“great location”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

we stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath harbour view apartment for three nights at the end of our trip through NZ.

The apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped, and was actually larger than we had expected when looking at the photos on the website.

the location is great being so close to the many restaurants and bars around the viaduct, the road network was easy to navigate back the hotel from our drives, and there were plenty of transport options from the nearby Britomart to get you just about anywhere in Auckland.

Alison and Graeme were quite helpful with the few technical hiccups we had, and overall I thought it was fair value for money

I had the opportunity to stay in a three bedroom two story apartment in Auckland Waterfront Apartments the last time I traveled. If I was traveling with my family, I would certainly find one of these beauties a fantastic option. All three bedrooms were lovely. The apartment was spotless and there was a huge and deep soaking tub on the first floor where two of the three bedrooms were located. The master had en suite and each one had a comfortable bed with quality linens and pillows. The kitchen, dining and living areas were beautiful and comfortable. The views, as usual, were magnificent.
While my stay in that apartment was short, it was memorable and I recommend this option for families. The ease of a full kitchen, and homelike feel of the space would be much more conducive to a great vacation where everyone has privacy but can be in the same space. I have traveled elsewhere with my children and had connecting rooms, a suite with a fold out bed, and fully separate rooms. The suite offers no privacy, the connecting rooms were better but eating out for every meal got tiresome, and completely separate rooms just did not give me comfort. The option of a three bedroom serviced apartment is a perfect solution.
I have included some photos and one is a picture of a fantastic sunset that is typically seen from the apartments.

Room Tip: All the rooms are super clean and well appointed. This short stay in the three bedroom apartment was...

It is not correct to call these apartments as being "serviced apartments". They are only serviced once a week and it is SELF Service otherwise including taking your own garbage down to the bins on lower floors. We stayed for 5 days and missed any service being provided. There were a number of items that were deficient/not working of a minor nature which detracted for a property at this price-point - maybe a reflection that these properties are strata-title ownership and the managers do the best they can in these circumstances

The location and views are excellent - certainly convenient. Quite spacious compared with similar product elsewhere. If they were daily serviced as this category of property should be , they would be regarded as excellent value

Room Tip: Little choice, you get what is available

Having lived in Auckland for many years I must say this is the best place to stay, it is central with all restaurants , bars around and the view of the harbour is so nice , I love it.
Staying at the waterfront apartments makes my to trip to New Zealand perfect.
We have been coming to these apartments for a few years now, we had the one bedroom and the two bedrooms, they are all nice and we enjoy the stay every time.
I find the one bedroom spacious.
I am used to the carpark now and I like the way we pick up the keys (and drop off) , no reception. Graeme and Alison are very friendly, true Kiwi style.
The apartments are clean, tidy . You feel you are at home. They are well equipped.
The beds and pillows are good (I usually have a problem with that) and I love the linen, so fresh just like home!
At times you can see the cruise ship coming or going it is a nice view.
I am looking forward to return soon.
Thank you for making my stay so enjoyable, I know I would not enjoy it so much if I was staying somewhere else :)

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the 2sd floor in shed 25 for 5 nights in May. No reception lobby you have to ring when you arrive and they come down to meet you. Graeme met us and explained how to use the secure carpark & where to park and then helped carry our bags to the apartment. Alison was waiting for us there & showed us where everything was and where we could get meals or buy supplies.
The kitchen had all that you would need to make & serve most meals. Bathroom was a bit cramped but did also house the washing machine & drier. No bath but full size shower & large basin.
Bedroom could be shut off from main living area but chose to leave open and enjoy the view over the water. King size bed a bit too firm for us & more/ better pillows would have been nice. Floor to ceiling windows / sliding doors opened up to good sized balcony with table & chairs.
Lounge & dining area added to the overall open feel.
Very short walk to just about everything, plenty of good eating places & pubs, sailing & ferries next door. And the ever changing harbour views.
Would look no further when next in Auckland.

The location of these apartments (,which previously had been built for the Hilton Hotel), right at the harbour next to the Hilton Hotel is ideal for a relaxing stay in Auckland. You'll have a nice view over the harbour and the bay from the balcony.
Once a while there is a hughe cruise ship anchoring in the harbour and would block the view from most of the rooms in the Hilton Hotel, but not of the apartments.
There are many restaurants and shops close by.

The apartments are basically a very spacious room with sliding doors to separate the bedroom. The kitchen is open to the big living room. The bathroom has also a shower (no bathtub), a washing machine and a dryer. Washing powder is provided.

The kitchen is well equipped. Almost anything you might need is there.

There is a medium size TV, radio, CD player and WiFi Internet.

Everything is need and clean. You are asked to take care of the apaprtment yourself, there is no service.

Security is good, you can enter the building and the elevator only with a badge.

The owners are very friendly and helpful: in case something does not work, they will repair it promptly.

I can recommend this place very much !

There is no access to a fitness center nor pool.

Room Tip: the higher the better view.

Auckland Waterfront Apartments was the perfect location for our stay. Right on the waterfront and easy walk to lots of restaurants, cafes, bars etc. Great 2 bedroom apartment with views out over the water, marina and up towards Auckland Harbour bridge.. Apartments are clean and tidy, well appointed with heaps of space. Highly recommended..
