I stayed here for two nights, the rooms were clean and the restaurant was amazing for both breakfast and dinner but what really made the stay was the friendly staff!! Thank you for making the stay enjoyable.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our month's tour of NZ. The hotel is modern and our room large and well equipped. We had asked for a city view room and had an excellent view of the Sky Tower! Staff were all polite and helpful but we found the concierge team particularly helpful. We used the...

I had my wedding reception at Rydges Auckland CBD Rooftop Terrace on 3.3.2017 and found the venue and service to be of very high quality. My partner and I found the wedding package to be reasonably priced when comparing to other areas and as most of our guests were travelling from Australia, found the venue to be central and it...

The hotel is centrally located and about 5 minute walk to the high street (main street down town) - close to sky tower if you like Casino's. Maybe 15 minutes walking to the harbor. Some great restaurants around. Breakfast is a little disappointing, but if you want great coffee they have a coffee bar in the lobby open in the...

We were passing through for one night only, the hotel is in a good location, helpful staff especially the concierge. Rooms clean and modern facilities. Didn't have meals or breakfast here so can't comment on the food.

The hotel is close to many attractions, the room is small but comfortable. There was only a shower and no bath which was disappointing. There is a restaurant and bar in the lobby area, however there are many great places to eat close by. It was adequate but not great compared to the Rydges in Wellington which was lovely.

The Rydges is located a block from the Sky Tower - so we could always tell what direction to go to get back to the hotel. The area was OK - but not super. Our view was into a lower end apartment complex. Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. The sink was outside the bathroom - so made it...

I am a regular visitor to Auckland and thought I would try this hotel for a bit of a change. Rydges Auckland reminded me of an airport hotel- clean , modern, comfortable bed but the room was way too small for anything other than an overnight visit.I booked the highest category room which was nominated as a premium harbour view...
