Hotels in Wellington

Named the world's most liveable city for the last two years running, Wellington is also a great place to visit. Contained by the Remutaka Range and the Cook Strait, New Zealand's capital is small by global standards and easy to get around, but that doesn't mean it lacks attractions. There's also a strong café culture and fine dining scene, with more bars, cafes and restaurants per capita than New York.

Wellington hotels appeal to all price ranges, from budget hostels and B&Bs to luxury hotels. Compare room rates on Skyscanner to find the cheapest Wellington hotel that satisfies your needs.

Where to stay in Wellington

Wellington CBD

Is it your first time visiting the NZ capital, or do you just want to be close to the sights? A hotel in Wellington CBD will put you close to the shopping and dining areas such as Central Willis Street and the Waterfront, as well as popular attractions like the Botanical Gardens, Town Hall and other government buildings. Many hotels are found along Victoria and Willis Streets, with cheap hotels and hostels along Wakefield Street and higher-end options on Cambridge Terrace.

Te Aro

To see the lively side of Wellington, Te Aro is home to the city's most popular bars and clubs, as well as restaurants that open through the night. Courtenay Place is the centre of Wellington's nightlife, while in the daytime you can visit the famous Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand.

If you want to stay by the beach, Oriental Bay is right next to Wellington Harbour on the slope of Mount Victoria, just over 1.5km from Wellington CBD.

Windy.... windy... and guess what windy. That is what makes it so great. Once you laugh at yourself you can enjoy all that this town can offer.


Wellington has been my favourite city in New Zealand by far. I thought of it like a mini Melbourne, with a cool, eclectic vibe that doesn't try to hard. It has all the hallmarks of a great city - active and vibrant walkways

Funky, eclectic, and just plain cool. Wellington has a Bohemian vibe that jives with it's beachside ambience, making it seem like the offspring of San Francisco and San Diego. Definitely worthy of the Coolest Little Capital in the World title.
