Fantastic location, right next to Myers park and in the middle of the market place. Small room, with a queen and single bed for the 3 of us, but very comfortable. Only on Saturday night did the noise from outside bother us. Great staff, especially helpful travel desk. Really good value for money.

We had a large room (#108) with a double and a single bed. The decor was minimal with lots of beige! Tea, coffee and a kettle was provided, which was great as we checked in very late. The shared shower/ toilets were never busy and the water was hot. Our room did seem to back onto a road with lots... More

Thanks for your great review. We agree that it's better to spend a little extra and get one of our standard Ensuite rooms although the Economy rooms are popular if you're on a tight budget. Re WiFi - we give everyone an allowance to start but if you need more it's available free as we how important WiFi (especially free)... More

This hotel is located within walking distance from Auckland CBD; but you have to climb uphill when you come back to the hotel. Hotel was already a bit worn out, but it was clean. Parking spaces are free, but I would not recommend them to anybody with a really big car; most of the parking spaces were quite tight spots.

Thanks for your review. We agree that the parking spaces are tight but the price (ie. free) is right - and most people appreciate this. There's also plenty of pay parking nearby if need be. More

Have stayed here a few times now and it suits us perfectly. Great location, staff friendly and helpful, room has all the basics and such a great price you are left with more money to spend on everything else. If you are out and about most of the time and really just need a bed and a decent bathroom this... More

Nice and well located with friendly stuff!!! The airport express bus drops you and picks you up right in front of the hotel. The hotel has reasonable prices, clean rooms, nice staff, no luxury. Other than that I didn't have a any bad experiences while staying there.

Hotel is in good location and bearing that in mind, the price is very good. The room I was in was very small but ok for 2-3 days but no more. WiFi free and good allowance but somewhat temperamental in availability. This is important for planning routes, where to eat etc. Bathroom has enough space but had tiny basin. Needs... More

Friendly staff, great location and parking in downtown Auckland makes this a great place to stay on a budget with the feel of something more expensive. The omelet is recommended for the morning. Plenty of info for travelers as well

I stayed in an economy room, was small but did the trick and was a good price. Lots of tea and coffee in the room and the bed was comfy. Had a drink in the hotel bar which was nice. The guy who worked the night shift at the reception was lovely, really really helpful. I had a problem with... More

The Kiwi International is located down an alley way and is tucked in among a number of other buildings. As a result, there is very little curb appeal, however, because of its location, it is very quiet at night. There is a small park (Myers Park) directly behind the hotel. That fact, combined with the set back from the street,... More

I stay here whenever I visit Auckland as this clean comfortable hotel has everything you need including FREE PARKING! In Queen St!!! The rooms are basic but you can make a cuppa. If you want to eat cheaply why not choose the inhouse restaurant or walk out the door and choose between numerous restaurants and cafes Catering for all tastes!... More
