Hi, welcome to ohtel


Located in the Capital city's exclusive seaside neighbourhood of Oriental Bay is an award winning 10-room, boutique Hotel. 4.5 star, self-rated Ohtel provides true international class Urban Chic.
Ohtel is adjacent to Wellington's principal entertainment precinct, and en route to the city from the international airport. Major attractions such as Te Papa, Oriental Bay beach, theatres, restaurants & clubs, are a stone's throw away. Beyond, the city hub creates a picturesque night-time back-drop.
Whether hosting international visitors, that 'must impress' corporate guest, or seeking a weekend escape without the hassle of travelling to the regions many luxury rural accommodation options, Ohtel offers an inspirational environment for you to enjoy. Bathrooms are the focal point of each room. Large expanses of glass reveal luxurious two-person baths, oversized showers, and the finest natural toiletries. Regular media options are enhanced by digital audio and pod-casts in each room, all via LCD flat screens, free Wi-Fi and 50+ Sky channels - Tivoli speakers complete the sensory experience.
While modern urban boutique hotels aren't unique, the 'Mid-Century' furnishings that adorn the interior spaces of this hotel certainly are. From chairs to ceramics, tables to clocks – the owner and designer, Alan Blundell has filled the rooms and lobby with treasures he collected over a 3 year period.

Take a Closer look

Take a walk around Ohtel.
Boutique hotels are rising in popularity in cities all over the world, but in New Zealand, “anti-chain” establishments have traditionally been seen more as a novelty than a serious option for an overnight stay. Inspired by chic designer hotels he discovered on a week-long vacation in Manhattan in 2000, Alan Blundell — a Kiwi, veteran architect and resident of Wellington — set out to change that perception.

Your front of house staff, the rooms and the overall complete package that Ohtel offers is world class. I look forward to returning as well as recommending Ohtel to my local and international friends and business partners as this is the place to stay when in Wellington.

Nightlife-wise, Alan of Ohtel is well hooked in. I particularly enjoyed our trip to Motel, an excellent bar with young, friendly staff in military regalia. Ohtel is a real find and first of its kind in little old New Zealand—well worth a detour south of the equator!
