“Fine and a Good Price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

Stay at Kiwi International was fine, nothing to write home about. The price was good and they gave us 50 MB of free WiFi. Room itself is very small, but big enough for two people, the bed, desk and TV. We were even able to re-pack our large suitcases for the trip home. Everything was clean. Good location at the top of Queen Street - don't be afraid to WALK down the hill to find the action!

Thanks for your positive review . Yes our rooms are of modest size but they are very popular given the location and price. Nothing to write home about - I agree. You'd need to spend $500+ per night in NZ to find a hotel worth writing home about!

We stayed here whilst in Auckland on holiday/business in a double room with ensuite (which had a single bed in room as well!) The hotel is in a great location- walkable distance to harbour and viaduct or 50c bus ride. Rooms are basic but if you are only sleeping there- they do the job! Would definately stay again due to the car parking, location and affordability!

we stayed here for 2 nights after a 4 day road trip Auckland-Rotorua-Lake Taupo. Since we rented a car and didnt have prior booking, upon reaching Auckland we drove around Queens Street not really expecting to find any hotel less than NZD100 but we were wrong. At Kiwi International, we stayed in a double room ensuite for NZD92 per night. The room fits two. There is a queen size bed, coffee making facility, hot shower and free internet voucher. Not sure if there's a pool though.There is a small cafe and bar but we didnt try it as we were out most of the time, shopping at Queens Street, trying out numerous cafes, visited the harbour and Sky Tower all walking distance. There are plenty of eateries including Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indian around.The Civic Centre is just 10min walk. Airport bus stops infront or you could call a taxi from the hotel to the airport. We did the latter and paid NZD35. Would definitely stay here if we ever visit Auckland again.

I stayed in a single room for $55 in June 2012. The room was basic but you get what you pay for. Great central location. I recieved 2 free internet vouchers one for each day which was a nice surprise and the staff were very helpful. The room needed a bit of an upgrade and the bedding could have been better. The main negative comment I have is the room was very noisy. The walls must be paper thin because I could clearly hear a guest in the room next to mine talking on his cell phone at 2am in the morning. The fire doors in the corridor also banged shut whenever someone walked up the corridor.....ear plugs are a must! I'm also a bit suspicous about the 2 insects that I found in my bed on the first night so check your bed before you get in it :-) But overall not bad for the price!

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and the generally positive comments. This guest stayed in one of our Economy rooms which are reasonably basic but as the reviewer says, represent good value - and are very popular. We've checked the room and adjusted the fire doors to make them close quietly. Beds appear to be a matter of personal preference. All our singles are the large king single size, all identical and all purchased from the same (NZ's largest) bed manufacturer in the last 24 months. Most people love them.

I stayed here for one night recently and found it to be great for a short layover between flights at Auckland airport. Shuttle bus works well and the rooms are clean and comfortable, and appear to be quite recently renovated. All facilities are up to date and work well.

I have stayed at other hotels in the area and this is the best experience so far. Price was also very good and I will certainly look to staying here again.

During my visit of some pacific islands I had four times an one-night stopover in Auckland and the Kiwi International has been perfect for my needs. Very good connection from and to the airport as the AirbusExpress-Station is right in front of the hotel. Staff has been always friendly and helpful. Rooms clean. As I just needed a place to sleep the small roomsize was not a problem to me. Room 217 has a large window and the room looked a bit like a cabin on a cruise ship.The other rooms I stayed in (107, 111 and 112) have had smaller windows and had not the cruise ship feeling. I also used the laundry (7 NZD - washing machine, dryer, powder). Wifi worked in all rooms good. Sleep quality was good (no noise) and the toilets and showers have been clean.I appriciated the sink in the room. Some korean restaurants are nearby and it is only a short walk to the Central Business Districrt of Auckland. Overall I was very satisfied with Kiwi International Hotel.

Thank you for your comprehensive review. This guest stayed in our economy single rooms over several visits. They are small but very popular with single travelers as they are excellent value and of course they appreciate the central location and facilities.

We stayed in an ensuite room with 1 double and 2 singles. The room wasn't very big but it comfortably fit us for the night we stayed. The bathroom is small but very clean and the shower had great pressure. We were originally due to stay two nights but the snow in Christchurch keep us back for a night. They were really understanding of the late cancellation of one night and didn't make us pay which we were very grateful for. We had breakfast there too and we were
very happy with it for what we paid. It all tasted good and the service was nice. Overall I would definitely recommend Kiwi International Hotel to anyone who may be traveling to Auckland.

Thank you for taking the time to review. Yes - our rooms are of quite modest size and having queens and king singles do take up extra space but worth it we believe for a better sleep experience.
