“Superstar hotel without all the fuss”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed in room 1007 with partial views of the harbour.

Lovely room, modern well maintained decor, very comfy bed and pillows. The best sleep we both had for a long time. Good soubd proofing!

Parking was convenient next to the hotel, and lots of options to choose wrt food within hotel and its surrounds.

Would we stay again without hesitation? Yes!!!

Stayed May 2014

Hotel is quite new -opened in 2010- all rooms are nicely furnished, very good location even less than 100m from SkyTower but... houskeeping is far beyond expectations. It is hard to unpack your things while shelves and drawers are covered with dust a finger thick. Nice glass shelves with glasses and wine bottle unfortunately are on the eyes level therefore you can see that no one was touching them for months- all covered with dust. This makes living very uncomfortable. Staff is friendly but... during 2 weeks it was quite interesting to hear 20 various explanations why it was impossible to issue PriorityGuest member card :-) Broken printer, broken computer, lost password, changed software, Manager on duty knows but he is somewhere in the building - these are just the samples of creativity ;-) Breakfast was quite solid for NZ standards however what I missed were fresh vegetables (tomatoes, salad or even olives). Bar staff should be allowed to drink coffee or at least some energy drinks while it was quite unusual to wait 20-30 minutes to be noticed from behind the bar and be serviced while there were only few guests... and those room windows like in the basement :-)

Room Tip: do not book standard rooms - they are not cleaned properly and room windows are like in the basement...

Have stayed here 4 times now. Staff are very welcoming & always ready to help. Walking distance to Civic Theatre, Aotea Centre, Sky Tower, Vector Arena, Harbour & of course shopping & restaurants. Always a great experience. Rooms are clean & comfortable & have views of the harbour bridge.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the views.

The room is welcoming well furnished, nice bathroom, the front desk staff is most helpful and we had a special at great value. There is car park at an affordable price across the road and once you are parked you do not need your car anymore, we walked to the Quay in 5 minutes, and the Civic Theater and Town Hall are easy walk too

We have never stayed at the Rydges Auckland before and were very surprised. Booking in was very pleasant and they were extremely helpful, even offered us late check out at 12pm. They suggested that we join their rewards program, which gave us an extra hour at no cost.
Close to queen street and Sky City. Parking was at Sky City which was only a block away. Very convenient and very central.
Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Room so great, you don't even need a view

We stayed at Rydges Auckland last weekend and had a thoroughly great time. The position of the hotel in the midst of the Auckland CBD made it so convenient for dining, shopping and sightseeing. The staff were very obliging and I would like to single out Kirsten in the restaurant who not only looked after us, but also our grandchildren who came running in to see us whilst we were dining. But all the staff were great, seeing to our every need. The rooms was lovely and clean, the beds very comfortable and what's more, it was so nice and quiet, despite being right in the middle of downtown Auckland.
