Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel

Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is great alternative to a hotel. You get more room to move around and can make your own breakfast, even dinner if you're motivated. As it's a serviced apartment you have to remember it doesn't get serviced everyday, but that's not really a problem if you know. This is a great place to stay if you're going to be in Auckland for a couple of days. As everyone else has said it is a great location close to the centre of town.

The apt was in a very handy location, walking distance to central station, Downtown and the water front of Auckland City .so it is really very central Auckland location!the apartment ( 1 bedroom with a study) was clean, comfortable and great for a short time stay. Very secured location and very good value for money for that location and quality. Nice breakfast.Would choose it again for a trip to Sydney.

Have stayed here twice before but this was probably the last time.
We came for the Beyonce concert and had a 2 night stay in a 2 bedroom apartment ($947NZD total). The location is the best if going to the the Vector for a concert, and the rooms are nice, modern and tidy. Even the hallways are well-kept (not always common in even 5-star hotels). But service is the worst. We experienced:
-Three instances where staff used their keys to walk into our room unannounced
-Only having four towels supplied for four people for a 2-night (3-day) stay
-Having to call twice for towels after waiting over an hour after the first call
-Being asked if we could come down to pick-up the towels from reception
-Finding out rooms are serviced only every 3 days (not cool when we paid so much money and we were running out of towels and toilet paper - have had way better at way cheaper)
-Unfriendly staff
-Having to lug our own bags to the check-in closet
Non-service gripes included:
-Bad reception on the TV
-Noisy outside
Don't stay here if you value your customer service

Thank you for recent review on The Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel.

Firstly thank you for your positive feedback on our great location and the apartments. I was disappointed about your experience and will be letting the teams know of your feedback which will be used as a training tool.

I must admit that because we got such a good rate( $NZ159) for a 2 bedroom . city centre apartment we were a bit worried before we arrived . Our worries disappeared as soon as we walked through the door.The apartment was fabulous - modern, clean,a good size and very well equipped. We were not far from Auckland water front area and a large selection of restaurants and these apartments made a great base for our 3 night stay and exceeded our expectations.

I stayed here for 1night close to Vector Arena for Beyoncé concert, executive suite great location. The rooms are great for single or groups and have everything you need, however they could have better front reception services on checkout due to only 1 person on in the morning. Three groups trying to checkout and 1 person checking holding up those who had flights too go and catch. Still wouldn't stop me staying here again though

Thank you for reviewing the Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us in the Executive Suite and enjoyed the close proximity to Vector Arena.

We understand the inconvenience caused as there was only one staff member and can assure you that we would definitely look into having more front desk staff for smooth and fast check out’s.

Hotel has everything we needed, 2 min walk to Vector Arena, 2 min walk from Countdown supermarket, 2 min walk to Queen Street. Parking was accommodated by the hotel. Swimming pool very small. The apartment rooms were spacious and very tidy, kids totally loved the TVs in the rooms and the availability of sky channels. Great to have a kitchen to cook little meals and washing machine and dryer. The staff were great to deal with and very friendly. Yum Char around the corner was also a highlight. Pity our rooms didn't have a view of the main road, though will request for next time. Rooms were only serviced if the stay was more than 3 nights I think, we were there only 2 nights, needed a vacumn and clean, though could go and grab a vacumn if needed. I thought the price of the accommodation was very reasonably for the location. Highly reccommended! I booked for two apartments, though one had more luxury items than the other, would have been nice to receive the same sort of luxuries as the same price was paid.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony though to avoid noise of traffic choose a room located south side, I would...

Dear Plauvi,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Waldorf Stadium apartments Hotel and for posting your feedback.

I am delighted that you and the kids enjoyed your recent stay during the Beyoncé concert. We do have a great location especially if you are coming up to vector arena and will certainly pass your feedback about the amenities in the apartments. One of the two apartments that were booked was given a complimentary upgrade to our Executive Apartments, hence the variation in the amenities.

Please do mail me about your future stays and any room preferences. We look forward to welcoming you back again and try our Executive apartments.

We stayed here on the 28th September and then again on the 10th October. We found the Waldorf Stadium fantastic. It was in a good location, about 5 mins walk to main street. It also Had Countdown supermarket a few hundred metres away, which was great. The staff were very accommodating. On our return visit after spending 11 nights in a motorhome we were able to check in early. I also requested a later check-out which was also given to us with no problem. The room was great (2 bedroom) large in size. kitchen area, bathroom with washer and dryer. We loved it and would recommend this place without hesitation.
