There is nothing especially wrong with these apartments. In terms of positives they are within walking distance to Queens St, the Viaduct and the fabulous Auckland War Memorial Museum and Auckland Domain. They are clean, basic and reasonably modern.
However the welcome at reception was lacking by comparison to the high standards we found throughout New Zealand and service was quite slow. The street they are in is also not so great. It seems to be a hang out spot for kids after dark and while it seems perfectly safe it is not the most pleasant surroundings. Parking is available but is a reasonable walk away and a bit of a headache. Overall it is fine for a night or two when passing through but far from a highlight of a visit to Auckland or New Zealand as a whole.
