Auckland Rose Park Hotel
Ranked #31 of 65 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

Good location.
If you book a twin room it says it has double beds. They aren't! They are king singles so not suitable for sharing.
The rooms don't have air conditioning so get hot in summer.
Really needs a renovation.
Value wise it's not expensive.

Good afternoon zkpilot,

Thank you for taking the time to give us such valuable feedback. We do take pride in our location and value so your comments are very much appreciated.

We are currently undergoing renovations of our public areas after completing our rooms. Auckland is certainly experiencing a warmer summer than usual and this is about to end as we enter winter.

Thank you again for your feedback,

Stayed for 1 night only and had 2 rooms in different areas of the complex. The service was excellent, rooms were spotless and beds comfortable. Unfortunately we had a room on the second floor that had a sliding door that faced the road. As there was no air conditioning we really needed the door open but the road noise was terrible hence no sleeping in! I would stay again however I would request a room away from the road. The couple with us stayed were very happy with there room as it was located at the back area of the complex.

Room Tip: request a room away from the road.

Stayed here for two nights. Room was clean, bed very comfy. Bathroom needs a make over.
Great location walking distance to Parnell and harbor. Even there was renovation going on, it was quiet. Only noise was from the neighbours.

Pros: good location, some staff was friendly, room was clean
Cons: no ac, windows have to be open to cool the room which allows families of mosquitos to stay with you, guy got stuck on elevator for 30 minutes, beds are not that good, refrigerator barely kept water bottles cool, toilet had problems flushing, very loud due to buses and helicopters, no free internet or local calls, ...

Room Tip: Rooms at a different hotel are bound to be better.

Stayed here for two nights with my daughters. Older, slightly tired rooms but quite adequate. Very stuffy and hot. First night we used the ceiling fan; second night discovered the portable fan in the wardrobe and that made things a lot more pleasant.

Minimal traffic noise; but some noise from neighbours talking (and smoking?) outside the room.

Plenty of parking. This and the location would make this a great spot to stay again. Easy walking distance to downtown Auckland and the lantern festival.

VERY good value too.

This hotel offers ample free parking which, for a hotel close to the city centre is a considerable bonus. A bus which stops immediately outside the hotel every 30 minutes, gets you in to central Auckland in about 6 minutes, thanks to the bus lanes. The hotel is currently being refurbished. Our room was clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities. The the bathroom was a little tired, it was perfectly adequate. Breakfast in the restaurant overlooking Rose Park with glimpses of the harbour was the standard international hotel fare and the evening meal provided a reasonable choice - including a range of green vegetables, rare in many modern menus. A hotel well worth considering if you're happy to be a kilometer from the city centre.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Rose Park have a great view and the morning sun, but do get the traffic, though th...

Hotels with ample free parking close to a city centre are difficult to fine. This hotel however has this rare facility which makes it attractive for the motoring tourist. It's well situated opposite a large rose garden with a partial views of the harbour. Buses, which stop immediately outside the hotel take 6 minutes to get to downtown Auckland for the cost of $2 to $3 and run every half an hour. Parnell Village is about a 20 minute walk away. The hotel is currently being refurbished. Our rooms were fresh and clean and well appointed. The restaurant offers the standard international hotel breakfast and the sustaining evening meal - which can include green vegetables which is a rare commodity in the world of the trendy eaters. A hotel with a reasonable tarrif, worth considering.
