We knew this hotel would not be anything more than a place to hang our hat and we chose it for location. Do not be thrown off by what it looks like from outside or in the lobby!! We arrived at 8:30 a.m. from a 14 hour flight and were so thankful for the kind and helpful front desk staff!... More

The location of the hotel is excellent and very handy to lots of restaurants and a supermarket next door. Rooms were more than adequate for us, spacious,clean and with a little kitchen too. We booked a parking space for our people mover and had no problem fitting in. Breakfast was expensive but very nice and a good selection.

Stayed here with four other adults. Had booked a two bed apartment style room that was supposed to have a seating area (according to booking.com). When we got to the room, we noticed that we had no sitting area and the beds were set up for two adults in one room and three in another with no window! The room... More

Loved the room, but what a shame that the noise of the elevators (service elevators, perhaps?) was pretty much a constant all night! The rooms themselves were lovely, with plenty of room, and the location of the hotel is perfect, just off Queen street.

The positive: very central location (200 metres away from the Sky Tower, a lot of sights accessible by walking, good eating options near by), nice staff, very spacious (we had a one bedroom apartment and really a lot of space incl. a fully equipped little kitchenette). Also it was really clean. The cons: the rooms are pretty dated and have... More

We stayed here 4 nights as the price was very good for Auckland. The staff helpfully stored our luggage upon our early arrival and pre departure. The hotel breakfast is frightfully pricey but the Countdown grocery sits almost next door. So we made do with microwaved food. We had a 6th floor room, which was large and well-appointed. Only real... More

The hotel is well located to the local and national transport networks, and nearby to varied eating and entertainment. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was well appointed, but could benefit from better toiletries and a few photos/pics on the walls. The elevator system could do with an upgrade. My main gripe would be that complimentary wifi... More

Overall a good hotel to stay in for the night. The room we booked at the top floor was what we requested - away from the traffic noise and facing the sky tower.
