5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2010

I ahve stayed with my partner in a large,modern 2 bedroom apartment in Waldorf St Martins Hotel. The apartment was nicely furnished with good kitchen,laundry, nice balcony with view and very good high speed internet service. The complex has great Gym ,pool and 24 hours reception. We had free breakfast for 2 included. Very good rate for very good quality!

Stayed for 24nights of my business trip to N.Z. Very impressed, much nicer inside than I EXPECTED I think we may have been upgraded, but we had a very smart, spacious 2 bedroom apartment suite with every amenity we could have wished for.We had a flatscreen T.V., SKYTV,washing machine and drier, dishwasher and very smart furnishings. views are Great For a city apartment, couldn't be bettered,. particularly for the price which we booked direct and the various additional free facilities such as free usage of Gym,pool and very good internet service.

My family and I stayed in a 2 bed apartment at the Waldorf St Martins (one of a group of Waldorf hotels in Auckland) for 5 weeks in September / October 2009 while looking for a place to rent after having emigrated to New Zealand.
The staff were very helpful and attentive and the rooms were cleaned and restocked regularly.
Although a lack of double glazing (common in New Zealand) made the rooms chilly, noisy and caused a lot of condensation in the morning, the apartment was modern, clean and comfortable and with all mod cons. Car parking was scary as it was like going down a 45 degree very narrow helter skelter to three underground floors. I couldn't find the outdoor swimming pool until I realized it was this extremely narrow and short tank which was totally unsuitable for swimming.
The main let down was actually not being able to trust the higher management that oversees the whole of the Auckland Waldorf group. My extended stay accomodation bill was 50% higher than I had agreed, with a whole host of different reasons being given from different managers. My advice would be to beware, don’t rely on contracts and be prepared to argue.

I stayed in this apartment hotel over Easter weekend. First note--New Zealand completely shuts down on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Monday. Auckland was a graveyard. Nevertheless, I had a good stay at this hotel. The apartment is nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. My biggest compaint was with the washer/dryer. The wash cycle was fine, but it never moved into dry mode. After 4 hours of wash cycle, I finally turned it off and air-dryed my clothes. The front desk was useless, saying that there is really nothing that can be done. Huh? So if you don't need to wash and dry clothes, this is a great place to stay. Parking is $15/night.

We stayed here our first night in New Zealand, and were happy with the location near the centre of Auckland. We got an upgrade to a two bedroom apartment, so we could choose the sleeping room :-) The apartment was very vlean, and quite cosy. Even if an apartment is less personal, this complex isn't a bad choice !
