Always have good service at Citylife - staff friendly, helpful and professional. Location is super central, and surrounded by great bars, restaurants and takeaway outlets (Kiwi Country Noodles Outlet sounds terrible, but awesome and cheap Chinese food near entrance!). Rooms clean and have all the facilities required for a short stay. Also very good value for money - what's not to like!

Stayed in a one bedroom suite for two nights. Booked room at back of hotel as it is quieter. Comfortable bed, good amenities.Great buffet breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant food is very good. Gym was a little sparse for equipment.

Arrived in Auckland early morning and had asked if I could check in ahead of the normal check-in time. When I arrived the receptionist explained that the room was not ready but offered me the use of the shower etc in the gym area.

Very friendly and helpful staff at the hotel made it a good choice though agree with other reviewers that the WiFi access is not great but compared to oter places where I have stayed in NZ it compares fairly well.

Other reviewers have mentioned the noise from the streetlife below - I was on the 6th floor and would suggest asking for a room on one fo the higher floors.

The plus side of its location on Queen Street is that everything in the centre is so easily accessible and you can easily get buses to areas such as Ponsonby and Parnell.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor.

This hotel was quite nice, sufficient for our two night stay to Auckland. The location did leave something to be desired as it can be loud due to the bars nearby. It was also a pretty far walk to get to the Viaduct Harbour area. The room was comfortable and clean, though the shower was quite dirty. The concierge was also extremely friendly and helpful.

This hotel has great facilities that showcase it as a premium hotel. However it is located very near to the nightclubs on Queen St and if you are a light sleeper it will be a hard nights sleep. The rooms are well maintained and the staff are very helpful. Wi-Fi deal is not great compared to other hotels.
