We ended a three week tour of New Zealand back in Auckland at this property. What a wonderful end to a great vacation! Nice, spacious apartment with decent amenities. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms nicely appointed. At only $135 NZ a night for a three night stay this property is excellent value for Auckland. We paid more for simple studios in other parts of the country.

The building's lobby and hallways are a bit dark, and the location is just on the border of downtown so you will need to walk about 10 minutes to get to the ferry docks and restaurants....but overall a very convenient location.

This is an apartment hotel so there is no maid service if you stay three nights or less....not a big deal to us since it was such good value.

My wife and I spent five nights at this hotel in early November. Our rooms were located in the back tower, so all was quiet. We had two separate balconies that afforded great views of the city. The hotel is only a few blocks from pedestrian friendly Fort street as well as the pubs on Vulcan. A longer walk can take you the Parnell district, the museum at the top of the hill (which was excellent, well worth the money) or the downtown area. Also only a few blocks to the ferry terminal. The front desk were extremely helpful with tips on what to see in Auckland. There is an Indian restaurant attached to the hotel with good though pricey tandoori fare. Also close by is a huge supermarket. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We liked our upper floor room in the back tower.

We were disappointed with this accommodation although it had looked good initially. Our first impression when entering the building was that is was rather dark and dreary. Our apartment was adequate but basis. The second bedroom did not have a window which was rather odd. When we were due to leave we were hassled first by the front desk who rang to remind us that we had to be out of the apartment by 10.00am and then by the Housekeeper who knocked on the door asking when we were leaving (this was before check out time). Having said all this, the apartment was clean and well situated for walking into Auckland. There is a large supermarket close by which is useful if you are self-catering. Even so, should we visit Auckland again we would look for alternative accommodation though not sure what else is available in the same price bracket.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate both the great comments, and the 'no so great'
comments that our valued guests provide to us. It is based on this feedback, that we are able to deal with issues & implement changes to ensure guest satisfaction. Celestion has a unique industrial look which is quirky & different but not everyone's taste!
We take this opportunity to wish you a very merry Xmas.

After arriving from a very long 23 hour flight, we were not only please that received an early check in, but we got upgraded as well. Delights for our first day in Auckland.

The staff were courtious and expedient on check in, and the room we had( 1604) on the top floor had partial view of the harbour basin. The superior room was really spacious, and well appointed, and had it not been for the fact that we were only booked here for the night, I would gladly recommend this establishment for longer stays.

5 minutes walk down to the viaduct area in the Auckland waterfront, brings you to a myriad of restuarants, although if you wanted to self cater, the room provides execllant facilities to serve this option.

Waldorf Celestion apartments is deffinitly great value for money, and can reccomend this establishment

Room Tip: We were on the 16th floor so it was really quiet
