“Best pleace in Auckland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We were there for 3 nights, honestly the best place to stay in Auckland, is right in front of the Air bus, so if you are coming from overseas you can get there very easy and cheap, cCentraly located but not too clase as to hear all the noise. Rooms were very clean. We had a private bathroom but sometimes used the shared ones and they were always very tidy and clean. It is a perfect place to recover from your trip. Do not expect partys in here. Only thing is that some rooms have a window right on top of were the garbage truck picks up the garbage and it may wake you up at 6 am. We'll come back when we go there

Thanks for the great review and the heads up re the early garbage collection. They're not supposed to be in that early so we'll be getting on to them about that. We look forward to hosting you again.

Great location and good value for the price. Very friendly staff - travel desk with helpful and knowledgable person running it. Very clean rooms - we had a double. Didnt hear any street noise.Room slightly small but expected for the price we paid. Breakfast was a reasonable cost and absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked (kiwi breakfast).
Will stay again and will recommend to others who need something reasonably priced

Very nice and helpful receptionist. My single room with ensuite was very clean and quiet. The airport bus stops directly in front of the hotel, a few meters further is the bus stop for the "free" (with Snapper or Hop on, Hop off card, otherwise 50 cents) bus which takes you down to the Britomart.

Auckland is expensive, so it was good value for money, but no luxury.

This hotel was perfect for my stay - the rooms are clean; staff is excellent - Eric, Joanna, Charlotte, and Philippa the on site tour coordinator. There is breakfast and dinner served - delicious and fresh daily - great chefs who are flexible and everything is yummy!! Loved this ideal location and great price...I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Auckland!!

Our group of 5 adults stayed here mid March and was very impressed with this hotel! Our 2 bedroom apartment room was extremely clean, comfortable, serviced daily, and had everything we needed. You do hear the street noise, but that is to be expected when staying in central Auckland. It was an excellent deal, very affordable for our group traveling on a budget. I would highly recommend.

It's been almost a year since my last stay here. The thing that stood out most this time were the staff, while all staff I met here were friendly and forthcoming, but one in particular (Erik) went out of his way to assist me with finding the last spot (and a very tight one too) and guided me in on the complementary car park. After that I dropped my car key into a narrow trench and he kindly assisted me with some DIY Ingenuity to retrieve it. Will be back again I am sure.

My recent stay at the Kiwi International was as expected. They are a budget hotel and the rooms are quite small even when I did book the option with the Ensuite Bathroom. The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly, i did enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast that did come with the room. The WiFi although available is not reliable at all, sometime it could not find the network or just cut off in the middle of a connection. The hotel does not have air conditioning and on our last night there it was very rough getting a good nights sleep when we could hear many people having a party/get together right below our room in the park outside.

The location is ideal on one of Auckland main roads Queen Street, there are many eating and shopping places all within walking distance. Although since the hotel is located at the top of a hill walking back after a long day of sightseeing can be tough. The airport shuttle bus has a drop off /pick up point right in front of the hotel and the public transportation is also nearby.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher level, to avoid all the noise outside.

Thanks for your review and we're pleased that it met your expectations. Noise on the weekends in any central city location can be an issue but our location is quieter than most. We agree the walk back up the hill can be a challenge after a long day but there is also the option of the 50 cents bus ride.
