Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel
Ranked #20 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 14 April 2013

We stayed 1 night in a 2 bed apartment. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The decor was modern and the staff friendly and helpful.

The room set-up was a bit weird and off putting which didn't ruin our stay by any means but did disappoint. The master bed room appeared to be an add on but I'm not really sure how as it was in the middle of the apartment. It had a double sliding glass door and glass panels as highlight windows on the wall adjoining the other bedroom. The end result was a bedroom with no ventilation and an overall creep feel to it.

Stayed: April 2013, travelled with family

This is the perfect place to stay if you're going to an event at Vecta Arena. It's a very short walk from the apartments to the arena. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room (up on the 10th floor overlooking the Arena and the harbour) was a good size, modern and clean with a 40" TV in the lounge and a 32" in the bedroom. Our rate included breakfast and full use of the Waldorf Lounge where we could get "proper" coffee :) The breakfast was really nice, healthy with plenty to choose from. The only complaint we had is that the bed was too hard for us, but this would certainly not stop us from staying here again.

If you are with a group of friends coming to Auckland for a show at the Vector Arena, I suggest staying at the Waldorf Stadium Apartment hotel. It is 2 minutes through a back door to the Arena. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment, and with 4 of us occupying the room, the price went down very well. The decor is modern and clean. We had a tiny balcony facing a commercial street. The area is not really that close to Queen street, and most restaurants are closed by the time your show ends. There are a number of noisy discos near the waterfront, but not within hearing distance to the hotel. As with the other reviewers, I found the nail polish and shoe shine amenities rather strange, and liquid soap dispensers in the shower and sink too much of backpacker ambience. I suppose at these prices free wifi is too much to ask for. Wifi is available but at a small cost.

We had a booking at the Waldorf Celestion but when we arrived they had overbooked so had us check in at the waldorf Stadium instead. The room was fantastic with everything you could want provided, Flat screen TVs ib lounge and bedroom, cooking facilities, dishwasher, washing mashine and dryer. It was modern clean and comfortable. Only downside was we paid to have breakfast in the dining room and that was dissapointing.

Stayed there on two occasions during our trip and liked this hotel very much. We traveled with two children, so took the two bedroom apartment. The location is great, the rooms are big, clean and well decorated, there are all the required facilities including washing and even an access to a great gym and pool, all at a very reasonable price.

I stayed for four nights, arriving on Saturday and leaving Wednesday. I had initially requested a one-bedroom apartment, but was provided with a two-bedroom apartment instead - a nice gesture, but as I was staying by myself, I was unable to take advantage of the second bedroom.

The apartment was large, and was certainly tidier and better quality than what I was expecting.

My bed was was reasonably comfortable. The bedroom had excellent blackout drapes, which were particularly helpful as the office block next door still had its lights on late at night.

I wasn't expecting any little luxuries at this price, but found that they provided a shoe shining kit, make up remover, and shower caps. I'm wondering how many people would use these? If they wanted to provide a few little "perks", then there is nothing wrong with the tried and tested soap, shampoo and conditioner (I think some bars of soap at least would have gone down well. Personally, I found the soap dispensers on the wall and in the shower lowered the tone of the apartment a little).

My room was serviced once during my stay. Sadly, it was on the penultimate day, by which time I had already run out of face cloths (I was provided with two to start off with). For a four night/five day stay, it would perhaps make more sense to do the servicing on the middle day.

The apartments are very close to the Vector Arena.

I would have no hesitation in staying at the Waldorf Apartments again.

We stayed here for two nights never having stayed at a Waldorf property before and were very pleasantly surprised.
Our huge studio apartment on the 7th floor was spotlessly clean and well-equipped with a huge bed, TV, balcony, washing machine and tumble dryer and a small kitchen. We had views up the Auckland City Skyline. It was pretty much perfect for us.
Both days we had breakfast. The first day were amazed at how nice it was. .
We were so pleased with this Waldorf that we made a point of staying with them everywhere we could while on our trip around the North Island.It was great value for money at a very pleasant and central Auckland location
Highly recommended!
