First you must be careful when you book... there are two properties within the Metropolis building... the Apartments at Metropolis and the Metro Suites. The Metro Suites reception is around the corner from Kitchener Street and closes around 7pm. The Apartments run more like a hotel and have 24 hour reception. Having said that, and having stayed in both, the rooms are almost identical. My preference is for the Metro Suites as you get higher floors which equals better views. They are serviced apartments so there is no room service except for housekeeping (ie extra towels, pillows etc). But, they are well equipped and have a kitchen and laundry. Ideal if you are staying for a longer time. The property is very central and is just off Queen Street. If you don't want to self cater there is a cafe just downstairs that does a good breakfast and Wagamama right next door for dinner. There is an abundance of good restaurants within 500m of the property. It is only a 10 minute walk to the Quay or to the Skytower, so it is well located.
The downside is the parking which is $25 NZD per night and the internet rate which cost us $29.90 for 2 days!! The gym and pool are shared by both properties and are free to use.
When I am in Auckland for a longer time and feel the need to self-cater and do some washing, this has become my property of choice.
