“Great family apartment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2011

We stayed here with our 5 and 3 year old children for 4 nights upon arriving in Auckland and 1 night before leaving NZ. The rooms were clean, beds comfy, and bathrooms, towels etc well serviced. There's quite a lot of building around the area, so leaving the windows and doors open made for a bit of noise at night (though our preference as I hate air conditioning). The hotel website has clear information on parking (paid around corner), room size etc - not 5 star but they make no claims to have everything. We had our own portable dvd player for the kids as none is provided, but I believe you can hire one from reception (NZ TV not really geared for little kids).
There's a great Vietnamese restaurant at the bottom of the hotel that has mains for around $10, and across the road is a terrific pizza/pasta place "Pizza Fresco" that has really good woodfire pizzas and homemade pasta sauces that the kids loved. There's also the very handy Countdown supermarket just down the road and several good (but pricey) cafes for a decent coffee. The gym is ok, has all the main equipment.
It's about a 15-20 min pleasant walk down to the Viaduct and slightly less to the ferry terminals. The motorways are quite handy with exits/entrances not far away.
I'd definitely recommend.

We ( a family of 4)arrived at Stadium Waldorf Apartments hotel after midnight after a 24hr flight. The reception staff were excellent in giving us an efficent & quick check-in and acssess to the car park area. Our luggage was taken to our 2 bedroom apartment very promptly and we were amazed at size and quality of the apartment. Lovely comfy lounge area and kitchen ,full internal laundry, veranda- two spacious bedrooms . nice spacious bathrooms- .. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times and very polite. The Apartment Hotel is very central for all amenities of Auckland - restaurants, 24 hours supermarket ( 300 m away)shops, bus station, all attractions within easy walking distance. The inroom high speed internet was speedy and very reasonably priced- $NZ25 per week!!!.However everything .was in a perfect condition in the apartment .The rate was a bargain about NZ$110 per day!!!.Thank you for a lovely welcome stay to NZ

The location of the Waldorf is minutes from Queen Street but far enough away to be relatively quiet at night. There are plenty of places to eat and drink within a short walk from the Waldorf.

I booked a one bed apartment for my stay. I didnt expect two balconies (both of which had views of water).

I would recommend this property for anyone who wants to have the benefit of an apartment with the comfort of a hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room on a high floor

Just as previous posters have said, this establishment is ACE.
We had a two bed apartment on a high floor, it was well serviced and had plenty of storage.
4 of us stayed for 3 nights.
Reception check in was fast and we were given the use of broadband for $8 for the stay.
On check out the new counter staff said it was a mistake, but he stood by the charge.
That's the way to deal with a customer.
Kitchens are well equipped and the whole atmosphere of the place was nice.

I would recommend this place to anyone----ozz1

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

We arrived at Apartment late after arriving on a very late flight into Auckland. The person on reception was not very pleasant. The apartments were lovely and clean and we had a two bedroom apartment. The kitchen was well equipped with two hot plates and small oven full size fridge and small dishwasher. The only trouble was there were no tea bags but plenty of coffee. Beds very comfortable and clean. Full washing machine and dryer in the bathroom. Went to the supermarket on the Saturday morning and asked for teabags on the way out and they were in out room when we arrived back. Supermarket is just about a 5 minute walk from the apartments. We were evactuated on the Saturday night due to a false alarm staff were not very good in keeping us informed and the fire trucks took about 20-25 minutes to attend but this was not the fault of the apartments. Very friendly staff on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday and the person on reception early on Tuesday morning when we checked out. I would surely recomend this accommodation and would stay here again when we are in Auckland.

Room Tip: Very clean and close to city

My two sons,12 and 14- year old, my wife and I, a family of 4, started our holiday trip at Auckland. This was our first visit in the north island. This review was written after we finished our 9 days visit to NZ. (Last year, we spent 9 days in the south island.)
Of all around 10 hotels/motels we had experienced . Stadium Waldorf apartment is the most cost effective.
The apartment locates near city center, and waterfront,,just a short walk to countdown supermarket,and some restaurants. We were in a large family room which was clean,spacious,modern furnished, kitchenette with complete equipment.,a small balcony with fantastic city view. All other things were also good. eg beds,toilet,sitting room.
This was not the best room we had in this trip, but when comparing to the cost. I score it 95/100
Anyway, there were two minor things we disliked.
1.The space for temporary parking in front of the hotel was fully occupied when we arrived at the apartment. We had to drive around the bulilding to find the parking area. Eventually we found two separate parking area,where we didn't know which one was belonged to the apartment. We had to choose one.( which was a wrong one) and walked to the reception. The correct one was Arena parking lot, We couldn't see the Waldorf sign at first.
2.They have internet, but no WIFI. My ipad and my son's ipod couldn't connect to the internet during our stay there.

Had a graduation function to attend and decided to stay for a few extra nights. The apartments are in a fantastic location approx 10 minutes casual walk to Queen Street and we found easily accesible from the airport via SuperShuttles (from touchdown to room only took about 1 hour).

On arrival, we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit on the 9th floor - which gave us more than enough room and was much appreciated. The soundproofing of the unit was exceptional - there is a large development under construction beside the hotel and whilst you could make out the odd noise, the sound level difference when you opened the balcony door was amazing. Also, no noise could be heard from adjoining rooms at all.

The rooms were spotless and fittings appeared to be of a high standard. Coupled with helpful and polite staff meant overall we had a very enjoyable stay.

The only thing I felt let it down was the lack of a swimming pool. There shows a picture of one on the website, however apparently it is located in a completely different building. We flagged it as we didn't want to walk down the street with togs and towels. Just one other thing to note - they take a 1.5% fee on all credit card transactions. This may just be an Auckland thing - I've never come across it and would have thought that they may have waived it due to us staying 3 nights but never mind, we had EFTPOS on hand.

Sounds a bit picky I know, but these points were the only things we could fault amongst a lot of very good features. We would certaily stay here again in the future.
