It is a 4.5 star hotel and with the recently added Hobson Tower has... More

A group of us stayed 4 nights here. Great customer service. Wonderful location and close to everything. The breakfast was wonderful. Room was a normal sized hotel room. The only negative thing we found was the cost of parking. I don't know how they compare to other hotels but I thought $34/day was expensive. We will definitely stay here again... More

My husband and I enjoyed 5 nights away from our renovations. From all the hotels - this one catered for everything we needed from parking, great location, nice food & bar area, to a lovely room. It was a great escape:). From a feedback perspective the coffee's could improve. Plus promotional activity could be aligned to help the staff act... More

The hotel is situated in the city centre close to many attractions, the Skytower is nearby and it is also close to the harbour. Suprisingly there is no toalet brush there, is that usual in New Zealand? There is a long and winding corridore to some og the rooms. Anyway the staff is very helpful and serviceminded and you can...

large, modern hotel in the city centre. Our family room was a good size and comfortable. The major positive was the friendliness of the staff. They paid lots of attention to our two sons and made them feel right at home. The breakfast was good and the location perfect for getting out and about in Auckland. The only negative was... More

They Rydges isn't a bad spot, it is located in downtown Auckland. The staff are pleasant and the hotel is pretty well run and spotless. Rydges wins a few brownie points by offering free Wifi throughout its premises - a few other large chains could learn a thing or two from this. My ROom was comfortable and well appointed however...

This functional building appears wedged on to a tight city site but manages to be welcoming and laid back. I had a corner room, with a bit of a harbour view, which was pleasantly standard compared to my more opulent previous night's digs in Rydges Sydney Airport. On the ninth floor this was quiet. The ground floor bar was friendly... More

Only stayed here one night but I used to stay a lot. They have renovated since then and the whole place is looking very nice. Comfortable room, good bathroom, only downer was the view from the window - or should I say "half a view?" I could see the Harbour Bridge in the gap between two buildings but as I... More
