“Strong standards continue and even get better”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Hadn't stayed for a while, and better than I recalled. Clean, well maintained, good bed, great view of the harbour and bridge, couch and desk to work at. Could either have window open or use aircon which nice. Great food for breakfast and dinner - and reasonably priced. Like the inclusive wifi price. Handy to everything I needed

We just spent 7 nights at Rydges Auckland city center. The food is good, the location is perfect, the room is great (clean, quiet, modern). The only reason I didn't rate it 5* is because housekeeping is inconsistent. During our week there, things were missed: incomplete clean, improper supplies or not the requested amount given. Aside from that, we would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room that doesn't open right into the bathroom.

Thank you also for raising your housekeeping experience with me so I can take action in this immediately so when you next stay with us you can feel we are worth that extra star.

215 NZD all inclusive for a standard double, that's a very good deal

We like :
- Very comfortable room with all the amenities one trveller may need : - soft and comfortable bed - complete hot beverage corner - included internet
- Execellent location : 2 blocks from Queen st, and 5 minutes to Brittomart, plenty of dining options around and a huge Countdown by the corner. Almost next to the busy skytower area.
- Friendly front desk and nice looking bar

We don't :
- Nothing so far

To get there :
That's 4th stop from the airport on the Airbus Express on queen st, then walk 50 m

Excellent choice in Auckland, and the price only gets it better

Room Tip: Higher floors offer surely better view

I love your list of the things you don’t like about Rydges Auckland! I also see your ‘we like’ list as a challenge, we would love to help you make it much longer. I hope the next time you stay with us you are able to add to this list and have another fantastic stay.

We have just spent three nights here and have very much enjoyed the experience. We had a very nice room on the 13th floor overlooking the Sky Tower which is a very dominant city landmark. Below this is one of the stops on the City bus sightseeing tour which is excellent.The hotel is centrally located with easy access to restaurants in both the city and at the marina which is five minute walk away. Breakfast has the usual large hotel buffet with a good range of choice. This establishment can be confidently recommended.

It certainly sounds like you were able to experience so much of the great things Auckland has to offer in the your 3 days in town and it’s perfect that the hotel is so close to just about all of it! Thank you so much for your confident recommendation and I sincerely hope we have the pleasure of your stay with us again in the very near future.

We stayed here in August on our first night in Auckland on a week's break. Staff were very efficient and room was adequate, although somewhat on the small and cramped side. Bed as always for Rydges was very comfortable and bathroom was clean and sufficient. Everything was clean and ok for a one night stay. Room was an odd shape and difficult to get around suitcases etc comfortably. Would stay here again as all we wanted was a comfortable bed after an early flight. Restaurant was good value.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the next level if you are staying more than one night.

I hope your week long holiday was just the break you were after and I am so pleased we could be your first stop. Our beds really are wonderful and we get so many great comments about them, I’m glad you liked them too.
I hope your next break is not too far away as we would love to have back very soon.

For the low price we paid, we couldn't have been happier with the spacious and comfortable room. The location is within walking distance of all downtown sights. Our two nights were very relaxing and we would stay again if we return.
