                          A very convenient location, friendly and most helpful staff at all levels from the management to housekeeping staff. It is reasonably and competitively priced and ticks all the boxes for a comfortable stay in Auckland.

                          Staff, cleaning, location, everything. The rating 8 depends also on the price, too high by my opinion.

                          Isn't impossible reserve by credit card but pay by cash, I would prefer, avoiding the surcharge. Using the wifi Internet, it's annoyng the way of the connection, not simple and too often going down.

                          I made this booking for our friends as part of their engagement gift, they loved it!!!, They said is was soooo nice they wanted to shift in lol. They had a blast. Very close to Family Bar.

                          The bed, bathroom and lounge area were comfortable and there was no noise from neighbouring rooms.

                          The breakfast was poor, low quality ingredients and not enough. The staff at the desk took 3 days to refund an amount mistakenly deducted from my account. While there was double glazing the room remained noisy from outside noise, however we were at the front beside the police station. Oters we knew had quieter rooms.

                          It was very central, clean and tidy and modern. Had a wonderfully equipped kitchen which was superb.

                          Friendly helpful staff. Spacious 2 bedroom unit. Balcony. Handy parking below hotel. Short walk to Queen St, movies, etc. Modern

                          We could hear quite loud footsteps from guests in floor above in the middle of the night.

                          The location was perfect for us and as a family of five the two completely seperate bedrooms was great. We thought it was an excellent price.

                          Went to Disney on Ice and the Casino and had a wander around the area

                          The lack of parking is an issue

                          I feel it needed to state that you had to pay for parking, other than that a found the hotel really nice and would stay again.

                          Good sized room, well serviced, flat screen tv

                          Very inadequate 'continental' breakfast (no choice offered) , air duct filter was solid with dust and not cleaned despite informing the front desk, internet connection was poorly explained and the option I was given was patently inappropriate. There was quite a bit of noise from the room above but probably this was due to lack of noise protection rather than boisterous tenants

                          Very helpful staff. Good location. Reasonably priced.

                          Hotel was incredibly hot & stuffy. The aircon in the room did not work at all. Despite being mid July we were very uncomfortable due to the heat. When I looked at the filter to the aircon intake it was blocked solid with thick dust etc. This is the second time we've stayed here, both rooms had this problem.

                          Close to the city, bigger rooms for a family visit.Had a great stay, will be back!

                          We really liked the staff who were always friendly and obliging. We also liked the hotel itself, the layout of the rooms and it's location in relation to the city centre.

                          The only shortcoming was that the room was very warm and circulation was limited. Opening the windows and door onto the balcony was very noisy so was not really a solution.

                          Good deals via the internet website, and the on-site parking.
