Dear friends, we are visiting Auckland between the 1st and the 3rd of January '15 as last destination of our trip in NZ. We would like to opt for a motel in a quiet area at walking distance from the main attractions or at least close to some public means stops. I've already found a couple of interesting and affordable options, one in Ponsonby and the other one in Parnell. Which district would recommend? Or do you think we should consider some other area?
We are a couple in their early 30s, interested in visiting museum and going sightseeing.
