The hotel was clean with all the basics the room was tiny and cramped with hardly anywhere to put anything but this was okay for us as we were out the whole night. Also choose not to have breakfast here as it was so expensive much cheaper and nicer looking restaurants down at the viaduct. Overall a cheap place to... More

Thanks for your generally good review. Yes some of our rooms are on the small side but that's the reality of inner city real estate values. Thanks for appreciating the overall good value. More

Kiwi International hotel should be a motel. Firstly, there was no fridge in our room, or a phone to call reception. THeir breakfast opt is so pricy compare to other hotels with higher ratings. $15 for a continental breakfast, you can get a full breakfast for $20 or $25 at a hotel like mecure or sudima. our room was not...

This reviewer says "I was certainly not on a budget". Why then would you book into a hotel at the budget end of the market, take the cheapest Economy room, squeeze in an extra person - then complain that it was budget?? Our standard rooms are really nice - why go for the economy?? Our breakfast is actually better value... More

The only pro of this hotel is its location, on a quiet road off Queen Street. The hotel quality is pretty low, with just 1 shared bathroom on each floor. No free wifi; breakfast not included. I would not go there a second time.

Do you have the right hotel here? We are actually ON Queen Street not in a street. We do offer free wi-fi. More

Stayed here for three nights. Not being from Auckland the directions were spot on and I found it easily, even though I arrived in rush hour. Staff very helpful on arrival and room fine, even been changed up from a single to a double. It was clean and warm enough. Large cupboard to put case in so not stuck in... More

We stayed here as We'd read it had a great location near the city and was on the way to the airport via the shuttle. This was correct & great if you like being on top of a very long steep hill. The hotel is right next to the famous "k road" which in my opinion isn't a bonus. The... More

Thanks for your review. A number of your comments are trivial and knit picking. We still believe we are the best value budget hotel in Central Auckland especially when free parking, free wi-fi, no credit card surcharges etc. are taken into account. All of the central city is noisy at times. The only way around this would be to stay... More

Well what can I say.... Myself and my partner stayed for 5nights and hated every minute of our stay. Our room was freezing, no heating, stained sheets with damp musky bed linen, the windows may aswell have been left open with the drafts coming through.the pictures on there website were nothing like the room stated that we had booked!Although it...

Malicious (suspicious?) and highly inaccurate. It just doesn't stack up. Who would stay in a place where they "hated every minute" for 5 nights - especially when there is a no questions asked refund policy if guests not happy with their stay. Specific comments of the hotel are simply untrue. And other emotive nonsense... "you could here (sic) everything outside... More

I had to attend a funeral in Auckland and shared a room with my parents for 3 nights. One would think this was a potentially stressful situation however the room was clean. There was no noise, free wifi, the communal hotel facilities were easily accessed with the front house receptionist even lighting the fire of the large lounge only for... More

Fair value hotel for the price. Twenty minute walk to the Marina/shops Room was adequate for two people without falling over each other. En suite with toiletries were supplied. On site parking was really useful.

I wanted somewhere reasonably priced in the city that did not charge for parking (which can be quite hard to find) The kiwi international was the one we chose. The rooms were ok, but it looked like the bathrooms, has been "added on", which made the room smaller, but for the price this was OK. The location at the top... More
