Mi-pad is a six-storey, 57 bedroom, next generation hotel located on Henry Street, Queenstown.
Developed by MIPAD Holdings Limited, the hotel is a joint venture between local property developer Lewis Gdanitz and hotel investment company TJK NZ Limited.
“Mi-pad is the only hotel of its kind in New Zealand,” says TJK NZ Ltd CEO Stephen Borcoskie.
“Located within easy walking distance of tourism activities, restaurants and nightlife, the hotel uses modern technology solutions to solve some of the common challenges guests face at traditional hotels.”
Upon arrival – or prior to check-in – guests are invited to download the hotel’s personal app ‘mia’. Using their smartphone, mia enables guests to check-in, check-out, adjust room temperature and lighting, order room service and chat with reception and other guests via a private chatroom.
“The app also acts as a room key and digital concierge – delivering relevant tourism information to guests when they want it,” Stephen says.
