“A lovely end to our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2011

Stayed for a few days at the end of our NZ trip. What a great place, fantastic location and a great price. Really spacious accommodation witha balonies. Great location, being near to everything. The restaurent in the building serves delious food too. Definitely recommend. A small point worth mentioning we had hired a car for the month we were in NZ from Apex and their office is literally around the corner, very convienent as we didn't want our car once we were in Auckland so it was really easy to drop it off.

I was delighted when we checked in here, the service at reception, the room and general ambiance of these apartments far exceed my expectations. We had a two bed/ one bathroom apartment. The rooms were clean, large enough and very modern. The location is good, walking distance to a supermarket and the city. There is a guest laundry, a great Indian restaurant downstairs and the hotel can arrange parking at around $30 a night. One word of warning though, our car was broken into in the carpark the hotel organised, the Wilson carpark on Anzac. It is better for the hotel to book you into the carpark in Vector Arena, two minutes further to walk but safer for your car.

Beautiful, modern rooms. Nicely equipped kitchen and good bathroom. Very comfortable bed, good TV. We had booked a one-bedroom, but were put into a two-bedroom, so lots of room. Bit of a walk to downtown, but interesting. We walked with luggage and golf clubs to the train station: no problem. Countdown supermarket within easy walk. This was our first hotel in New Zealand and it was perfect for getting over the jet lag.

Stayed here for two nights prior to joing our cruise. Booked a one bedroomed executive apartment. Very pleased with it as everything seemed brand new and very spacious. There was no information booke in the apartment showing how safe, microwave and dishwasher worked but reception quickly provided one when asked. Perhaps they could leave one in each room. Used Laundry room which was very efficient and cheap. Unlike other reviewers we found the reception staff very helpful. Security aspect to get to your room was very good and felt safe at all times. You could use swimming pool etc at Waldorf aprtments over the road but alas we did not have time. There was a very good supermarket about 5mins away which was very useful. Even though we only stayed two nights we had our room serviced at no extra cost. Would definately stay here again.

Great accommodation concept I wish we had it in the UK .We have arrived from
the airport at midnight and were able to sign a 3 month lease within 30
minutes for a lovely fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment in Waldorf
Celestion. We had in the apartment all the required equipment, telephone,Pay
Tv & internet so we could start the next day our contract- very good value
and very efficient on site management

We arrived on New Years eve at this hotel. Check in was quick and efficient. Receptionist was very friendly and directed us to the best places in town to view the New Year's eves fireworks. Apartment was much bigger than expected. One enormous king and one queen size double bed with very comfortable matresses. Although it we stayed here around New Year, it was very quiet. Apartment was c;ean and had excellent kitchen in which we were able to prepare our meals. As this is an apartment hotel, rooms were not serviced each day, although you may be able to request this. If you run out of something you just have to ask reception which keeps a supply. The hotel has an excellent location and the walk into town was not far. A little note make sure when you take a taxi or book a tour to be picked up at the hotel, that you mention Celestion Waldorf Apartments, as there are several Waldorf apartment buildings around the centre of Auckland!
