Positive Reviews

Clean rooms with comfortable beds.

Guests reported that the rooms were clean and tidy and that the beds were very comfortable. Visitors who stayed in the upgraded suites and multi-room apartments added that the kitchens are very well-appointed and well-stocked for self-catering.

Employees are friendly and accommodating.

The hotel staff received high praise from reviewers for their friendliness, efficiency, and attentiveness to the needs of travellers. The restaurant fare and daily breakfast buffet were also rated highly, with people saying that the morning meal is a cut above the continental affair typically found at chain hotels.

Perfect location for exploring Auckland.

The location in the city centre makes this establishment an ideal base for enjoying all there is to see and do in Auckland without needing a car. The hotel is within easy walking distance to downtown attractions, local shopping and dining, and the harbour.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are a bit cramped.

Although comfortable, the rooms were said to be a bit compact. The standard twin rooms in particular were described as a tight squeeze for couples, and guests stated that the bathrooms were a bit cramped as well.

Dated building brings some comfort issues.

Reviewers reported that the building is starting to show its age and could use a facelift. Specifically cited were stained carpets, worn furniture, and dinged-up walls. Others added that the rooms have poor noise insulation.

Does not really live up to 5-star standards.

A number of visitors felt that the hotel did not quite live up to the standards they were expecting. The amenities were said to be somewhat basic and more in line with what one would expect from a three-star establishment.
