The rooms may be just a small box with a bed & a bathroom BUT the location is fantastic. If you want breakfast you must book it in advance at the reception & make sure that if you pay for it when you book it that they don't try to charge for it you when you check out. I nearly... More

My college dorm room was larger and nicer than this room. The room was hardly larger than the bed and my husband and I had to back out to pass each other walking around the bed. But the location is terrific (1 block from SkyCenter and only a few blocks from the harbour), it was clean and the staff were... More

This basic hotel with a good bed at an affordable price for a central location was just fine for a night, especially if you are solo and have just one suitcase to fit in the room. It was so easy to reach from stop 3 in Queen's St on the Airport bus and the staff were very helpful and friendly.... More

This basic hotel is located just a 2 minute walk from Queen Street and Sky City. If you want a place to stay (and are not worried about amazing facilities and amenities) then I recommend this hotel. I travelled with two Japanese friends, who speak little English. The staff were very kind and tried their best to communicate with them.... More

I am giving this hotel an extra step up for one simple reason. Our 12 hour flight from Los Angeles arrived in Auckland around 7 am and we arrived in the city around 8 am. Check in was supposed to be at 1400 and there we were exhausted and with our luggage. No problems, they let us check in anyway.... More

Great hotel in the middle of the city which offers rooms at a reasonable price. The rooms are quite small and do not have air conditioning, but that shouldn't be a problem if you are staying for a few nights. On another note, due to the prime location there is a bit of noise pollution throughout the day and on... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Very central to everything in the city. The customer service was also extremely friendly! As is the rest of the country it appears. The basic room is small - industrial looking toilet and shower (like from a high school locker room) with a shower head that only suits someone of my... More

Not quite up to par. When we checked in we were given a room with NO windows! Weirdest thing ever. Went down to complain and got moved. The rooms are pretty sparse. We complained the first night that the air wouldn’t cool room and got a lecture how to use the remote. Also about the toilet running. When I complained... More

When I arrived at this hotel, I noticed how nice the lobby was. Upon check in the guy behind the desk told me how I had got a really good deal, this made me think the rooms would be really good! However looking at the room I had been given, it looked like it could do with a good make-over!... More

Great location just around the corner from Queen Street. Short walk to Sky Tower and to eating places. We had a small room but it was cheap. You get what you pay for. Breakfast good. Service is excellent.
