Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel

Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a great place to stay, especially if you're a family. Pretty good location although there are some strip joints nearby so the neighborhood can be a little rough. But the apartments are secure. If you have a car they will accommodate for parking.

Staying at the Waldorf Stadium apartments was like being at home away from home. The 2 bedroom apartments are spacious and comfortable with a full kitchen. We loved the convenience of having the Countdown grocery around the corner and bunch of pubs, cafes, and restaurants within walking distance. I'm also a fan of Body Step/Body Pump classes, so it was pretty cool to be near a Les Mills gym. There was a music awards show at Vector arena when we stayed so the area was pretty busy, but it wasn't too noisy and we still had a restful sleep.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (room 817) for a week with our two kids. The rooms were excellent. The kids' room was big enough for us to have their 2 portacots as well as the single beds, with still enough room for us to get around in the room.

The living area was fantastic and well laid out. There was enough space for the kids to play without causing too much chaos. The kitchen allowed us to self-cater for a number of meals, which meant that we did not have to go out for every meal.

We organised for parking as well, which was at the Vector Arena carpark. It was very close (a 2 minute walk from the hotel to your car) and made things very easy when trying to wrangle 2 kids and their associated material.

The only downside that we experienced was that the road outside the hotel (Beach Road) seemed to get a lot of truck noise during the day. If you closed the sliding door to the balconey, it virtually eliminated this issue, but occasionally it was nice to have the door open to get some of the breeze. Otherwise, the location was great, and there was very little noise overnight.

A minor inconvenience for us (which will not affect many others) was that the hotel charged us a daily rate for the use of the portacots (the other places we stayed charged us a flat rate of either $20 or $25 per cot for the duration of our stay). Given the length of our stay, it would have worked out cheaper for us to have bought 2 portacots when we arrived and left them at the end.

There is a 24 hour supermarket a 3 minute walk away, and the CBD area is a gentle 15 minute walk.

Really impressed with this apartment hotel. It was in a great location, we requested a quiet room which is at the back of the hotel and as we were on the top floor even had a glimpse of the harbour albeit a better view of other apartments and a high rise car park but that didn't worry me cause it was so quiet I slept better than I usually do when travelling. To our surprise we also had a full view of fireworks in Devonport on New Years Eve. All the reviews about this place are pretty spot on re facilities, location and the surrounding area. The only small let down I would add is that they should check the oven when servicing the rooms between guests as we were going to make toasties under the grill one night but the rack had so much crap on it from previous use that I made the toasties in the frying pan. Also the info in the hotel room info compendium is not entirely accurate as it states the Waldorf lounge was open all day for coffee and tea and free wifi but its only open for breakfast. Nonetheless I would happily stay here again if in Auckland and I am pretty fussy as is my 17 yr old daughter who was in heaven having her own room!

Dear MTHsydney,

Thank you for review on The Waldorf Stadium apartments Hotel.
I am delighted that your family had a great stay with us during the New Year and enjoyed our perfect location.

We strive for excellence in all areas but I am disappointed that you could not enjoy making toasties in the grill. I have ensured to pass on your feedback to our Housekeeping Team. We have recently changed the Waldorf Lounge hours and the compendiums are currently being updated.

I do hope that you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to welcoming you back on your future travels.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two nights just before Christmas. Our reason for being in Auckland at the time was to attend a concert at the Vector Arena. We chose this hotel due to its close location to the Vector. It was also close to the centre of Auckland. The apartment was fine and we'd stay there again. The wifi service wasn't free which is a bit of a pain but at a cost of about $10 a day this isn't a huge gripe.

The real purpose of this review is to thank the staff for so promptly posting some shoes I left behind and ugently needed before Christmas in Christchurch where we were then staying. A HUGE THANK YOU to those concerned and a happy New Year to all.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom for 4 nights, nice hotel, staff friendly, location great. Second bedroom was a bit weird was more like an office and had a glass sliding door this wasn't an issue as had a small child staying in it but for another adult couple it wouldn't be ideal. Room was clean and tidy and overall would recommend and would stay again.

Dear Coochtrinz,

Thank you for taking time to review The Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel on Trip advisor.

My team and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. I understand that in our standard two bedroom apartments the second bedroom has a sliding glass door which is liked by a lot of our guests for its contemporary design, but we do have a variety of other two bedroom units with different configuration which you must stay in the next time you in Auckland.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
