Auckland Airport Kiwi Hotel
Ranked #17 of 23 Hotels in Mangere
Reviewed April 30, 2012

If you need to stay overnight near the Auckland airport for an early morning departure this is the place.
Low cost, we paid NZD59 for a very nice double room
Car parking, you can leave your car at the hotel for up to 14 days , free
Free shuttle to the airport , just a short drive away.
Perfect for what we needed.

We stayed one night after a late night arrival around 1am at Auckland airport. The free shuttle arrived within 10 minutes and we were greeted by a man in reception who was efficient and quick. We had our two sons with us who were very tired and we were glad to get to bed around 2am. After reading some of the reviews about this hotel, we did wonder what we'd let ourselves in for but we were pleasantly surprised. For the price per night, it is a very good deal. We had a large room with a queen bed and two single beds. All were very firm (felt new) beds with clean, starched white sheets and pillowcases. The bathroom was clean with a new toilet and the shower worked really well. For the cost, you can't do better and it was totally convenient for us with the pre-arranged airport shuttle at an uncivilised hour. We also used the free shuttle again the next day to go back to the airport. As we woke up late, we missed the free breakfast but we would have eaten this had we been earlier and it was a nice surprise to see this included in the cost of the room. We would definitely use this hotel again if we arrive late and need one night to recover before moving on.

Cheap and relatively clean. The staff are all so helpful and cheerful but it's seriously outdated, needs an even more serious refurb or at least a good handy man for a few hours to make some improvements. But then we'd have to pay more... so maybe not.

We had no ventilation in the bathroom so the curtains got stuck to the window. The previous resident must have opened the window to counteract this steamy window effect and we killed 6 mosquito's within the first hour that were already inside. there were blood spots and dead mossies in the window nets from previous residents... The coat hangers fell off the screws they were attached to when we brushed past them. and the bathroom taps had a mind of their own.

But the bed linen and towels were clean, the carpark was well lit and it all felt secure. internet is available for your last minute online check in.

It's your typical budget airport hotel, and the free transfers and close location to the airport make the bad things not matter so much. As long as you're not fussy...

Room Tip: as far away from the stairwell as possible as there are no corridor doors anywhere to stop the noise...

Pick up from the airport had to be organized upon arrival via a free phone located at hotel information in arrivals area (it would have saved us some time had this information been conveyed through booking site on the web). It took a while, but it worked out fine eventually.
Property and room layout is more like a motel rather than a hotel. Our room was fairly dated and screaming to be freshened up. If refurbishment is not planned any time soon a thorough cleaning would help it a lot! Other than that it served its purpose - we spent a night there between flights. Not much to do in the area, and probably the only attraction is the graveyard accross the street with colourful decorations and offerings on the graves Pacific Islander style.

Spend one night for stopover. Had to wait one hour for pickup (after twelve hour flight, arriving at midnight). Rooms ok, but not very clean

Seriously think you need a new receptionist, so rude that guy is. Having left behind some valuables he said housekeeping had just been in the room and went to ask if they found anything left in our room. Receptionist said nothing was left there and if they did find it, they would give me a call. After checking my bags for the 3rd time I rang back and most adamantly stated that its there and I know it, said theres nothing trust me I will ring you if there is. After advising him that I would be informing the police did he actually do something about my missing valuables. He had the cheek to tell me that at handover(this is the same guy I had talked to on all occasions)the evening receptionist had not told him(same guy on all occassions) that housekeeping had handed in my valuables. Surprise, surprise totally untrustworthy and rude. Not all facilities available e.g iron that clearly states on your website there is. Even though its cheap, can't say much more other than that. Definitely won't be back

What is confusing about this property is that is is right next door to the Aukland airport kiwi HOTEL. I booked at the MOTEL because it looked nicer it he pictures. However, when we arrived we were given a room in the HOTEL because the MOTEL was full. On our way out of NZ we also stayed here and in the MOTEL (as booked). So I can speak to the differences between them as well as shared amenities. We arrived at 12:45am after flying from Los Angeles through Sydney. When I called for the shuttle I was told it would take 25 min. We didn't get into our room until almost 2am. The room in the HOTEL was quite run down and not the cleanest. The free breakfast in the morning (same for the hotel and motel) was toast, corn flakes, juice, and coffee. for $5 extra you could get eggs and bacon. The MOTEL room we stayed in the way out of aukland was much bigger, it had a full living room, kitchenette, and separate bedroom. You could tell that they took some short cuts on building the rooms. For one, I shorted out the breaker when blow drying my hair. I suppose for one night either the hotel or motel is fine (the motel was better). The free shuttle is nice, but the breakfast is nothing special.
