low rate hotel, booked by friends, ewee sorry not my choice of hotel at all. Their are better places to stay for the same price, sorry guys. Very poor. No heating in the rooms, freezing when arriving from a warm country. No bar fridge. very basic. No extra blankets.

Clearly our hotel won't suit everyone and this reviewer falls into that category, probably wanting something more upmarket. We agree that there are better places at the same price but you won't find them in Auckland City. All the rooms have heating and we also provide extra portable heaters if that is not enough. More

THis waz our first night stay in NZ and it was everything we needed. We stayed in a twin room with sep bathrooms. The room was clean and spacious. Complimentary towels and soap, showers were clean and had good pressure and hot water. Great central location, the staff were very friendly and helpful

3 friends and I stayed here for my friends 21st birthday. We arrived with a lot of bags and we struggled to park our car when we arrived. When receiving our room key, we were given very vague directions to our hotel room which included going up a lift and through three sets of doors with multiple bags that we... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review however I feel we have a clear misalignment of expectation vs price paid. The reviewers will have paid $NZ46 per person for their triple ensuited room. While we offer... prime central city location, free parking which was taken advantage of, an ensuited room, free wi-fi etc.etc. we don't have the staffing... More

The location and value can't be faulted. The room was small but clean. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. I'm 6"4 and normally find it difficult to sleep well but I could here. You can hear people in the other rooms bathrooms and people outside as the walls are thin and windows aren't great. They did keep the cold out. I... More

In a city where downtown hotel prices start at around $125, and easily reach $300 and more for a relatively modest level of business style comfort, the Kiwi International's single room with bathroom at NZ$79 is quite a bargain. The location at the top of Queen Street is handy to lots of ethnic restaurants, but the walk up from the... More

Thanks for your generally great review. I think other travelers will find this comprehensive review useful. For guests travelling on their own it is often hard to find a place catering to them without having to purchase a double room thus our single rooms are an advantage. More

Definitely not a luxury hotel but value for money as in a great location and staff were friendly.

Heater didn't seem like it was working or it took a really... More

The location if the hotel is great! Only a short walk from the centre and the sky tower. The rooms themselves weren't the greatest, I guess you pay for the location. The staff were very friendly and helpful but maybe spend a little lore time making the rooms friendlier and it would be fantastic

Thank you for your review. We agree our rooms have the essentials but are not luxurious. Thanks for mentioning the staff - they always appreciate that - and our great location. More

The room was small and obsolete, thought it would be better. The bathroom was very small. Good things: parking, position, friendly staff. Laundry service is quite expensive considering how old the machines are.

Thanks for your review especially the positive aspects. We agree that our rooms are small but we'd like to think that is reflected in good value prices. All guest laundry plant was replaced with brand new Maytag machinery in November of 2011. Interestingly this is the first ever criticism we've had of what we believe is a great facility for... More

Stay here regularly on trip to Auckland. Reminds me of good old fashioned European hotels...Grand entrance, reception, lobby with comfortable seats, a restaurant, elevator...ok single room is small but what do you expect for the price...it has all I need,always super clean, with even a basin,coffee, tea,toiletries, so perfect for me!
