City Lodge was very central and a quick walk to the main Auckland city area. The room was exactly what we needed for a 1 night stay. It is quite noisy at night time until the early hours of the morning but that is expected as it is very central. The staff were also very helpful. The bed was on...

The rooms were quite small for our group of three and the beds were incredibly uncomfortable--and loud! You could hear everyone moving about because we couldn't sleep. However, the place was clean, had parking available, and was in a good location!

Nice clean rooms, easy access to the city and friendly staff. Will definitely stay there again, they even let us use their facilities long after we checked out by looking after our bags etc. One slight criticism, you could do with updating some of your mattresses, I could feel some of the springs in my back, and that's not great...

My husband and I stayed at the centrally located City Lodge with our two kids in November. It was very clean and modern and the staff were very friendly and helpful. But our room was too small for a family of 4 - only one person could stand up at a time and if we were all in our room,...

I waited too long to book my short stay in Auckland, and the choices left were either absurdly expensive or basic. The City Lodge is a terrific place to stay for a few nights. Rooms are small, a bit spartan, but perfectly clean and comfortable. The property is well-kept and offers basic amenities. Great location in the city center.

Handy central location, friendly & helpful staff, spotlessly clean & well maintained, rooms with everything you need - as a business traveller, why would you stay anywhere else. City Lodge is remarkable value for money!

The lodge was all I could ask for in the heart of Auckland CBD. Very well run business. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper--not because the lodge is noisy, but it is a very busy and dense part of town. Construction noises and sirens are a part of the life there.
