I stayed here for a work trip - it's not close to the CBD but it was fine for me as I needed to visit the university and elsewhere on the North Shore and access to the motorways was handy. You do need a car if doing business. Don't expect a view - the apartments face another building. If you are self catering, there is a Countdown supermarket about 15-20 minutes walk away as you head towards Vector Arena. Otherwise there is a whole string of restaurants in Parnell about 1km away, plus a cafe on the ground level of the apartment block.
I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. The kitchen area was tight and a lot of cupboards were up high. The kitchen was fairly well stocked with kitchen utensils and pots and pans. There is a microwave, full sized fridge, hot plates but no oven.There was a tiny two seater lounge and the TV was positioned in a tight corner at an angle. A sliding door separates the lounge/kitchen from the bedroom. Bathroom was OK, water pressure was reasonable. Garbage/recycling was replaced on a daily basis, but the room itself wasn't serviced.
Internet charge was a rip off, but I managed to get unlimited access because of the nature of the work I was doing.
Car parking was NZ$10 a night in a secure car park - actually part of a public car park.
I would stay here again even though it is a little out of the way, but I prefer no city traffic noise.
