“Basic but practical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Hotel is walking distance from main attractions in the city, quiet clean and well equiped. Breakfast provided is filling and our stay was very pleasant.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Nice clean apartment - stayed there for 8 days with my partner and a friend for a wedding outside of Auckland. Walking distance from the Sky tower and not far from Queen St. 30 minutes to the Viaduct which is a must. Car parking is expensive at $20 dollars a day. But that is the price you will be pay in the city - you dont need a car if you are staying in auckland and you can catch the ferry or train to most other locations. Breakfast was basic but nice with the Mango Juice, Coffee, Museli bar and Muffin and occasionally a roll. The washing machine/dryer is good and you are supplied with powder every day although you dont have a a clothes dryer. Although the wifi is hard to get on - and check if you are given as part of your package

We stayed here for one night before we had to go to the airport. We booked a two bed apartment which was really large. It did overlook the police car park, but that didn't bother us too much.

The location is good we strolled to the harbour and its right near the Sky City Tower.

We didn't book parking and it was full so we had to find a car park as there is no street parking.

Good self contained apartments located down the road from the Casino and just a short walk down to Queen Street and to the Harbours. Comfortable clean rooms. Thanks for the upgrade!!!

The service was great at front desk with help with luggage and check in. We were upgraded for free from 1 bedroom to 2 bedroom apt on 6th floor. Clean and modern accommodation. Nice to have washer dryer in your unit! Really the only downside was the seedy location in the CBD. Ok if you close your eyes to walk the 3+ blocks to the sky tower. I would much prefer to stay along waterfront away from CBD next time. Choose wisely!

Dear KC Mom,

Thank you for your review. I am glad our team looked after you and provided a complimentary upgrade.

Our location is in the city center 5 minutes walk to the sky tower, I hope you will find something in Auckland closer to the water upon your next visit, please also be aware that it may cost upwards of double.

Thank you and safe travels,

Kind Regards

Udai Sarin
