Very nice hotel, clean and comfortable. My impression was that it primarily caters to business travelers. I LOVED the bed, so comfortable. (Full disclosure, it was our first night in the country so I was extremely tired from traveling). The buffet breakfast was also outstanding; I'm glad we decided to include it in our budget. Would have been perfect except...

My wife and I have stayed at Rydges from 26th to 29th March. We found the staff very helpful and courteous. Rydges is located downtown, a short walk from the harbour, and surrounded with many great places to explore and to get great food and drinks. Our room was on the third floor, well away from the elevators, so it...

It doesn't look fancy from the outside but we were very happy with everything about the hotel. The staff are all efficient and friendly, always looking out to see if they can help you. Jessica and Tatiana were particularly helpful on the front desk. The concierge service is also great. We loved our big room, 1012 with a view of...

Well located hotel in central Auckland. Excellent restaurant with good food and service. Only negative is that in both our stays we had to ask twice to get room service done as they tend to not do rooms to late in the day unless you are only staying one night.

We arrived from a long overnight flight about 10 AM and they had a room ready for us. The hotel is located very close to the downtown district and is within easy walking distance. The room was nice and clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our second stay at this hotel.

The Rydges Hotel in Auckland has very attractive and large rooms. The hotel is conveniently located to many restaurants, shops, and bars – all within walking distance. I particularly liked the glass desk and the leather desk chair in the hotel room. The room was situated across from an apartment or condo complex and that was fun for people viewing;...

We stayed in the Auckland Rydges for 3-nights and enjoyed its comfortable relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, and in all honesty, the most incredible breakfast buffet I have even experienced. The hotel is in a great location, 2-minutes to the Sky Tower, 10-minutes walk to the Viaduct Basin and a few minutes to Queen Street. The breakfast...

We started off really well with "Varun" helping us out of our cab, getting us checked in and personally bringing our luggage to our room. All good. The hotel is well-located, in fact a couple of blocks from Queen Street which is a major shopping, restaurant, etc. hub. Unfortunately, when we asked the Concierge where to go for exactly those...

Thank you willowtree155019 for taking the time to share your experience. Whilst Varun was thrilled to receive your comments the remaining team members on concierge were disappointed to learn they had let you down. I have followed up with them in relation to the disparity of the taxi charges, the lower cost option is not one we often recommend given...

This hotel is just round the corner from the Sky Tower and within a short walk to central Auckland with several eateries also in the area. We were on the 7th floor facing a block of flats. As this is a tall square building surrounded by other buildings, none of the rooms have a decent view. The room was large,...

This Hotel use to be my go to hotel in Auckland - staying here more than 10 times. However, standards have dropped dramatically. We stayed in the Premier Harbour King Room for two nights which was costly for a NZ hotel at 1100 NZD but wanted a quality stay with my family. The room we were given was a small...
