I'm not a seasoned business or solo traveller, and tend towards hotels at the "affordable" price range - that is, around the $100 mark (AUD / NZD / USD / etc.).
So, I was fully prepared for this hotel to be rather simple, and possibly even a little ordinary. But I was pleasantly surprised. It's in a GREAT location - right across from the Aotea Centre, right on Queen Street, only a few minutes walk from Albert Park and Auckland University, and with Public Transport RIGHT at the door!
The room was VERY clean indeed, and I was surprised that I actually had kitchenette facilities - microwave, hotplates, kitchen and dining utensils. There were a few items of furniture that looked a little worse for wear - namely anything wooden, but generally, the room was pleasant, clean, modern and a good size.
The bathroom was also very clean, although on the small size. My one gripe would be the placement of the toilet roll holder. I notice this in a LOT of hotels - it's as if they expect us to be able to physically contort ourselves when on the loo! Or practising yoga...! I know this might be TMI, but it's simple things like that, that I tend to pick up on!
In summary, however, this is an excellent hotel, in a lovely refurbished Art Deco building, that is VERY suitable for singles or couples.
