The Quadrant Hotel and Suites Auckland
Ranked #27 of 65 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 30 July 2010

Good location and decent decor in this boutique hotel but experience marred by the disappearance of a pair of very unusual and expensive spectacles from my room. (I have worn glasses for 30 years and have never misplaced or lost a single pair till now.) Spoke to the front desk and managers but it came to nought. Will never stay there again as I would not feel safe even leaving day-to-day items in the room.

Also had a similar experience as an earlier reviewer who mentioned that her room smelled like a sewer when they first checked in.

Right next door to the Hyatt, the Quadrant has comfortable beds, small but cozy rooms (studio apartments) and friendly staff.
It is a dead quiet location (couldn't hear anything from floors 9 or 12 when we stayed)and ideal for a base for Auckland - opposite the university.
If you are looking for a good value, unpretentious hotel, the Quadrant is just for you.

We stayed at the Quadrant hotel in Auckland for 4 days during the last week of May 2010. Our room was very clean but as soon as we checked in, I noticed a nasty "sewer" smell coming from the bathroom, particularly seemed to come from the drain in the shower. It was not bad all the time however, so we just put up with it.

The room itself was great, very comfortable (SUPER soft down comforter!) but the sewer smell would be worse than others at times, so we'd keep the toilet door shut a lot of the time. Once, when we came back in the room after a long day out, the maid had left the window open as well and I assume that it was because of the smell.

I'd recommend this hotel because of the location and the price is great. They need to do something about that smell though.

Arriving late into Auckland, we got the Super Shuttle from the airport, which is a great way to get into Auckland, and very inexpensive. Arrange online for a shared ride, and regardless of the number of passengers, they leave very often and you will be to your hotel in no time.

The Quadrant - with its included breakfast buffet of fruits and cereals - is a great bargain. The rooms are not huge, but a very comfortable bed, great balcony with an even better view (we were on 18th floor), great stand-up shower, and a mini kitchen with free internet makes it great for travelers of all kinds. I would stay there upon our return to Auckland.

The gym is tiny, but with some promise, although the eliptical trainer does not work properly, they do have some free weights and a bench, and a treadmill.

There is a cute, small bar if you want to have a drink and meet other guests, too.

We were able to borrow an umbrella from the front desk for our morning walks, and then strolled around the shopping area in the heart of the city, which is very cool, albeit more than we wanted to pay. There is a place called Wishbone with sandwiches and soups that was fantastic, and we stored leftovers in the fridge in the room, which is always nice.

We checked out the great parks around us and had just a great time in the city, having never been before. There is not a ton to do, but it is very clean and not too busy.

As we were first timers to Auckland we found the Quadrant Hotel to be a welcoming and friendly experience. Great central location we were able to walk to the Skytower, Viaduct, and the Brittamart centre for buses etc. .
I would just lke to thank the team at the Quadrant for a wonderful and relaxing time.

This was the last place we stayed on our trip and it was really very good, it had a fresh modern feel to the place and we were booked into an apparentment there with a good view of the city. I would happily stay here again, the staff were all very friendly and helpful,

Booked The Quadrant through Zugi after reading great reveiws about it in Trip Advisor. Husband was attending a First Aid conference and we decided to invite our daughter along as her 21st birthday present.

-Service was outstanding. Flew in from Australia and arrived at the hotel 2 hours before check-in. Asked if we could store our baggage and we would go out for a walk until check-in time came around. Better than that, they told us our room was ready and we could go straight up.

-At time of booking had requested a room with a nice view to make it memorable for our daughters 21st. Were given a balcony room on the 23rd floor. The view was amazing.

-Our bedroom was very modern and comfortable, although a tad compact.

-Daughters room small but comfortable.

-Beds and pillows amazing.

-Bathroom roomy with divine smelling complimentary shampoo , soap etc etc. No bath, but we are all shower people so it suited us perfectly. There were a couple of cracked floor tiles and toilet roll holder was loose and kept falling off but these are only small quibles.

-Some jubilant guests (a young rock band also staying at the hotel) knocked on our apartment door to invite us to a party in their room late one night. As tempting as the offer was, we sensibly turned it down. This was the only noise that we encountered during our 4 night stay.

-Check out was slow, but that is to be expected with approx 20 guest are all trying to check out at the same time. Not a problem to store our bags while we wandered around town for 4 hours. They even kindly offered to book a taxi to take us to the airport on our return. Lucky that they did, because the taxi ramp around the corner at the Hyatt was empty.

-Yay. Free WiFi. Spent time on our laptops researching and mapping our Retro/Op Shop Tour(we created for ourselves). Do yourself a favour and get down to K'Rd.

Thanks The Quadrant.....You helped make our daughter's 21st memorable.
