We stayed here two nights in a three bedroom apartment. Although the size was nice the apartments are a little bit odd, the three bedroom being made up of 3 one bedroom apartments all connected by interconnecting doors. Which doesn't quite give you the same vibe as a real three bedroom. The pool is also quite small and shallow though...

Booked on-line. Chosen because of location (walking distance to ship). Airport bus dropped us at the door, a cheap and efficient ride from the airport. Situated in a safe area with lots of stores, bakeries and restaurants around. Nothing is cheap in Auckland but City Life is good value... comparatively. Great receptionists who webt out of their way to make...

Close to the port and to Sky City Casino. Concierge was extremely helpful in every way: inc storing luggage, maps, directions and arranging cab for airport. Found the restaurant "pricey" so choose to eat elsewhere. Good selections close by, especially an Asian restaurant called KUSHI. Free wifi for limited time only,

Stayed one night, would love to have stayed more. The staff were exceptional, we had requested interconnecting rooms but ended up with rooms on different floors, however that didn't really matter, the staff were very helpful and friendly. We requested chilled wine glasses when checking in and they were in our room before we got there. The facilities are excellent,...
