“Great apartment - hopeless wifi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

We found our apartment on the 8th floor very clean, well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom with washing machine and dryer was great. the kitchen was also good. The cutlery, crockery and cooking things were adequate. With supermarket, Countdown around the corner it was great. Not far to restaurants and bars along the bay. BUT the wifi was less than adequate. It could not sustain 2 devices and would frequently drop out. So not 21st C.

Love the apartment, being able to do our laundry.
We were there during one of the hotest summer in Auckland, thus we felt that the air cond was underpowering, with a 1 HP AC doing the cooling of a 2 BR apartment, especially rooms that facing the evening sun. Note, Air cond is only in the living room, there is no AC in the bed room.
The swimming pool, which is 150 meters away, while it was enjoyable to be able to swim there, the water was a tad on the cold side, but it's fine when you are in the water after 5 minutes.
It's probably because we were there over New Years period, therefore, was quite hard finding restaurants that were open.. having a supermarket was extremely useful - if you want to cook during your holiday but!
Inner Link Bus for $1.90 is a great way to go around town, catch it outside the hotel or across the road to go the other direction.

We stayed five nights in a two bedroom apartment in Stadium Waldorf around new year. Location fairly close to the harbor and city. The Countdown supermarket only one block away. The apartment had two single beds and one double. Instead of the 1000 dollar beds of the global hotel chains, the beds were perhaps a little bit soft for European taste. Cleaning was only once during our stay, so we had to take our trashes out daily. Good washing machine, efficient tumbler, small dishwasher and kitchenette with basic equipment for making small meals or breakfast. Enough warm water from the shower. Washing liquids, sugar, tea, salt, pepper, milk provided by the hotel and you can ask for more at the reception. Even though we were on 8th floor, there was some noice from the streets.

Room Tip: Of all apartments in NZL this was the most price worthy. Ask for a room on high floor for less stree...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment booked through wotif.com due to the excellent discounted rate. Such good value for money. Nice relatively spacious suite. Room with balcony looking towards the port. Car parking is convenient in a parking building behind. There is a supermarket just behind the complex for all your supplies, and coffee shops and restaurants below. Very close to the Vector Arena if you were attending a concert or show. A short, easy stroll to Britomart or Queen Street. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommend as a good place to stay with all of the necessary facilities + a washing machine which is a bonus if you are traveling for an extended period.

As a family of 5 we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. As a place to stay it was well laid out and an extra bed was provided which fitted nicely into the 2nd bedroom. The apartment was clean and the free use of a washing machine and tumble dryer was great. Town centre only a short walk away and the staff were only too happy to help with organising taxis. The only downside was the bedroom at the front did have some road noise if you had the windows open.

Room Tip: If travelling with kids and it is warm ask for a room at the back so you don't hear traffic with...

We found this room to be very comfortable and spacious. It was relatively close to the city and the staff were quite friendly. Having our own washing machine and drier proved yo be very handy. Overall we were very pleased with our stay.

We stayed at this hotel in a 2 bedroom apartment, it was quite a small apartment with the twin bed room a lot bigger than the master bedroom. The master bedroom only had one bedside table and lamp so tough luck if the other person wants to read before going to bed. The door to the master bedroom is a sliding glass door with a curtain for privacy, it looks like it is a converted office. There was not a lot of room for 4 suitcases and if you are looking for the lights switch for the master bedroom it is between the wardrobe and the sliding glass door panel. The positioning of the apartment building for tourists is a little bit out of the way. The staff were very helpful. We stayed on the 7th floor.
