Nice apart hotel close to sky tower and harbour

We stayed for 2 nights. The reception is welcoming. Comfortable bed, all the facility e.g. cooking and laundry. They provide a complimentary supper pack each night. However it is cheese and onion sandwich every night! Comes with a large muffin and a fruit drink.

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.

Sitä saa mitä tilaa

Tuo Aucklandin hotelli oli sijainniltaan ihan ok, mutta muuten tuohon hintaan ei voi paljon odottaa. Huone oli pieni, tosin suhteellisen siisti. Ilmastointi pelasi jotenkin, mutta onneksi ei ollut tosi hellettä. Henkilökunta oli kaikkea muuta kuin palvelumyönteinen, mutta mitä muuta voi noilta (ehkä) intialaisilta odottaakaan. Englannista ei saanut juuri mitään selvää, eikä paljon vaivaiduttu edes toistamaan.

Sehr preiswertes Familienhotel

Das Apartmenthaus liegt an einer stark befahrenen Aufallstrasse, umweit von Zentrum der Stadt - bei geschlossenen Fenstern kein Problem. In 15 Minuten Fussmarsch ist man am Wasser. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet mit kompletter Küche inkl. Spülmaschine, sowie einem Badezimmer inkl. anständigem Waschtrockner, was uns sehr gelegen kam. Das Haus strahlt keinen 4 Sterne Charme aus, bietet aber guten Komfort. Das in die Wohnung gelieferte "Frühstück" sollte nicht wirklich so bezeichnet werden - es ist ein kleiner Snack mit Kuchen, einem Stück Obst, einem Joghurt und einem Nektar. Der Fliesenboden im Eingang und Bad der Wohnung war klebrig, der Tepichboden fleckig: somit insgesamt ein leicht schmudelliger Eindruck - für NZ-Verhältnisse aber durchaus ok. Insgesamt ist das Haus empfehlenswert für Familien, die eine grosse Wohnung für sich haben und kaum Hotel-Dienstleistungen in Anspruch nehmen wollen. In der engen Tiefgarage - nur für PKW - kann ein Platz für 25$ pro Tag gemietet werden.
