Worth paying for location, good comfortable rooms and excellent staff. Don't get a cab from airport as the auckland cabbies are crooks! Ask hotel prior to arrival what is the best option for hotel transport.

Great downtown location with well-appointed, if slightly small, rooms. Free wifi that actually functions. Polite, attentive front-desk staff. Good value for money. Parking slightly expensive. On-site restaurant.

The Rydges is a good address to stay downtown with a modern, slight hip and fresh design, all with a young touch and very friendly staff and a quick check in. The King standard room is of a nice size and offers the right amount of space for 2 travelers, incl. storage & suitcase space, working desk and a lounge... More

We only had one night's stay at the Rydges Auckland and couldn't have been happier with the service and facilities. We asked for a quiet room to let our young boy get to sleep early and that's what we got. He was so comfy in the bed, that everyone got a peaceful night. We also asked for a view across... More

We stayed here for the Auckland Nines NRL tournament back in January/February. (I know, a little late on my reviews for this trip but we've been super busy since we got back!) The hotel itself is ok, a little dated but still fairly clean...mostly....but I'll get to that. On the first day a metal skirt came off the wall as... More

Nice hotel which is very centrally located and only a short walk away from the Sky Tower, the Waitemata harbour, and the ferry terminals. Room was spacious, modern and clean with a rather large window front. There is free coffee, milk, and tea available. Friendly staff. Very special thanks to the concierge who was very helpful and patient regarding our... More

We expected the harbour-view room to be special, but it really wasn't. It was nice, but there were many buildings between us and the harbour. The bathroom was small and there was very little drawer/closet space. The location was convenient--we walked nearly everywhere. The concierge was not helpful in getting our lost luggage, and he really messed up our friend's... More
