed to hear you felt as though we were missing something - it's not something we hear often, with our quirky, eccentric atmosphere from our staff to the minibar. The refurbishments in our public spaces have finished, and we're currently working away on hotel rooms here and there. We...

This place is a must stay!! It is a bit pricier than its counterparts but it's right across from Te Papa and boasts the most amazing art work. The rooms are spacious and you have a later checkout time which makes it worthwhile. The rooms have everything one would need for a weekend in Wellington except for an umbrella, please...

Dear mspreece, Thank you for writing this lovely review! We hope you made the most of the our killer location and the rain shower! We do provide a pair of gorgeous QT umbrellas in each room, however it seems we have missed your room on this occasion - nonetheless, our Reception is always fully stocked. We'll be waiting a heartbeat...

I loved this quirky hotel. The staff are all very professional and courteous and well trained. Aside from the cool art in the hallways, rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The huge jet bath is particularly nice.

We had a suite which was more like an apartment with cooking facilities, washing machine etc......all great when you are travelling. The only downside was that the room was very dark....needs more daylight which could be achieved with lighter net curtains! Otherwise hotel is lovely and the food great.

QTMuseumWellington, Public Relations Manager at QT Museum Wellington, responded to this review

Dear Annie C, Thank you for sharing your 2 night stay with us! Sorry to hear the room was on the dark side - we're fans of the dark, a bit moody, more seductive, nothing that can't be fixed with a flick of a switch! We hope you visit again for some delicious food and funky art! Best, Chris

We stayed in an apartment hotel room at Museum Hotel. It was great because it had a full kitchenette and washer/dryer. Nicely furnished and easy walk to Cuba street and the Te Papa museum. Parking was easy.

We have been lucky enough to stay at this beautifully appointed hotel. From the moment we entered the lobby, we could appreciate that every detail has been considered. QT Museum has extraordinary art everywhere - in every nook and cranny. It is eclectic and crazy, beautiful and astonishing - just loved it. The room we had was super clean, very...
