We were up on 7th or 8th floor and had a lovely view over the harbour. We couldn't be happier when we first checked in. I wouldn't say the hotel is spotless clean and I question about the daily cleaning but I thought never mind, it is good enough. The hotel is in Central Auckland, as such great for all... More

This is my second Auckland long term review following a lengthy and enjoyable stay at Rendezvous Hotel. I chose to opt for something slightly more spacious, fully featured, and closer to Auckland central, so 12 months later here are my thoughts for all you aspiring travellers.... Metropolis is considered to be the most luxurious accommodation in Auckland, though from my... More

Our guests and staff had a nice quality selection of food and a well stocked bar to choose from. The room was a relaxing alternative to a lecture room and it helped the flow of the evening. Thanks to well mannered wait staff everyone was kept happy.

I'd previously stayed in this building through one of the other companies, at the time the world cup was on so there was limited choice. I liked the building, the facilitates in the location so for this visit I thought I'd try this company. This one is the premium offering within the building, it was certainly more expensive than the... More

Stayed for 9 nights. We booked one of the privately owned apartments but was serviced weekly. the location of Metropolis is central and the higher you are the greater the views of Auckland city and the Skyline. The bed was extremely comfortable and bathroom was squeaky clean. The furnishings were comfortable and kitchen was very adequate for long stays. The... More

The Metropolis is actually an apartment building that functions as a hotel for some of the units. It is the tallest (I think) apartment complex in NZ and sits in the heart of central Auckland 1 block off Queen St., at the bottom of Albert Park (near Auckland University). I always look for a unit with a commanding view of... More

Stayed 3 nights and could not have been better. Good quality, spacious apartment which suited our needs perfectly. Very accommodating staff and went out of their way to ensure I always had a carpark. Wonderful location and would definitely stay again.

the room was dirty - thick dust over all surfaces, scuff marks everywhere, filthy tables, chairs stained, floor stained, there was tape holding the door together, cupboards were scratched. do they really think people are going to pay for this? we found a room in another hotel.

This is now the Clarion Collection Hotel Metropolis. When we booked the Clarion Metropolis, we were not exactly sure how convenient its location would be with it being in the CBD. We were quite happy to find that it is extremely convenient. Only a block from Queen St. and a 10-15 minute walk to the ferry dock. We were given... More
