Great location in downtown Auckland. We stayed 2 nites before picking up camper van for 5 week tour of North and South Islands. We wanted to stay in hotel before we left New Zealand before going to Sydney, but the hotel was completely booked.

Upon arriving in the foyer expectation were not high as the foyer is very dated. And the lifts are very old & small. But once in our room on the 5th floor. The two bedroom room was very clean, large and had a modern feel. The kitchenette was handy to have specially with the microwave. Though we only stayed the... More

Our rooms were modern and the beds the most comfortable I have slept in for a very long time. The location is fantastic smack bang in the middle of the city and an easy 15 minute walk to the Vecta Arena.

Downfall was the hot water ran out after only a few minutes in the shower. Spoke to reception about this & they said it was... More

Warm welcome & quick check in, large room on 12th floor. A bit of noise over night, but not to bad for the middle of Auckland's CBD. Very comfortable bed & a good nights sleep by us both. Short walk to the Civic for a show

After booking in we found that our apartment had only 3 beds for our family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers. On advising the front desk that we would like the sofa bed made up we were informed that they would charge an extra $30 per night for this as although we booked for 5 people and gave their ages,...

The Best Western President hotel is in an ideal location. It is right downtown and 1 block away from Sky Center. Moreover, there are plentiful restaurants nearby, and a large grocery store next door. There is also bus service 1 block away both around town and to the airport. The Wharf from which all the ferries depart, is a very... More

This hotel is in the central part of Auckland, very close to the Sky Tower. It is fairly convenient to the cruise terminal and the pickup for local tours and the hop-on hop-off bus is only a 5-minute walk away. The rooms were comfortable and there were numerous cafes/restaurants in the vicinity.

This was the first hotel that we stayed in on our trip to New Zealand. As we arrived at the hotel at 07:00 AM our room was not available, but they were very helpful in storing our luggage until the 02:00 PM check in time. Once we had checked in the room was quite nice with a small refrigerator and... More

The hotel is located right in the city!! Its perfect if you intend to explore the city, walking distance to Sky City &Viaduct. Lifts need major maintenance. Rooms close to the road side were very noisy. Free wifi. Rooms were clean. Would highly recommend this hotel.
