“Quiet, convenient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

This place is right in the center of where we wanted to be -- about mid way between the museum and the art gallery -- and unbeleivably quiet. To look at a map you see you are in a triangle between the highway, busy street and train tracks but we heard absolutely nothing -- and I am the kind of person who hears everthing. There is AC in the room so you never have to open the windows. The bed was great. The room was large enough for two people, and just a block away was the beginnings of the Parnell area which was great for food and drink and shopping. We were there for 4 nights and loved it.

This was my third stay in Quest Carlaw Park. Everything is perfect - location - close to Parnell and 5mins to the city. Excellent getaway from parking to a busy Stanley Street. I stayed in many apartments (studios and one bedroom on longer stays) on all floors and all is simply super - extra comfy beds, modern kitchens and bedrooms with power showers, proper hairdriers and lovely lotions and potions etc. Yun is the most likeable manager and host - always extremely helpful, smiley and chatty. Girls at the reception - adorable. I will definitely stay again, but would agree with the review below - ask for the room away from the road and 24hr Caltex. Also, parking fee is a bit steep, but I suppose there is nothing that can be done, as the parking is not owned by the hotel...Oh - try restaurants downstairs - lady in the Thai place remembers my name every time I visit and Italian place at the other end of the hotel is a must-visit. Try they home-made pastas and chat to a great owner!

Room Tip: Chose rooms as far away from the road as possible - closer to the Aucklan Domain end, the better

I had 1 night there last week, it is a modern new apartment building, very tidy, very comfortable. I particularly liked that you can charge back to your room from the restaurents downstairs. All in all a nice stay

We just had 4 nights at Quest Carlaw Park, went to a concert at Vector which is only 5 mins walk away & why we chose this accommodation. Our Penthouse apartment was spacious, with beautiful bathrooms and fantastic (enormous) kitchen. We loved sitting on the deck in the evening sun but didn't enjoy the noise at night.
I like to do my reviews in terms of pros & cons so here they are:
Pros - comfortable beds, HUGE apartment, fabulous shower, close walk to Vector, ok walk up to Parnell (steep street) no noise between apartments as so well spaced out, well stocked and enormous kitchen, washing machine/dryer/dishwasher/ full oven etc etc. Near new and just lovely really, everything new and clean.
Cons - extremely noisy at night in the penthouse by the road end, directly above a 24 hour Caltex with a 24 hour carwash, trucks, trains and containers at the nearby port all contributed to a noisy nights sleep. Internet and parking both an extra cost which seems cheeky when the room rate was $325 per night. The carpark security concerned us after meeting a couple who's car was broken into during our stay and noticing broken glass around various parking spots.
Overall - would stay there again but will be asking for an apartment at the Carlaw Park end.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the Carlaw Park end, hopefully it will be quieter than above the 24 hour Caltex.

Enjoyed our gorgeous 2 bedroom penthouse - quiet location, big, clean, light, windows floor to ceiling, balcony, carpeting on the floor, full kitchenette, dishwasher, laundry, iron, ironing board.Everything have been thought of down to details, you won't be disappointed! Bedrooms: totally identical, each is ensuite, properly located at opposite sides of the living room so that you can keep your privacy.Each has a flat screen + another one is in the living room.
Bathrooms: full toiletry (no toothbrush and toothpaste though).Shower cabin is spacious, shower itself is fixed.No robes.
We arrived after working hours and used intercom system to check in, the keys were gotten from lock-box - we liked this idea. As for receptionists - we managed to see one on check out only and it didn't bother us.
No free wifi in rooms, but there is a computer in the lobby you can use when ever you want.

Everything in Quest Carlaw Park is made for your comfort with love and care, so, enjoy, relax and do not think of anything - you'll get here all you need! Highly recommend !

Stayed here just prior to the Rugby World Cup starting, to attend an event at the Vector Arena. Excellent location, clean and quiet apartment with everything we needed. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, especially being so close to the city and so easy to find off the motorway.
