The city of Wellington really needed a hotel like this. Long has it played second fiddle to Auckland, and yet many would argue that Wellington, "Windy Wellington" is prettier and more sophisticated, than it's Northern nemesis. No wonder then, that it was recently voted "the coolest little capital in the world" by Lonely Planet.

From a decorative point of view Ohtel is a significant and welcome departure from the all white norm of contemporary boutique hotels. Designer and proprietor Alan Blundell has filled the interior spaces with his distinct collection of mid - century modern pieces that include chairs, tables ceramics and clocks. The hotel definitely benefits from the fruits of his personal, two year long curating adventure.

The best part of the rooms are the bathrooms. They are the size of hotel rooms in their own right and with their expanses of glass and tubs built for two, they bring a completely modern and sophisticated sense of luxury to this city - namely, the luxury of space.

Ohtel doesn't have a restaurant, or a bar and, to be truthful, it's better for it. The area in and around nearby Cuba St is literally teeming with choices. Much more fun to go out and explore the neighbourhood.

Bang in the heart of Wellington's most happening area, Ohtel is literally, around the corner from Cuba Street, Wellington's best known area. Even better still, Te Papa, New Zealand's leading and most famous museum is across the street. You don't have to be a "culture vulture" to appreciate its awe inspiring collection of Maori artefacts.
