Newtown Neighbourhood and Wellington
Wellington is a charming city that welcomes travellers from all around the world who can never quite forget the warm atmosphere and dynamic culture they experienced.

Close neighbours include, Ronald McDonald House, Southern Cross Hospital, Massey University, Wakefield Hospital, and Wakefield Heart Centre.
Immerse yourself in the impactful culture this city has to imprint on its visitors by hopping in a 5-minute drive to the CBD to explore Wellingtons Waterfront, visit Queen’s wharf, Te Papa, Chaffers Marina, and Oriental Bay. Get some retail therapy in at the quirky stores while you’re at it! A few other favourites from this cool little capital include Wellington Zoo, Government House and The Basin Reserve.
Whether you are in town to visit friends and family, attending a graduation, enjoying an event at Sky Stadium or TSB Arena, or here for business – Sojourn Apartment Hotel is the short stay pleasure ideal for both leisure and business travellers.
Just 35 metres to the bus stop outside the neighbouring Ronald McDonald House makes getting around the city a breeze.
