I expected a very basic hotel room and that's what we got. What I didn't expect was a poo stain in the toilet or a very dirty room which felt unhygienic. I didn't feel comfortable using anything or walking around bare foot. Very hard to get in as the front door is locked 24/7. We simply stated the booking name...

This had a self-rating of 3, which we booked through Qantas hotel deals. Look, the location was convenient, the bed was great and the shower hot, but the cooker smelt like a greasy kitchen of a 75 yr old bachelor, the carpet was grimy and I couldn't sit on the sofa; it was worse than a student share house! The...

Great location in CBD. Near to everything. Takes care of all amenities for extended stays. Wifi system is a bit odd as it is being rationed via a password instead of unlimited service. I also am not sure why you can't have two keys for multiple people in an apartment and you need the key fab to get out of...

The apartment location is the only positive. The entrance to the building and inside the building need major improvement and updated! Inside was like a hostel. Apartment was small, dusty, dirty, and damaged. Broken heater falling off the bathroom wall which they knew about but hadn't fixed. The staff were not always around and quite unhelpful. Beds were so soft...

Unfriendly staff at check in. Entire building looks dirty, old and unkept. (Not to mention the overwhelming stench of curry!) We get to the room, looks like it hasn't been cleaned since it opened! Walls covered in marks, bathroom mouldy with paint peeling off all of the walls & with god only knows what on the ceiling! Benches and tables...

The name Waldorf gives you an impression of a five star type accommodation but the Waldorf Apartments in Auckland is worse that a backpackers joint!!! There was no parking space and the was notification from the property about the same. I booked three rooms and one of them had a flush that didn't work and shower that just dripped. When...

I stayed for three nights during a brief trip to the North Island. The whole experience was hassle-free. Basically after collecting the keys, you're left to your own devices. Only a couple of minor points to mention about the room: * In order to flush the toilet, it was necessary to manoeuvre the cistern lid each time so that the...

I reserved one of the apartments here for a three night stay from the 29th of December until the 1st of January. There were numerous issues with the room and my partner and I found it so intolerable that we told management we had a change of plans (although we had not), and left the apartment after one night, and...

Great location in centre but a bit of a climb uphill from Queen St. A bit scruffy overall and could do with a major spruce up. Weird to have office in a room on second floor. Room was clean enough apart from table surface which was glass and filthy. Bed hard but okay. Wouldn't recommend for a special occasion but...
