“home-feel boutique hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

We loved this hotel the moment we got to the reception: a nice old building elegantly renovated with lots of personality. The rooms are originally decorated but still elegant, we loved the black tiled big bathroom. The common areas have an earthy, inviting home feeling. Breakfast was included and very good. The location is superbe, right in the center but in a small quiet street, next to a pedestrian area.
The staff were helpful AND cheerful. There is all round room service, although the quality of the food was not great. Maybe the only room for improvement

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

Located centrally in Auckland, small but beautifully redesigned, with very well appointed bedrooms (although fairly small) & an excellent bathroom. It is obvious that whenever the redesign was done they had cash to spend on quality furnishings and artwork. They did a great job! Staff were first class!

We stayed at this lovely downtown hotel two nights before embarking on a cruise ship, and our stay couldn't have been better. From the moment we checked in, we were impressed with the service and amenities of this unique property. Though very small, the bedrooms are well appointed and beds extremely comfortable. Bathrooms have been modernized and ours had both a free-standing tub plus a shower. We worried about street noise, as our room faced one of the main streets, but "double-glazed" windows insured quiet nights. The included continental breakfast was quite nice, and additional heavier breakfast entrees could be ordered for an upcharge. A lovely private guest reception in the hotel's library was hosted by the owner, and we enjoyed meeting her and some of the other hotel guests. Service provided from the staff was excellent on all counts. Would love to stay here again!

Short stay in Auckland, one of the lighlights was this lovely hotel, Great location short wall to everything, helpful, friendly and very personal service. Lovely decor in the hotel, especially in bedroom and bathrooms , very chique but with a lovely retro feel.

Bed and breakwast was good value, dined in restaurant one evening and food was great.

Room Tip: we had room on second floor which had much larger bathroom

We stayed just one night at the weekend. The service was exceptional from the moment we arrived. We were shown to our room and had the facilities pointed out to us along the way. Nice welcome!
The room was funky! Very cool. With plenty of space. Bathroom was small but also well decorated. Loved the style of the room.
We arrived back to our room late (after midnight) and asked the receptionist if we could get room service and the duty manager (?) came out and offered us a snack in the bar. She took us up to the bar, arranged a drink for us and toasted sandwiches and fries. Fitted the bill nicely. Thank you so much for that!
Every person we came across was exceptionally polite friendly and professional.
I loved the hotel and can't wait to go back. The decor is very cool. The location is perfect. But it was the service that makes it stand out.
A great stay.

The team at Hotel De Brett were amazing. From the fabulous Olivia to the wonderful Santi, the staff made our big day unbelievably stress-free and magical. Thank you so much. All of our friends who stayed loved their rooms, and the rose petal heart on our bed was the final touch on a perfect day.

Very friendly and helpful reception staff. We had a living room, very small bedroom (barely room to get round the bed sides) and luxurious large bathroom. Very restful environment despite being convenient for all Auckland's attractions / shops. Best breakfast coffee we had in New Zealand, also excellent orange juice and toast. We enjoyed a dinner in the restaurant although choice was a little limited.
