Handy central location, friendly & helpful staff, spotlessly clean & well maintained, rooms with everything you need - as a business traveller, why would you stay anywhere else. City Lodge is remarkable value for money!

Have stayed here a number of times over the last few years. Like the location even if it is a bit of a hill walk, rooms, price, friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, lots of brochures to look at for things to do.

The lodge was all I could ask for in the heart of Auckland CBD. Very well run business. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper--not because the lodge is noisy, but it is a very busy and dense part of town. Construction noises and sirens are a part of the life there.

Great location for city and events. Just what we needed - bed and bathroom. Clean, functional rooms. Would prefer real milk to UHT. Check in was easy and smooth. Limited parking, but there when reserved. Lift is slow, but does its job. Quiet for a city venue. Would recommend.

We stayed here for 5 nights. A good budget option within easy walking distance of Sky Tower, Queen Street, K Street, Britomart and other downtown sites/amenities. Very clean room and kitchen facilities. Walls were thin so we were lucky to have quiet neighbours. Police station and fire station both within a block or two so sirens were occasionally an issue....

First time to try backpacker accommodation! Very impressed with the cleanliness. We stayed in a 2 bunk room with ensuite. The room is little squeezy with 4 adults with 4 suitcases but it didn't bother us as we only were in the room to sleep. Great value for money and totally recommend the place. Very friendly staff too. Thank you.

Single room looks exactly like on the website. A bit old (paint has little holes that make it look a bit most, showers have old fixtures, heater doesn't seem to work) but spotlessly clean and comfortable bed. Great cheap base right in the city. Would definitely stay again.

Located in the heart of the city. Room was good for one person overnight, but rather cold. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was rather quiet itself, but the walls and windows were thin, so a lot of noise filtered in. Overall a good place to stay, though.

It's in a very good location. Rooms are nice and clean and well maintained. In the basement is a large communal area. If I was to come back to Auckland I would probably look to stay here. The only downside is there aren't that many parking places for the car.

My mom and I stayed here for four nights. I am quite satisfied with all the stuffs here, but my mother's not. First, we both think staffs are all so nice and helpful. Second, it's a good location there. Quiet environment, many trees, near queen road, 15 minutes walk to skycity, convenient to buy foods(a big supermarket 5 minutes walk)....
