Reviewed 8 March 2014

Not a bad example of the Sebel range - there was a vast difference between the 'good' side and the not so great when it came to views. Sadly, we didnt get a mariner view - had the luxury of the carpark view instead. What strikes me as totally mind blowing in todays tech driven age is the lack of Wifi in rooms. A small lobby lounge provided free wifi but to really compete today free wifi in rooms is a MUST. Easy walking distance to the city, or harbourside restaurants - rooms are clean and neat little more basic than luxurious but otherwise comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbourside room

Dear SG,
Great to hear your feedback from your recent Trip advisor post, based on your feedback it sounds like you booked one of our lead in room types. While these rooms offer all of the requirements of a quality studio room, we do encourage our guests to book one of our Marina View rooms to enjoy the view and the vibrancy of the viaduct. I do agree that we need to improve the quality of WIFI throughout the hotel which is something we are currently reviewing.

Thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel.

Kind regards
Shane Edwards

Front desk need to tell the truth if room is not going to ready for 1 hour say so and then offer something while you wait, (e.g. coffee, internet ) We arrived 1.30 on the off chance we may be able to check in, told to come back at 2.00pm, 2.00 pm was told room not ready but wouldn't be long 15 mins, 2.20 went back only to be told again room not ready, finally at 3.00pm i asked again only to be told yet again still not ready, go take a seat and we will call you, about 5 mins later we were given keys, room was on 5th floor looking over Viaduct very nice , just can't say the same about the room very tied, broken floor tiles, mould in shower, vanity rusting , paint scrapes almost on every wall.

Room Tip: Nice area try another hotel

Dear KiwisteveBrisbane,

Thank you for providing us with your recent feedback along with photos. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations on your recent stay. With regards to your check in experience I have followed this up with both my reception team and housekeeping department. I agree that check in is at 2pm and we should have rooms available at this time. Unfortunately on this occasion this did not happen and while hotels do experience delays from time to time we strive to ensure rooms are ready on time after a 11am check out and 2pm check in.With regards to the room, this has been given to our maintenance team to investigate and resolve.

Once again my apologies for not meeting expectations and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards

Shane Edwards

The room is more like an apartment than a normal hotel room. It was fully fitted with kitchen and washing/drying equipment, had seating and dining facilities and a balcony with a fantastic view of the harbour. Only let down by a slightly ageing bathroom and the lack of restaurant/shopping facilities in the hotel, although there are plenty of others nearby.

We have stayed here twice now. Fantastic place to stay. Even though you are amongst bars and restaurants, very quiet rooms. Beautiful large rooms. We always choose a room overlooking the viaduct and we love it. Thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Auckland. Close to the night life buzz, with some great bars and restaurants surrounding it. I have stayed at the Hilton in Auckland and i would prefer to stay at the Sebel - nicer rooms and better views, and better on your wallet :)

Room Tip: Pay a little bit more and get a great room overlooking the marina. If you book in advance you gener...

The Sebel Suites overlook the harbour in the centre of Auckland. They are superbly appointed, with high quality appliances & furnishings. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay again and recommend them to all travellers.

If you want to be close to everything, look no further. Right in the Viaduct area adjacent to cafes, bars and restaurants. Nice water views of the harbour.

Rooms are getting a little tired but still quite OK for a short stay. Remember to use the air-con as no opening windows which made things a bit stuffy. I would stay their again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to be within walking distance to all the action.

Room Tip: 6th floor and ask for a water view room

We were upgraded to this hotel and were very happy about it. For three adults we had two bedrooms one very large with view of viaduct and one small which was okay for us as the third person expected to be in living room. Plus we had two bathrooms. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is the best and the noise from the bars below didn't bother us at all...we were there Saturday and Sunday nights. Will always stay here in future.

Room Tip: We had marina deluxe which looked over the water.
