Nothing but praise for CityLife! I traveled to New Zealand from California for the first time and started out knowing nothing. My needs were to be at an upscale property, close to the Central Business District & Univ. of Auckland, and fast reliable WiFi so that I could be in contact with my office while travelling. In researching locations I... More

Fabulous, friendly service as a returning guest. The rooms are generously sized (could swing my cat - lol), very comfortable, with a very practical and usable kitchen. We loved the view, enjoyed the breakfast and the easy accessibility to Queen St. Lovely large bed, clear and easy to use TV with good channel/film choices and just the right amount of... More

I was greeted by pleasant front of house staff, my room was clean and tidy and well appointed. The bed was very Comfortable. The only thing that I would like to ask for, is a larger cup for my tea or coffee.

What a gem! We were warmly welcomed into this hotel. The valet parking was worth every cent. Close to the Viaduct and Princes Wharf and right in the centre of Queen St. The room was massive and exceeded expectations. The staff were very helpful and accommodating with a late check-out. Highly recommended!

Slightly difficult to find Reception by car but friendly efficient staff on arrival with valet parking. Room was a suite but very noisy from revellers in the street. This may be only a Saturday night problem.

We were on a month long tour and stayed in many hotels. We really enjoyed this one! It had a very convenient charging station for all our electronics. Good shelf space for unpacking. The bed was comfy. Best of all was the bathroom - great shower, heated towel rack and lovely products. The breakfast buffet was amazing with items we... More

City Life was a very good place to stay in Auckland Central. Excellent staff, very comfortable room, and the restaurant was pretty good. Great location, handy to everything but still quiet even though right in the middle of the CBD. I would not recommend it for people with kids, but great for everyone else.

Apart from the location you have to be impressed with the nothing is too much bother attitude of the staff. They do the small things right as well. Good size refrigerator, washing machine and dryer, cooking bench top, plunger coffee. We will certainly come back here again.

The City Life was a very good option for my one night stay in Auckland. The room had all the amenities i required, was clean and comfortable. Some additional touches I appreciated such as green tea and plunger coffee provided for free use. Some small items didn't work - the heated towel rail, for example. Overall, minor faults did not...
