Best Western President Hotel Auckland
Ranked #31 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central

Reviewed 25 March 2010

Stayed here as part of an 18 night trip around the North Island and it was one of the best night's sleep that we had on our trip. Our room (# 1405) offered us a spectacular view of the Skytower (stunning at night) and was smack bang in the centre of the CBD.
Skytower and the Sky City casino are just across the road, the harbour area is less than 5 minutes walk and the FREE Auckland city bus stops right around the corner.
We booked our accommodation on wotif.com.au and got a great deal of NZD$100 per night including buffet breakfast. Car parking was onsite and cost an additional NZD$15 per night.
Room was spacious, king sized bed, separate kitchenette and bathroom. Flat screen TV, writing desk, internet connection (NZD$12 per 24 hours). Friendly staff.

Stayed here for two nights at the start of our NZ touring trip. It's pretty basic but met all of our needs. Bathroom was a little tired, and some of the fittings could do with a bit of maintenance. There is a limit of 15 mins hot water in the morning, (an eco thing), which was fine for the two of us, but people with kids may struggle! Kitchenette was adequate, though no cooker, just a microwave. Location excellent, right down the road from the Sky Tower. Can be a little noisy from street traffic at night if you are sensitive to that sort of thing. Five minute walk to the harbour. There was a questionable smell in the lobby but I think that was coming from outside!! Internet access expensive!

Stayed here from 5th -8th March for $412AUD which was great value. Good location in the heart of Auckland but this is nothing special. I was just over for a football trip with my mates so it was nothing more than a crash pad for the weekend and it did the job. It was clean, the reception staff were helpful if a little slow and the room (1406 on the corner) had all the basic essentials plus a little kitchenette. The negatives were a drip of a shower and the odd mismatched furniture which made the room look like it was furnished by the salvos. I had agood view of the Skytower from my window but my mate was in a Corporate Suite on the 1st floor and it was bigger, nicely decorated but it was noisy as. He complained and got moved to the 13th fllor and again it was better than my room. The were painting the landing on my floor so perhaps its getting a small make over.

Overall, good for your mates but not somewhere i'd take the wife.

We had a very large apartment style room though the decoration was very dull and would have got me down if we were staying for longer than a night. Bathroom had a bath but hot water was rationed (from memory 15mins then 3 hour wait!) so a bath was out and showers had to be planned. Staff were friendly, we didn't have the breakfast but it looked reasonably priced.
Great location for the city centre which was important for our short stay. We were on 12th floor and it was very quiet.
Overall good value for money but wouldn't recommend for long stay.

We booked a 2 bed room 2 bath apartment for 4 people for NZ$162 per night. Hotel is right in center of twon, walking distance to everything, rooms are clean, bathrooms are imaculate, good value for the money.
However, the 2nd room has no window no air con, only a fan so it can become quite hot during the afternoon. At night it is a bit cooler. The main bed room has air condition and larger than the 2nd bed room. The kitchen is very small like a hall way with a toaster, a microwave and a sink. Bed and pillows are comforatble.
Overall it is comfortable and good for the price we paid

A great location, only a couple of minutes walk from Sky Tower, so if that's the most critical thing for you then this place might do, but there's plenty of others around.

The apartments are very small, even for inner city apartments. The crockery was dirty and needed to be washed before use and the drainage was blocked wich made the room stink. We covered the drain ourselves which got rid of the foul odour.

Was only here for the night as flight arrived late and we left early. The room was a 2 bedded apartment with kitchen, washing machine etc. The room was very spacious and would have been great to stay here longer.
The staff was friendly and the location was in the centre of Auckland near the skytower.
