This was our first hotel in New Zealand, it was good enough for the purpose of providing a place for us to shower and rest for the night. There was a small mini fridge, but no microwave. The bath room was a little small with a shower stall (no tub) which limited the space in the shower. Otherwise, everything else... More

We chose this hotel because we could go in front of the hotel by pick-up car from the airport. It was not so cheap, but it was useful because we arrived at night. Our room was clean and the staff prepared an extra bed. The original beds were extremely comfortable. The serves was impeccable and excellent. However, there weren't any... More

Stayed here for 4nights and was awed by the great service once we checked in. Nice, clean and simple layout but yet modern and well presented. Our room was overlooking AKLs busy streets but we didn't mind as it was only 5mins walk from everything & could even catch a glimpse of the sky tower. Couldn't fault our room either.... More

Hotel with reasonable size room, very competitive price and center to everything. A bit shabby bathroom and no water bottle supplied. But you have to compromise something for the cheaper rate!! Parking on the street can be difficult however Sunday is free all day.

Ok as a launching pad on your holiday as it is right in the city - quick 5 minutes into heart of Queen St. Basic room standard - windows quite noisy as they don't seem thick enough or well sealed. Good little Cafe called "fond ou" on site. Parking available but limited.

Reason room rates, not many car parks on offer though. Car park is a bit tight as well. Rooms are comfortable but windows rattle on windy and rainy days and not sealed well. Quaint little cafe just inside the foyer which serves great coffee and do a yummy egg and bacon muffin. Hotel is central to most of Auckland but... More

Me and my husband had stayed here foe 3 nights. Amazing service, close proximity to bus station, walking distance from sky tower. The hotel has staff from various parts of the world to cater to tourists coming in. This is a major plus point. Overall a very good experience.
