best place to stay in rotorua

location, room facilities and friendly staff
Dymphna L. Groups Malaysia, April 22, 2015
Comfortable, very pleasant and helpful staff

The bed was very comfortable! The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Location is strategic, a walk away from shops.
My stay here had been extremely pleasant. I love how comfortable the bed was. The staff, Sue was very pleasant, kind and helpful from the very first time since we checked-in to the very last day. She even gave me a 10% discount coupon for Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland when she found out that I am heading there for the day. The shower room and toilet are clean. There's shower gel provided in the shower room too, which is very thoughtful and unexpected. There's laundry facility, common room and kitchen too. Suitable for a short and long stay.

Good location

Location, staff, location.
It was okay but definitely not for couple. I know it's a backpackers place but when I book the private double I thought it would be close enough like in a hotel. But it's just a queen size bed in a very small room. The wall is too thin That I can hear the next room conversations. But the location is good and the staffs are friendly. Also it was quiet clean.

small, very small, "cozy"

The room was so small we could barely stand after getting our luggage in. The hotel was clean but the decor has 70s - 80s vibe. The fridge in common area is not accessible after 2230. Wi-Fi is limited to 200 mb per guest.

Small rooms

Small rooms, but clean.
Nice location. Small rooms were a bit cramped. Weren't allowed store our bags on check out for an hour! Also was refused access to kitchen to make some breakfast after checking out! Man working in hotel was very helpful

couldn't have asked for better!

staff, location, facilities
Highly recommend if you're visiting Rotorua. The team there offer a warm welcome and go that extra mile to make sure your stay is a great experience. 2 mins from the I-site and really good location to explore the area from.
Michelle K. Solo travelers United States of America, July 26, 2014
