Perfect location. However I was surprised that the window shutters didn't close properly so light was showing through at night. The shower was cold in the morning and there was no mention of this on arrival. I was happy that I could check in early though.

This place is good if you're just looking for something basic. Although the staff were friendly, it was often hard to get hold of them - I was waiting outside to check in for 5 minutes before anyone even picked up the phone. The room was clean, but the tv didn't work - the guy from reception came up and... More

I didn't expect 5-stars as the truth is it's very affordable for a few nights in Auckland. I still take offence to photos they supply as they are completely photoshopped- completely dark, damp and dingy rooms (very different to bright windows in their photos). Not particularly clean with crumbs still around the kitchen and corners of the room. The "free... More

After over a year, I am very satisfied with the living conditions and I recommend this place highly. Reliable and helpful building manager. Location can't be beaten. Privacy and reliable lifts. Option of room service available and Internet to purchase. Clean and well maintained. 👍🏽

I was here for a quick weekend away and just needed a place to rest my head while I visited the sites, sounds, friends and family so got a studio. The location - very handy, The check in process - unorthodox yet quick and efficient. The room - clean and equipped with EVERYTHING needed especially for a studio. The view... More

Glad I hadn't read reviews before booking as I might have been put off. We were told check-in time was 3 pm so when we arrived at noon we were expecting to just leave our bags and come back later. No, our room was ready and we were given the key. Office staff very helpful. Our room was on 10th... More

Location is the main thing here as you are really in the center of auckland staying here. The apartment itself is basic but still got all you need. A good budget alternative to all hotels witch when we visited was quite pricy.

My room was dirty (mould in bathroom, terrible smell / material in the dish drawer) and poorly maintained (ripped carpet, shabby furnishings) on arrival. I cancelled my booking and left. I would not recommend this accommodation - it didn't meet basic standards.

Unless you are a backpacker with no money do not stay here. The pace is poorly up kept, dingy and disgusting. My room had rubbish from previous guests, towels were threadbare and torn. Paint peeling, carpet ripped. It was noisy. Bed small and uncomfortable. I checked out and went and stayed elsewhere. I would never stay here or recommend to... More
