Stayed at Auckland City Oaks during the first week of November and it was my first time ever I'm Auckland. Pros; Hotel was cheap and right in the center of the city which was very nice having. The hotel had a fairly nice continental breakfast delivered to the room the night before. Nothing to get full over but it was...

This is the second time we've stayed at City Oaks and once again it's been excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and modern and if you book in advance you can get a room for around £50 a night which is far cheaper than anywhere else in Auckland City. The only things I would say is it's about...

I stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It as perfect for my purposes of attending a conference at Rendezvous. Easy walk to anywhere in CBD. Comfortable and clean. Pleasant staff. Good kitchen facility. Enjoyed breakfast being delivered each evening, a bonus I hadn't expected.

Overall a disappointing stay with the Oaks. We were checked into a small studio room. The room was "well worn", and it didn't look like the carpets had been vacuumed and had plenty of stains. We asked for the carpets to be cleaned on our way out of the hotel the next morning - they were vacuumed upon return, but...

I stayed at the Oaks for 17 days in a 1 bedroom classic. I really enjoyed my stay, and the unit itself was perfect for me. I was on the 5th floor with my room facing Hobson St. The décor was nice, and I had no issues with cleanliness; my room was serviced daily. My only minor issue I had...

The hotel rooms were fine and the location was very central. The hotel room and bathroom was clean and well kept. There were a few things that just were not up to snuff - sheets were torn, garbage was not cleared when we arrived. I would stay again but this is not going to be your top end type of...

The hotel is relatively modern with good decor. Cleanliness was reasonable but the bathroom needed attention. It is centrally located so most central city attractions and restaurants are within walking distance which saves on driving and parking in Auckland CBD which I find difficult and frustrating at the best of times. The hotel is also well located for access to...

Nice hotel to stay at for a short period, would not recommend staying here for a long time unless you have very busy day itineraries planned, as quite small rooms. Good facilities, quite close to everything you need in Auckland. Would stay here again, but only for a short stay.
