Breakfast included in the price so I thought great. Left in the fridge was a sandwich and banana which was too green to eat. Small yoghurt was OK. This was disappointing. Have never been left a sandwich before. A cereal would of been a better choice . Eating areas was hard to find. Denny's near the Sky Tower offered a...

We were unable to find anywhere to stay at near the airport after calling over 15 hotels in the area and an app found us this hotel downtown with an available room! Overall beautiful room with two separate sleeping areas, a nice living room area, and a large bathroom! Wish we would have found this sooner!

We stayed here while visiting Auckland for a concert. Great location in the city, shortish walk to Queen Street and the viaduct. Clean rooms, and friendly staff. Room service closed very early - 9pm which wasn't ideal but have no complaints overall.

Booked 2 nights in a standard double room. The room was a good size with great shower which was perfect after a long flight. Close walk to the city centre - good location if going on the Hop On Hop Off bus or visiting Sky City.

The hotel was easy to find but the carpark was not so easy. We double parked on the busy street while my husband ran in to find where the carpark was and the number to press on the security gate. The carpark was secure and out of the weather, but very tight if you own a large vehicle. They charged...

Room was a good size and think they gave me a free upgrade. Staff were knowledgeable about their city and very helpful. Not a great view (just other apartment block) but that didn't matter to me. The location was relatively close to the Skybus terminal (airport shuttle) and to the main Queens Street. .

The hotel is a standard hotel. Room size is good. The primary problem I had with the hotel was the shower. On the bottom of the shower was a peice of rusted metal stuck out the side. It cut the top of my foot requiring 3 stitches and a tetanus shot. The manager was very unprofessional and no help. Would...

Stayed here late 2015 and remember being very impressed with the room and service for the price that we paid for. Only stayed here as every other place was booked out but definitely don't regret it and would consider this place as one of my first options next time i decide to stay in Auckland.
