We booked this hotel in March 2012 mainly due to its location. It is right in the heart of downtown Auckland, just next to Sky Tower and within walking distance to shopping areras, harbour, bus stop, supermarket, restaurants etc. It is very convenient for travellers who do not drive in Auckland.
Next, since we are a family with young kids, we chose to saty here because our 2-bedroom apartment comes with a full kitchen, washing machine and dryer.
Lastly, we booked online at a quite reasonable price for 2 nights stay.
We stayed at 13th floor, which turned out to be a nice unit. There was no unbearable noice, and it was very clean and spacious. There were windows at Living room and both bedrooms which offered nice city views, Both bedrooms were equiped with queen size beds.
The bathroom was clean, and big enough to accommondate the washing machine machine and dryer. The Kitchen was fully equiped and very clean. The staffs at the reception were friendly and helpful.
However, besides all the good point above, this hotel has its shortcomings.
Firstly, it is more of an apartment than a hotel. It lacks those standard amenities of an usual hotel, and the entrance and lobby are not impressive at all. Although the place is very clean, the building itself and all the furniture are not new.The interior decor of the unit is quite plain too.
We would recommend this place to those who are a bit backpacker style, who prefer a convenient and clean place to stay at reasonable price. If you happen to pay a hefty price for it and have high expectations for somethings there are fancy, trendy or high standard of services, you may be disappointed.
