Abaco On Jervois
Ranked #6 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Booked Abaco after finding it nigh on impossible to get four nights in downtown Auckland during a business trip (two big cruise ships in town)
It's quite obvious this is an older style motel that has been renovated, but the renovations are tasteful, the rooms are comfortable and clean, the rates are good, and the wifi is free
Best of all it's not far from the bars and restaurants of Ponsonby and it's only a five minute drive to the Viaduct waterfront
If the hotels in town are ever booked out in future, I'l probably stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for a ground or first floor room The climb up to the second floor with a heavy bag will do your...

We stayed here the night my Nan died. Found them on the internet - for some reason nearly all of Auckland was booked! I actually rang just after reception had closed but the guy stayed open for us and organised Mum a shuttle to the airport in the morning. Excellent location, gorgeous room!

A busy weekend in Auckland meant accommodation was at a minimum! We needed a room for the four of us and nothing was available, but Abaco managed to squeeze us in. Our boys, 7 and 8, shared a mattress and bedding on the floor next to our king bed. We had planned to share the bed with the youngest, but he wiggles too much! Haha

The room was very clean and modern. Next time I hope a room with two beds is available! ;)

The only issue was the bathroom floor ... slippery when wet! Having recently had knee replacement surgery, I had some difficulty climbing into and out of the spa bath. I had to stand on a towel in the bath to keep from slipping and hold onto the towel rack for support. Thankfully, it was solidly fastened to the wall! Haha

Stayed here between packing up my house and moving to Melbourne. Excellent spot handy to Auckland central and especially Ponsonby. Nothing was too much trouble even to the point of storing my luggage. Clean tidy accommodation and friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble!! Highly recommended!

I stay here several times a year for work. The rooms are good and have everything you need. Agree it's worth it to upgrade to a suite rather than studio. On a couple of occasions have noticed the shower doesn't drain that well. Great location and easy to get to the city. Dido's tapas bar across the road from Abaco is fantastic.

We have stayed at Abaco twice now (and will again in July and Aug). The rooms are clean, spacious and fully equipped. The little touches also go a long way, teas and coffees are replenished, fresh milk on arrival, servicing of the rooms, friendly staff and very thoughful owners. We are looking forward to our next trip to Auckland in July and staying at Abaco.

Thank you and keep up the good work

Contrary to the one dissatisfied client, I have been staying at Abaco for the last few months on and off. I am an expat from the States. The accommodation at Abaco is by far the best value available in Auckland. In addition, the owners and staff are absolutely fantastic! They run a very good operation and are overly accommodating. I haven't a clue what the gentlemen with the kids is talking about. From this travelling professional's standpoint, I haven't found a better situation than the one at Abaco!

As for the condition of the hotel: the rooms are all remodeled with very nice furnishings. Free Sky TV, good Internet (& wireless), and fantastic service has been my experience.
