      Internet costs nz$25 a day, but really slow. If you came to Auckland to see and enjoy the city, choose a location closer to Victoria St./Queen St./Quay St.

      Modern and efficient design. Rooms were clean and comfy. Staff were extremely helpful. Great value for a city hotel near the cbd area.

      Expensive parking. Easily remedied by parking at the public carpark opposite the hotel though.

      I like the design of the hotel's room, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Free storage was also provided for our luggages as our flight was way later than the checkout time.

      Helpful hotel staff, conveniently situated close to the city/transport. Internet free in lobby for 30 minutes. Nice comfortable room and bed, bathroom all nice and tidy, no complaints at all really apart from the net curtain was a little bit tired and could have done with a good wash!

      A very quiet room also a lower level because I am from Christchurch.

      It was a bit drafty room but small oil heater worked well.

      Location was excellent and the hotel was clean, modern and quiet.

      Good hotel, I'll go back there if I return to NZ

      This was our second stay at the hotel. The twin studio was much more spacious and the beds firmer than the twin room we had during our previous stay. The strong stench from the drainage hole in the previous bathroom was most offensive. It was a great relief that it was not the case for the bathroom in the twin studio.

      My other remarks regarding housekeeping are actually for the twin studio. Improvements are sorely needed. On the other hand, the housekeeper during our previous stay in the twin room did a good job.

    • Older travelers

      Room was spacious and we had portable heaters to keep us warm through the nights. Hotel is about 5 mins walk to Sky Tower and I-Site. It is about 9 mins walk to Queen Street, the famous shopping area. The free city circuit bus from the main entrance of Sky City/Tower made moving around much easier as the roads are mostly up and down slope which is good exercise for the young but not for the older tourists. The free bus also brings you to the stop opposite the Harbour building if you wish to take the catamaran to the islands or Devonport.

      Housekeeping was rather slack. Bedlinen was not changed at all during our 5 days' stay. The housekeeper did not even bother to straighten/tidy the bedsheet but only straightened the bed cover over the sheets. Cups and saucers were clearly not properly or not washed as we noticed coffee stains on the cups when we returned at the end of the day. The hob was also not cleaned.

      The staff were very obliging and did all they could when asked for early check in and later check out Excellent!

      Location is top: very close to Sky City and Queen Street (major shopping street in Auckland downtown). Rooms are nicely furnished, cosy and welcoming feeling.

      Windows are very old and not double glazing, so air may come inside. Building in general is old (though renovated inside) and not wery well insulated/sound proof. Although room decor and bathroom is nice I wouldn't call it four star standard.

      Attended the Sky City Casino - played the pokies for a short while and had tea there. Later attended a 21st in the Cosh Bar Ponsonby which due to the short distance 1.7kms - we were able to walk there and back.Had breakfast next morning in Parnell which is a lovely area and also attended the market in Parnell. Later in the day we went to the Zoo - still close by had a lovely day there. All in all the Auckland City Hotel was in close proximity of everything we did in the City for the weekend. Thanks to all the firendly staff.

      Location, right in the heart of Auckland CBD. Most things are within walking distance

      Corridors to the rooms are narrow with a low ceiling giving the feel of a dorm block rather than a hotel

    • Couple

      We were upgraded to a King Suite which was very unexpexted but much apprecited. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful.

      No Curtain/Blind at kitchen window and window was facing main street so was quite lit, which flooded into the room.

      Access to heart of city, shopping etc.

      Charging for internet for more than an hour
