“Easter Special Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

This was a 2nd stay at Waldorf within 7 months and again we were greeted with warm/friendly staff who continued to be very helpful during our stay. Was only supposed to have stayed 2 nights but glad to have added an extra night. Close to all amenities and within walking distance to Viaduct Harbour, Britomart, Queen Street and Sky City - perfect location. Loved our stay in a 2 bedroom spacious apartment with great facilities. Definitely value for money as we used the 3 night Easter Special. Would definitely come back and recommend for sure.

We came here after we would not stay at The Auckland City Hotel. It was very nice, clean, and great location! We really liked that there was a washer and dryer in the room. The only negative was that someone was cooking fish, and the bedroom smelled like fish for quite a while.

Great accomodation and location. Staff were nice, rooms clean and well kept. The only complaint would be the noise of the trucks during the night and early hours using their air brakes which shouldn't be allowed in a built up area-it was constant and very loud. The hotel needs to lodge a complaint to the relevant authorities. Would still recommend the hotel but take ear plugs.
Other than this, great hotel.

Had booked for 2 nights for 1 bedroom apartment. Was given 2 bedroom. Good facilities in room. Good location with short walk to city centre, restaurants and supermarket.
Not much to look at from outside and was a bit hard to find but that was outweighed by everything else. Lovely staff who were very helpful when trying to find our way to places. would certainly recommend based on location, cost and cleanliness etc of Hotel.

My wife and I were very happy with our accommodation at the Waldor Celestion. The location was excellent with a nearby Countdown (Woolworths) supermarket and lots of local restaurants. Our two-bedroom accommodation was perfect for our 15-month old - the room was clean and mostly child-friendly. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Look for a city-facing room on a high level.

Despite initial appearances from the outside, the apartments here are very good, with reasonable cooking facilities. The location is also ideal, only a 5-10 minute walk into the City Centre. There is a big supermarket 5 minutes walk away. Just cross the road at the bottom of Anzac Ave turn right and first left.

The parking facilities are limited and a bit tight for $25 per night, but more convenient than the car parks nearby.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your comments, we really appreciate that you took time to give us valuable
feedback on Celestion & the great location we indeed have. The Hotel does have that 'Industrial Feel' which is not to everyone's taste but the apartments are clean & spacious. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future!

Central location within easy walk of all the waterfront restaurants. Rooms are clean and modern.
In saying that we were surprised our two bedroom apartment did not have a laundry. While mid city the apartments were very quiet and so a good nights rest is assured. Would recommend for a short stay. Room rate was excellent for size and quality of room.
