The first thing to be careful about is that parking here is very limited! We were told that we would have free parking here but when we arrived we were greeted by the sign 'Car park full', which sent us into a panic! I went up to the front desk and he said we should park in a local car... More

I must say that althought hotel wasn't really to good standard but certainly staff were well trained, friendly & helpful. Hotel can be enjoyed by everyone. Food was great. Resealably clean room. Srounded by various resturents, bar, takeaways.

Stayed one night at the Kiwi International. It was 7degC overnight in Auckland, and the heater was broken. When asking for a heater in the middle of the night, the front desk said there was little they could do. Then after insisting they came with a tiny electric heater and started to argue that the curtains should be closed better... More

"A night from hell" Yes - it certainly was for our staff member who was fearful for his safety having been confronted by this ultra aggressive guest that screamed and shouted at other guest also. This individual has been trespassed from our property and is fortunate not to have spent the remainder of his night in a police cell. More

Clean, tidy, and at a walking distance of some attractions, such as sky tower and waterfront, as well as to central bus transfer station. Good value for taxi to airport. Close to good cafes and restaurants. Very good price. Arrive early if you go by car. We didn't, so we had to use a close by paid parking. It wasn't... More

Thank you for your great review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, that you found it good value and the location suited. Parking is always a challenge especially right in the city. We can usually accommodate most when there is an even spread of international and domestic guests. More

I was only staying here for a night and needed a cheap room in a good location. Served its purpose, nice friendly staff and adequate facilities. I would advise guests to arrive early as it would be very inconvenient if you got here and the car park was full - you would have to park and pay down the road.... More

Thanks for the +ve review. We're pleased you found it good value. This reviewer stayed in one of our Economy rooms which are quite basic but as he commented are the best value hotel room in Auckland. Most of our rooms are standard Ensuites with a good range of services in them and not much more. As a matter of... More

Stayed for just one night. We were given a En suite Family Unit (sleeps 4) even though there was just two of us. The room is clean, comfortable & has a little modern touch to it. There is an open bar and restaurant available to guests. However, the wait staff is a little rude (no manners) but its no biggie... More

The Kiwi International Hotel has a great location: right in the center of Auckland, on walking distance from all the main streets. The hotel was very neat upon arrival, with a cozy lounge area at the reception. It was a bit of a challenge to get to our room with a lot of luggage, as there are different stairs, halls... More

Thanks you for your comprehensive review. I'm sure intending travellers will find it useful. We agree that the parking can be tight if the hotel is busy - however it is free. Your final paragraph sums us up nicely... "All in all you do get your money's worth at this place, as it is a great budget option in the... More

This is not a 4 star hotel but if that is what you want stay at a Hilton. The rooms are not large but they are adequate sort of European style. They are clean and a great value for the location. It is about 15 minutes from the town center and about 30 minutes from the ferry building. Some of... More

We stayed for one night in May 2014 and booked this hotel as it was the cheapest option with an en-suite bathroom, parking and wifi we could find in a central location. Yes the rooms are a little on the small side and are a little bit old-fashioned but for the price we paid you couldn't really ask for more.... More

Many thanks for the great review and your long term loyalty. A bit perplexed about the pricing comment especially given that we consistently rate No.1 on TripAdvisor in the "Best Value" category for Central Auckland hotels. Winter rates for our ensuites are the same as they were 5 years ago. We look forward to hosting you again sometime. More
