The hotel is well located, just where you want to be if you're a tourist. The suites were large, had kitchenette, sitting area and bedroom. Everything was clean. We loved discovering Auckland, the restaurants, the museums, ferry to Tiri Tiri - everything!

This hotel is right on Queen Street, a short walk from the waterfront. It is walking distance to many restaurants and also near the Sky Tower landmark. Also close to the Modern Art museum and parks. The rooms are clean with normal amenities and the front desk and concierge are a great help with maps and suggestions. Luggage can easily... More

this hotel is right in the heart of the city, shops at your front door and close to the buses and rail station, the hotel has a very pleasant reception/wait area and the staff we have come across have all been extremely nice to deal with.

Downtown city hotel with great bed, great breakfast, but best feature is it's location. Easy 10 min walk to Albert Park, sky tower, ferry building, shopping, restaurants and water front. Definitely would stay here each visit to Auckland! Enjoy.

Good location and spot in city, nice room and view. Beds quite hard though. Only downside is the parking cost as more expensive then other hotels and trying to get to hotel as but tight access. Once there it's great. Had a lovely meal at restaurant but the service from staff was only average

We had a few bumps along the road of check-in with a misunderstanding of the rooms we had booked but they worked it out. We had 2 rooms adjoining, but had to request that the doors be unlocked. Kitchen area was nice and had in-room laundry facilities but one person had to sleep on the couch in the living area... More

We stayed at CityLife last year for our wedding anniversary and came back again for another visit. We find the staff helpful and efficient. We upgraded our room to a bigger one with a little more space than the one we had last year and that was worth doing as we like a bit more room than just a standard... More

The staff were so helpful and friendly, especially Losanna, in housekeeping, also it is very handy for Queen St. The breakfasts were lovely and plentiful, orange juice to die for. Reception could be refurbished but that is nit picking. I'd go back if I needed to be in Auckland again.

City Life, great location,step out into Queen Street. Everyone at reception were courteous, polite and very helpful, fabulous service. The room we had was lovely, our older kids had a connected but separate unit, 3 TVs, sports and movie channels, they were thrilled. Will definitely be back. Many thanks.

The lobby area gives the impression that the rest of the hotel is to a similar standard. This is not the case. We had a one-bedroom suite on the 22nd floor which was very dated. The only parking offered by the Hotel is valet at $35 (£17) per night. The price for 4 nights was approx £800. Definately not worth... More
