“Very comfortable and spacious rooms”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I stayed here for 1 week with my husband while he was in Auckland for training for his job. The hotel is very central and close to downtown, britomart and many eateries. The room was very spacious and comfortable, with everything you could possibly want for a week long stay including dishwasher , washing machine and dryer. I was a little surprised that the one bedroom apartments didn't have an electric blanket but I just grabbed the blanket out of the wardrobe and I was warm enough. I also found the bed was a little hard but got use to it after a few nights. Countdown is just around the corner from the hotel which is great to stock up on bits and pieces.

Room Tip: Very central location with rooms that are spacious, airy and modern.

Our unit is a 2 bed room unit with one bedroom facing a pub which is quite noisy until 2 am. Those with babies and light sleepers may want to consider alternative rooms or other hotels.

There was a blackout of more than 3 hours and hell break loose at the pub and the staff at the reception did not apologise for or awknowledge during checkout time which totally piss us off.

We will not choose this hotel again because a good night sleep is very important.

We had a two bedroom apartment. On the positive side, the bathroom was very clean, and it was great to have a washer/dryer, full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. Along with the usual coffee, tea, and milk, salt and pepper packets were provided. When we ran out of washing liquids, it was easy to get more from reception.

The location was good; a 24 hour supermarket was right around the corner, and there were a few restaurants in the immediate vicinity. It was an easy walk to Britomart and Queen St, and there's a bus stop in front of Waldorf Stadium. When we left for the airport, we were too early for the airport bus, but the hotel has an arrangement with a cab company, and we paid about 35-38 dollars (I can't remember the exact amount, but it was less than 40), which is great because taxis in NZ can be expensive.

On the other hand, reception was not very good at dealing with phone calls to our room. Our cell phone wasn't working (which was not the hotel's fault), so we had to rely on the hotel phone. Two people had to call us, and they both had a difficult time getting through to our room because whoever was manning the phone found it hard to find our booking and room number and put them through. One of the callers had to call twice before that person from Waldorf really checked and found our room number, which was a problem because she was calling from Singapore.

More importantly, the bedroom and bathroom could use a bit of tweaking. In one bedroom (the one with no window), both the light switch for the overhead light and the lamp on the desk were at the foot of the bed, so I could not read in bed, and I had to walk in the dark to turn the lights on and off. There was no rack or shelf in the shower stall. While there was a mounted dispenser for the liquid soap/shampoo that the hotel provided, since I preferred to use my own soap and shampoo, I had to place them on the floor. It will be very helpful if they add a light switch by the side of the bed and a small rack or shower caddy in the shower stall.

Stayed here with my family while having a vacation and this place is pretty decent especially for its price. We did book it through expedia, its very convienient as everything is close by and walkable. We booked a two bedroom with equipt kitchen and a decent bathroom. Were pleased that they cleaned our room each day and took all our rubbiah out. I would recommend for people to stay here. Downside would only be the wifi is expensive and the tv was small that didnt provide a usb input or hdmi.

We hab booked this apartment hotel via internet, we were a family of 2 couples, 1 teenager and 1 child. We had a 3 bedroom apartment and the third bedroom was very small, just the place for the single bed, and nothing to arrange clothes, but all the facilities in the room were for only 4 persons. We smelt a very bad odour ( like fish). The room was not so quiet ( near the road) and we found a used condom under one of the bed!!! We had to go to the reception, to ask for a vacuum cleaner as there is no vaccum cleaner in the room....There is a small place for continental breakfast only!!

Very modern rooms with all of the conveniences that you would expect. Were were given an upgrade from a one bedroom to a two bedroom apartment both times we stayed here so were very happy. The rooms we stayed in we're quite spacious.

The location is very convenient with supermarket, restaurants, bars and the CBD all within a short walk.

The kitchens are small but contain everything you could want and the full size washers and dryers are very handy. There are no rubbish chutes or rooms on each level so cleaning up requires a walk to the ground floor. Parking for pickup and drop off is also very limited as to what's available on the street because there is no driveway up to the lobby. Wifi is available but not cheap.

The service was quite good and I would happily recommend this venue for both business and leisure travel.

Room Tip: One of our two bedroom apartments was very good but the other appeared to have been a one bed + stud...

I have stayed in the hotel a number of times over the past few years usually when going to concerts at vector arena. I'm not sure if the place is under new management but it certainly was not up to the 4 plus star rating that it advertised or what I have experienced in the past. The room was what I expected but the condition was poor. Holes in the furniture and not that clean, soap dispensers in the shower and bathroom and one very small towel. This is what I expect in an airport cube hotel not a downtown Auckland hotel. The tv reception came and went depending on the wind and the kitchen seemed to have less utensils (no coffee plunger). These are advertised as serviced apartments yet house keeping now needs to be requested and this now consists of them lending you a vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes. The staff at reception were very polite but when it came to anything out of the box they were outside of their script and didn't know what to do. However they where very good at offing apologies. For me I will be looking for a new place to stay when next in Auckland
