“Great room and location for the price”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

For the low price we paid, we couldn't have been happier with the spacious and comfortable room. The location is within walking distance of all downtown sights. Our two nights were very relaxing and we would stay again if we return.

Have stayed here three times now for very good reasons.
Excellent service, great location and well appointed rooms and public facilities.
Will definitely make it a 4th stay on my next trip across the ditch

My sister and I booked a twin room for 5 days and were very pleased with our room. The beds were great and there was plenty of room to move.
Bathroom was adequate with everything you need.

We found that room service was quite reasonable and we ordered some food a few times. Just as expensive as going out for a meal.

The staff were always so helpful and polite. Anything we needed was no trouble at all. Even the valet service was really good. A little pricy but not completely unreasonable.

The only setback was that we weren't able to get into our room straightaway even though we'd arrived at 2pm. But soon enough we were able to relax in our room after our early morning flight.

Thanks very much Rydges Auckland for a very pleasant experience.

You have to choose this hotel for the fantastic people working there, they are so helpful, friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we felt very welcome. The hotel itself was immaculate, the décor was perfect and nothing was shabby, the atmosphere in the bar was low key and not garish like some. We would have loved to have been there longer and will return on our next trip to Auckland. The location is perfect for the casino, harbour, banks, shops, restaurants, trendy bars, bureau de change and cafe's. Transport links are also pretty good with a 2 minute (uphill) walk from the airport bus stop, train station isn't too far away either.

Location is perfect as its near skycity, and its in the city centre, staff was very nice especially Assan, he transferred us to a better room and we really love it...it would have been better if parking is part of the bill per night as we still paid for parking separately, and we expected a pool/spa but there was only gym available...although we still enjoye our stay and wifi is really a bonus

No complaints on this hotel. First night the room had a not so private view facing an apt complex. Next morning we asked if we could move to a room with better view. By end of the day we had our new room with a fantastic view of the harbor & bridge & sky tower. Rooms were very clean (i'm very picky),bed& bedding comfortable altho king bed in NZ is queen bed in US. Staff always professional. Concierge Neilven was most helpful & friendly throughout our 5 day stay. Gave us good tips on where to go, how to get there,etc without making us feel as tho we were bothering him. . We would definitely stay here again. It's in a fantastic location downtown and safe & clean.. Highly recommend!!!!

Room Tip: request room with a view if possible. makes a huge difference if you like to have the curtains open!
