We stayed 3nights in a 2-bedroom apartment on the 11th floor with a view of the stairways!! Fortunately, the unit is clean and comfortable with some good amenities. Other than western food, there are many eating outlets serving Asian food near the apartment. If you are into cooking your own meals, there are a few mid size grocery shops around. Countdown supermarket is about 10 mins walk away. Having to pay for Internet in the room is a disappointment to us! How I wish this could be included in the package.

This place is also within easy walk to the Viaduct basin and ferry terminal. The location is good.

Room Tip: If you want good view, ask for units that are not facing the stairways at the back.

Stayed in a room that had 2 separate rooms; one with the balcony and one without. I took the one without as the balcony view didn't bother me whether I had it or not. In short, a really, really lovely room for the price you pay for it. It had a quality queen size bed with top notch linen too! Quality modern amenities as well as a mini kitchen if you see fit!

TV was a bit small for modern day viewing in my opinion (there was one of the afternoons I just wanted to chill out and watch some day-time TV) as well as the couch being a tad uncomfortable. The small balcony was nice and had a great view; although I didn't really feel inclined to lean on the thick piece of glass with fear of it breaking!

Paying for the Wi-Fi in the room I thought was a bit much. Besides that, 3.5 out of 5 for me.

I booked a double room hotel apartment for 3 nights and was very impressed. The service was exceptional, rooms were very clean. The facilities are great too! The pool ( in the adjoin Waldorf complex) was empty when I went for a dip, the gym is fully equipped and a nice area for lying out was the icing on top. Also the hotel offers a good and cheap wifi,
I loved my stay and will be staying at this hotel again next week! Great view from my room too, close to everything in central city , 4 min walk and you're on queen st!

We arrived late on the 14th from Fiji and worried that someone else would take our booking, but we managed to find the hotel and upon check in we were informed that we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment, Thank you Jesus! We loved it, the rooms, the kitchen, I put my head to rest and i would snooze anyway on the couch or on the bed till the next day. We walked to Queens street, and walked to the britomart, countdown is round the corner for families like us who like to buy fresh for the kids and Craig didnt need to miss his gym because there is a 24 hour gym that we had access too. We did our laundry and drying in the hotel so that was convenient, you just need to purchase some tokens from reception. We loved that the room was perfect and the location was perfect for our first family holidays and first trip overseas. We definetly will be returning. We think back and laugh to ourselfs thinking what if we went with the other hotel up Queens street. What a walk that would have been every evening after a long days sightseeing. We loved Waldorf Celestion, there were alot of restaurants located in the area but we got carried away with the selection at Countdown. Mind you most of our trips to the sites around auckland, on our return by bus we always passed the hotel, so it was easy to either get off near the hotel or at the britomart. Its hard to believe some of the negative comments written about the hotel, because we had a great time and stay at the Celestion. Thank you for the service and the hospitality. We definetly will be back and we only wish the hotel many more successes and business to prosper. I give my rating as excellent for almost all, i will not rate kids activities and spa because we were out all day and so didnt need spa and activities :-) Look forward to returning

Room Tip: 808 will always be my favourite room.
