“Clean and private apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2008

I had a studio apartment which was clean and a very good size, with full kitchen facilities including a cooker and a washing machine. The room was extremely quiet at night. The block is managed from an office on the second floor. There's no reception so you have a good degree of privacy. There was a full range of satellite channels on the TV. Those with mobility problems could have difficulties, however, as the building is at the top of an extremely steep hill.

  • Liked — Good sized apartment with excellent in room facilities
  • Disliked — It's at the top of a very steep hill

Great Value and Great Location. Basic accomodation that is very clean and functional. Clair the manager is exceedingly helpful and accomodating. We arrived from a Cruise Ship early in the am and there was no problem in storing of luggage ect. The same on departure.

This is an apartment complex and not a hotel but it is very confortable and great value

  • Liked — Price, location and great staff
  • Disliked — It is an apartment complex somewhat of a industrial type not a hotel

We loved our stay here. It is a wonderful condo right in the heart of city center. It was spotless when we arrived and we really appreciated our early 7AM check - in . Especially after a gruelling 12 hour flight!!.
There is even a washer and dryer in the unit! We stayed two weeks and have only good things to say.

A fantastic apartment, with all you could need. Very close to Queen St and other attractions. We were on the top floor with fantastic views of the harbour, surrounding islands and Sky City Tower. The staff were very helpful, I even stayed an extra night and they only charged me the rate I had paid through wotif. The apartment looks exactly like those in the pictures, so you really know what your getting! I will be staying there again soon!

Excellent new apartments. 5 minutes walk from Queen Street and convenient for all Auckland atractions. The apartments are compact, with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. I would highly recommend these apartments, will definitely return.

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of April. Overall we were happy with the room/hotel.

The room was very modern, had lots of storage and had good facilities including a well equiped kitchen with microwave, oven, hotplates, dishwasher, fridge, toaster, kettle and sink. All stainless steel and very cleverly organised. The room also had a private bathroom with shower and heated towel rack. The room is air conditioned/heated and also has Pay TV. There was also a small balcony which offered us great views of the Skytower - looked awesome at night when illuminated blue! (see photo)

The manager of the hotel was really friendly and easy going and the security at the hotel is great. There is no parking at the hotel but there is a parking lot (pay) directly across the road and lots of street parking close by.

The hotel is in a great location. A 5 minute to Queen street (central street with most of the shops) and 10 minutes to the Harbour/ferry terminal. The only thing we didnt like was walking back from Queen Street as it includes a steep and long hill which totally wore us out, but the whole of Auckland is hilly so its not suprising and im sure most hotels would also involve a hill like this.

I would recommend this hotel to people who are basing their trip around activities in the city or activities departing from the city and who like to be able to cook their own meals rather than having to eat out every meal.

Overall the room was excellent, location was excellent except for the hill and the managment was friendly and helpful. Great!

We arrrive to Auckland for 5 nights and enjoyed staying at Bankside apartments-Great location, fully equipped modern apartments with high speed internet for almost half the cost of our previous Auckland stay in an hotel.

Highly recomended. If you need a car space reserve it in advance!!
