Iv stayed here on more then one occasion for business. I love the friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble and that is what will keep me going back. The rooms are always perfect and clean. Breakfast is always the highlight with a huge selection. Would highly recommend

This hotel is centrally located. Offers free unlimited wifi (something in NZ still is considered an extra in most hotels) Rooms are comfortable and breakfast buffet is comprehensive. The hotel is very popular for parties and meetings, so expect a busy lobby and some noise in the first hours of the night during the weekend. It's a good intermediate category... More

I stayed at Rydges while my mum was having surgery. It was a fantastic place and very handy to town and easy to get a taxi for my necessary travels to Auckland Hospital each day. The staff are helpful and there was one standout man who was the concierge. He took great care of me and made sure I was... More

This is our second stay at the Rydges and its a good, comfortable hotel with easy access to the city and the best buffet breakfast (eggs benedict!). Easy to get to, great valet service, happy to recommend.

I've stayed at Rydges many times in the past but this was the first time since their refurbishment. It looks a lot better than it used to - it feels rather different from a lot of hotels in Auckland CBD. It was bright and airy and the breakfast buffet was awesome. We had a lot of drinks delivered to our... More

It's very difficult to separate mid range city hotels. This one ticks most of the boxes and is convenient for the city centre and harbour. Nothing was outstanding but yet I have no major criticisms. I'd have some quibbles about breakfast which after 7.15 tended to be over-run by coach parties and hence I'd advise an early start. I'd also... More

Fortunately the helpful staff make up for small rooms. Good location in center of town, about 5-10 minutes walk to the ferry terminal and waterfront. Try the barista stand in the lobby for coffee and a muffin in the morning. Well worth the stop.

Rydges Auckland was a surprise, very convenient to the place I was going to - 100m away can't get better than that. The rooms are on the smaller side but still have everything needed. The room I was in had a perfect view of the apartments opposite and I was entertained for a few minutes by 2 people on separate... More

From check in, to the bar, the restaurant and housekeeping the staff simply can't do enough to help you here and are all so friendly. Fantastically comfortable beds & pillows and the breakfast buffet is one of the best I've ever seen. Great central city location.
