“Fantastic Stay as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

This is the second time that we have stayed here and yet another fantastic stay. With their great location in central Auckland, the Waldorf Celestion is with-in walking distance of all the major attractions and transport you would need. We have an amazing apartment/unit on the top floor which was well appointed, clean and tidy. The large balcony meant that we could relax and take the awesome views of the port and harbour. We found the staff friendly and accommodating, Zee was very friendly on check in and was more than helpful in giving us great directions to find the parking building. We just had a overall fantastic stay and could not of asked more! Thanks guys!!

I have stayed here twice a year for business since it opened under the Waldorf banner. It is particularly well located for me, being about 200m from Short Street. The back of the building looks onto Emily St, which is extremely quiet. It costs much less than most 4 or 5 star hotels, and the accommodation is far better. I don't use the kitchen facilities, except for breakfast. There are many good restaurants within about 300m. The value proposition is excellent.

Great room for the price, central location and spacious. Was upgraded from 1 bedroom to 2 bedroom without requesting. Handy to Britomart with great shops and range of good eateries. Two blocks from Countdown but never got around to using the well equipped kitchen.

I stayed at Celestion for over 2 months. The staff was mostly cooperative and courteous and the stay was comfortable. The hotel is located close to all the happening places in CBD area and supermarkets. The hotel doesn't offer satellite television channels even if you are ready to pay extra. One more thing that needs consideration is to have unlimited internet packaged into the room rent for corporate travelers.

Was very very pleased with the hotel & our room, was very trendy & modern & the staff were so friendly & helpful in every way, car park super close by & very close walking distance to supermarkets, & Mcdonalds, kfc etc with a little bit further round to queen st, but all close enough to walk.
Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone & will be staying here again if ever travelling to Auckland.

Stayed here on my last night before leaving Auckland for home and slightly regretted staying at the sister hotel at St Martins on my 1st 2 nights in Auckland. This hotels location and room layout is much better! BUT we did not know so lesson learned :)

I would stay back in this hotel again when I am back to Auckland and would recommend this hotel to anyone who asks as well. Layout of room was good and kitchen and bathroom amenities are fully equipped. Great location to city centre, Britromart, eateries, supermarkets and the harbour as well.

The pretty french reception was also super friendly and she pointed out her favourite eating spots as other recommendations as well. Very professional and friendly service as well. Great job guys!!
