Tiny, run down, noisy, hot room. Pigeons on deck and poo everywhere. Definitely not worth $130 for the night, no air conditioning. Would pay $50 but won’t be staying again anyway. Room nothing like pic online.

Excellent location in the heart of Auckland. If you don't mind that there is no real reception area, uncovered light fixtures, peeling paint, shoddy door handle, no air conditioning, the room is very small but clean and bed comfortable. Top floor was very quiet.

Awesome place to stay, restaurant had amazing food, staff super helpful and friendly, room was neat and tidy and the place has amazing character! Not much parking around the hotel so ideal for those without a car but we managed just fine :) loved it

I parked a car overnight in a nearby multi storey carpark. I had read bad reports of the Wilson group of car parks (in addition to locals warning me off!) so I used the one that you access through a hotel (struggling to... More
