Have you ever been to prison? Well now you don't have to! Just stay in one of the cell-like rooms in the Kiwi International Hotel and you will feel like you have woken up in the 'clink'. Don't take this the wrong way, the room was clean, inexpensive, had a sink and tea/coffee facilities. It was just tiny and grey...

Best thing was the airport bus drops right on hotel doorstep, but we left on a bus to go South and the bus station is a good mile down the road - easy walk and we had a meal half way. All down hill and easy enough to wheel Hotel is fine and acceptable .... we arrived during happy hour,...

The location couldn't be beaten. Parking is safe and costs $NZ20 I generally go for the double with ensuite at $NZ90 Beds are very comfortable. Easy walk to everything in the CBD, particularly the colourful K Rd, the connoisseurs' delights of Ponsonby Rd and Viaduct Harbour. I've never had the slightest reason to be afraid for my safety walking round...

We had a double room with bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, for five nights. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and quiet. The hotel staff were helpful, and were expecting us when we arrived at 6am, as we had pre-arranged with them. Our room was on the first floor, towards the end of the corridor. We ate in their...

I strongly advise avoiding this hotel unless you like the idea of potentially dying in your bed if there was a fire; all of the corridor/main stairwell smoke stop doors I could see throughout the hotel were held open with illegal door holders, even though each door carried a sign saying "Smoke control door - PLEASE KEEP CLOSED". When some...

Hi there. Your review is currently being dealt with by hotel management. It is noted that you committed theft by stealing all of our doorstops and holding them in your possession. Our hotel policy is that all corridor doors are kept open during the day whilst our cleaning and maintenance teams are operating. Once they leave in the afternoon our...

Chose this place cos it was convenient and in the city but it is very run down and definitely needs some cleaning and maintenance. The bedsheets were aweful and there was so much dust on the wall skirting. The elevator needs to be rid of.

Hi Phoebe. Thank you for placing a review. We have limited carpark spaces and no control over that so we apologise if that made you upset. We charge all bookings in advance in accordance with our hotel policy. Again please ensure you understand the terms of booking before you make a confirmed reservation in order to avoid disappointment.
