Would have liked to have given this hotel a good review, however, it turned out to be a disappointment.
We arrived in the early hours of the morning and were directed to our room. Unable to evaluate at that time, or we would have asked for another room. The bathroom trash can was full and as we found out the next morning the room looked out on a concrete wall and the windows of the building opposite. There are no sheers at the windows, so one either accepts that you are on display, or the curtains need to be pulled (the room already felt claustrophobic). The trash room on the ground floor was a smelly mess.
There is only one elevator in the building we were in and the folks waiting for it the next morning gave up and took to the stairs (us included, luckily we were not checking out and therefore did not have luggage to contend with)
The apartment itself was well equipped and the hotel is centrally located, however, if we ever return to Auckland I believe we will look for an alternative hotel. The apartment concept is a great one for a family traveling together and there is a very good supermarket in the vicinity.
