We have been staying here for a week and it is just brilliant. The apartment may not be huge but is perfectly appointed and comfortably decorated. We have travelled a lot and this is one of the nicest apartments we have stayed in. We are on the 20th floor and have stunning views over the harbour where we can see... More

We were there for about a week and found almost everything in the room to be dated and uncomfortable. from the sofa feeling like it had been there for 10 years to the TV not working properly to the fridge/freezer not freezing. The spa didn't bubble and the rooms were noisy. Every time we tried to complain we got the... More

As someone who likes to crash on the bed and watch the news when I've had a day of meetings this hotel was a little frustrating. No TV in the bedroom and the TV in the 'lounge' area wasn't positioned for comfortable viewing. Was also a little miffed that the curtains didn't close fully so didn't block out the light... More

Needed somewhere central for mid week night, this was perfect. Check in easy, not hard to find! Bed a bit soft was only criticism. Easy walk to Queen St, and plenty of restaurants/bars handy. Parking cheap, and easy to access. Will use again!

The Metropolis is fantastic, for a building that is about 20 years old, it still exudes quality, the fit out has been done in timeless quality materials. The location is perfect, food venues everywhere at the door step. The views if you get a high level room are excellent, it was lovely waking to a view of the Auckland harbour.

Metropolis residences is a serviced property with reception and gym (pool is being reconstructed at the moment) in the heart of the Auckland city centre, a few steps from Queen street- the main shopping street of the city, a few steps from ferries to near islands and a few steps to main attraction of the city centre- the Sky Tower....

We got a room on the 29th floor and it had a great view of the Sky Tower, Albert Park, Auckland Domain and museum from the balcony. A short walk to bars/restaurants. Clean and comfortable - bed was great (and I have a bad back so that's saying something). We were only there for a night but it would be... More

5 star Deluxe suite only on top floors maybe with a view. That's what they advertise. I'm on the 11th floor (out of 36), the view is mostly of a construction site, the gym and pool are out of service and it's in bad need of a renovation to be considered even 4 stars. It's in a great location, that's... More

Overrated! Might suit some of you well, but I wouldn't go again. Negatives • Confusing reception location - Kitchener St entrance looks like a grand entry for a 5 star hotel, with reception etc, but this is not the hotel reception! The hotel reception is located in a dingy little office on Courthouse Lane, not in the hotel building itself... More
