Great location-across from Te Papa, near theaters and restaurants. . Amazing lobby with beautiful and eccentric pieces of art. World class restaurant and bar- Hippopotamus. Nice staff. NIce view of harbor- we paid extra for this. So why only three stars? Service was subpar and they indulged themselves in the decor leaving a relatively uncomfortable experience. For example, we noticed...

We didn't stay here. It is a little expensive when on a budget. What you can do though is go to the front bar, order a glass of the local Sauv.Blanc(not south Island) and wander about looking at the amazing art. It is quite spectacular and quirky in many ways. Located just a short walk across the road from Te...

Great restaurant and loved the Nespresso machine in the room and the bathbomb supplied. The bath tub is nice and big. The bar is awesome - shame te papa is in the way and obscures the view of the harbour. Some of the hotel looks like a bordello.

My partner and I booked an Executive King Room in the Apartment side of QT Museum Hotel for our Engagement party for a bit of a treat. The refurbishments are very well done. I have stayed here before the redesign and can say it has massively improved. It is perfect if you are looking for a romantic stay in the...

What an amazing hotel! Everywhere there is art and something to look at! Fantastic checkin and concierge staff. Lovely room and very funky decor. The balcony was very large and had a lovely view. Right across from Te Papa and only 2 x blocks to Courtney Place.

Located near the Te Papa Museum and many restaurants, QT was a clean, quiet, comfortable stay with an artsy and hip energy. Friendly staff and good wifi. The hotel restaurant seemed pricey, so we skipped eating there. With lots of great eateries nearby, we didn't mind. Only negative was the boring alleyway view from our room, but we didn't mind.
