I had a few days in Auckland before taking off on an extended overseas trip, and needed somewhere I could do some last minute work and also somewhere close to the AK79 reunion gig. This place worked out great.
The one complaint I do have is that I did not know about the $25 a day parking charge until it came time to check out - luckily I only had a car for one day. Other than that, the location was just great, the bed was comfy, the TV was shiny, the bathroom was clean, the staff was friendly.
What else could you ask for? Oh, I know: make the wireless internet a decent price. 60 cents a minute is too much. Luckily, there is an Esquires coffee shop just down the road with free internet, and a very cheap and good internet cafe just round the corner from the hotel, towards Queen Street.
