We decide to come back and re-stay at the Sky City Hotel once again. On this occasion we had a fantastic stay. We were upgraded and placed in a room right at the far end of the corridor ( which ensured an exceptionally quiet room with NO noise ). We also enjoyed a gorgeous Lunch up at the Orbit revolving restaurant. The included morning breakfast at Fortuna was also a sumptuous feast - a great spread!! My hearty Thanks to the General Manager ( Ida ) for ensuring our stay was simply perfect :)

Room Tip: Ewquest a room far away from the Elevators and passing foot traffic....

Dear Jon,

Thank you very much for your recent review. I am thrilled your return visit was fantastic. Being in a room at the end of our corridors is definitely quieter due to minimal foot traffic in passing, we will be sure to allocate you similar rooms in the future.

Enjoying a delicious meal in one of our lovely Sky Tower Restaurants (Orbit or Sugar Club) is definitely a must do when visiting Auckland and I am pleased you had the chance to experience this.

Thank you for your kind words, the team and myself were delighted to receive your feedback and we look forward to your next visit.

Best wishes,
Ida
Hotel Administrator

To be honest, we didn't expect too much of the SkyCity - especially as it's cheaper and less swanky than its sister hotel. We stayed here for one night after a flight from the UK, with an onwards flight to Queenstown the next morning and it's central location gave us just enough time to nip up the Sky Tower, go for a couple of beers and grab some dinner at the excellent Depot restaurant over the road before moving on. Our room was much larger, more comfortable and more recently refurbished than we expected for the price with a lovely bathroom. Having paid more to stay in an inferior room at the Langham at the end of the trip, I'd definitely choose SkyCity again.

Stayed: December 2013

We began our New Zealand tour from this hotel. Smooth check in, excellent rooms with all modern amenities. The room was quiet spacious. The location is very central. The hotel is part of complex which has casino and Sky towers, which is one of Auckland main attractions. Lot of restaurants on walking distance. Some construction activity around the hotel but it does not disturb. The breakfast was good with fairly decent choices. The staff was polite and courteous.

Room Tip: Ask for harbour view rooms.

Dear Nareshm,

Thank you for your TripAdvisor post. My team and I hope you enjoy your New Zealand tour.

Here at SKYCITY we definitely have one of the best locations in Auckland Central. While the Federal St Construction is not ideal, we are doing our best to ensure the impact it has on our guests is minimised. Upon completion the surrounding areas of SKYCITY will have a fresh new look for all to enjoy.

We hope to welcome you back to SKYCITY during your next visit to New Zealand.

Best wishes,
Ida

This hotel has a great central location. You can pretty much walk to all the main attractions from this hotel. It modern and feels upscale. This was the first stop on our honeymoon tour of New Zealand and Australia. There was no special treatment or acknowledgement that it was our honeymoon, which was a slight bummer. However the location and room style were great.

Note: we drove and valet parking is $35 per day. If you plan on using the car several times a day then this is the better deal. However, if you do what we did and park the car and walk everywhere then the better deal is to park across the street at the Sky City Parking. It says $40 a day but you can buy a pass from the hotel front desk for $20. That $20 covered our two days since we didn't take the car out of the garage.

The hotel is centrally located within walking distance to many restaurants, tourist attractions and restaurants. We had a nice spacious room with a beautiful view of the port. The hotel lobby was also very nice and the staff very professional. However, while we were there they had a construction crew working on the entrance, but it didn't affect our stay.

I am pleased the Federal St construction did not affect your stay as we are doing our best to minimise any impact on our guests. Upon completion this will be a wonderful outdoor area to complement the entrance to the SKYCITY complex.

Once again, thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Stayed one night, from 27. January, and it's good value for money. The hotel is adjacent to the "Sky Tower", and the casino. The staff is polite and helpful. The room was OK, and the wiew was towards Auckland Harbour Bridge. Very nice.

I will recommend this hotel for those who want to stay in CBD.
