Scenic Hotel Auckland
Ranked #22 of 65 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 13 May 2016

Upon our arrival in New Zealand after a 29 hours journey, we stayed our first night at this hotel. Under these circumstances and tiredness any hotel would be hard to judge. Although called the Scenic, the views were far from scenic. The hotel had seen better days however it was clean with comfortable beds and a good breakfast in the morning. Centrally located it is hand for the Skytower, Harbour and main shopping area. Free wifi was provided and easily logged into.

Centrally located. Room clean and bed comfortable. Nice kitchenette. Bathroom clean and shower had good pressure. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. There is valet parking and the garage used closes at 11pm and reopens at 6:30am. We were informed this in case we would be needing the car between those times. There was construction on the building next to the hotel which started by 7am. We had difficulty falling back asleep through the construction noise. In addition, once we did fall back asleep, we received a phone call from housekeeping asking if we wanted service today. We had the "No disturb" tag on the door. Clearly, that was an unnecessary phone call. At check out, we were able to check our luggage and leave our car in the garage for a couple hours while we enjoyed Auckland in the morning.

Thank you for you for taking the time to give feedback. We do 'courtesy' call rooms who have a do not disturb sign on their door this is because they are regularly inadvertently left there. Sorry about the noise from the construction site, thankfully they are just about finished with that project.
Kind regards, Ken

Room is really nice and clean. We have been upgraded to bigger room. Had a good night sleep even though I feel a few more layers under the bedsheets. Hotel entrance and lift floor are really running down. So does hall way. Need some do up to lift up the atmosphere. Very good location.

Excellent location.The hotel is located in Auckland CBD along Queen Street. The Airport Sky Cab stop right in front of the hotel. Easy stroll to all shops around Auckland CBD and approx. 20 minutes walk to the Ferry terminals.
The receptionist were polite and helpful. Hotel room is clean.

Unfortunately the construction noise right next to the hotel was very loud and constant every morning at 6am. Not conducive to sleeping! I also think the windows of the hotel need to be replaced as they had gaps and this also let a lot of noise into the room. Some positive were the service received from staff and the food, which was very nice, and room service very punctual.

The Scenic Hotel is situated in Queen Street, almost directly across the road from the Town Hall. The front desk is open 24/7. The room I had was spacious and had a full kitchen as well as a couple of comfortable chairs. The bed was good. Bathroom small but totally adequate with a good sized shower and no bath. My room was quiet and I slept well.

This hotel has great accommodation in the heart of CBD. The staff and the service is great. They have very nice apartments as well if you are visiting with kids. Plenty of shopping nearby. This hotel is highly recommended. Will see you guys soon. Keep up the good work especially Preet at the front desk.
