Auckland City Oaks Serviced Apartments Rooms

Guests staying at the Auckland City Oaks Serviced Apartments can choose between one-bedroom apartments with classic and executive options, two-bedroom apartments, and two types of suite, the sweet suite and the sweet suite park and eat. The apartments have queen beds, double-glazing, air conditioning and each guest gets a complimentary continental breakfast. Entertainment in apartments consists of a 32-inch LCD TV set with iPod docking. Executive apartments also include a rollaway bed if needed, though this carries an additional charge, and the bedroom is larger than the classic equivalent, with bedroom and living area separated. The two-bedroom apartment can accommodate up to five guests if a rollaway bed is used, and both bedrooms have queen beds. The sweet suite is a studio accommodation and makes a pleasant, attractive and more spacious alternative to the standard hotel room, containing a full kitchen along with a queen bed and living area in an open plan arrangement. The idea of the park and eat option on sweet suites is that guests can just drive in to the complex, park their car, sleep and wake up to breakfast the following morning. There are room and laundry services for all apartments and there are rooms and facilities for handicapped guests.

Great hotel all around.

The staff was absolutely incredible. Breakfast was brought in the evening in the room every night, so we could have snacks at night and it was enough for mornings too. Only about 10 min walk from the bus stop. Don't buy return ticket to the bus, hotel has special rates to airport for $45. I would stay there again.

the Good: Safe, good night's sleep, great kitchen and laundry facilities. the Bad: ' breakfast pack' was 1yogurt, 1granola bar, 1banana, 1 slice of cake, 1box juice. x2people...no problem with the breakfast, just that they frequently forgot to give it to me, and i had to call down to remind them to send. Asked for wake up call, I got it 1/2 hour LATE.

A perfect base to discover Auckland

Just as the title says, this hotel had everything we needed for our 3 nights' stay. Location is great, walking distance to Queen street area and public transport options including the airport express bus. The room was clean, well equipped with kitchen appliances, even a washing machine. Free wifi connection was provided to ensure communication with those we had to leave home:) The suplied continental breakfast is very basic, but there are numerous options nearby including restaurants and supermarkets.

Auckland, November 23-26, 2011

Clean and comfortable. Would stay here again. NOT a luxury hotel at all. Our suite (G07) had a wonderful view of the back of the police station. If you want on-site parking, specify when making your reservation, or it will be unavailable. Three blocks to nearest ATM. Staff is friendly and willing, but not terribly knowledgeable.

Not All That It Seems

This hotel is located in the middle of Auckland CBD which was distance to everything. The room was decent but was given a 2 bedroom standard instead of our one bedroom executive. The front desk service was not very helpful with this matter or others. We asked for a taxi to take us to the Whale and Dophin Safari tour. We were told they knew nothing of this as many other places. We found it after a 15 minute walk straight down the street. The front desk did not know where anything was. Also, the room service was not good. At times, they never came into the room. We had to call numerous times to get someone to clean the room. And only once did they clean the room meaning vaccuming, mopping, cleaning the bathroom. I do not recommend this hotel unless the front service learns more about their own city.

Pretty good

Good location-walking distance to ferries, sky tower/casino. Right next door to police station, so felt safe, altho there is a mission a couple of blocks down-had no problems. Neighborhood fairly good, overall. Large room-2 bedrooms, nice balcony. Staff was very helpful-excellent. Free internet in lobby, which is rare in NZ
