Ibis Budget Auckland Central
Ranked #53 of 65 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

Disappointed with the room. Very back packer like accommodation. Room had a bad smell and when I went to reception to complain I was questioned about the smell by the young receptionist. The more senior receptionist intervened and told his colleague to give us another room. This room wasn't much better but at least the smell wasn't as bad. Very noisy outside as near main road and bars but they do provide ear plugs. Shower tap fell off in my hand! Also, on Accor's website (who own Ibis) they state all their hotel check out times are 11am but we were told it was 10am even after querying it. When checking out we asked to leave our baggage for a few hours with reception. Every other hotel we have stayed at will offer this as a complimentary service but the Ibis Styles charge $5 for it!
Would not return to this hotel!

This hotel is the worst I have stayed in. Tiny room, noisy, the carpet was damp. The TV was very old and barely worked. You know you're in trouble when the room comes with a camomile teabag and earplugs.

Without doubt this hotel is the most disgraceful hotel I have ever stayed. I am shocked that Accor would allow such a substandard hotel to be part of their chain. The rooms are ridiculously small which is sometimes expectable but the bathroom/toilet is not much bigger than an aeroplane toilet. The towels had brown stains on them and they forgot to service the room on one occasion. There was no cupboard to hand my suit except what was a smelly meter box. No air-con meant having to leave balcony door open which meant no sleep as the all night city noises were a nightmare. The ear plugs provided (warning signs when I saw them) didn't help. A cockroach crawled across the kitchen bench and it was humourless to see you could actually cook in the unit considering there was nowhere to eat. The tiny TV set came with no remote control, no big deal considering your feet nearly touched the screen when in the bed. The staff tried to be helpful but they couldn't book any other accor hotel in Auckland. When checking out I was dismayed to see they served the breakfast in the lobby. I will never return.

This place wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. very very small rooms, the equipment all needed a bit more care. We were on level 6 and could hear the nightclub next door, but it wasn't as bad when we shut the windows, but beware there is no air con so can get stuffy. I suppose it wasn't great but we still felt that it was on value considering it was so cheap, so if all you need is a place to rest your head, it will do.

1. Did not know you could get a room as small as this and be called a Hotel
2. Had a smell in the air that was hard to figure out, but it was unpleasent
3. Had a person with luggage open our door with key given at reception, lucky we were decent!.
Of all the hotels/motels we have ever stayed at, this would be the worst ever, needless to say if we are going to stay in the city again, we would pay more for another hotel.

Rooms were very small, smelly and dirty. No air conditioning or heating. Bathroom flooded when using the shower. Room very noisy during the night, nightclub patrons and garbage movements meant that the free ear plugs were required but offered little relief. TV remote did not work. The corridors were dark and dinghy. Staff were helpful. But there is noway in the world that I'd stay here again.

First the good things. The location is excellent being close to the harbor and central Auckland.
That's all!. We have stayed at other Ibis hotels and found them good value but this certainly isnt!
Tiny room, hardly room for a suit case, poor facilities and a bathroom so tiny that the shower wet everything, including the toilet. We asked for a quiet room and got one on the 13th floor but it was still noisy. We stayed for 2 nights and the room was not serviced on the first morning. Go to a hostel instead would be my advice.
