Centrally situated, easy to be reached, midth of the city and close to the harbour - short way to public traffic - everything you need for a comfortable stay - large modern TV - kitchen with fridge and boiler - friendly and helpful staff - internet access - large buffet breakfast - fair rate - only disadvantage: on weekends rooms towards Queens Street can get noisy read hotel review

The location was perfect for us and it was very convenient for us to go to shops and restaurants nearby as they were only a short walk away. We got 30 minutes free internet as a bonus we didn't expect it. Breakfast was good, staff was really helpful and friendly. read hotel review

Very centrally located town hotel right on the sky tower. Is located directly on the road and through the old and a bit leaky window it is quite loud. The hotel is a bit shabby and the rooms they show it. There is a kitchenette but also mold in the bathroom. read hotel review

Centrally located and good after the trip there from Europa. We had a studio, which was not quite the standards, since we the plates of the dinner and breakfast on the floor had to, since no table was available. Otherwise but after a long flight and to collect the first impressions absolutely okay. read hotel review

Central hotel, sufficient for one night archived
  • Recommended hotel

After my arrival in Auckland I before the beginning my new Zealand tour for one night stayed in this hotel. Was accommodated in one spacious Studio with kitchenette and great views of the tower on the ninth floor. The hotel itself is already getting a bit old. The service was however surprisingly modern, only the grey curtains (originally white) could have been longer time be washed must. The windows are good isolation, you heard hardly anything from the traffic movement of main street. The bed was comfortable. The majority of of the guests dates from the Asian area. Unbeatable is ... the location of the hotel, within walking distance of some attractions are like the skytower or the queenstreet to reach, other Objectives can be easily with the public transport links will started. In Erdgeschossbereich of the hotel is a supermarket, also nearby there are various options for shopping and restaurants. The staff at reception is very helpful and open for questions. A older couple over the room and facilities complained, I had at least the impression, that you attempted, a solution to find. Altogether considered the hotel is surely no highlight, for one night in Auckland but more than adequate. read hotel review

    We were upgraded to a suite. So we had a living room with kitchenette, a bedroom and a bathroom. From the size it was quite good, but a bit old. It wasn't really a room in which you want to spend the whole day. So it was ok to sleep in for a night. A drawback was that there was no safe!

The hotel was a little older and looks worn. But the excellent location makes up for the. All attractions are within walking distance. The rooms are quite large with kitchenette and large bathroom but noisy. We had a room on the 12th floor, which is important because of the otherwise not to ertragenden noise, but still noisy. Bad were the mattresses that are not worn out but way too soft. The breakfast is poor in a room with atmosphere of a cafeteria. Tip for the transfer to and from the airport a cheap taxi, 35 Neuseelanddollars, about 18 euro did ... as much as a standard taxi. Also at the harbor cruise on a budget. There are 3 suppliers for the same performance at $18 difference. read hotel review

    The rooms are ok. Iron and ironing board are available, as well as a television. The kitchenette is the needed crockery and cutlery, also a can opener, a microwave, a fridge. The dishes were not really clean. The curtains are dirty. The doors are not completely, as they are too short. There's always a slot of some 3-4 cm under door. And not just to the bathroom, but also to the hallway. In addition to this, the bathroom had been cleaned properly.

    The hotel is right in the town. The Sky Tower is almost around the corner. Everything is within walking distance. Located diagonally across a bungee-station. The transfer to/from the airport is via the city-airport-bus. This isn't far from the hotel. The location is a major drawback the noise. Every night makes street noise and the cries from the bungee jumping until about 2 :00AM.
