“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I have stayed at the Waldorf stadium apartments 3 times now, it has always been a pleasant place to stay. Location is awesome for going to concerts at Vector Arena, countdown supermarket across the road and 5 min walk to queen street. Rooms are a good size and beds are comfortable. Staff are always pleasant and are happy to help. It is the only place we stay at when we go to Auckland!

We stayed for the Ed Sheeran concert. We had a two bedroom apartment which was brilliant for three of us. If you are staying in Auckland for a concert at Vector Arena, this is the best location, it was practically a 5 min walk to the arena. With a supermarket nearby and being near the waterfront, it's a great place.

The rooms were lovely and clean and very modern and cosy. Highly recommend. There is a parking complex practically opposite the apartments which was also made everything very easy. Yes you do pay extra per night for the parking but worth it. I would definitely stay here again.

Hi akiwitrace, thank you for sharing your kind review of Waldorf Stadium. We are thrilled to know how much you enjoyed your recent stay with us! We really are the best choice for accommodation when attending a concert at Vector Arena, if not for the super close location, then definitely for the separate bedrooms that allow for maximum privacy, even when sharing an apartment with family, friends or colleagues. Unfortunately we have no choice but to charge for parking, but are happy to know we have negotiated a great rate for our guests and are offering some of the cheapest parking in Auckland CBD compared with other hotels as well as public parking buildings. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip. Many thanks!

We enjoyed staying in this hotel. It is very conveniently located. The inner ring bus stops in front, and it is a short walk to the Pier and Queen Street. The apartment is quite large. The bed is comfortable. Wi-Fi works well. We had a couple of maintenance issues, which we could not get fixed, but they really did not affect our stay. Be aware these are apartments, and they only service them every three days.

Breakfast is quite good, although it is not included in the price.

G'day BillPom, thanks for your review of your recent stay at Waldorf Stadium. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and made the most of our great location and easy access to local attractions. Hopefully you reported the maintenance issues you mentioned, and we will have these attended to for our next guest. The serviced apartment concept is something that made its way to New Zealand due to being commonplace in Australia which was popular with travelling kiwi's for the self-contained nature of the accommodation. It also allows guests to keep their own hours when holidaying, rather than being at the mercy of housekeepers. We appreciate you taking the time to share your review and hope to welcome you back in the future.

Booked online through booking.com and on arrival had a free upgraded room on top floor. Could see parts of the harbour and only five minute walk to vector arena.

Great room very comfortable bed and reasonable priced for location. Great convenience store at rear of complex and countdown supermarket just round the corner. Private parking for 18 dollars a day which is cheap for auckland.

Will definitely stay at this complex again

We are also thrilled to hear you found our apartments well priced and comfortable. Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay, we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We stayed in this serviced apartment for three nights as the first leg for our NZ honeymoon. It is located within Auckland CBD area and all the convenience is within walking distance. We joined a few tours during the days that departed from the Harbour Terminal, which was about 15min walk.

The rooms were well equipped with all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. We found the washing machine and tumble drier especially useful.

Be careful if you are driving to this location though - parking is charged at NZD18/night which is an acceptable price, however we were just not made aware of such additional cost during the booking process.

Hi TL_HongKongTraveller, thank you for your review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your recent stay at Waldorf Stadium Apartment Hotel, especially for our convenient location. And congratulations on your recent Marriage! Most of downtown Aucklands major tourist attractions are within walking distance from our Beach Rd location, and those that aren't are easily accessed thanks to the bus stops directly outside of our building. Our laundry facilities are also another popular aspect of our apartments. Our research shows our parking is among the cheapest offered by hotels in the city, but must apologise that you were not made aware of the charge. When booking directly with Waldorf Reservations all such charges are clearly disclosed to guests, but sometimes online booking websites make these charges less obvious. If you can please contact our reservations team with your booking number we will look into where you made your booking and see that this oversight is overcome for our future guests, and hopefully your future visits.

I have spent recently 4 nights in “Oversized studio apartment” in the Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel. It was very spacious, featuring air-conditioner/heater, balcony, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, dining table, coffee table, a desk, sofa, a queen bed in the separate bedroom, bathroom with a shower. One TV in the living room, one in the bedroom. Kitchen section very well equipped, fridge plus freezer. Very elegant, very tastefully furnished. Very clean. Very convenient location – very close to the city centre with all tourist attractions. Supermarket just around the corner. I booked a “flexi rate” which included free wi-fi; speed was good. My studio faced the back of the hotel and was very quiet. The only problem was that early in the morning, there was some noise not from cars but from trucks which were taking goods from the commercial harbour which was just a block away. For me, it was not a big deal. I think, the quietest rooms would be on a high floor, facing back. If I come again to Auckland, I will definitely stay again in the Waldorf Apartments Hotel and I have already recommended it to my friends.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors, facing back would be quieter.

Hi JanaMK, thank you so much for your comprehensive review of your stay at Waldorf Stadium, we really think you nailed exactly what makes us stand out from other traditional hotels in the city, and we're glad you thoroughly enjoyed your 4 nights staying with us. Our building and furnishings are relatively new, but we still put a great deal of attention into keeping them at the highest standards which includes painting the apartments and re-furnishing them often. In regards to the truck noise, Auckland Council are currently constructing a cycle-way in front of our hotel which will see the re-routing of trucks going to and from the Ports past our hotel - replacing any disturbing noises with the gentle sound of bicycles whizzing past our hotel... a major bonus for our guests and the city of Auckland!

The good thing about this establishment was the location, central to everything in the CBD. Short walk to the viaduct and sky city casino. The staff were a little frazzled on our arrival, but were courteous later during the visit. We requested 3 bedrooms for 5 adults, however the layout was small and one bedroom was more like a small wardrobe than a room, the bed wasn't much better. However the rooms were tidy and pleasant. This complex is a 5 min walk to Victor Arena so if your planning a night's stay after a concert this could be your venue. Parking is not in the apartment building but close by so take this into account when thinking of luggage or children, as the walk once you get to the ground floor is outside and uncovered.

Hi broomys2, thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Waldorf Stadium. Please accept our apologies for your initial greeting, part of our customer service training teaches our front of house staff to remain cool & collected, even during busy or stressful periods , so we're sorry we dropped the ball in this instance and are glad to hear the rest of your experience with our staff were pleasant ones. Although we do have 3 bedroom apartments, a more suitable set-up for 5 adults is probably 1 x 1 Bedroom apartment and 1 x 2 Bedroom apartment which I will convey to my reservations team and hope you can consider that set-up if travelling to Auckland again with 5 adults. Thanks again for your review, we hope we can welcome you back sometime soon in a more relaxed manner.
