Arrived here in the afternoon, the hotel reception was closed so I had to get room keys from the bar on the ground floor, which took some time. The room is basic and ideally the whole place needs complete refurbishment. As it stands it is good value for money for a hotel in the centre of the city. No breakfast... More

Absolutely basic, Hotel seems to have been sitting in a state of stagnation and decay without any concern for improving conditions. No lift so enjoy walking up 4 floors worth of stairs to get to your room with all your luggage. Dont stay unless you have no where else to go.

Will start with the positives... 1) Friendly staff...2) Good location...3) Great shower... 4) Clean bedding. Negatives... 1) Very hot, stuffy room with no air conditioning or fan...2) One small window that HAD to be open but did nothing except let street noise in...3) Tv could not function without a remote control...

Stayed 1 night in the Albion. Very cheap so don't expect luxury. But cheap isn't always so bad..The Albion is ideally located for the Sky Tower & Not to far from bars & cafe. 10 min walk to The Viaduct. Staff are friendly & helpful. Excellent bar and rooms are basic but clean. Stayed at the Kiwi Hotel in Auckland... More

Super nice folks, checked in early and very helpful on check out. Free wi-fi. Room was small, but cool and clean. Shower had plenty of hot water. Location is good - across street from Sky City. Highly recommend taking the inter-city bus from the airport -- saves loads of cash from a taxi.

Ok let's start with the positives. They allowed me to check in and check out early. That's it. The room is hot (no a/c), really smelly and very small. It's also outdated with a filthy bathroom with mildew in the shower. The walls are paper thin. I could hear my neighbour's TV word for word even at 4 am! Consistent... More

We really liked the old charm and genuine feeling of The Albion. It is nothing for you who needs a more fancy place to stay but we loved it. Really great location also. The staff was friendly and fun and the bar and restaurant was good. Would love to stay there again, next time I visit Auckland. Extra plus to... More

Stayed here for 1 night on New Year's Eve. It was a a very basic room but at NZ$120 for 3 pax, no complaints. Check-in was easy, efficient and each guest was given a wifi code which is included in the room price. Our room had a view of the Auckland tower so we managed to catch the fireworks from... More

Out of all of the countries in the world I have visited (including third world countries) this is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. There is no way it would pass a health inspection. The bathroom was covered in mold spots and the window glass was broken so it let in the freezing night air. The... More
