I made a reservation with free cancellation and had to cancel months in advance of arrival date. The hotel charged my credit card immediately, but it took 3 weeks after I cancelled to retrieve only a partial refund. After consideration of exchange rate variations and credit card charges, the hotel did not return the full amount as promised. Then, three...

we were offered a room on a last floor (i think it was 6th), but to get there you have to take an elevator to 5th floor and then walk up to the next floor by feet. It would be more or less ok if we didn't have a baby with a stroller! the location is nice, the rest is...

The apartments are very clean and contain everything you need for a long stay. The queen bed was so comfortable room serviced daily and breakfast supplied. The staff will bend over backwards to help you. They also will arrange transport to the airport at a very reasonable price.

Great location. Visitors to the city we soon found out the we could walk anywhere from VR. Service was efficient. Rooms not super clean, dusty and still had clothing under the bed from old guests, but we aren't too fussy, for the $$$ it was good value. Breakfast delivered every night. Would stay again.

Spacious, clean, comfortable 2 bedroom apartment. Great value for money and surprisingly quiet for the CBD. Our apartment had plenty of natural light with opening windows, the bathroom also had a washer/dryer. Easy stroll to Queen St or if you prefer a 2 min walk to the bus stop to catch the City Link bus. Convenience store and restaurants are...

The apartment facility is normal. Nothing to be highlighted. The wifi is not working at all. The only good thing about this apartment is the location. It is in the middle of town center, but it is noisy in the night. You can even hear the siren of ambulance loud & clear. One night stay is enough.

I was on a two week vacation. I booked this room in advance because it had a kitchenette and a washer & dryer. There are a couple of small markets on the same block, where you can pick up some groceries. I cut down my expenses for food, by making some sandwiches and heating up a can of soup in...

The only good in this hotel is reception team - always there, helpful and friendly. Rooms however are not good - dirty with thick layers of dust, stains etc. It looks new on the photos, but in reality it's a worn out hotel with very little effort made to maintain it properly.

Stayed for a week at VR Auckland City in May 2017. Check in was easy and I had booked a room through the entertainment card. My room had two bedrooms ( One queen and one single) a large bathroom and full kitchen. My room faced the back of the building and was very quiet. The breakfast was a nice little...
