Where to Stay in Auckland

My family of 5 will be staying in Auckland mid-December. Any advice on where to stay? Ages of kids are 17-22. Also, any advice for trip most welcome. Just beginning the planning stages. Have read many ideas so far which are GREAT.

1. Re: Where to Stay in Auckland

Hi

Your question seemed simple but has generated many questions in my mind!

Do you prefer to stay in hotels or would you consider an apartment? How many bedrooms do you need? How many nights in Auckland? And how many elsewhere in New Zealand?

I have some ideas but perhaps best to refine dependent upon your needs. Off the top of my head the age of your 'kids' suggests a central location perhaps, next to the water, so they can go off and do their thing. Or perhaps Ponsonby.

How do you like to spend your time? Does this vary between members in the family?

Questions. Questions. :-)
