“Great CBD location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Popped in here for a couple of nights and enjoyed my stay, the hotel met all of my prerequisites for a business stop over, which are a comfy bed, quiet, clean and functional room. The hotel restaurant and bar are staffed with friendly and obliging staff and I'd definitely stay here again, when next I'm in Auckland.

Superb accommodation in the heart of auckland.
You won't hear the traffic or the nightlife but if you are chasing fun this is a great place to set up camp.
Awesome restaurant and the concierge was totally outstanding.
Breakfast to die for.

This was the last hotel we stayed in before leaving New Zealand from Auckland airport. There was an excellent conciege who took our bags up to the room where on entering I saw a man 'falling' from the Sky Tower. Our window looked straight at the Tower! We were also near the harbour so we could get the Ferry trip around the Harbour. The room and ensuite shower room were excellent and there was free wi-fi.

We stayed here for an overnighter on our way to a holiday overseas.
Couldn't have asked for a better hotel!

Valet service was prompt and hilarious!
Check in was fast and effortless, rooms were neat and spacious.
Great location across from Sky City, 10 min walk from Viaduct.

Breakfast was amazing and definitely "made" the stay for me, if you get an opportunity to add this to your stay you must absolutely take it!

Loved it so much I joined the rewards program.

Rydges is a comfortable hotel, not the most modern but clean and well kept. Everything you need is offered. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel and plan on returning here next time I visit. Well done Rydges!

We thought the hotel was very comfortable, and well located for shopping and entertainment. We were glad we phoned to ask if we could use our Entertainment Book card for further discount off a Booking.com special we had seen. The information person told us we could not, as we would have had to book on the Entertainment Book website. However she did explain that we could become priority members for no extra cost and we would then be entitled to a further 10% discount, a free drink and late check-out ( 1 p.m.). All of this, valet car parking ( a real boon), wonderful breakfast for 2 on both mornings for only about $330 for two nights, which enabled us to see 4 NZ Film Festival films. We also received Rydges Points towards another stay at any Rydges Hotel.

Our only gripes were poor TV reception and a slow heating system.

Room Tip: Rydges have an online check-in system which allows guests to select the room. We went for the views...

Good hotel, central and clean plus we had the perfect view of the skytower. We stayed a night here early July and it was great, we got there around 11am and our room was ready which is rare with some hotels as they don't like you to check in until 2pm. We had a good stay here and would definitely go back. Rydges take pride in their hotels and this hotel certainly reflects this.
