We were recommended to this hotel by friends in brisbane and they were right, it was in a great location and very handy to everything we wanted to do in auckland. We wanted to go to parnell and the auckland city was really good to duck in and out of. We would definitely stay again.

The location of this classic hotel in Auckland is perfect. You can find near this hotel almost everything to have a nice trip. There is a problem in whole Auckland about the internet connection. In this hotel (as it is in almost all hotels in the area) the internet connection is poor and expensive. The facilities of the hotel are...

This is quite adequate accommodation at a reasonable price considering it is a short walk from the Sky Tower and casino as well as other downtown attractions. Our room was clean and had standard hotel decor. The air conditioner was not working and despite making the reservation months before for a couple, the Deluxe room had single beds.Staff were helpful...

The units were comfortable & clean but could use a little tlc cleaning of carpets,etc. Rooms on the 10'th floor still experienced street/traffic noise, as well...

The internet is so slow as to be useless. It's especially annoying since it's not free. On top of that, you can only use one device at a time so it's no good if two people, let alone a family, want to use the Internet. On trying to check out because of these problems, I was told one bad to...
