Quest on Hobson
Reviewed 11 June 2013

A good stay. Everything I expected. Room was a good size, however no view at all. Good location.

Only improvements I can think of -

1) An extra blanket would have been nice. Despite the AC being turned to heat, it was still too cold with just one sheet and one blanket.

2) No power outlets in the bathroom. Kind of them to provide a hairdryer..but to use that in the kitchen, with a mirror was pointless.

3) Wireless internet should be free. Its become pretty standard of most hotels internationally to provide their guest with this. I did see the computer in the lobby, but really these days everyone wants to use the internet on their own devices.

Dear Guest,

Hope you are well and thank you for taking out time to submit your feedback.

There are only 3-rooms which unfortunately dont have power outlet in bathroom, I apologise that you were in one of them, however we are working on getting them installed asap in these rooms.

We are pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again soon in the near future.

Warm Regards

I relocated to Auckland for an assignment and found this very welcoming serviced apartment. Needless to mention my initial settlement was seemless and I never felt any missing facility. This serviced & serviced facility is personally taken care by the owner, staff is highly efficient and very friendly. I have stayed in NZ for 9 months and could never move elsewhere. Excellent service and value for money. This is central to Auckland downtown and all possible facilities. I have gone ahead and made many official and personal recommendations. I thank the staff for making my stay pleasant and memorable!

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor are quieter and nice. To add to this, they have excellent penthouse on the top.

I have stayed here on and off in a one bedroom apartment for the last 8 months for business with stays of 1 week to a couple of months.
Location is great for work (in the CBD) and social activities.
Rooms are clean and modern and include all essential amenities required for longer stays (regular servicing, washer, dryer, fridge, fully equipped kitchen).
The staff are polite and very attentive; any minor issues have been resolved promptly.
I highly recommend for both short and longer stays in Auckland.

This is a relatively new hotel and we got a good price as "opening special" seems others had some complaints when construction was still ongoing but this was not evident during our stay.
As with many places in N.Z. our room had a kitchen, a studio and was very efficient with everything we needed including washer/dryer. No balcony but big picture window - we had upper floor which was quiet from any street noise.
It is more like an apartment bldg. and does not have a fancy hotel lobby or resto etc.
Location is very good especially if you arrive or leave by coach as it is barely 100 meters from the Sky City coach terminal. Also in CBD and close to many restos, shops, post office, grocery stores.
I liked this place and recommend it for economy and will return if back in Auckland.

Room Tip: Upper floor.

Absolutely brilliant place to stay. Have stayed here a number of times and it is one of the place I always choose to stay when i am in Auckland. Friendly staff highly professional. Situated right in the heart of the city with sky tower at arms length. The manager is great and always makes you feel welcomed. Top Marks for the service and facilities available.

The location and rooms are good. I wish some small things like iron boxes were of better quality. Mattresses are little too soft for a person like me who complains about back ache. Otherwise, interior of the rooms is good. Kitchen is also nicely furnished. Penthouses are awsome (except soft mattresses). There is no swimming pool. Gym is located at some distance (7-8 min walk).

Room Tip: Chose penthouses if you can afford however ACs were not installed in penhouses

The rooms are really nice and clean with all the things which we needed. Rooms having nice air-conditioning system. And the main thing is it is situated in the heart of the city which is really awesome. queen street by walking 3 minutes away, Britomart train and bus station only 8 mins away by walk, awesome restaurants at viaduct harbour just 5 mins walk, and the biggest entertainment area of Auckland which is " Skycity " just on the other side of the road across the signals. And the staff is really helpful and friendly. I will recommend my friends and relatives about this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floors are really big and had a really big balconies.
