“A huge dissapointment....litrerally a dump...”
Reviewed 25 February 2005

We were so dissapointed with these apartments. After having stayed in such lovely aoartments and Hotels in Sydney, Auckland gave us an unwelcome with these run down apartments. It seems the owners had never really bothred to maintain this place and rooms were really really aged and tired. The location was not too bad and we were kind of oing just by their website as all the hotels in the city centre did not offer free parking as this one. The reception staff were unprofessional and although helpful , they did not really about the well being of guests. Although these were serviced apartments, our room did not et cleaned until 5 P.M on one day and on complaining to the reception we were not given any helpful answers and nor could we even find any cleaners. Bathroom was terrible and shower cubicle was weird with a metal silver floor and walls making the place cold as ever in the mornings and shower spout was so low that we had to spout to take a shower!!! talk about being in the dark ages.
I am amazed that the standards were so low and even more surprised not to find any reviews on tripadvisor. We hope that with our review travellers will have some additional information about city towers than what we had to start off with.
The price we paid for the room per night was a total rip off and money down the drain.
