The location is fine with the Hotel attached to a pub and other eateries. I travel extensively and a lot in Asia having to, out of necessity, sometimes take accommodation that is below my expectations. The Poenamo is in a modern city and in a decent location, is old (late 60's) and is well past it's sell by date and... More

Our sister was admitted to this hospital and when we travelled to Auckland to visit the Poenamo suited our needs perfectly. Microwave and cooktops for economical eating. Modern, clean and tidy with car parking right outside the door. 200 metres to the motorway (State Highway 1) for easy access to the rest of Auckland. That is if you can avoid... More

My partner and I stayed at the Poenamo for two nights over the Christmas break, in a downstairs kitchen studio room, which contained a king sized bed and a single bed. On first entering the room we felt it was slightly more dated than expected (the kitchen entrance) but the bedroom was fine. The bed was pretty comfortable (great after... More

Despite its 'dated' appearance and after finding the room door opened out wards, the room it's self was clean and well equipped, reception staff were friendly and helpful. Free wifi and restaurants close by with charge back to hotel...bathroom was clean but window was not secure, shower was built for tall people and not adjustable while hooked into its bracket....

I was booked in through work on a Wed and Thurs night so am not sure how much it cost. Reception was unattended when I first arrived at around 8pm, but the attendant was not too far off. I got a brief explanation as to where my room was, but still found it quite difficult to find with no lift... More

We chose this hotel as we were on the northern side of Auckland visiting an old friend of my husband. Many accom in this area of the city was very expensive. It was easy to locate with simple directions from his friends. It was also an easy trip into the city the next day. We were at the back of... More

Initially we were directed to room 27, back of house, poky, backing on to a busy kitchen and a pump…….. no way were we staying in that room!!! Back to reception and no problem to change rooms. Spent the next 2 nights in room 22 and 4 nights in the same room a week later. Clean tidy, TV stations available... More

Recently stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and found the location and amenities excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful and the pool was a great relief for cooling and recovery. There is an array of food outlets within the complex and I tried all of them and could not fault. The free Internet was also an added bonus.

Pool side studio rooms fantastic - great room, excellent kitchen area, nice bathroom..just a shame no where to put toilet bag - other than that we love staying there. Have stayed many times. Double rooms no where near as nice, small, old, poorly located.
