Stayed here for 2 nights. There was the basics needed for breakfast and coffee though was odd to have the fridge in the hallway just before the bathroom. The beds were comfy and was spacious for 2 people

We were here for 1 week due to hospital visits. We found City towers to be fantastic place to stay. Was very very clean close to restaurants and supermarket and very close to the hospital. Thank you Natalie and Gerard for a lovely stay

Good location (buses and trains are in very easy walking distances). Good setup (for long term stays, this was much better than a dorm room) Good people (only accolades to the managers - they are heroes to us) Some people rent for several days while visiting folks at the nearby hospital or receiving treatment. We rented for 5 months while...

I have stayed at City Towers several times and would highly recommend it. Gerard and Natalie, you are great - friendly and helpful. The units are clean, large, plenty of kitchen space and facilities, dining table, couch, comfy bed, extra blankets, lovely courtyard with table and chairs. I've stayed in posh places that don't come close to being as comfortable...

Very happy with this accommodation. Photos show room as it is and other reviews are correct in that they indicate that City Towers is an older apartment building that has some cosmetic scrapes and marks but is solid and large. The super king bed was super comfy and was so great to come home to. Has a kitchen with gas...

We stayed here for 10 days after arriving in NZ. My husband is working at Starship Hospital and this was the ideal location, being a 5-10 minute walk. The harbour front is a longer walk (prob 25 mins) but buses go every 10mins from the bottom of the road from the hotel at a cheap $2. We are in NZ...

I wanted somewhere with parking, close to places to eat, and with easy access to the city centre; this ticked all the boxes. Staff were really friendly and very helpful. The office / reception is only open normal office hours so make sure you let them know if you are planning to arrive outside these. My room was a large...

Needed to be near to Epsom/Newmarket so ventured out of CBD and stayed a few nights at City Towers. The Good: Very helpful and pleasant manager (Natalie) who welcomed us despite our arrival on a public holiday. Gave us a 2nd floor corner apartment which was quiet and airy. Location just a five minute walk to Newmarket shops and cinema....

This was booked as our first place to stay in NZ. Firstly the Staff we great! Everyone I spoke to were friendly and helpful. The room was not what we thought we had paid for.
