Wish I'd read the reviews prior to booking as I 100% would not have booked. On arrival we were greeted by another resident smoking at the front doors in their pyjamas. It was 2pm in the arvo! Straight away I knew this experience was not going to go well. The reception woman was not helpful and did not make any effort to make you feel welcome at their establishment. Management needs a bomb up their ar** to sort their staff out. Basic customer service skills!!! The first noticeable thing entering apartment is the extensive damage to the walls and furniture. There was an issue with the AC - it was non-existent. Maintenance brought in a portable AC and 2 fans? Reading other reviews this seems to be a regular thing. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment, rooms are small and basic. You pay $10 a day for a carpark that is in the open and no security. Absolutely no pride is taken with managing this property and I would take a stab in the dark it is being used as emergency housing for NZL's less privileged. Smoking around the building should be banned! Each time we entered the front doors we had to navigate around people sitting on the stairs smoking. For visitors from out of town or from another country. I apologise and am embarrassed that this is what they are greated with when visiting Auckland. So if you're reading this, thank your lucky stars and spend a little extra $$$ somewhere else!

We stayed in apartment #701 for 2 nights. It is a 1-bedroom apartment and I've booked it because the images on the website looks like a classy upmarket apartment. However upon arrival the apartment looks nothing like the images on the website. This is misadvertising. The carpet badly stained, dirty and wrinkley. The wall paint peeling. There's no air conditioning just a standing fan not in great condition. We have to open the windows to let some air in as quite a hot day but the noise from the motorway and people cleaning windows in the opposite building late night was quite unbearable. The couch was changed with stains and holes, quite uncomfortable and filthy. TV didn't work, don't think it was plugged in. Windows could do with a clean and shutters patched up filled with dust. Floor was sticky. WiFi was free but didn't use it. Car park handy but an extra $10 a day. There's a $150 bond upon check in. The bedroom was quite narrow but bed was comfortable. Iron provided without an ironing board. Shower was clean and room serviced daily. Laundry machine provided and fridge/freezer was big enough. Reception could be more friendlier and welcoming. There's lots of foot traffic in the building. Although security was tight lots of people smoking and congregating at both entrance to the building. It can be scary at nights. Standard of cleanliness falls way short of acceptance standards and reflects overall poor management of this establishment. Such a pity as location is great quite close to Manukau mall and shops but with price and standard I would not recommend Mcentral Apartments and I would never stay with them again.

Arrived late but hassle free check in. Booked a one bedroom but found we were in a lovely modern two bedroom apartment with a decked out kitchen. Funky cool chairs, clean, very comfortable beds and pillows and right across from the Manukau Train Station. Booked this hotel based on price $122 and proximity to airport.

Worst. Accommodation. Ever. Was booked for two nights for a work trip and ended up on the top floor in a "Twin Bedroom Studio" with my boss in one room and me in the other. The first sign of the quality to come was the fact that the door to our room had quite obviously been crow-barred open at some point, as per one of the attached photos. The bedrooms were the size of a small walk-in closet and had cheap, nasty, frosted "glass" sliding doors. Inside the bedrooms they each had a high window that looked out... into the hallway. I didn't realise till the first morning that they had a cheap roll-down blind on them so I could have at least partially blocked out the wonderful bright hallway lights.. The couch was a "leather" two-seater that had two huge rips on them as per one of the attached photos. It was as hot as a sauna in the room when we first got there, and the only way to cool it down was a portable air-con unit with a hose stuffed out the window, as per one of the attached photos. Not ideal when you want to close the blinds! It was also extremely loud so we couldn't sleep with it on anyway, so overnight the bedrooms were way too hot and both of us complained in the morning of having a really bad nights sleep plagued by really noticeable hayfever symptoms. The bathroom seemed clean enough, but when opening the shower door you could smell a strong scent of mould. We ended up just leaving in the morning and booking into another hotel instead. DO NOT STAY HERE.

30 minutes before anyone answered the front door/ reception desk (4pm on Saturday afternoon). Booking confirmation (pre-paid) through travel agent. Receptionist stated no booking as such and didn't accept email from world renown travel agent on their letterhead with booking reference number - instead the receptionist demanded payment be immediately released from Agent before he would check us in. Really rude so I informed the travel agent to refund my money and I would find somewhere else that had better hospitality. Travel agent only too happy to obliged.
