In all the categories I care about, the Stadium Waldorf was a star. They had an excellent location for a visiting family, with a three-minute walk to a 24-hour supermarket and car rental agencies across the street, plus they were within walking distance to all of the CBD. The room wasn't merely a room, but a modern apartment, complete with a kitchen, washer & dryer, and separate bedrooms. And the rates were a great bargain.
The staff was polite and helpful. They enthusiastically answered any question I had about Auckland, and even helped me find a doctor when I had a brief but intense bout with my stomach.
The closest I can come to a complaint is the view we had from the balcony: a large parking deck.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting central Auckland!More
