I was upgraded to a two bedroom suite but did not use the second bedroom. The kitchen was well stocked with coffees and teas, even a French press, and the washer and dryer worked very well. The bed was comfortable and the living room spacious. The suite was clean and well appointed. City Life is close to the museums, cable...

We have a very comfortable convenient apartment with kitchen, bathroom/laundry, living/dining area and bedrooms. The central location is close to the cable car, buses, restaurants, banks, city supermarket and shops. Within easy walking distance is the visitor centre and local attractions. Unlike some places we have stayed, we cannot hear the noise of other occupants. Recommended.

We stayed here for one night and had a 1 bedroomed apartment with a lounge, dining area and kitchen. The room was looking a bit tired but it was very clean and had great facilities.

We had a lovely long weekend here. We had a two bedroom apartment which suited our family perfectly. Excellent location only a few doors away from Countdown which was so convenient. A short walk to Te Papa, Beehive etc along with cafes and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. The only negative was the wifi, with teenage kids this is...

Great room and location but I did find the location quite noisy. The night I was there the street cleaner machine was working away for an hour or so followed by the recycling truck which sorted each bottle one by one into the truck. I should have brought some ear plugs! Room was lovely and clean and breakfast was also...

On a 2 day trip to Wellington with a busy schedule ahead we chose to stay in style booking an executive suite at the City Life apartments.

Average for the cost. The rooms were clean and tidy, There was a distinct lack of TV channels and they didn't work that well as remotes were of a poor quality. Not a good booking experience via the phone,
