Service from U Residence was good - after the 5 emails from Expedia! Unfortunately the car parking ticket was not there. The windows either are not sealed or need to be resealed as the wind blew straight through the whole night

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness
Great location near Te Papa. Spacious. Some staffs were friendly and helpful. Every time I was entering or exiting the building, there were smokers by the building entrance. Air condition unit was loud. Some amenities in the room were not very clean (badly stained cup, rusty soap dispenser in the wash basin, etc) and hot water was poor in pressure. After-hour over-the-phone check-in staff was accessible and helpful. Check-out was inconvenient. Expedia website states that the reception opens at 8am but no one was available. When called the number, I was told that the reception opens at 9am and was told that reception was on the ground floor which was not the case. The reception was at the opposite end to the entrance to the hotel part of the hallway and was not sign posted well. Staff was slightly late but was very helpful and friendly.

Decent sized room, bigger than a normal hotel room, lovely balcony and very quiet. The only disappointment was the shower, it took 5 mins for it to warm up (there was a sign advising this) and only dribbled out.
