Centr@l Precinct Apartment Hotel
Reviewed March 9, 2007

We stayed three nights in the Centr@l Precinct hotel in early March. We chose it because it was cheap and new. They had just opened, indeed beyond the attractive foyer, the lifts were still unfinished (working, but still unlined!). Our room was a superior studio (room 1205). It had a small kitchen area including washing machine etc, sink and fridge, and a few brand-new pieces of cookware, and the tiniest closet I've ever seen. It also had a large balcony, with a view across from the back of the hotel towards the Metropolis, with Albert Park on the right. I thought we'd be high enough on the 12th floor not to have too much noise - and indeed it was fine with the balcony door closed, but if you opened it you had to shout to make yourself heard! So we didn't spend much time on the balcony, despite the fact it was the only place to eat, as it had table and chairs.

Bathroom was fine, shower had good water pressure, only complaint would be space. Only way to get two people in the bathroom would be for one to be in the shower. We had floorspace to lay down one suitcase, but might have struggled if we had two.

Biggest problem with the room was there was no airconditioning. Auckland is too warm for this to be pleasant, and it gave us a choice of baking or opening the balcony door with accompanying traffic racket. We couldn't even leave the ventilation on in the bathroom to help, as the switch for this also turned on the heated towel rail! Also there was only a tiny bin in the bathroom, nothing in the kitchen area or bedroom, so we ended up leaving rubbish in the sink.

To sum up - convenient location, but small unairconditioned rooms, will lose any attraction once no longer new.

Stayed: March 2007
