The Hotel was ok, you can get a better deal elsewhere for the same quality. rooms were very normal, nothing special, in fact a bit dusty and somewhat old furniture. The location was perfect, everything is within a walking distance in the middle of the downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for a dust free newer room,

We stayed here for our wedding night and the staff, particularly the manager Mikey, were all excellent. They were universally easy to deal with and pre-empted our needs really well. The rooms were super clean and comfy with great views over auckland. Only negative would probably be the rooms could do with a bit of modernisation, but this is a minor gripe. We would recommend, and will stay here again.

We arrive very early and the incredible staff of the hotel make our start in Auckland a very pleasant and relaxing day. Pick the newspaper on the concierge and a short walk to the city hall to start experiencing the place. The hotel is very well located with two entrances at different levels for your convenience. Also there are alternative elevators to access the pool and gym. Pool was a bit overflow and windows opened so a bit chilled at 9 pm, but overall the experience was good.

The rooms were good with pay TV and spotless. Our room view was to police station, so we had a sense of safety around. However, we did not suffer any noise problems.

The staff was great, Daniel, Jana and Kevin made a good hotel experience a great hotel experience, thank you!!
They accommodated us to a king bed once it became available, the king room was excellent with a living area and desk. My only complaint would be the soft mattresses and that the bed pads should extend to cover the entire mattress but those are minor in comparison to the overall service and accommodation which was excellent.

Room Tip: King room with desk and living area perfect for business travelers

Tough review as I am quite a Rendezvous hotel advocate. I have stayed at other rendezvous establishments and this is below the norm which I have had the pleasure of experiencing. The rooms are OK. We had a double double room and only,had two bath towels provided even though booking for three guests. You need to know you are across the road from a major police station which frequently has vehicles leaving with sirens ablazing at odd hours. The check in was average in comparison, without being informed of a $100 security being charged to the credit card!
The positives: great location if you are attending the civics centre or the symphonic centre. The main CBDD shopping street is also very close. The negatives is the proximity to the police hub, the noise generated from unruly guests upon their return in the atrium and the average service from the staff. The beds are like sleeping on a waterbed. One person moves and the other moves in sync.

Stayed here for one night in a standard room. I was very impressed with the size of the room - it felt very spacious and even with the curtains open it was very private. Finally we have a hotel that has a good comfortable proper chair at the workstation area - well done! I was very impressed with the bathroom - again very spacious and even had a bath - haven't seen that in a while. Must admit that this hotel exceeded my expectations and just offers that little bit more. I look forward to my next business trip.
