We booked for 2 nights so we could attend the Bruce Springsteen Concert. On arrival we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment on the 8th floor, which was greatly appreciated. The apartment was spacious, clean and had all the amenities required if staying longer. The first night, which was a Friday, we didn't sleep very well which is not unusual because we never sleep well on the first night away from home. Anyway we could hear the noise on the street from people yahooing on their way home from a night out and because the building is right next to the Auckland Police Station we heard a number of vehicles leaving with lights and sirens on. The apartment also got very warm and uncomfortable during the night, but this was rectified by putting the air con on. Breakfast in the morning, which was part of the deal average to say the least. It comprised of a piece of a muffin, apple, muesli bar, 250ml mango juice and a yoghurt. Needless to say we went out for a cooked breakfast. To be honest you'd be better off not offering continental breakfast if that is what's served every time because you'll invite negative comments. 2nd night after the concert we slept very well. The location is very convenient to the CBD. Approximately a 10 minute walk to the Viaduct and Britomart, 3 mins to Sky City, 5 mins to Queen Street shopping. Overall for the price, which was about $120 a night, we were please with our stay and would stay here again.
