Booked here as a place to rest our heads on New Years. Perfect for what we wanted. Reasonable price/room size fine/helpful staff. Not the flashest place and I wouldn't want to stay here for comfort or if holidaying. A little run down but you get what you pay for. Would go back if I needed this type of place to...

We had 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was ok. The hotel is conveniently located but the area is by no means attractive. A five block, downhill walk will get you to the viaduct/harbour area with many eateries and you are not far from town. The 4 lane street out the front leads easily to the motorway...

The hotel is fairly centrally located which is why we had booked it. However, they have a concept of a cold breakfast which they deliver the night before - which is exactly the same everyday ! The internet does not work at all, asking for extra blankets/working hairdryer can drive you absolutely insane. Only stay at the hotel if you...

The first thing I have to mention is the name of this place, as trying to find it is confusing. I say that because there is a hotel right across the road called Auckland City Hotel. Whilst this place is called Auckland City Oaks, nowhere on the building, the doors or signage is the word "oaks" or a picture of...

Not happy with the hotel at all. A view room was promised but gave another room which is still Ok - compromised. But the smell inside the room is not good at all. Avoid it even though the location of the hotel is nice.
