We stayed in the suite with two bedrooms on the 10th floor. The kitchen and living room were downstairs while two rooms and bathroom were upstairs. This unit is not suitable for disable/elderly. Also we find it very inconvenient having only one bathroom/toilet. No aircon, only fans provided. The unit cleanliness was not good enough. We found stains on the... More

Good location in centre of Auckland City. Nice clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Mostly Chinese tourists when we were there. Menu in restuarant is nearly all Chinese food that is why my heading of 'room only'. Sandwich shops on same street - but try Father Ted's Irish bar for nice meals! Free one hour wifi per person. Overall... More

After getting this hotel as a stopover between flights, I was expecting just a barebones bed and bathroom. But I was pleasantly surprised... the room was well appointed and clean - and very comfortable. Location is fantastic for downtown Auckland. Best of all was the service... I was traveling with a group of 21 students and the staff went out... More

The hotel is basically a heritage building with a modern 8 storey block at the rear. It is very central and a good place to explore downtown Auckland. It is convenient for the Sky Tower, the Inter City bus station, the shops, Britomart and the ferry terminal. The room was spacious, clean and had everything required though it took us... More

The good things: rooms are quite big and the hotel is in a pretty good position, quite close to the city center. The bad things: the bathroom was not perfectly cleaned and we found many things left from the previous guests in the closets. The noise during the night was unbearable, so much that it was very hard to get... More

This hotel is good value for money. The rooms were well appointed and clean and the location excellent, right in the city. The staff were helpful and we enjoyed our stay there. We would certainly stay there again if in Auckland as it is so central and very well priced.

Pulled up outside hotel. Nowhere to park while checking in. Ended up being told there carpark was full and would have to park at Rendezvous Hotel at a cost of $15 for the inconvenience. Staff were not at all helpful and could not understand us. We got hassled to move our car from a clearway rudely. The swimming pool at... More

Dear Geordie, Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay and we do apologize for your experience. We do only have limited car-parks at the hotel, and we thought it best to source for an alternate secure car-park close by to give our guests a choice once we are full. So the Rendezvous was chosen... More
