“Good location and fine service”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

My wife and I enjoyed staying at this hotel. It has a good location very close to Queen Street. It has nice and clean rooms, a fine breakfast with all you need, and a competent and friendly staff at the front desk.

Really enjoyed the location of the hotel - just up from Queen Street, a short walk from most things and a supermarket basically next door.

We didn't get a great reception from the staff member at the desk on check in, but when we asked for late check out (on a different day, different staff member) they were very happy to oblige wtih 12pm, which was great!

The room itself was a bit small but tidy and adequate - a bit surprised to find that 'satellite/cable TV' didn't include Sky (I guess we take for granted that hotels do provide it, this is probably the first one I've ever stayed at in NZ that doesn't) and the reception of the few channels we did get wasn't great.

The stay was reasonably priced (compared to other places in town because of the Nicki Minaj concert) but probably otherwise wouldn't be my pick of hotels in Auckland.

Very good hotel with 14 floors. Two staff on front desk were a little flustered. Very close to tower and Queens street shops,however bit of a walk to harbour but shops all the way. Buses stop out front so you need to find the rear of the hotel if you have driven in own car. (Durham Lane). Rooms are excellent. Good Buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Park at rear of hotel in Durham Lane and enter rear door if using parking in hotel. Car park is a t...

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.

Very nice central hotel, 2 bedrooms, kitchen etc etc, spotlessly clean and lots of extras, tea, coffee etc. Only annoyance is that you have to pay $14.95 a day for WIRED INTERNET. They should really add that into the room price!! And it should be Wireless in this day and age.
Apart from that it is a great hotel right in heart of the action.

Room Tip: It can get noisy, so the higher you are the better!!

My partner and I stayed here for three nights recently and, while it was reasonably priced, the rooms left a lot to be desired. Poorly set out and no character or comfort at all. I've stayed at other hotel/apartments in the CBD which are much nicer and wouldn't stay at the BW again. (E.g. The Warldorfs are nicer) Also note you have to pay $20 a night for car parking. The staff were friendly enough.

Great location, downtown, easy parking (fee), room with kitchenette. For those who enjoy shopping, the Queens St. is steps away. Near the Sky Tower and good restaurants. Large room and good shower.
