I've stayed here once before and it is on the rough edge of Auckland with many homeless people nearby due to Auckland City Mission being a few meters away. Wifi very good Breakfast very basic (see photo) Bed okay - but not flash.

The apartment was of adequate size and was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly. The accommodation was within walking distance to the CBD and a... More

My partner kept falling though the gap between two beds. Not great for a romantic getaway. The clock radio did not work. the washing machine was very... More

We checked in early morning and the staff was really helpful. They sorted a room before checkin time for us. Guided us through the city map and things to do in and around Auckland. Clean and comfortable rooms in the heart of the city. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ it's a star property

Good location close to sky tower. Accommodation was clean and tidy. The Free breakfast wasn't amazing, and ended up buying from a supermarket. Same option both mornings bruised banana and dry muffins.

Bad! A friend of mine recommended the Oaks chain as a good one in Australia and New Zealand and I'm deeply disappointed. Room is dated, tired and DIRTY as you can see in the pictures. AC is noisy as well as the toilet which the water don't stop rolling. Internet and breakfast is a joke, because I never had it... More

  • Our view of the city skylights from our bed.
  • This was our view of the Auckland City night lights which is different to what is described.
