Very basic at 2 stars , okay for a base close to the cbd. Stayed for 2 nights at the end of our trip. Noise carries through the rooms and halls not helpful if you wanted an early night.

Researching various options near the airport, I didn't actually like anything specific and decided to find something closer to the CBD (center of the city). That's how I got to Kiwi International - very close to the center and for a...

Stayed here for one night in an ensuite single room and found it very comfortable. I wanted a place to stay near the CBD which wasn't too expensive and the Kiwi International fit the bill perfectly. Check in was easy and quick, I arrived at around 7am and was able to leave my luggage at the hotel until my room...

The Kiwi International's location at the top of Queen street, Auckland's main drag and bordering K road, home to Auckland's drag queens (but slowly gentrifying) is a cheap and cheerful budget option in the center of town. Rooms are small but clean and coffee and tea are provided.Down town attractions are within walking distance and K road has plenty of...
