“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed 23 January 2008

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights before starting a tour Dec 2007 & loved everything about the hotel. The room was spacious, nice modern bathroom & very clean with all the luxuries. Was on the 7th floor with a nice surrounding view. Aircon was no problem. Free internet on the ground floor which was great & as other post several entries was good. Afew minutes walk from markets, Imax & Queen street, about a 15 min or so walk to the harbour.

Great indoor pool, sauna & gym which was one of the best I've seen. Never used the restaurant but looked OK. Staff friendly & efficient - would definately stay there again.

Booked a deluxe room for 2 nights, which is plenty of time in Auckland & for jet lag recuperation. We arrived about 8:30am from the airport just worn out and were so pleased they had a room ready for us. It was spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom which was CLEAN. I can't say enough about the staff's super quick and pleasant response to all our requests. We had dinner delivered from an Indian restaurant & room service brought us plates, cutlery & ice - no charge. It's close to Queen St & all the CBD shops. Yes, a small TV with so-so reception, but we didn't go to NZ to watch TV, so not an issue for us. We were on the 5th floor and A/C worked very well.

We stayed a 2nd time the night before we flew home in a similar room on the 8th floor. Same great service but the shower floor was grotty with mildew. We made the mistake of eating breakfast downstairs. It was awful. We both ate a bit of fruit and left the rest barely nibbled. They removed the charges ($60 for 2) after my husband mentioned it at checkout. I meant to take photos and forgot.

  • Liked — Friendliness of the staff, quick and positive response to all requests, comfy bed.
  • Disliked — Shower grot 2nd trip

I recently stayed for 4 nights on a business trip to Auckland. The hotel is situated on Mayoral Drive which is about a 5 minute walk to Queen Street and maybe a 15/20 min walk to the Harbour and ferries.

The Hotel itself has a large atrium with rooms on I believe 12 floors. There are various rooms, but on this ocassion, I just stayed in a standard deluxe room. The standard of the room is fairly as expected. Clean and comfortable. Probaby seen better days but perfecty fine all the same. Stains on carpet and chairs. TV was quite small and "in the box" variety. The TV's reception was not always great and teh remote was a pain to operate. Room definately needs updating in this respect.

The bathroom was very clean and spacious with seperate bath and shower. Towels were plentiful but a bit scratchy.

Air.con was problematic and an engineer was sent to the room twice. On entering teh room , it was very hot even although the thermostat was on its lowest setting. Apparently a "valve" was stuck and thsi prevented the aircon from becomming cooler. However, this happened twice and was a bit of a pain. They do come to the room quickly though to resolve this issue.

Internet can be available in the room at a charge. They have various plans but basically around $34 New Zealand Dollars for 24 hrs. When I called to enquire about charges before booking, I was told that broadband was free in the rooms, only WIFI connections were charged. However, this was not true an dI was told that " I must have spoken to a casual member of staff:. Apologies given but no real compromise on charges made at all. Infact no reduction was given at all!!!!

I like this hotel because it is very anonymous and you practically see no-one during your stay. Many exits without having to walk past reception. However, security seems non existant as anyone can walk in and access any floor , unlike most hotels which only allow access to the floor you are staying on! However, I am sure this is not the case and that security is just subtle!!!!!

Overall, I had very few complaints and the hotel served its purpose. They offer very good rates on their own website. I have stayed in their club suites before and they are much more comfortable and spacious with a flatscreen tv and much better toiletries. Club room has a nice view but the standard and availability of food and beverage has decreased in both quantity and quality.

We stayed in a balcony suite for the last night of our honeymoon - biggest hotel room either of us has ever been in and my wife travels alot and stays in quite nice hotels for work. The view was great from the balcony, though it was a bit cold to use.

The shower is the best I've ever had in a hotel - great pressure!

A bit of advice though - don't pay for the breakfast buffet. We had it comped to us, and it was good, but it's no where near as good as the cost ($20pp I believe).

  • Liked — The size of the balcony room, and close proximity to restaurants downtown
  • Disliked — The breakfast

Excellent. Would stay again any time.

Self booked a two night pre-cruise stay and was completely surprised by how great everything was. Rooms were very, very tasteful and nicely furnished - not overly large, but fine for my short stay.

Every staff member was welcoming and made a fabulous effort to satisfy. Location is good, quite a lot to see and do within a short walk.

I can't imagine anyone being disapointed here!

Spent our last night in New Zealand at the Rendezvous and loved every moment after a hectic three weeks spent in a campervan. The room was lovely, clean and spacious and the service was second to none. Treated ourselves to room service which was also excellent. To top it all off the price was extremely reasonable. Cannot recommend this hotel more.

Good location, close to Sky Tower Casino and shopping. Big reception area check in quick and friendly. Big public areas no dark dingy corridors. Room good size clean & tidy nothing too flashy.
Nice big bathroom with seperate bath and shower all marbel clean and tidy.

Breakfast what you would expect but nothing special opens at 6.00 am . Service good.A good buisness Hotel or for a short stay.
