“Functional and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

A reasonable hotel with a transient clientel. Stopped here for one night before picking up our camper. It was ok near the town centre and the rooms appeared to have been recently refurbished.
Enjoyed our stay and would recommend for one or two nights stopover, which is what appears tobe the norm.

stayed two nights, the room was tiny but it,s ensuite and clean and we didn,t stay there during the day anyway, so it doesn,t matter. its walking distance to the city and easy to get here from the airport which is very convenient. cheap as well. we had dinner in the small restaurant, it was fine. i would come back again and recommend to a friend who is after a good budget hotel.

Not the first time I’ve stayed here, and it won’t be the last. Kiwi International is my secret weapon for Auckland visits – back from the street in a quiet location, with free parking, and accessible to everything – the airport shuttle, the motorway, public transport as well as K Road just around the corner for nightlife and restaurants.

The rooms are small but tidy, housekeeping is of a good standard and its well priced – if you are looking for a place to base yourself while up in Auckland, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than this.

Room Tip: As the hotel is set back from the street all rooms are more or less equally quiet.

i thought that the rate that i paid for a single room w/o bathroom was good, especially for a good location in a big city. i stayed before and after a group tour of new zealand.
the room was small but the bed was very comfortable. there was a tiny desk and chair and a sink and a mitrror but no closet and no place to put the suitcase except on the floor. so the room was only good for sleeping. i had a second floor room in the rear away from trafffic noise so it was quiet. no fan or air so i had to open the window to cool down the room.
the bar and restaurant are not cheap- go elsewhere.
airport bus stops right in front, so take it. it comes every 15 minutes or so and costs $26 return, much cheaper than a taxi.
good area on the main street- lots of shops and restaurants.
staff were helpful- let me make a free international call when my credit card wouldn't work in the pay phone. and they have luggage lock-up.
would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night before flying from the North to the South Island. Great location, simple yet well stocked rooms, across the street from the Air Bus Public Transit to the airport. Would stay here again!
