Scenic Hotel Auckland
Ranked #22 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 10 August 2011

We were so impressed with the service at this hotel. We arrived at 7am from the airport, and the staff were nice enough to check us in. The valet parking was really convenient. The room was super quiet despite being on the 2nd floor, and had everything you might need (including an umbrella for that less than prefect Auckland weather). The bed was really comfortable. We really enjoyed staying here, and would definitely stay here again!

Modest, pleasant place in almost downtown of New Zealand's capitol city. Large bedroom with separate kitchen, small living room and bathroom. Broadband internet at extra charge.

Room Tip: Good choice, affordable price.

I was travelling solo and needed a hotel close to the Civic Theatre. Arrived early and was plesaed to be able to check in straight away. Was upgraded to a superior room and this was perfect for my needs. Airport bus departs from straight outside the door, suited my needs down to the ground. Heard a little traffic noise, but nothing loud enough to disturb my sleep. Cooking facilities were unexpected but found them useful. Used room service for dinner which arrived promptly, was still hot and was delicious! Would definitely use this hotel again both when travelling solo or with family, particularly when attending a show at the Civic!

We were looking at booking a Mystery Hotel on Wotif and a Google search made us suspect that the Scenic Hotel was the 4+ star mystery hotel. However luckily for us finding their website made us realise that the "Take a Break" package they were offering directly via their website was much better value than the Wotif deal! This package was $189 and included: the room with late checkout, free (semi-valet) parking, a bottle of wine & a $80 in-house food credit. Taking all these 'extras' into account this meant the room only cost us around $50 for the night - amazing value!

We arrived early (11am) and got an early check in which was really appreciated. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and check in was fast & efficient.

The room was great - nice and spacious with a really good kitchenette and lounge. We had requested a quiet room and were given a room on the 3rd floor overlooking a small side street which was perfect - still some mild traffic noise but nothing that disturbed our sleep.

The bed was divine with crisp white bedding, the most amazing feather topper and lovely fluffy pillows - we didn't want to get out !!!

The shower had amazing water pressure and the complimentary toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, shower cap & shoe shine) were the best I've ever been given in a hotel - lovely organic quality - a really nice touch.

We used our $80 credit to have two meals (evening meal & breakfast) in the attached MLC Cafe & Bar and had two good meals. My only criticism is that the wait staff here were a bit slow & not particular enthusiastic about their jobs!

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel - it was a great location for our evening show at the The Civic Theatre and made a wonderful base to explore downtown Auckland. We would definitely stay here again.

After a very long flight from the UK, we were glad to find that the hotel would hold our bags for us. When we came back in the evening, they had upgraded us (as we were on our honeymoon) to one of the penthouse suites. The suite was nice, although far too big for us to use for just one night. The downside, the penthouse suites don't have air-conditioning (not always essential but coming from a cold UK, it would have been nice) and entry to the suites is via the fire escape stairs from the floor below. Not easy with two huge suitcases!
Breakfast was a buffet affair and was reasonable in quality, although not particularly cheap (although the exchange rate meant that was across the board). The poached eggs were heavy on the vinegar, not to everyone's taste.

Overall, a well placed hotel with friendly staff and what appeared to be reasonable rooms.

We'd just sold our campervan, it was raining hard and we turned up with an awful lot of stuff at the door of Hotel. We looked a bit grubby. I only provide this background because it would have been very easy for the hotel staff to have been a little sniffy with us. But here's the thing – they weren't – they were really helpful, assisting us with our bags and helping us get settled in to the lovely little apartment.

The price is excellent and the room was just lovely with a well-equipped kitchen including dishwasher. There's also a laundry within the hotel. We stayed here 5 nights and really enjoyed it. You're a 5 minute walk away from downtown Auckland and there are all the restaurants you'd expect within easy walking distance.

Really,if you prefer to stay in an apartment instead of a hotel room, look no further.
