My husband, son and I spent 6 nights at Arista in the 3 bedroom apartment. Mike made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and was so informative on dining out and attractions nearby. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We received new towels daily and and a mini service. We were so comfortable and were a bit... More

A very friendly family run property, close to all attractions. We had the large apartment behind Reception, which accommodated 4 adults very comfortably. The living area was spacious and included an outdoor area with a clothes line, and the kitchen was well equipped. We were given good advice on dining and attractions and were made to feel very much at... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Arista of Rotorua. spacious, clean and comfortable. We got there late in the evening just before 8pm, when checkin closes for the day unless you ring to to arrange check in after hours. Despite nearly closing for the day, Mike, the owner was friendly and helpful, having only 1.5 days to see the area,... More

Family of 4 stayed here for two nights. Spotlessly clean, nice and roomy, lovely hosts. There are fun outdoor hot tub/ bathtubs in private courtyards with each room. The kids loved that! The location is right in the heart of rotorua. Just 5 minutes to parks & "eat street." Highly recommend it!

We asked a thousand questions and were given excellent answers and recommendations. The spa bath was so much fun to have and relaxing too. There were also laundry facilities on the... More

There were 2 large TVs and the bathroom was beautiful with lots of towels in addition to the towels provided for the spa. The room was very... More

My husband, two adult children and I stayed in a unit that could accommodate six. Very clean and tidy with our own spa bath. However, there's only one toilet that comes with an attached shower. Might not be enough if there are six ppl. Reasonably priced. Good location. Welcoming host. Overall Good.
