Friiends and I stayed two nights and had a great stay. Affordable, spacious, attentive management service. Our housing was to accommodate three persons and we were given a Deluxe Suite; which was actually more along the lines of a duplex living arrangement. Accommodations were clean and centrally located, within walking distance of Auckland's Sky Tower and downtown strip. The street...

This hotel has a great location close to Sky City and maybe 15 min. walk to the harbour. Our room was okay - two regular sized beds were pushed together to make it seem like a bigger bed, but really just had the annoying part down the middle. The TV was constantly static and the room was HOT. Hotter than...

This is a hotel located at the centre of Auckland City. It is near to Skycity, the tallest tower in Auckland where you can have a panoramic view of Auckland City. It is also near to Queen Street, the busiest and the most vibrant region of Auckland. We checked in after dinner. The lobby is small with not much décor...

Third time we have stayed here, So convenient for Sky City, harbour, shops, you don't need a car. Nice, easy check-in, help with cases(thank-you Shirley). Good, comfortable, clean room on 9th floor. Small but very adequate toilet/shower room. Cleaned every day very well. Really great value for a hotel right in the City. Would always look to stay here when...

Find it very disappointing that large hotels such as here do not provide free wifi within the room only downstairs in the lobby - not suitable to sit in the lobby and use Skype. After only arriving an hour or so previous Room Service called and barged in without knocking first. Bathroom in suite was very small especially shower. Asked...

We only stayed at this hotel just for two nights after arriving from Fiji. Fiji accommodation much better and food much nicer. Ate in the restaurant and found it quite bland. Service staff were good though and quite helpful. Can only rate this hotel around a 3 out of 5. Check in good. Service good. Food bland. Room ok.

We were happy with the location of this hotel, just up the street from the Sky Tower, and walking distance to the marina and other restaurant and shopping areas. Our room ( 2 double beds with private washroom ) was clean, and the beds were super comfortable. Our room looked out onto a wall, which wasn't very exciting, but there...

The Hotel was booked for us by our travel agent. It was grubby and well worn in need of refurbishment. The restaurant was closed on night we were there. The breakfast was very grim. The only thing in its advantage is that is near sky tower and city centre not airport.
