Overall is really good value of money for the location right in central city. I got a double room with shower, everything is all good apart from the curtain was a bit damaged which outside could peek into the room. Other issues already inform the staff so hopefully for future they will have more improvements. Definitely would stay again next time there for the good price.

A horrific experience! Do not stay here!
Our families experience at the Aura Hotel was a total nightmare! I removed our family from the hotel after 1 night and are still fighting for a refund. Our first day in Wellington was ruined due to the fact we could only pick up the key between 2 and 3 pm. When we arrived at 2 pm we had to.wait 30 minutes for the receptionist to arrive. During this time one resident was yelling and screaming about a person breaking into her room and was abusive to my two teenage girls. When we checked into room it was trashed and a total mess, it hadnt been cleaned which delayed our checkin by another 2 hours. We had to eat out we could not use kitchen as we had hoped to save on cost. Later in night someone had lost key as was banging on door for 2 hours I had to move a large wardrobe over our door to make the kids feel safe. The receptionist said we would be safe and they had security doors - the residents use special buckets full of concrete to hold these doors open so it was not safe and secure as promised, Tents and guests were smoking and it stunk out our room and affected my sons asthma. We were left without sleep, with 3 very upset and scared kids, ripped off as the hotel would not refund our money as we had to pay for further accommodation as we did not feel safe to stay in the hotel. I feel this Hotel is not fit for the general public and has likely been rented out by WINZ - judgemental but true. As i write this they have had 3 weeks to rectify this matter not a word.
