“Not the Waldorf-Astoria, but lives up to the name”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Very spacious and comfortable rooms which are well appointed (I also got a room upgrade on one occasion but did not even get to see the "space ship" which @algor50 managed). Very good shower presssure and no shortage of hot water late in the day, plenty of towels etc. Top flight reception staff in terms of being (a) well groomed, (b) polite and friendly, and (c) efficient.
The 24 hr lobby is excellent and the lovely German woman who runs the onsite breakfast buffet provides a cheery start to the day with plenty of options (despite being called a "continental" breakfast they have hot scrambled eggs and and boiled eggs).
On my last visit I stayed 3 nights and was surprised to find the room was not serviced during that time (not a bother really as there were plenty of spare towels, toilet paper, teabags etc etc).
Highly recommend this as it is handy to the University, close to the town centre, an easy walk to the Viaduct, and just down the road from all the great restaurants on Parnell Rise (such as the Blue Elephant Thai - which I would rate as well worth a visit if only to try the "Blue Elephant Friends" - almond crusted Chicken fillets).

Room Tip: Try to get one higher up (level 9 or 10) and towards the rear of the hotel which is a bit quieter...

We stayed one night as we were seeing a show at the Vector arena. One couldn't find a more convenient place to stay for a show. Coupled with that, there are all the wonderful restaurants in Britomart which is just a five minute walk. The apartment was spacious, clean and quiet.

Very warm friendly welcome, which did make us feel welcome (which not always the case) Upgraded free to a 2 bed apartment which was very spaceship. Great little kitchen with every thing that we need. Great shower, great location to the Vector Arena with good parking.

Excellent Apartment Hotel, good staff, they were ever so courteous and dressed to the highest of standard. The 2 bedroom apartment hotel was so elegant with a balcony that opened out to . The foyer is opened 24 hours a day with nice art work and surrounded with the most amazing arrangement of New Zealand florals. Our apartment was classy ,clean and well equipped and the best sleep ever experienced in any hotel we have ever stayed at. The gymnasium and swimming pool in the adjoin complex were of professional level welcome and their spa too. The restaurant and service at breakfast was great .it is a place to forget about everything. It will make you stay a good one .Excellent value!!!

The good:

Stayed a week after the Formula 1 race in Melbourne. We had a two bedroom apartment with kitchen and living room and nice size bath. Kitchen has all of the necessary appliances including microwave, frig, oven (!), dishwasher (!) and washer/dryer. Grocery store around the corner. Good responsive staff.

The not so good:

Alarm clock didn't work. They were promoting their breakfast with a 30% off. Not much there. We ate the first morning around
10am and we thought we were paying the price for sleeping in because there wasn't much left, so we got up early at 8am and there was even less. Ate at the coffee shop around the corner after that. Lastly, the couch and chair are worn out and needs to be replaced. Kind of hard for older adults (us) to get out of such low sitting chairs.

Suggestions:

Buy you own toilet paper and some paper towels.

Nice quality apartment hotel in a very good location in the city of Auckland. Very good size living room, kitchen and bedroom. Internet is at a reasonable rate that I don't mind paying for.
Overall a really nice place to stay and I will be going back.
