Hotel Overview


A few minutes from downtown, near Wellington Harbour.

Rooms at Museum Art Hotel

Pick from a selection of plush rooms, luxury suites, and apartment guestrooms, all beautifully appointed with comfy contemporary furnishings and mod-cons. Sleek and stylish, many rooms come with balconies overlooking Wellington’s harbour or downtown, but if you splash out on the Wellington Suite you’ll get the best views over both.

Food and facilities

The highly-acclaimed Hippopotamus Restaurant headed by Chef Laurent Loudeac, a French-themed haven of gourmet dining and fine wine, is Museum Art Hotel’s piece de resistance. Browse the list of superbly blended cocktails for your choice of after-dinner sundowner, or enjoy an evening soak at the luxury lap and spa pool.

Activities at Museum Art Hotel

Once you’ve finished gaping at all the artwork lining this hotel’s corridors and communal areas, take a tour of Te Papa, the National Museum of New Zealand just round the corner; scale nearby Mt. Victoria for pretty harbour views; ride the iconic Cable Car to Carter Observatory; or taste your way around the city sampling coffee houses and gourmet eateries – some of our favourites are dotted along the waterfront on the way to Oriental Bay.
