Reviewed 13 August 2014

We stayed at the Rydges from last Friday till Monday. At check in we asked for a quiet room with a bathtub and a window that opens. Our requests were met and we were happy with the room. But it was not clean. We told a list of things to reception that needed to be addressed. Since we did not want to move rooms, housekeeping serviced our room again while we went out. When we returned there was only the lipstick whiped of the tiles. What about the other obvious things (dirty bathroom floor, mirror, greasy and marked benchtop, hairs in the bathtub, dirty jug, bedside tables, body prints on wooden headboard)? I did some cleaning myself, problem solved.
We enjoyed the central location and the food at the hotel. Thanks to all the friendly helpful staff at reception, restaurant, housekeeping our overall experience was very good.

Hotel is located in the heart of the city
A stone throw from dinning, pleasure, bar and casino
2 mins walk to the Auckland sky tower where the casino is located and lots of restaurants and heritage lies

We had a great night's stay here. It is shame that breakfast isn't included but we found a great bakery nearby. Very friendly staff and comfy bed too! The location was perfect as the hotel is but a few minutes walk from the harbour, central shopping area and in spitting distance of the sky tower. I'd definitely return.

Check in was fuss free and efficient. The double bed room was fairly generous in size and very clean. The only thing we felt that could be improved on was the toilet - it's a bit outdated. location and free wifi are double thumbs up.

The service was quite good . We were attended to within 5 minutes and handed our car for valet parking for which we had to pay as it was not included .The room was nice - double bed with all the basic amenities , tea - coffee , iron with board . Loved the bathroom design which included the bath and toilet together but had a wash basin outside with a side mirror which was full length.
The valet parking was a good decision as we had to go out later that night and our car was waiting downstairs after we requested it on phone .The buffet breakfast was included and it was a decent experience .The only thing I missed was the swimming pool however they had a 24 hour gym which I couldn't visit due to lack of time

Room Tip: I cant particularly indcate a choice

Popped in here for a couple of nights and enjoyed my stay, the hotel met all of my prerequisites for a business stop over, which are a comfy bed, quiet, clean and functional room. The hotel restaurant and bar are staffed with friendly and obliging staff and I'd definitely stay here again, when next I'm in Auckland.
