Quaint and Quirky Retro Metro Hotel in the heart of Auckland. Ideal for all downtown attractions and wharves. Unconventional architecture and room layouts. Basic kitchen and menus. Reasonable bar. Valet parking available.

A great place in downtown Auckland, funky rooms, great house bar, our one gripe, no bars of soap in the bathroom, we hate the bulk soap dispensers, apart from this we would have no hesitation in stopping here again

The hotel is right in the middle of where you need to be in Auckland and a five min walk to the ferries which was great. Extra sound proofing on the Windows made the rooms nice and quiet so was able to get a good nights sleep. They have a great pillow menu as well! It's a quirky place but...

Great fun - we checked in late one evening for a transit layover and were so pleasantly surprised. We were so warmly greeted (wee hours of the night) taken to a lovely two room suite. We LOVED the room and the bed. Super comfy and the room great fun with clever touches. The bathroom really good and the only thing...

Stayed here last week as we went to an event not far away. From the moment we arrived (paid for valet parking which is very much worth it), to the moment we left, it was exceptional. The service was fantastic and the room was a good size, very clean, and the bed! It was amazing! We received a welcome drink...

This is a great hotel with small but beautiful rooms and amazing service. Right from arrival the team spare no effort to make your stay memorable. No request is beyond them and while we were out we even asked for their help to procure some cheeses from the store next door which they gladly executed flawlessly. Highly recommend staying here!

Very comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet room with modern furnishings. The staff are all very polite and helpful. The hotel is on a good street in downtown Auckland within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Nothing to write home here, but it was a solid city hotel, overall. We only stayed for one night. The decor is a little quirky, but that's neither a pro nor a con to me. The one slightly negative experience I had was to do with the included breakfast. The host at breakfast didn't make it clear that we'd be...

Be sure to ask for a room with a window. We were placed in an internal room, where the only light was from the bar next door. The patrons could see right in, as a result of which we had to keep the curtains closed. The room was completely oppressive with no natural light and no fresh air. Limited bathroom...

We spent a couple of nights at the Hotel DeBrett with my family of 4. The hotel is located in a fine centrally located section of downtown Auckland and acted as a walking base for many adventures. The staff was exceptional and friendly. We arrived late from the airport, but our room was ready and the place quiet. The room...
