Great location; near to shopping centers and in/outbound travel. Hotel is clean, enough linen is provided and thrice a week the rooms are serviced. In addition, whenever anything is needed by the occupants, they just need to contact the hotel service desk and whatever is provided timely. There is also a restuarant on the premises, however there are alos many... More

Stayed here back in March for 2 nights at the end of a trip around New Zealand, booked purely for the central location and decent price. There are two entrances - one off Queen St (where all the shops are) you have to walk down a long corridor then up some stairs and around a corner or there's a back/side... More

In a great location it is central to all the great restaurants, bars and shops in the Queen Street area. The in-house restaurant serves really good food and has quick room service. The rooms are quiet, clean and well serviced. The gym had enough equipment in it for a basic workout. Staff were friendly in all encounters.

A very nicely presented Hotel in the middle of Aucklands Quen Street. Nice room with a OK views of the the central city. The Suite was very nice , very spacious, it might have been helped by being a corner room, nice and quiet although I slpet so soundly it's hard too tell, so I guess the Bed was excellent.

We chose to stay in an executive suite at CityLife because we were hosting a 21st at another CBD venue and needed a kitchen and more space than most hotels/rooms offer. It was perfect for our needs. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, the suite was spacious and had everything we needed. We were on a high floor as... More

We were impressed by the CityLife hotel, with an excellent location on Queen st. We were welcomed as newlyweds and given a nice quiet room on a higher floor as requested on booking. Queen st. is noisy on Friday and Saturday nights so make sure to do this. We only stayed one night and didn’t make use of the very... More

We always stay in the City Life when visiting Auckland as it is a great location and walking distance to everything we want. The staff there are amazing and the service we get is fantastic. The only small let down is that the rooms (especially bathrooms) are a little tired so you don't get that luxury feeling, but certainly nothing... More

Great stay. Walking distance to Britomart, Waterfront and Theatres. Good shopping locally. Very helpful staff and great restaurant enjoyed eating there. Only down side for me is in bar and reception all seating VERY low and I was unable to use it maybe a variety of seating would be better option.

I stayed here on a solo trip for two nights and had a fantastic time. If you're wanting to get a great view of the city look into booking a studio as they are on the higher floors. The concierge was fantastic. I had an issue with the wifi that was not complementary in my room and contacted the concierge... More
