We stayed for four nights, two in a studio queen and two in a business king. Hotel front desk was very efficient and friendly. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast buffet looked good, but we did not try it. Location is hard to beat. Both rooms were small (we had trouble walking around with our suitcases out) but managed ok....

Stayed here for two nights in early February. I had previously stayed about 4 years ago in the same type of room (for less than half the price) but that is Auckland these days! The room was clean, but as expected very small, room for one person to move around the bed and that’s about it. The location is great...

This location can't be beat - just a block from Sky Towers and walking distance to the harbour. There are ample restaurants nearby. We stayed in a Queen room for 2 nights and the room was small, but clean.....for my husband and I, it was worth the trade-off for the location/price. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Should be...

We received a warm and friendly welcome when we arrived here. The breakfast was very good and well priced. We had booked the compact double rooms and they were really very small. If larger rooms had been available we would have changed to them. Based on our experience this hotel is good for a few nights but we definitely would...

This hotel has an excellent location, in the heart of the city center, with all facilities close by. The room we stayed in was very small and clean. It does not have air conditioning, but it was offered in the room, a fan. For one night, ok, since it does not offer space for larger luggage.

The price for the rooms were really great, however, the bed was just too small and so springy that we always had a fear of falling over... for the two of us friends we had requested a twin sharing but they gave a double bed, apparently they had no twin bed empty (despite us booking way early) and next day...

Staff was very friendly, and let us in our room at 7:30 AM without extra charge. The room (as all other rooms we saw in the corridors) was extremely small. We could not open our suitcase. No AC, no fridge. Room design was really poor. Shelves were filled up with a fan, a heather, an air dryer and an iron....

My partner and I stayed at the hotel for one night only, from 7th to 8th February. I've made the booking through online and when I was at the counter they told me that it was not on the system and so, I had to make a another booking manually. On the same night, I got an email from booking.com...

I stayed in this hotel for four nights. This hotel is situated in the center of the Auckland city. Sky Tower is five hundred meters from this hotel. Queen’s Street is two minutes away which ultimately goes to Britomart Rail Station. Or in other words it is 0.6 km from Britomart Station. There is International Food Court available adjacent to...

Great location! . Stayed for a concert @ Vector area. 15 - 20 minute walk. Rooms are very small. Bit noisy at night. Great staff. Very helpful and friendly. Was ok for an overnight stay and handy walk to everything you need.
