The Hotel is located right next to a city park and on a quiet street. It is one block over from Queen Street, the main drag in downtown Auckland where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. It is about 1 mile from the ferry terminal, and an easy walk.
The room was clean, the bed was comfortable but nothing special beyond that. We did have a small balcony that overlooked the city.
The biggest problem was the air conditioner. It was a stand alone unit that was extremely loud. Since it shuts off when you leave, the room is warm when you return so you have to have it on during the summer. It was also not very efficient so it banged away all night. It was hard to hear the TV over the noise.
The shower door also did not fit snuggly against the top of the tub, so the floor flooded whenever we showered.
Common with most other hotels in New Zealand, Internet access was expensive - $30 a day from the room- or you could get access for 30 min in the lobby but it was very slow. The breakfast was not included in our room rate and it was expensive, around $24, so we picked stuff up from the grocery to keep in the room.
