Hi, I'll be in Auckland July4-6 and was looking for recommendations on where to stay. I don't plan on getting a car, so someplace where I can walk to restaurants and have access to transportation. I was looking for something moderately priced (less than US$100) and safe for a woman traveling solo. My return flight is on a Tue 1:30PM, so hopefully doesn't have to be near the airport. Also, would you suggest one of the tours of just hopping on and off the bus? Thanks in advance for any tips.
