Quest Auckland Serviced Apartments
Reviewed 1 January 2013

There are a handful of Quests in and around the city but none beat Quest Queen St. for convenience and tranquility.
Ordinarily Queen St. at party time would raise alarms for road noise. Not so for the many units facing Myers Park, a little-appreciated oasis beyond the Aotea Centre.
Checking in late afternoon ? Ask the very capable UK-born Rachelle for a unit facing the setting sun. You're in for a treat as the final glorious rays fill the room and pretty much the only other sound you hear is birdsong.
You might have arrived in a car in which case you will have discovered the no-brainer access off the highway. The Airbus alternates in its drop off points but the closest is about 20 metres from the reception.
If you're new to the area bring Karangahape Road which intersects Queen's top into your radar. Walk up the main street, or plunge down into Myers Park and follow it right up to a flight of ancient steps which connect. This is hamstring material for which any short domestic flight or protracted time in a car is candidate.
Ask reception about the newly minted commercial deal with the Fitness Centre just off the corner of Victoria and Queen where helpful staff there will treat you like a long lost friend. If you have your own padlock for the locker fine, but don't fret as they'll look after your valuables while you workout.
You're armed with a kitchenette which you'll want to use.
Raunchy and definitely not the hospital feel of the Countdown supermarket right at the base of Queen St. is the Lim Chhour Supermarket at 184 K'Rd. which you'll find exiting Myers Park across the road.
A mainstay in this part of Queen St. is the shantytown which lines the other side of Queen pretty much up to the top. While the majority sell tasty and cheap Korean food, you'll spot the populated French gem right in the middle which is perennial.
DIY-crazy New Zealand demands a DIY solution in accommodation which is why a full-blown hotel feels like overkill here. Quest with its kitchenettes, laundry and serviced-apartment style hit the mark.

Room Tip: Ask about the park side

We have stayed here several times and have always encountered friendly and helpful staff - particularly at breakfast time in the lovely little restaurant. The rooms are just perfect with big bathrooms and kitchenettes with everything to allow you to eat in when you want to. We also ask for rooms overlooking Myers Park and get to see great sunsets while in the middle of the city.

nice room with separate bedroom. full laundry facilities in room. stocked with simple breakfast (cereal, milk, orange juice, coffee/tea, etc). friendly staff. off street parking. near K Road and other downtown amenities. the only reason I didn't give it the full 5 is because, like almost all other New Zealand hotels, you are charged for your internet at usary rates. in this case it was $15 a day, which is cheaper than most but still outrageous. I'd recommend this hotel if its location works for you.

Stayed for one night in studio apartment fronting the park. It was so quiet and peaceful. A lovely clean room with a light breakfast supplied, if you want it. People at the reception were helpful and very effecient. A wonderful stay and we're going to stay there again. Try the restaurant...... amazing!!!!

Room Tip: One that overlooks the park/walkway

We stayed here for two nights never having stayed at a Quest property before and were very pleasantly surprised.

Our studio apartment on the 13th floor was spotlessly clean and well-equipped with a huge bed, TV, balcony, washing machine and tumble dryer and a small kitchen. We had views up and down Queen Street. It was pretty much perfect for us.

Both days we had breakfast. The first day we opted for the full New Zealand breakfast and were amazed at how huge it was. The second day (still full from the previous day probably) we had the continental. Both were great and the serving staff and cook in the restaurant were friendly and helpful.

We were so pleased with this Quest that we made a point of staying with them everywhere we could while on our trip around the North Island.

Highly recommended!

I stayed at the Quest in November for work for a period of 10 days. Arrived at night and checked in which was painless and they were very polite and helpful. I had wireless as part of the package and I would recommend this. The wireless signal is very good ( I was on the 11th floor ) although I did notice that it was better in the morning compared to the nights. Also you have to enter your user id and password every day which can be a little frustrating but at least I
was able to use my laptop and phone on the wireless at the same time.
The rooms are not the most modern rooms but they were very clean and everything that is needed is there in an apartment type setup with kitchen, washing facilities etc. I was very happy with everything including the room service and the daily breakfast provisions which was enough for my light breakfast requirement and that was replenished every day.
They provided bread, toast, juice, jams, cerals etc each day. They also provided a sachet of washing powder with more can be purchased at reception for $2. The bed was very comfortable and the amount of clothes space is good so you will not have problems unpacking and finding room for a long stay.
I got the daily paper each morning at an early time ( probably around 6am ) which worked well if you have to leave early each day for work as I did. I never got room service but I had dinner downstairs restaurant and it was of great quality. Not a large choice but enough for a couple of dinners - the deserts are fantastic and would recommend them.
The TV stations are ok not a huge range but if you like sport you will love the choice plus there are a couple of movie stations and news stations so probably enough to keep you entertained. The view is fantastic especially if you are facing Queen St and I was lucky to be there when the xmas parade came past so was able to watch it from the room.
Be aware that facing Queen St the noise from the street below is loud and a couple of times woke me up at night with screaming and shouting. Not sure what it is like from other rooms but I did have the window open at nights so closing the window does help but it can be noisy especially on Fri and Sat nights. Something to be aware of but in saying that it doesn't stop me staying there again.
The location of the hotel is very good with Queen St shops very close and the Metro which has a number of food outlets and cinema which I attended one night. The ferry is at the end of Queen St so easy to catch a ferry to Devonport for example or one of the many other islands.
Overall a very good experience, the staff are very friendly and helpful with smiles all around and always able to help with questions on the local area and organising taxi's. If travelling to the airport ask about the $35 to the airport taxi service which will save you $15 - $20. It has to be paid by cash thou not credit card.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room not facing Queen St
