Quest on Eden
Reviewed 23 November 2011

Suitable for business travel, with plenty of place to meet/work - but a very slow (almost dysfunctional) internet connection. Fine if you need to be in the vicinity of Chancery and prefer to self-cater. No luxury or service, but full laundry equipment in your apartment and plenty of restaurants around - small grocery story downstairs for provisions.

Don't go expecting a 5 star luxury hotel, that isn't the Quest on Eden!

Booked for a single night, location a priority over anything else. Adrian, the manager, was pretty helpful in getting us a parking space, but as they were fully booked we ended up needing to find a spot on the street upon our return - and there were none. We managed to get into the garage (and it is a very tight fit) and find a space, but unfortunately upset some permanent residents. We were able to sort this with Adrian in the morning.

The room was pretty compact, we required a twin room and were on the 9th floor (9B) facing Eden Crescent. There was some minimal traffic noise, but better than I had expected. The kitchen area was well equipped, including a dish washer, and the bathroom had a washer and a dryer. The shower had a good flow and was very warm.

The main room area was a little dated, e.g. a CRT TV, but at least there were a selection of Sky channels (although the remote could do with new batteries)

Breakfast is at the Cafe Gloria about 2 mins around the corner - note, this includes up to $7.50 off any menu choice, or a selection from a menu. Your coffee isn't included, but it was the best $3.50 Cappuccino ever! The selection on offer were as good as I have had at other similar hotels. The cafe was very nice too.

One thing to consider is that the area is quite hilly, so if you are on foot and are less agile this may not be the best choice.

Dont be fooled with the photos they post on the internet. It was a horrible experience, the room was smelly and furniture was very old. The apartment was so dusty that i was sick both days while i was there, To top up the shower was broken. When we booked they said there was parking but when we went there, the car park was full. we had to park on the road buy buying tickets. My whole auckland trip was spoiled with this experience. If your going with young kids, this is the worst place.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights on the finals weekend of the RWC in a studio room. Overall it was OK and reasonably quiet but the room was stuffy and not really that clean. We had to pay $400/night with a 2 night minimum stay which I felt was a bit over the top even given the pressure on accommodation due to the Cup. The rack rate for a studio room is normally $220 and now that the cup is over studio rooms are being offered for $120/night which leaves a bit of a sour taste in the mouth!

I stayed at this property in late September. Even though it was during the World Cup, the price of $300 a night for a small studio room was a complete rip off. The room had a terrible smell and it was not maintained as it had a hole in the wall. Also do not expect your room to be cleaned if you return to it late afternoon. I was told that if you want it cleaned earlier, then you should ask. The parking is also VERY difficult to get in and out of. For the same or less price, avoid this place at all costs. Go somwehere else. I sent a complaint to Quest Aus and NZ, and only received an email back from the franchise owner of Quest. Not good enough.

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs.

I stayed at Quest on Eden in a serviced apartment from March till September and found the experience very good. The apartment was comfortable, very quiet, and the staff was unfailingly helpful and friendly at all times. And I liked the area very much; this Quest is close to the centre of town but also close to the green spaces of Albert Park and the Old Government House. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at Quest on Eden twice this year,once in a 1 bedroom apartment,and the other time in a studio apartment on the 9th floor,which had a great view of the harbour. The rooms are tidy and cosy,and with the windows shut it's very quiet,some other hotels are situated near busy roads etc,so you may not sleep as well as if your staying at Quest on Eden. The beds were very comfortable to sleep on,and showers and kitchen were good.
The location is great as it's near the downtown/harbour area,and also near queen street.
Carparks are available in the basement,but if your car is large,you need to be careful parking down there,as you may damage it,it's very tight on space down there.

The Staff are all very friendly,and always give you a smile,I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Eden Crescent side are a little quieter than the ones facing the harbour area.
