Great for travelling with friends”

Having separate sleeping areas was so nice for traveling with a friend. And there was a kitchenette and some small breakfast foods were provided each evening for the next day, which was very nice. The location was fantastic and it was very clean. Staff was super friendly and helpful when we asked for some information. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Auckland.

VR hotel Auckland City, is a perfect place to stay because it is very accessible to the nearby tourist spots, transportation and restaurants. The hotel is very neat and provides all your home needs. Moreover, the staff named Ms.Yarshna was very considerate, kind and very helpful. I left my phone at the uber car and she helped me sincerely all the way until I was able to get my cellphone at the grab office. Thumbs up! 5 star rating!!! Will definitely go back to this hotel.
