“Excellent value”
Reviewed 17 January 2011

Stayed here two night in an executive apartment, which was just NZ$10 more than the standard. Fantastic room, and the study/executive work room came in really handy for repacking all our gear before we caught our outbound flight. We walked in the front door of the hotel and though 'wow, this is nice!'

We had a room with a balcony looking east over the harbour on the 15th floor, and the standard of the furnishings was excellent. The bed was very comfortable, the room stylish, modern and spacious. Overall we felt exceptionally comfortable in the hotel. The staff were helpful at all times.

The location is probably a 10min walk to the restaurants at the Viaduct and 5-7 from Queen St, the main shopping area. In essence, it's easy to get to shops, restaurants or ferries around the harbour from this place. It is among inner city high-rise apartment blocks, so it doesn't perhaps have the atmosphere of a place near the Viaduct for instance, but really, I didn't care.

There is also a big supermarket less than 5min away and the kitchen in the apartment was well-stocked with pots, pans & utensils. Best of all, we had an Apex Rental car to return and the drop-off point/Auckland office is literally about 3min walk around the corner, which made it exceptionally easy.

Considering it was pretty much the same price as waterfront hotels, many of which had mixed reviews on TripAdvisor, and this still has an excellent location, I'd more than recommend this place. I know I'd go back.

Loved the location and the flexibility of having an apartment. Well furnished and functional rooms. Would recommend to any group of travelers, or ideal for a family.

Thanks to Tripadvisor, we couldn't find a better hotel at a better price. The location is convenient to everything and everywhere that we wanted to go. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel and the supermarket is just down the street. We flew in very early and were checked in right away. All the receptionists were courteous and helpful. Our room was spacious and had a partial view of the harbor just as we requested. If we ever came back to Auckland, we will definitely stay at the Celestion Wardorf again.

We stayed for three nights, one of which was New Year's Eve, after changing our mind from another hotel which had poor reviews on here.

We chose the hotel because we understood it had free parking, but when we checked in we were told it was $15 & at a near-by carpark (about ~200 metres walk) @ $15 per day...our mistake.

When we finally got up to our room, there's only one lift, it was large & spacious.

The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to Queens St & SkyTower.

Overall, we enjoyed our room & would go back.

We booked this hotel from Canada after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We stayed for 4 days and then went to Australia for 2 weeks. We enjoyed staying here so much we booked the same location for our return stay after Australia.
It has everything you need while away from home. Basically it is a modern, newly renovated small apartment. Clean, fully stocked kitchen and close to a super market.
The only downfall is no in room Wi-Fi. There is wired internet, which os OK as long as you dont have a MacBook Air like I do as it has no Ethernet port. A $49 accessory from a local electronics shop fixed me up and then we were good to go.

My partner and I stayed in a one bedroom unit for three nights. It was very modern, clean and spacious. Perfect location - just round the corner from Queen St and in the other direction the Vector Arena. We paid $115 per night through Wotif and have to say it's not only the best place we've stayed at in Auckland but also the cheapest. Will definitely stay there again and would strongly recommend to anyone.

What a professional furnished apartments accommodation! we never have similar good experience in our own home (USA)!. We sent an email a week before arrival to Auckland and were offered a selection of serviced apartments for our 4 weeks tay- we have not even got reply from other real estate agencies in Auckland withwhom we makethe same enaquiry. Only after we arrive we found that they deal with a minmum stay of 3-6 months but noone from these agencies bothered to reply!!!
We arrived to Auckland aiport at midnight and the taxi Waldorf arranged for us was already waiting for us.We moved to a beautiful 1 bedroom plus office apartment in Waldorf Celestion. The apartment was great,high quality, very secured and at a bargain price of NZ$630 per week with internet unlimited service free of charge! This is a great furnished apartments accommodation!!!!!
