Was staying there for a conference. No complaints from me, excellent hotel. If you can get a good deal on rate, worth staying at. Good restaurant on site, barista in lobby and half a block to Sky Tower

There is a lot of construction going on in Auckland at the moment but this hotel was on a quiet street. Convenient for the Skycity area (do try the Depot eatery) and only a short walk to the harbour. The city loop bus stop is nearby which is handy if you want to investigate the higher quality shopping in Newmarket....

The room is very small and the shower is not strong but still had a pleasant stay. Location is fabulous but the breakfast menu should offer more options of full breakfast not only separate different dishes. The view from my room was pretty bad, facing the building next door.

Great location, quite and clean, very comfortable. Staff helpful and i like the $10 voucher to spend in the dining room idea for not needing your room serviced everyday. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a short stay in Auckland.

Stayed for 4 nights in June 2016. Hotel is very close to the Sky City Tower, and about 10 mins walk down to the harbour area, so well placed. Our room was in a corner overlooking some nearby office building but also had good views down to the harbour. Comfortable and friendly hotel, with a bit of a boutique feel...

Management guru Tom Peters talks about the essence of great customer service being the ability to surprise and delight your customers. Rydges certainly did that for me, from my first exchange with the courteous and professional staff member at reception when checking in.
