Stayed here for a concert at the Civic Theatre, 5 mins walk, perfect!!! The place was spotlessly clean. $25 for parking and then the receptionist asked us for the car keys, in case the car needed moving, I don't think so.

We stayed only one night at this hotel before heading off on a cruise around New Zealand. It was not flash but quite OK for the price paid. Not much of a view, but you don't look at the view when you are asleep. You really need to keep the curtains closed as there are plenty of apartments facing the...

We arrived in Auckland on the first leg of our New Zealand vacation. We only stayed two nights but chose this hotel for convenience using skybus from airport and major sights. It did not disappoint, as a matter of fact, it was much better than expected based on some reviews. Very friendly, clean hotel, comfortable bed, quiet and you can't...

Stayed overnight after leaving cruise ship. Very good service - staff professional, friendly and helpful. Hotel itself has small hotel feel to it, spaces are well used and comfortable. Some furnishings such as carpet and armchair in room showing wear and need updating. Overall a very pleasant place to stay in Auckland, good central city location. Will stay again when...

The hotel is well located, very close to the sky tower. Restaurants and shopping are at walking distance from the hotel. We stayed in a family unit and the space was large and comfortable. If you are looking to stay in the city center, then Auckland city hotel is a good pick.

Friendly and helpful staff on reception, quick check in. We parked our car in the underground car park, bit of a tight squeeze but eventually succeeded. Our room was on 8th floor overlooking car park, looking out of the window seemed much higher! Large room with sofa, clean and tidy, reasonable size bathroom and comfortable beds. Free Wi-Fi. Hotel in...

We chose the hotel because of its location close to the bus station for the Inter City bus to the Bay of Islands. But we're really pleased to find the hotel staff very helpful and friendly, the hotel facilities good and the room comfortable.

I was supposed to have an overnight in Auckland, however thanks to a flight delay I only got to spend 4 hours in town. The Auckland City Hotel was a pleasant place to stay. The room was clean and very spacious. Same with the bathroom. If I was to complain would be about the bed - a bit too on...

Well positioned, with easy access to the Sky Tower, the SH1 and a 10 minute walk to the harbour. Comfortable, well equipped room in the Boutique part of the hotel, although no lift. The street is was in though was not particularly attractive.
