On a month long vacation this summer (Dec 2012) with my wife we stayed here at this property in Auckland for a week.The Skycity Hotel at Auckland is an interesting hotel.The constant hustle and bustle of tourists from across the globe is an inherent quality adhered to this place and more so during the peak season.It was Christmas and so the property was jam packed. Many would find the atmosphere in the lobby to be one like in the internationanl terminal of the Auckland airport.
Well we enjoyed this - in an otherwise situation, where could in Auckland you can move around at the wee hours so freely.The omnipresent sea of people made it a truly happening place at any hour of the day. The Disco to restaurants and Casinos all come alive in the darker hours for you to immerse in the unending fun.
Now the Hotel - Clean rooms with decent decor and ambience makes it a comfortable stay.
The higher floors are always preferred if budget is not a constraint.
Bathrooms are good and so are the cute sofas and an appropriate work desk with proper illumination.The Location is Central enough , though the wharfs and via duct harbour are quite a walk from here, for the harbourside location "Sofitel is the best bet".
For sky jumpers - SKY TOWER is "INHOUSE"- LOL. And the bungee swing just next door'
We really enjoyed the stay.(i must say the package)
