Stayed for (2) nights on business and found it centrally located to Queen Street and easy walk to restaurants and bars. Staff very helpful especially housekeeping (thank you Sabrina for keeping our room clean and for being so friendly) and the young staffer in the house bar who got my lunch for me. Rooms present value for money.

Loved the convenient location. Hotel was good. Service was great. Easy to walk to town and to the viaduct where the city comes to life. Cosy rooms. Take the room with the view of the Sky Tower. You might catch someone doing the bungee.

Stayed here primarily for the Coldplay concert. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet option is awesome. This hotel is located centrally enough if you want easy access to the CBD. There are convenience stores within easy reach and a Countdown metro supermarket 5 minutes walk away. I will stay here again

Great location in walking distance to the Viaduct to bars and restaurants, short walk to ferry to Waiheke island (highlight of trip). Staff professional and friendly. Comfortable bed and fantastic buffet breakfast. Enjoyable stay.

This hotel is well located in downtown Auckland close to shops and restaurants, and a 10 minute walk down hill to the harbour area. We stayed four nights both as individual guests and as part of a travel group. The hotel certainly caters for large numbers of groups and does a good job. The staff are efficient and friendly.

As usual the service was amazing. The first room I was given unfortunately seemed to have a problem with the drains but the staff moved me within minutes. A fresh room and lots of apologies. Only challenge - the new room did not have the view I wanted.

I had questions that I couldn't answer from their website and Inez was extremely prompt and thorough in her responses. We arrived at about 9am and my wife can't sleep on a plane. When I mentioned this they allowed us to check-in early which was very much appreciated. And, for a small fee we were able to do a late...
