I stayed at the City Lodge in Auckland for my first trip to the city. It was absolutely perfect for a couple of nights and as a base for exploring the city. It was spotlessly clean with a great comfy bed, sky tv, plenty of choice for drinks, herbal and black tea, hot chocolate and coffee, even filter coffee with... More

The location of the hotel is very good. It's walking distance to the Harbor, Ferry boats Tower, restaurants, bars, stores, public transportation.... The room is not big but comfortable for one person.

We stayed here for one night on our return to Auckland at the end of our New Zealand trip. The facility was new and clean and well managed. The fixtures in the room were a bit cheap and plasticky (is that a word?!), but good value for money. The communal kitchen is very well equipped with four separate ranges and... More

I had a wonderful stay at the lodge. The staff were super helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and very patient. I had a queen and found it spacious, especially in comparison to a hotel I had stayed in a few days prior. The rooms were clean and modern and i appreciated the availability of multiple washers and dryers. The lodge was conveniently... More

I have stayed at city lodge several times and generally rate it highly, but this time was given a room on the ground floor next to the lift. Inadequate blinds meant room was lit up all night from block opposite and the car park and noisy from people waiting for lift.

We found the location to be excellent I could walk from hotel to viaduct in 30 min and I am not fit. The staff were very friendly and pleasant, little convenience store across road for any xtras that may have been forgotten. Would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here at short notice due to a change in travel plans. This is definitely a backpackers, make absolutely no mistake about that. I stayed in a 'Superior Double Room' by myself, it was really only big enough for one. Modern but cheaply constructed budget building - everything reflective of that.

Thank you for sharing your feedback on City Lodge. We have a few different room types from standard Doubles to superior Queen rooms which you would find larger. I hope we have the opportunity to show you the larger room type during your next travels to Auckland NZ. Best regards Glenn Gairdner More
