“Comfortable, Spacious, and Well-Situated”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

We chose a two-bedroom unit on a high floor and were not disappointed. The apartment was spacious and included a large balcony with a great view. The beds were comfortable, though the bedrooms were small. Our unit had one bathroom, which was modern and pleasant. Front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful with transportation (including local bus) and tourist information. A self-serve Laundromat is available in the building for a fee. Internet also has a fee. The building is located in a fairly non-descript immediate neighborhood but is only a few blocks and an easy walk to the harbor, the Sky Tower complex, and other attractions. No service is provided in the apartments for short stays, so you need to make your own bed and keep your bathroom tidy on your own.

Pros:
Large apartment
New, clean
Comfortable beds and couches
Good location, <10 min walk to ferry terminal and restaurants
Helpful staff

Cons:
Bedroom was very small for size of bed - no TV in bedroom - I don't watch TV much, but it's sometimes nice to catch the news before going to sleep
Apartment was not 'serviced' in the 3 days we were there - more like a rental, but that was not obvious on booking
Vent in bathroom was very dusty
No free wifi

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.
