Ibis Budget Auckland Central
Ranked #55 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The room is not much different to some of the hostels i've stayed in across Europe. The price is kinda worse than what you paid for.
We were on the 1st floor, outside the "window/balcony" was i guess a place for people to smoke as there were leftover butts there and you can hear people there in the morning. They supplied Earplugs... i thought that was funny, but hey... you need them!
The room is small, but for sleeping purposes.. this doesn't matter unless it is what you care about.
The fan from the bathroom is extremely noisy, so you wouldn't want to turn those on in the middle of the night.
The staff were quite, abrupt. Not rude yet not friendly...

On a better note, the hotel is in a great location, Auckland is small though... most hotels are in a good location. So you can't really go wrong.

Though this hotel does have a great location if you are walking around Auckland, my sister and I were shocked at the condition and size of the room and general hotel. First of all, the hallways had motion sensor lights so as you opened your door or stepped out of the elevator you were in darkness. The room had two twin beds that had 4 inches of space between them and the room was about 8ft by 8ft. The bathroom was a single unit with no distinct shower stall so you ended up hitting the toilet with your legs and everything was soaked when you had a shower. The walls and flooring showed significant wear and tear. The TV had no reception and the surrounding bars meant it was loud most nights. The included breakfast was dry, stale and not worth eating. This is really a backpackers hostel with the name of a hotel.

A last minute booking by the office had me stating at this hotel.

Never again.. If it wasn't for the great reception staff I would not even have given it a star.

The room was tiny, the bed, well I can only suggest that hippos had been sleeping in it as it was the worst I have ever had in literally thousands of hotel bed nights I have had. The wardrobe was laughable. It was a cupboard in the wall 1 meter of the ground, I couldn't reach the coat hanger to hang my clothes up. No room to put my bag down.... The bathroom, well best left unsaid I think. A sink was in the room as were 2 hot plates.. They were so old it was scarey.

I hope that you don't like watching tv.. The smallest cheapest one available is in the room with no remote.

Ideal person for this hotel is a backpacker who doesn't care. Why it is in the Accor hotel group is amazing.. I thought that they had a certain standard but apparently, if they do it doesn't apply to this hotel.

Note to self... Avoid this brand !

Dirty, so noisy at night the ear plugs supplied we not good enough. Booked and paid for two nights but left after the first.
Blanket on the bed has a very strong smell.
Very small bathroom area.
Way too expensive for the level offered.

It does have good location, right in the middle of Auckland CBD and just off Queen Street. The rooms aren't to special but if it's for a quick stop over or something where you don't plan on spending a lot of time in the room then it would probably be perfect for yourself. There was only one lift working at the time which was a bit of a hassle. Staff though at reception were great.

I was hoping that the room would be a bit better than it was based on the very modern and welcoming entrance foyer. Tiny beds and rooms are very dated. We stayed in a twin room and really struggled with the lack of space. Cannot fault the friendly staff or the location.

As other reviewers have accurately pointed out, this is a budget property only suitable for transiting purposes. However, on the positive side of the ledger , the Management were very helpful and kind while it is an easy place to pick up transport to the Airport from, especially of an early morning.
It was pleasing to note that the front desk staff were so responsive to ours and other guests' needs. This isn't always the case for budget properties.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms facing Wyndham St. are a bit better.
