“Terrific place, clean and quiet, close to harbor”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We booked this place (through Orbitz) for two nights in Auckland before our cruise ship left from that city. It turned out to be ideal, and a real bargain at about $120/night. Our unit was essentially a modern, spacious, clean apartment, with one large bedroom, a spacious living/dining room with a well-equipped kitchenette, a second smaller sitting room, a roomy balcony, and a bathroom with a clothes washer (coin-operated dryers available on the 2nd floor). It is only a 10 minute walk from the harbor, and there is a full-service grocery store 5 minutes away. A nice Indian restaurant on the first floor that also provides takeout. The only downside was no free wifi, though they did offer paid internet use in the lobby. The people at the front desk were very friendly, helpful and efficient.

We stayed 3 nights in 2 bedroom apartment. Price was reasonable and location was great. Staff were very helpful with our queries and knowledgeable on attractions. As we were in a self contained unit we might have needed to let them know that we wanted fresh towels as no cleaning done while we were there. Not a problem really and I am sure if we had asked would have been no issue. Will remember for next time.

Room Tip: Choose self contained apartment for family

.Good things - 10 mins walk to Queen Street mall, close to the waterfront area, restaurants & shops. if you have business there, and a stones throw from the new railway station, which .The apartment was very clean, a lovely balcony, and good quality toaster, kettle etc. crockery etc all in good supply. There was a couple of places to eat and a small convenience store a minutes walk away.
Great Gym & pool nearby in the other Waldorf complex..great king size bed . good internet service. safe 24/7 reception
Wouldn't have a problem staying here again, and I got a fanatic rate online.

We had a great 5 night stay at the Celestion Waldorf. The location was great!!! The rooms were very spacious and clean, and it was great how there was an Indian restaurant connected to the hotel. It Would definitely be my first choice if I go back to Auckland.

We stayed here for 3 nights as a family of four. Service at reception upon arrival was great. Secure parking underneath hotel is $25 per night but I guess it is Auckland central .and it is secure. Rooms are clean and well appointed. We stayed in a two bedroom family suite, which has master bedroom downstairs with Ensuite and huge shower area. The second bedroom is located near the veranda. .Our unit faced the main road but it was not noisy at all , the bedrooms were at back of unit which made for quiet restful sleep in comfy beds. Location is great, supermarkets, coffee shop and restaurants are a very short walk away. would highly recommend staying here.

Conveniently located to the hustle & bustle without being right in it. A short stroll to restaurants & coffee on the viaduct, shopping on Queen street and markets in the weekend. Generous sized rooms, clean, great customer service and an overall great stay. We have stayed here twice now and will be returning customers.

First visit to Auckland and this hotel was very good, almost excellent.
My flight arrived at 4 AM and I was able to do the check in on arrival, which was a super plus¡¡¡. They also upgraded my room so I was in a department with two bedrooms, a big bathroom, full kitchen. Excellent deal for a family.
The location is very convenient, four blocks from Britomart and Ferry Buiding.
The only reason I dont give them 5 stars is because there was no free WiFi, not in the bedroom or the lobby. In the reception area there was a computer with internet but guests were charged a fee. These little details can make a lot.
Overall I would definitely stay here again.
