Just spent six nights here on business and must say it always feels like home! It's a bit pricey and some rooms are a bit tired but this is more than made up by an awesome location and some of the best staff I've come across. Will definitely be back.

Spent whole night with lorries outside picking up bins containing bottles (there is a pub across the road) and making plenty of noise. Consequently had the most awful night's sleep. Room was nice enough but would I stay here again - not likely !

Thank you for choosing to stay at CityLife on your recent trip to Auckland. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused to you by the external noise -I agree this must have been frustrating.

Great location on main shopping street, but set back and quiet. Very helpful staff p Who met our needs. The hotel is modern and very convenient to the waterfront, so we could easily be ferry tourists around the harbor.

We loved the great bedding. The staff were fantastic on arrival despite dealing with a small area for cars and pick-ups. Our luggage was whisked away to a room immediately.

The Hotel was clean and extremely convenient. We had plenty of room to spread out. WiFi was free but meals were way overpriced (reason why I didn't give it a 5 rating), it was easier and more cost efficient to eat out. The staff was very friendly & assisted in every way possible. The wonderful location made it easy for...

During my travels to Auckland this is where I stayed most often (or rather where the corporate travel agent booked me into most often), I assume this means the price is relatively low.
