I had one night in Aukland on my way to the south island and stayed at this hotel. Great location -- was able to walk to the harbour and jump on the on/off tourist site seeing bus. My only "gotcha" was that they were not very service oriented (which I soon learned is the situation throughout all of NZ. I needed to ship something and they were able to direct me to a post that was open on Saturday. I did have an interesting situation that the maintenance man helped me solve. They give you the standard hotel keys which typically slide into a door slot to open the door. However, there was no door slot and my door was unlocked. I went to the front desk and explained my confusion and they looked at me like I had three heads. The maintenance guys was standing there and walked to my room with me -- to discover you have to wave your key in front of the door lock to activate the lock. Who would have thought??? But, my room was quiet, clean and the wakeup call was prompt.
