This is my hotel of choice if I have to stay in Auckland for business. Comfy bed, warm pool, just enough gym equipment for me, and consistently good service from staff. (I also like the breakfast smoothie 'shots')

Stayed overnight in late June 2014 as a couple. Arrived here late, and booked the only free room available at the time within our price range. Our car was looked after for us as this is included in the room. The room itself is breathtaking. The staff go above and beyond. We arrived late for breakfast, which was free with... More

We stayed 2 nights in CityLife. The location was superb as it was in downtown area, with shops and restaurants nearby. Moreover, a further 10-15 mins walk to the Waterfront area was even better with a number of restaurants there. The Airport shuttle bus just stopped right in front of CityLife. Our one bedroon apartment spacious, nicely furnished and equipped... More

I was on transit in Auckland on two occasions and stayed at this hotel. The building seems dated but what made this a great hotel is the location - very much in the middle of Queen St with all the sights of the city within walking distance. It also offers an excellent location if you are taking the Airport Bus... More

I needed a place to stay the night which was convenient to the Auckland CBD. The reception staff were polite as were the staff in the restaurant. I had an excellent meal. The suite consisted of a lounge/dining/kitchen with an attached bedroom. While my stay was short, arriving early evening and leaving early morning, the City Life was at least... More

We decided to have a weekend up in Auckland with our 4 boys. It can sometimes be difficult to find suitable accommodation for our large family but CityLife ticked all of the boxes.
