Hilton Auckland

Reviewed 28 September 2013

The Auckland Hilton is located on a wharf and don't be surprised to open the shades one morning and be nose to nose with a passenger on a cruise ship! I once failed to see the notice in the room, warning of this and certainly got a surprise.
This is an elegant hotel with large rooms and family suites (which we scored on our first stay, but never again). The views over the bay and the city are lovely and the service is very obliging. Had problems on several occasions with the plumbing but everything was done to fix the situation.
Great location for all the trendy bars, restaurants etc and the city shops.

We stayed at the Hilton at the end of holiday on my birthday. The service is fantastic we got to the hotel at 11.00 and we were able to go to our room straight away.We paid an extra $60 to be upgraded to a room with a view of the Harbour it was so worth the money.The rooms are average size but the bed was so comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance to everything would definitely stay again

We stayed 2 nights on 6th floor. Room was a reasonable size, not pokey at all, very comfortable, bed/pillows perfect, curtains effective, desk area ample, view interesting and beautiful. Shower/bathroom spacious and luxurious - awesome shower rose and plenty of room for cosmetics etc on vanity.
The restaurant downstairs called Fish was really, really good. Hotel bar area very relaxing, casual, good service, interesting view, and good wine. Room service was prompt and quite generous. We had antipasto plate and it was enormous but a little bit lacking in flavour. Great staff, helpful and polite without being annoying. Easy walking distance to town and some great cafes for late breakfast. All in all a lovely weekend - AND the All Blacks WON!

Room Tip: 611 was good

The Hilton Hotel in Auckland is an amazing place to stay! We stayed there for 3 nights and loved everything: the location, the staff, the breakfast, the room with a huge balcony overlooking the harbour. It was just great! The staff were all lovely and had very good restaurant recommendations as well. All in all just great!

My friends and I were attending a wedding at the museum, so we decided rather than driving home after the wedding to our homes in the north it would be wiser to get accommodation in the city. We didn't have a lot of choice in selecting a hotel as there was a rugby test on the same night as the wedding so only the most expensive rooms were available but we had a good time with no worries and a very clean room. The staff were very friendly our only down moment was getting ripped off by our taxi driver who charged us $32.00 to get from the hotel to the museum and the pre booked taxi not being there to pick us at midnight from the museum to return us to the hotel, we eventually got a taxi back and that only cost us $14.00 otherwise it was a enjoyable experience.
