We spent 5 nights at the Hotel DeBrett, and it was wonderful. As others have said, the design is interesting and beautiful. The location is great-- easy access to the main streets with public transport, the waterfront, and for our departure, the train station. Our corner room (above one of the 2 bars) overlooked 2 streets, but we never heard... More

Stayed as a couple in March as a birthday treat to see auckland. A great spot...very central yet quiet. The hotel has a modern, quirky feel to it and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Well done with staff training, it really pays off. Breakfast and dinner were both great. The room was lovely with a lounge area and... More

From the moment you walk into Hotel DeBrett you know the research on hotel choice has been worthwhile. Thanks to other Tripadvisor reviewers it wasn't a hard decision and we weren't disappointed. Having booked via Booking.com and often booking mid range on the availability, my wife and I were very pleased with our classic room at De Brett. The room... More

Just spent four nights at the fabulous Hotel DeBrett. Beautifully detailed rooms, great food and very friendly, helpful staff. A highlight is 'meet and greet' drinks each night in the groovy drawing room, where you get to meet fellow travellers from all over the world. This really is the place for travellers who enjoy great design, superb attention to detail,... More

I chose this hotel for my vacation because it was ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. Upon entering the hotel right away you can see that it is a very modern and chic hotel, which I absolutely loved. Positives: Friendly staff, well maintained rooms, great amenities, the bed is just ridiculous! (It really is as if you are sleeping on a cloud).... More

We had a delightful two night stay at Hotel DeBrett in Auckland central city. The hotel is a real treat: a spectacular restaurant with sunday night jazz, cocktail hour every day, great location near the modern art museum and Albert Park, and a short walk to the harbor, and a very nice breakfast. The room is beautiful--with a very comfortable... More

The Hotel DeBrett was a charming, clean and newly-renovated hotel. Modern conveniences and a spectacular restaurant are nestled above this bustling city street lobby. I would highly recommend the Hotel DeBrett whether you are in Auckland for a long stay or just a night. The staff is INCREDIBLY nice and helpful. And the cocktail hour didn't hurt either!

Well, we sure lucked out choosing this hotel (with help from TA). They were great communicating before we arrived, making appointments and being responsive to all my questions, and while we were there for three nights, they were very helpful in every way. The final day, when I called to ask where I could buy bubble wrap, they gave it... More

We only stayed one night at the De Brett upon our arrival in NZ, but wished that we had stayed longer as we loved this hotel. Excellent location in the centre of Auckland, great restaurant, lovely room & really interesting décor. We will definitely return & stay longer next time!
