Ibis Budget Auckland Airport

Reviewed 12 February 2012

I stayed at Formule 1 a night before an early flight. the rooms are tiny. everyone writes about it in the reviews, but I didn't believe it until I entered the room. it is really a room that's only good to sleep in. the bed occupies all of it.
also - there are no basic essentials like a kettle.
the internet connection is also a problem, as the hotel offers a minimum of 2 hours for 20$, and you have to use all of them at once. the internet connection is really slow, so most of the 2 hours I waited for pages to load. there really should be an option to buy less internet time for less money.
however, the location is great, there are many things to see around and many shops to visit, and the free shuttle service is excellent.
I recommend the hotel for people who really just need to spend the night.

Dear Badhen,

Thank-you for taking the time to post a review about your experience at our hotel. The Formule1 rooms were developed after extensive market research to deliver maximum comfort and functionality for travellers while staying true to its value driven proposition. We remove the frills, such as a kettle in the rooms, to pass the cost benefits on to our guests via a low accommodation rate. I was surprised to see your comment about internet speed and pricing as I often receive positive feedback regarding both these areas of our service. Our 24 hour internet connection costs $20, which is substantially lower than the Auckland market average price.
I was glad to read that you took the opportunity to see the shops and restaurants located next to the hotel and found them beneficial.
Once again, thank-you for your review and I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind Regards
Firoze

I stayed there for one night due to flight connection. Free transport to and from the airport. Rooms are brand new, excellent bed, tv with hdmi port (good for laptop/movie carriers). Next to shops (good side) and markets, including 24h Supermarket. Rooms are a bit tight for luggage, but they can store in the office for a low fee. Great option.

Small room, but quite close to airport. Regular price, like other Formule 1 around the world.
