I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a Queen Street location. Scenic Hotel Auckland more than exceeded my expectations!
The room was a good size, immaculately clean and with a well equipped kitchenette. There's no cooker but the microwave oven and fridge were enough for storing and heating up food. I didn't use the television in the room, but was puzzled that it faced the kitchenette rather than the bed or any other seating.
The bathroom was small but had a good shower with excellent water pressure.
I was worried about noise from the construction site next door, but my room was at the end of the building furthest from the construction. I had a small view of Queen Street, but the room was well insulated against street noise. Occasionally I'd hear the chime of the Town Hall clock, but it wasn't enough to bother me. The room didn't have much of a view, but I didn't really need one.
The room's air conditioning worked brilliantly. It was easy to operate and kept the room at a very pleasant temperature. Only one complaint - the conditioned air was very dry, and after two nights my lips were cracked and dry!
The hotel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of many good casual food places and restaurants, as well as Auckland's theatre district. It's also close to the City Link and Outer Link bus routes - very handy!
I'd happily stay here again. Look out for online deals in room rates.
