We stayed four nights at the Waldorf Celestion and were very comfortable. On arrival the reception was friendly and helpful and the apartment on the 13th floor was light and quiet, with a living room, bedroom and study and two balconies. Broadband internet sockets were in both the living room and study and at AUD 20 for a week was very good value (no wifi so if you have an iPad bring an Airport Express). We booked onsite parking and I think booking was necessary as there are not many spaces, but they do also have cheaper offsite parking. The housekeeping staff were very welcoming and helpful. A real bonus, especially on a wet evening, was the Little India restaurant entered through the hotel lobby: really good food and you can also order to eat in the apartment.
The hotel is right in the centre, a few blocks from the harbour and Queen Street shops and close to lots of pubs and restaurants.
We would definitely stay there again.
Just one minor quibble: the apartment had a washing machine but no drier, so of limited use!

BarrieLV, thank you for your review of our property. We were delighted that your stay was an enjoyable one. I have passed on your review to our staff. In relation to the Washing Machine we are looking at dryers, but we do have a Laundramat onsite with 7 dryers.

We stayed here last weekend 25/2/12 and it was great, i had asked for a view which I got, we were in room 1402 which was lovely, port views and a really well layed out apartment. Big comfy bed and all the mod cons, so impressed and we payed $109 a night which was a real bargain.

Room Tip: We had room 1402 and it had great views, a balcony ,and high up.

There are 5 Waldorf hotels in Auckland thus make sure to select the Celestion. The rooms are apartment style meaning it has a kitchen (incl. dining table) and a living room. Perfect for families with child(ren) as there is plenty of space. Modern interior, thus has a new feel. Felt the apartment was clean. Helpful staff but had to remember them that a mistake was made in the reservation. Would have overpaid if not pointed out, thus know what you paid for. At first appears off the center, but turns out close to Queen St which is the main shopping street (5 min walk). Also, close to the harbor with plenty of restaurants and a large grocery store. Drawback is that it is slightly pricey and they don't offer free WiFi which considering the price could be expected.

DPFS, thank you for your feedback. Celestion is only miutes away from downtown Auckland, the ferry terminals, Britomart and so much more. Many guest take advantage of our proximity to make the most of their time in Auckland.

It was everything we wanted for a visit to Auckland, very close to the centre, yet very quiet.
The staff were extremely helpful and the rooms well equipped.
