Booked 2 nights in a standard double room. The room was a good size with great shower which was perfect after a long flight. Close walk to the city centre - good location if going on the Hop On Hop Off bus or visiting Sky City.

The hotel was easy to find but the carpark was not so easy. We double parked on the busy street while my husband ran in to find where the carpark was and the number to press on the security gate. The carpark was secure and out of the weather, but very tight if you own a large vehicle. They charged... More

Room was a good size and think they gave me a free upgrade. Staff were knowledgeable about their city and very helpful. Not a great view (just other apartment block) but that didn't matter to me. The location was relatively close to the Skybus terminal (airport shuttle) and to the main Queens Street. .

The hotel is a standard hotel. Room size is good. The primary problem I had with the hotel was the shower. On the bottom of the shower was a peice of rusted metal stuck out the side. It cut the top of my foot requiring 3 stitches and a tetanus shot. The manager was very unprofessional and no help. Would... More

Stayed here late 2015 and remember being very impressed with the room and service for the price that we paid for. Only stayed here as every other place was booked out but definitely don't regret it and would consider this place as one of my first options next time i decide to stay in Auckland.

This hotel is not 4 stars hotel, the rooms are dark without strong natural light, the breakfast is so expansive but very simple and it's quite far from city center and shopping! But the staff was very friendly and kind the bed was comfortable with king size!!

The main hotel's entrance door is not that impressive; it should be wider for customers to walk in. The ambiance and decorations in the lobby are tastefully comfortable and cozy. The location of the hotel is easily accessible to restaurants, convenient marts, shopping malls, transports, etc.

6 or so rooms over 2 floors in a separate wing have been nicely decorated in art-deco style. These rooms are smallish but quite comfortable and tastefully renovated and furnished. Flat screen TV in both bedroom and lounge areas and good room amenities. No lift to these floors but reception people will gladly assist with luggage. Reception people were impressive.... More

We had a standard room on the 9th floor. It was clean and spacious and a decent size. Bed was incredibly comfy. Didn't eat st the hotel so can't comment on that. Did have breakfast in the cafe in reception fond(ou) which was really good, reasonably priced and had incredibly friendly staff. Would stay here again!
