Great location. Amazing layout with all the loungey break out areas plus huge rooftop deck. Articial intelligence Hotel in some ways as the App controls access and functions within room. Carl was top notch. Deserving of praise as he lights up a room. Nightly rate was very good value. Definitely back again

We stayed at Mi-Pad just after New Year. The best thing about the Hotel was the staff. Carl and his team were just amazing, probably the best hosts we have had anywhere in NZ or abroad. The staff were always helpful, remembered our names and made us feel at home. The hotel is right in the heart of the city. There is a rooftop terrace with great views over the lake and a really well designed communal area, which can be used for functions. We are planing our next tramping trip down south and our first and last stop will be at Mi Pad. See you soon Carl!

My partner and I were really happy with this place. Feels like a high tech and stylish stay . Everything is simple to use and with just a touch of a button you can set the lighting and change colours! They have complimentary hot drinks available on every floor. Clean facilities and great views from their rooftop hangout. 100% coming back to stay here next time!

Much cheaper than some of the other hotels around so we didn't expect much from the hotel. When you arrive, they want you to download an app in order to access your room, which was a little inconvenient but I understood why. After downloading the app, they gave you a key anyway haha. The room itself is quite small but has some really cool lighting control options, but it does seem like style over substance. The toilet doesn't give you too much privacy in your room and the shower is great if you don't mind checking out your partner whilst she's showering as there is little privacy there also! Overall, you get what you pay for and our stay was nice.

Dear Ukwonderboy Thank you for your review regarding your stay and constructive feedback. In regards to the application we encourage all our guests to download and check into it. This is due to some of the room functionality’s being linked to the application such as the heated towel rail. It is also our main source of contact to reception through the application as we do not have phones in the room. We cut keys in addition to the application as it is better to have both in the event someone leaves their phone in the room or visa-versa. We understand our rooms are compact and this was a concept to clear away “some of the clutter” and offer the facilities you need to stay in the beautiful destination of Queenstown. With this in mind we ensure we use good quality products such as the GHD hairdryer and straighteners in every room and the spa quality La Clinca products. We appreciate your feedback in regards to the shower and toilet and will certainly take this under advisement as we continue to improve as an accommodation provider. Thank you again for your feedback. We hope to see you again in the future. Kind Regards Toby Welford Operations Manager

Mi-Pad hotel is a nice mid-range hotel centrally located in Queenstown. I stayed here before and after hiking the Routeburn and Milford Tracks. The hotel is a block from the department of conservation and the downtown core. The staff was friendly and stored my luggage while I was hiking. (The girl who checked me in grew up outside Seattle). The room was slightly on the small side if you need to prepare for a backpacking trip, but otherwise was perfectly spacious. I found the room comfortable and there was coffee machine on every floor. I did not use the iPhone App, as I did not have a chance to download it. Upstairs had a nice deck with view over Queenstown. I had a rental car on my second stay and had no problem parking, as I would spend the day out exploring the countryside. On my prior trip to New Zealand, I had stayed at nicer hotel about a mile outside Queenstown. It was a pain staying there, because I usually walked to town, as parking in Queenstown can be a pain and for me, it was not worth hassle of driving a mile into town. I would thus, recommend staying at Mi-Pad for its location and price, despite being less spacious.
