Waldorf Celestion Apartment Hotel
Reviewed 28 February 2011

Great accommodation concept I wish we had it in the UK .We have arrived from
the airport at midnight and were able to sign a 3 month lease within 30
minutes for a lovely fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment in Waldorf
Celestion. We had in the apartment all the required equipment, telephone,Pay
Tv & internet so we could start the next day our contract- very good value
and very efficient on site management

We arrived on New Years eve at this hotel. Check in was quick and efficient. Receptionist was very friendly and directed us to the best places in town to view the New Year's eves fireworks. Apartment was much bigger than expected. One enormous king and one queen size double bed with very comfortable matresses. Although it we stayed here around New Year, it was very quiet. Apartment was c;ean and had excellent kitchen in which we were able to prepare our meals. As this is an apartment hotel, rooms were not serviced each day, although you may be able to request this. If you run out of something you just have to ask reception which keeps a supply. The hotel has an excellent location and the walk into town was not far. A little note make sure when you take a taxi or book a tour to be picked up at the hotel, that you mention Celestion Waldorf Apartments, as there are several Waldorf apartment buildings around the centre of Auckland!

We stayed here for 1 night in route to Northern Island tour. It was like an apartment, quiet, peaceful. We could have moved in. Much more room than we needed, but it felt very home like after 48 hours of travel.

We chose to stay here based on the high ratings on Tripadvisor, and upon entering the room we could see why. Everything looked new and very clean, and there seemed to be all the right bits needed for an extended stay however we were only there for one night, so did not make use of most of it.

We had booked a one bed apartment for one night, but actually received a two bedroom. This turned out to be very fortunate, as the only complaint we had with the accom was that the main bedroom had the ventilation system built into the ceiling. It wasn't noticeable during the day, but the steady rumble eminating from it would have made sleep very difficult. Luckily the second bedroom had no such issue, and we got a good nights sleep.

Reception was helpful, and suggested a suitable parking space a short walk away that was cheaper than the in-house alternative ($10 compared with about $25).

If they sorted out the ventilation noise this place would hit the maximum ratings for me.

Thank you for your recent review of Waldorf Celestion.

We are pleased that, on the whole, you enjoyed your experience with us. The apartments are indeed kitted out for extended stays but we also welcome the short-stay traveller who prefers a roomier equivalent to a hotel room at a comparable price.

We are pleased that reception provided you with excellent customer service and this is one of the points that guests raise frequently.

We do hope that you will return to Celestion in the near future.

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room in Auckland. It had a separate bedroom/sitting room/ office and was right in the CBD. The views were great, too. We could see the harbor and our ship along with the skyline of Auckland. The staff were accommodating, letting us leave our luggage both when we arrived early and while we toured on the day we left after checkout. It was safe and secure, so we could enjoy ourselves before our room was ready. In general, a comfortable, roomy and reasonably priced place to stay in Auckland.

Many thanks for your recent positive review of Waldorf Celestion.

We are very happy that you enjoyed your time with us. Some of our rooms do have views of the waterside and you were obviously lucky enough to be allocated one of these on this occasion so we are delighted that you were impressed.

Hopefully you will pay us a return visit in the near future.

Good hotel, would highly recommend it. Although they need a bigger sign so it's easier to spot the hotel. Only stay one night, but would definitely go back to this hotel if i'm in the area again.

Many thanks for your review of Waldorf Celestion.

We are happy that your comments were, in the main, positive. We do appreciate what you are saying about the signage, however we do feel that the current signage is in keeping with the building and the general area.

We do hope you will return to Waldorf soon!
