We were supposed to go directly to Christchurch, but the earthquake forced us to stay in Auckland the fist night of our month-long vacation. Our travel agent suggested this hotel until she could figure out something more suitable for us. The hotel itself was very ordinary and a touch outdated, but it was clean and the staff was great. Since we'd been traveling for 18 hours, they put a rush on our room so we could get checked in at 11AM. The housekeepers were friendly and the front desk clerk even gave me a code for an hour of free internet usage. The hotel has a good location in the city center, only 2 blocks from the harbor and the Britomart train station. There is a 24-hour cafe with Wifi across the street, which was very handy since my husband and I both needed to be working starting at 3AM the next morning. (Internet usage is very expensive in Auckland hotels). There are tons of shops and cafes within blocks of the hotel. I recommend Vulcan street for cafes, which intersects with Queen street.
