Reviewed 1 February 2016

My recent night in Rydges Hotel in Auckland was marred by a dripping tap in the bathroom and a mouldy/unclean smell in the bathroom. When this was pointed out there was an apology (which doesn't cost anything) but no attempt to do anything about the problems (which may have cost something). I would actively suggest that people AVOID this hotel.

For a chain hotel this place is as good as they get with a friendly atmosphere, quiet comfortable room and great variety for breakfast that including spirulina smoothies. Location is good, just ten minutes walk to the main harbour.

Friendly staff, great service, warm welcome, lovely room overlooking harbour and good food in restaurant. Clean and well maintained. Would be more than happy to stay here again. Room fridge well stocked but,would prefer fresh milk rather than UHT for my tea.

This hotel was convenient to reach by car, the valet parking was useful, the room comfortable, and the property within easy walking distance of the Skytcity eating places, and simple grocery shopping. Our room was comfortable, with an interesting view of the cityscape. Front desk staff was helpful and pleasant.

Very friendly greeting from doormen, efficient check-in and large room and bathroom which was very clean and tidy. No character but fine for what we wanted - within walking distance of the main street in town and the waterfront. Breakfast was good with a large variety although it was the only bad coffee we had in NZ! Overall, the hotel...

Overall we enjoyed the proximity to the harbour, Skycity and being able to walk around Auckland easily. We felt that the bar area lacked style and warmth. The hotel room was spacious and we had a nice view of the harbour (top floor). The bed was comfortable but the pillows were not that good. The AC worked quite well. The...

Centrally located near everything. Relatively new hotel with well above average rooms - all of which are nicely appointed with new furnishings. Breakfast buffet is outstanding - smoked salmon & eggs Benedict (best breakfast in 3 weeks). Staff are friendly and helpful - always a plus.

Was here for 3 nights, found the the rooms, location and staff all to be great but the only view I had out the window was of the cramped apartments directly across from the hotel, didn't really bother me but glad I got this place at a discounted rate or I would have been a bit annoyed.
