History, Artwork and Design

The Ohtel brand has been synonymous with Wellington and Oriental Bay since it’s opening back in the late 2000’s.  Built on a quirky and not taking itself too seriously concept, the intention has been to deliver exceptional customer service in a relaxed setting, set amongst interesting artwork and mid-century furnishings.

It was this same vibe that Village Accommodation thought would fit perfectly into the Auckland scene for both the corporate and leisure market, offering something different, something personal.  It took years to find the right site and location to suit what we know Ohtel could offer, and after many years of hard work and building interrupted by COVID lockdowns, Ohtel Auckland opened its doors in May 2021.

Every piece at Ohtel Auckland has been collected personally by our Managing Director Adam Cunningham.  Adam is a well-known collector of art pieces and during the years leading up to opening, he collected an outstanding selection to create the unique environment that you will only find at Ohtel Auckland.

Every room has personal detail, with exclusive décor and vibrant colours to make the overall experience be above the average hotel stay.

Most of our furniture has also been designed by Adam, inspired by mid-century pieces, to give the space more personality and the homely feel needed when travelling, without losing the 5-star service, provided by our attentive hosts.

All the book collections that can be found in our communal areas and guest rooms, was also put together throughout the years, and carefully selected for an interesting browse.

Located a stone’s throw away from the Viaduct Harbour, Ohtel Auckland with its green space and leisure facilities has the peace that you look for when enjoying some time away or working, without losing the city action – close to the most famous restaurants and bars in Auckland City.

With a quirky romantic vibe, Ohtel is destined for those looking for more than a hotel room. Ohtel will intrigue you with all it shapes and forms, where every detail has a history and was specifically chosen to make your stay unique. It’s the Ohtel Way.
