city Oaks right in the middle of Auckland CBD. Staff were great [ even though we didnt arrive until midnight we were still greeted warmly] Room good size, although carpets could do with an update. so quiet you wouldnt know you were in the central city. continental breakfast brought to the room every day.would stay there again.

Just 10 minutes walk to the Viaduct, 5 minutes to the CBD, easy access from and to the Motorways and excellent value for money! We have stayed in both a two bedroom apartment with the family and a studio as a couple, both were very nice.

The front entrance is a bit depressing. Reception staff surprisingly cheerful and helpful despite their surroundings. We had booked a two bed apartment for the price of a one bed so were able to use the second bedroom for luggage as the bedrooms are quite small. The apartment was well equipped and clean although the showerroom could have done with... More

This hotel is very well equipped with washing machine, dryer, and all the cooking facilities you could need. The room is not especially spacious - bedroom cramped and we had nowhere to put luggage. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Cleaning was fine, although 1 day was a holiday so the room wasn't serviced at all. The hotel is centrally located... More

Plus is the sky tower is very close, but the general area is very seedy. Staff were helpful but we had to park a block down the street in... More

The hotel was booked by our travel agent so was pleasantly suppirised at the size of our room. The room was clean and bed very comfortable. The only down size for us that it is located at the top end of town and with little public transport because of the one way road system. For one in their 70s we... More

Dear Denwats Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and we are glad to hear that you had a very positive experience. Our location has the positive attribute of being up the hill from the main CBD street making it a quieter environment, but this in turn makes it a little bit of a hill climb to... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Reception staff friendly and welcoming. Room was very spacious for the four of us, well equiped kitchen and very comfortable beds. Clean and airy. The only down-side was every time we switched on a ceiling light, an annoying fan burst into life! Bit annoying at night as took ages to switch itself off. We had... More

We were looking forward to our night at Auckland City Oaks for an Anniversary treat. Our experience was very disappointing. Rooms don't look like advertised. Very dirty rooms. Stained sheets with black hairs on them. Dirty carpet with red stains on it. Didn't use the cups or cutlery as they looked unclean. Breakfast was disappointing - juice from India! and... More
