“NEVER AGAIN - DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY THERE EVEN IF CHEAP PRICE”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

We were moving to Auckland for good and had previously booked this room for Australian $50 a night while we sought out a rental property, a true bargain we thought! We were so wrong! There was nothing nice about this place other than its location. We would rather have gone down the road and paid 3 times the price for a decent hotel, or even paid the same price at a backpackers. During our 5 night stay (we left 2 nights early as soon as we found a rental) our hard-drive was stolen. We had it on the first night and remember using it, then it disappeared. The hotel staff insist this was not the case, but we could not find it anywhere after turning the whole place inside out. Very disappointing as it contained all our wedding photos as we had just got married! The rooms are tiny, crammed and VERY smelly, bath towels were disgustingly smelly we didn't want to shower, shower was dirty and of course mouldy and smelly! The staff were not helpful at all and looked like they didn't want to be there. Would not reccommend this place to anyone!!

Hotel in a great central location. Poorly maintained Hotel. One of the two lifts did not work in the 18 storey Hotel, meaning long delays to get to the rooms. Was given a card to get into the wrong room, surprising myself and a fellow hotel stayer. The smallest room I have ever stayed in.

We booked this cheap as Accor members. I wish we had taken our money down the road to the Mercure.
We arrived at 2am - the only advantage to this being that the lift was waiting on the ground floor for us.
The lift had blood stains smeared across one wall. (well, we think they were blood), and it was the only working lift. Thankfully we were only on level 3, so we took the stairs a lot.

The rooms at the back look out over a local bar, which had the bass pumping so loud the bed was vibrating until 2am both Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday night it also sounded like there was a fight in the street below and an altercation in our floor hallway.

This seems to be a place where a lot of people stay to head out and party. If we had known this, we wouldnt have chosen this location either. The lack of space to hang clothes was frustrating, but the lack of anywhere out of the way to even put our bags was worse. We refused to pay $20 to get a couple of pots and pans to use our small hot-plate, which was covered in stuff anyway as it was the only sizeable flat surface to unpack onto.

The bed was clean, the towels were changed daily even though we hung them for reuse.

If you have a laptop, take it down to Queen Street and find the McCafe or Starbucks, the both offer free wi-fi, far cheaper than the rates here.

But no, we wouldnt stay here again. I dont think I've had a worse nights sleep in a long time.

I got this room last minute for NZ$65 so absolutely cannot complain about the price. The room was basic and only minimal blankets so it became quite cold during the night.
There was quite a bit of mould in the bathroom so cleaning is obviously only kept to a minimum.
Whilst I was there there was only one lift out of two operating which meant that there was a long wait for the elevator at times. The lift was our of order for the 24 hours that I was there which made me wonder whether it worked at all.
When I requested for a hair dryer I was informed that it would cost $15!!! Thats crazy. Seriously. I could almost buy one for $15. I know the room is cheap ... but come on, seriously? And I have short hair. So I would have used it for what, 3 minutes?!
In the future I would invest in a few extra dollars and stay somewhere with a few more frills i.e. providing the basics like working elevators and hairdryers. All seasons is basic and ok. But I wouldn't recommend it.
