    Passing through”

    The disappointing portion of this review is primarily due to internet (wi-fi) which was slow while only allowing only 300 MB per day, barely enough to check a few emails. Internet (wi-fi) never enough to communicate with family or friends via video (Skype, FaceTime) or cruise FB when there is inclimate weather. My room was VERY small but as a single person I made due, albeit barely. For a female I think this would be a bit disappointing since there was no counter space in the bathroom to set anything. All this being said, the room was clean, the staff nice and helpful, the location very good in my opinion. Father Ted's Irish bar close by (same block), with good food and drink, theater and food (mostly Asian) court across the street along with other eateries and shopping. Another great thing about the location is the "Sky Bus" to and from the airport is close @ hand. BTW, this is my second stay @ this facility and I would stay again if traveling through NZ.

    Central Location; Helpful staff”

    The place is easy to find and was very close to our conference (SkyTower) and the Civic Theater but not as expensive. There was no parking in the area because of the construction right in front of the hotel but this could not be helped. Access to wifi in our room was limited to 100Mb per day and ran out more quickly. The staff were helpful and readily provided advice/recommendations when asked. The tap was not as nice...with one tap for cold and another tap for hot water - we preferred one tap wherein temperature could be regulated. The noise from people on the streets or in the pub were still heard inside the room even if we were already on the 6th floor on some days, were not the best but was tolerable. Overall, we liked our stay at this place.

    location ”

    Perfect location .. .. everything is within walking distance, if you are ok with walking .. 15 min walk to the docks, ferry, britomart bus/ train station ... plus buses on queens etc.. Granted lots of hills but that is Auckland in general. We felt the location was great and everything was walkable .. it was also easy to take the bus or ferry ( $13.50 for 2 ) to Devenport, or bus to Sylvia Park or Mission Bay.

    Very good customer service. we booked a room with balcony but due to some booking issues from the service provider we ended up some other room without balcony. But when we told this issue to the staff, they did their best to help us, to approach the service provider and later gave us our booked room with balcony. They were extremely helpful and supportive.

    Strategic location but noisy”

    Compact Double Room: Strategic location enable to access Sky Tower, Sky Bus hub, supermarket, and etc easily. The noises from people on the street and the construction site can be heard during the night although staying at 5th floor. No air conditioning, microwave, and refrigerator as stated in Agoda. Overall, it's value for money on the strategic location.

    I had to pay for an upgrade to get a room with air-conditioning and a fridge. The upgraded room was compact but fine though I wonder what the originally booked standard room was like. Can't fault the location.

    I'll take this hotel any day”

    If you're a budget traveller, I guess hostels would be the first thing in your mind. But after weeks of hostels - sharing rooms, bathrooms, and not to mention lugging stuff on places without elevators or too far from places you should be ....This hotel is a God-send. I tried two budget hotels and hostels in Auckland, but after trying this amidst the not so great rating, this will now be my go-to hotel in Auckland. Sure it's not five star but hey I'll take this over hostels. Location is dead center. It's near everything. What I love is that it's near the Intercity bus station - for the tours. The room maybe small (I got a compact double) but it works for me. My own bed and bathroom. Price is ok. Moreover, it's clean. Breakfast is 14.50 nzd for continental buffet which is better than toast and peanut butter. They have free wifi but after you used up the allotted mb for the day, you have to buy. If you don't use that much like me, no big deal. Staff is ok. They will do their best to help you. My only complaint is that they should soundproof some rooms cuz it can get noisy as you're near a busy road. But overall, I like this place. I plan a lot of visits to NZ and this hotel will be included in those.

    Travel with mum in March, stay in Compact Twin Room, room 506. 1. Environment is ok, however the mattress is too soft. Choose other hotel if need harder a bit mattress. 2. Kettle is provided in the room, however, there is no way to check the cleanliness inside the kettle. We choose not to make any hot drinks although they provide coffee and tea packets.

    loca,tion, helpfull staff, quality of breakfast

    our stay was pleasant,the only thing i could be negative about was the small size of the rooms, however had we wanted we could have had an upgrade for a small extra charge, but did not take the offer as we were only staying 2 nights, staff very friendly helpfull and polite. Perfect location, hop on hop off bus stop across road, bars restaurants on doorstep, main shopping area around corner, bus station just one block away. Breakfast well worth the money

    Location of hotel was central, Service was great, and rooms were clean

    It was a great hotel. The location was central, everything was in walking distance. The service was great, though the power went out one day and we had to take the stairs up to the room, six floors. That was a little scary. Other than that, it was a great stay

    We only stayed one night. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The staff were great. A good location for the Civic Theatre. We didn't have any meals at the hotel, so can't comment on food. Have put 3 for food, but we didn't have any. The survey wouldn't continue without putting something.

    This was a nice hotel to stay. Located just 10 min away from Britomart , 2 min walk to Queen Street, 2 min walk to theAirbus Express Stop, and within walking distance to many of the city atractios. The staff was nice and helpful. The room has many amenities such as: iron & iron board, heater, coffee maker and Only downside was complimentary cofee and tea every day, etc. Only downside was the size,rooms are tiny, but for one person was perfect.for me.

    location is the best, Queenstreet is just around the corner and sirport shuttle is too .

    Very agreeable staff , I extended my stay for one night,they kept the same rate and asked me to pay when I checked out, think it is typical kiwi style ,too. A bit noisy though due to the bar downstairs , but if you avoid weekend , it should be fine . The room is samll but cozy, if the appliances like the heat blower could be newer and the shower curtain could be longer enough, things would be perfect .
