“Stunning and great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

We stayed here one night prior to our cruise. The foyer does not live up to the apprtment. We booked a 2 bedroom appartment and was given a penthouse. It had a very large balcony with full length windows on both the living room and the bedroom. As we were jet lagged from our long trip from the UK we were awake at 4:30am and watched our cruise ship sail into the dock from our bed.! The views over Auckland harbour were great. The appartment was spotless, it was a 10 min walk to the harbour where you can catch the hop on hop off Auckland tourist bus. We would highly recommend this modern hotel

Room Tip: Try to request the top floor. The views are stunning

Auckland City at night is a wonderful sight. I am very pleased you were able to experience this yourself.

Stayed just the one night at the Celestion, but will definitely go back again. We had a one-bedroomed apartment on the 7th floor, beautifully appointed, very clean, with a lovely balcony overlooking Anzac Avenue. The only down side is the lack of parking on site. But secure parking is provided a very short walk away. It's a little tricky to pull off the road into the loading area alongside the hotel to unload your luggage. But, this apart, a great place to stay within walking distance to Vector Arena, the docks, Queen Street, etc.

What a place and such great value. We ended our trip to NZ here and thought that this by far was the nicest Hotel we stayed in. The value was superb and the rooms excellent. The food in Little India downstairs was amazing

A 5-10 minute walk from the wharf - good for cruisers. Within walking distance of many attractions and Airbus airport transport. Room very modern and clean with good amenities and very spacious - was upgraded to 2 bedroom without asking. However, outside noise a bit distracting at night and needs more blackout curtains for all windows. Close to Countdown supermarket in order to utilize the full kitchen.
Overall, a great place to stay, and can't beat the price!

We had a two bedroom apartment on an upper level. Tidy, clean and spacious (apart from a king sized bed in a double bedroom. The location is good - short walks to supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Only complaint was the noise of the extraction fan going all day/night.

Our two bedroom apartment offered clean, livable space with a refrigerator, microwave and stove. While a few blocks from city center, there were several Indian ( one in the hotel) and Japanese restaurants nearby as well as a great Vietnamese restaurant 2 blocks away. Convenience store nearby too. Front staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Lower floors more accessible given single elevator, but more street noise too.
