The room and bathroom was still okay, but there is no free wifi which not convenient for those foreign travelers! The room are quite small, which we had not much space to put our medium size luggages.

a good location but tired, dirty and generally a poor experience. It is very well priced, the bed was comfortable and the linen clean. no extra's in the room - no hair dryer or iron - and even though it says reception will answer the phone they never did so I wasn't able to ask if they could bring these...

I have never stayed somewhere that was in such poor condition, in NZ. The corridor was dirty and smelt like old sweat and cooking odour. The room had a shared lounge all the bedrooms had there own locked door and 2 bathrooms which your key fitted to, I think if I had been travelling alone I would have been sharing...

The hotel is a 15-20 minutes walk to and from the CBD! Which makes it an ideal location. The apartments are self contained, but with limited utensils. The room is good for couples and solo travelers. The TV wasn't working in my room. However, there is wifi which you will need to pay for. The bed was comfortable and rooms...

Comfortable, bed good. Close the motorway so some road noise, not a big issue if you are a sound sleeper like myself. Parking on the street limited but car park close by. Reasonably priced Asian cafe on the ground floor. Would stay again.

I had a small apartment with kitchen. It was comfortable and had all the amenities one could wish. Location is rather good with just a 10 mins walk to Queen street. Auckland is an expensive city to stay, but this place offers affordable rooms. No free wi-fi.

Dirty, smelly room and very noisy due to the highways. We had 12 air fresheners in our room... it seems they tried to cover the smell - but failed. Disgusting shower curtain. We've been to much better and cheaper places.

Affordable accommodation almost in the city centre with limited parking spaces. The room was basic but with all facilities we needed (a kitchenette and a fridge). There was a mistake with our booking, we had to change the room but we were granted with free wifi for inconvenience, so it was ok. Tea and coffee available in the room. Some...

Stayed here for two nights for a course. Basic, clean & tidy. I arrived late due to bus breakdown, wasn't really a problem being checked in late. Toilet seat broken. Shower was great. Has a small convenience shop next to it

This was great location and clean and friendly staff. I was worried as I had read the reviews and thought what was I on for.. But was presently surprised.. Reasonably priced and not a far walk to town. Definitely would stay again .
