“Great location and sparkling clean room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2011

The apartments are really well located, a few minutes' walk from the main Queen St but much quieter. I had a studio apartment which was very comfortable and so sparkling clean that it looks brand new. The owners were really helpful and remembered my name after I met them on the first morning, which makes you feel very welcome.
The studio apartment isn't really set up for lounging around in, no couch or armchairs, so if you plan to spend a lot of time at the hotel then a bigger apartment might work better, but the studio is a good budget option if you're planning to be out most of the day.

Another thing to be aware of - their reception closes around 5 or 6pm so if you're arriving late, make sure you call to get a code to let you in. They may provide this code by email if you book directly through them, but I booked through Hotels.com and didn't get any notification that I'd need a code. I just called them after reading one of the other reviews here. They do provide an on-site number to call, but that could be tricky if you don't have a mobile phone that works in NZ.

Thanks for your recent review of Waldorf Tetra.

Our studio apartments are indeed brand new and we are glad that you found them to be comfortable. You are correct in saying that they are geared more for the nightly stay rather than longer term, simply due to the space restrictions. There are larger 1- and 2-bedroom apartments available for longer stays!

Thanks for your comments regarding the limited reception times. We have endeavoured to inform all of our website affiliates of this and do attempt to either capture an estimated arrival time on booking or contact the guest to determine this prior to arrival. However, some websites do not provide contact details for guests. If in doubt, the best course of action is to contact our reservations team by email and they can advise whether a keysafe entry will be required.

We hope you will return to the Waldorf soon!

A very pleasant location, just off the main drag. Units can accommodate a family of 4-5.
Comfy & spacious apartments with all mod cons. Separate living area & kitchen with 2 bathrooms. Auckland is very steep, so any walking will involve a climb up to get home.

The only question I have is why the complex is called "budget"!!! I stayed in few Auckland "4 star" accommodation eg Bianco in the past which are not as good and qulaity as Tetra "budget" apartments!!. I stayed in a newly built/refurbished ,modern studio apartment with A/C, nice kitchen ( there is a communal laundry in the complex) for a week for a bargain rate of abour $70 per night ( maybe that why they calls it budget). Very secured and well managed complex with great on site staff that went all the way to assist me. Good & cheap internet service- only $15 per week!. The full breakfast in the cafe was good and chaep- less than $10. Great value and quality in Auckland not to mention the greal centrall location!!!

Thank you for your recent review of Waldorf Tetra.

We are pleased that you found the apartment quality, facilities and services to be of good quality for the price paid.

Tetra is classed as budget mainly due to the limited reception service hours so we are naturally pleased that you would rate it higher than some city centre competitors who are of higher star rating!

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We have a modern Studio hotel apartment on the ground floor of Tetra Budget serviced apartments.The apartment was small but with good design, very modern ,clean and quite suitable for a couple.It has A/C, haeting and the kitchen is fine for 2 persons stay,We loved the location as it was only 4-6 minutes walk to Queen Street main area. The on site coffee shop provides reasonably priced meal and there are quite a lot of othe coffee sops & restaurants within minutes away. The daily rate (NZ$100) was good and the internet high speed service good A& cheap

We have stayed in Waldorf Tera Serviced apartments for 2 weeks for a course in AUT.
The location was great just 2 minutes walk from Uni and 5 minutes to Queen Street and other local attractions.Modern,clean, 1 bedroom apartment with 2 bathroom, safe complex with good onsite management. Very good value in a very good location!

We were to stay for 5 months but we vacated not even completing 2 weeks. we had paid 2 weeks of rent in advance 3 days for rent since they would not refund.

As soon as we entered apartment, I and my hubby had to clean every nook and corner
for 2 hours. we stayed in 413. the kitchen is very very small. if you are staying for long term, please dont go there. We are now in Waldorf St Martins, for same price we have got 2 times bigger, clean, spacious, a balcony.

to start with we got some black stains on the floor of kitchen and bathroom. almost all utensils were greasy and had food stuck on it. wonder had they really got them cleaned. the cushion was torn. the fridge of smelling and had stains all over it. the carpet was so greasy that we both never walked on it barefooted. we had to always wear slippers(pathetic). curtains were stained by some spill. the sofa looked dirty. the apartment had stink of cigarette and cigarette buds on window pane. (i have attached photo unfortunately i only have this photo)

worst of all, there is ICONZ office beside apartment, you hear generator sound all the day and night. its summer here, if windows are kept open, the sound the is so high that you can hardly sleep. if window is closed, there is no air to breathe.

they show you a different apartment than what they would lend you. which happened in our case.

at the end of your stay, they collect money for replacing bulbs and get a professional cleaning of apartment. however, 3 bulbs were not working when we checked in and as said apartment was not at all clean. many cutlery items are broken and hardly any cooking spoons or utensils.

when we were vacating, the manager there asked us to clean the apartment before leaving. that was rude becoz when we came in, we cleaned and they were even taking money from us to get cleaned. then, why should we clean before leaving since it was not when we checked in there.

we did not get any proper response to our complaints. they did not bother to act on whatever we said. they were rude.

Please check for other options before going there. we are now staying in Waldorf St martins, 3 min away from Waldorf tetra. it is spacious, for same rate as waldorf tetra, with a swimming pool, gym, cafe, calm, clean, bright.
