“A nice change from a hotel”
Reviewed April 25, 2007

We liked our 2 bedroom top-floor apartment - very modern, clean and centrally located in Auckland. The apartment had all the facilities we wanted including a washer/dryer and good kitchen. The price was very reasonable considering the location which was within 10/15 minutes walk for the harbour ferry etc. There is plenty of good, secure, basement parking, but I would advise you to book it in advance (they expect you to) and they do charge for it which they don't tell. Reception were generally helpful, although they didn't replace a failed ceiling light which was a nuisance. These are those annoying modern dichroics which don't last long and you can't reach to replace. Overall, though, a really good place to stay

  • Liked — Spacious room with good facilities
  • Disliked — Room just a little too modern with confused lighting
  • Stayed March 2007, traveled as a couple

Stayed to nights in late January in a two bedroom apartment. 4 people and a baby alltogether.

The apartment was quite small for the group. It should be OK for up to 3 people.

Comes with large fridge, cooking facilities, and a frontload washer/dryer machine, all were spick and span, very new.

Pros
Internet Jacks in the room.

Cons
Front Desk does not work 24 hours

I would certainly stay here again and recommend it wholeheartedly.
