“Great location, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Hotel is located on Queen Street in the heart of Auckland. The staff at reception and restaurant were all terrific and genuine. The bedroom was a bit small but it didn't matter as the hotel, and its shape, are of an art deco design and although dated pretty cool. Our room had all the required amenities. We would easily stay here again when in Auckland.

For what you pay this place isn't worth it. It is way over priced.

It's an old dorm, or backpackers style place. They've just slapped a few coats of paint on it.

Carpet old
Curtains old
Doors and fixtures old
Cutlery etc old
Bathroom very old

To say this place is modern is a joke. Looks nothing like the pictures on the website...id love to stay where ever that is!

It's also noisy as it's right on the main road.

Great location within walking distance of the town center. The hotel, however, is very outdated. The rooms are SMALL (one double bed barely fit), the bathroom had no counter space and was also small. Limited amenities and our view was awful. Staff was very nice and we were able to check in at 11:00am after a very long flight. Much appreciated!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. Our rooms vary quite a bit in size from 25sqm through to 42sqm, Sorry you got a small one and that it was not to your liking. We are always happy to change rooms at check in if they are suitable but perhaps we were full and not able to on this occasion. Your comments are appreciated.
Kind regards Ken

Hotel is located on Queen Street, close to shops, restaurants and harbour area. Room very comfortable and well equipped - it stated tea and coffee making facilities, in fact there's a whole kitchenette including fridge, microwave, crockery etc.
Bed was too soft for us - but maybe that's after having spent 2 weeks in a camper van!

If you are looking for a fabulous location in Auckland right at the heart of the commercial street, this is the place to be!!!!!
Good rooms with a dry kitchen and a very cozy bed!!! Have seen some reviews which are showing the views as disgusting, but I would say that if you can request for a room facing the road then the problems are not there at all.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road should always be preferred so that the problems of disgusting views gets solve...

We arrived at the hotel about 7 AM after a long overnight flight from San Francisco. The staff was able to accommodate us and put us in a room immediately, for which we were grateful. The room itself was actually two rooms, with the bedroom off the main room. It is a self-catering hotel. The accommodation was clean and spacious, it was convenient to bus service, the Civic Center was just across the street, and the Sky Needle was located near there. It was just a few blocks' walk to the waterfront. We ate breakfast and dinner in the Scenic, and it was quite good. and there is an on-site laundry. The staff was most friendly,

This hotel is very convenient if you want somewhere city central. The place was clean and staff friendly. However, it is right on the main street of the city. I was on the first floor and there appeared to be no sound proofing on the windows. I could hear all the street noise (people talking/yelling, cars & trucks) which went on the entire night. Bed was also saggy. Powerpoint did not work in bathroom.

Room Tip: Ask if there are quiet rooms (higher up may have been better).
