Clean and Comfortable budget hotel Dec 13, 2016
We booked this hotel long before we arrived in Auckland to get the advantages of the special price offer from

The hotel location is perfect for our need. It is right at the city center, within walking distant to the Sky City Casino, Convention Centre, Aotea Centre, Entertainment Centre, University, and close to the harbour and opposite the AA center since I need to renew my new driver license. It is also close to all major public transport.

We arrived early around 10 am in the morning, unfortunately our room was not ready yet. So we leave our luggage at the hotel and then head out to the AA center to renew my driver license.

We come back around 11.30 am and our room was ready. The reception guy was very friendly and informative. He gives us a free city map and the necessary information about the hotel and how to go to our room. We collect the luggage and then go in the room which located at the 4 or 5 floor (I do not remember now). The room itself quite basic and on the small size around 15sqm with private en suite bathroom and a cupboard to put the stuff inside. There were big windows in the room but we do not have much view from there. If you have a couple of big luggage, it is probably too small in the room and not much space to move around. Luckily we have a quiet room without any neighbour next to the room, so we can sleep well at night time, especially after a long flight from Hong Kong.

The bed was comfortable and the shower water pressure working well with hot and cold water. They give two free mineral water bottle just on the day we arrived. We stayed for 2 nights and the next day we did not get any mineral water bottle. The cleaner was a bit noisy in the morning, however they clean the room and tidy up everything and give a new towels as well.

There are plenty of shops, restaurants and mini market next to the hotel if you need to buy something.

The buffet breakfast offer in the hotel was good value for money, as there were plenty of selections from cold and hot dish with free juice and coffee or tea included. We have to pay extra for the breakfast as it was not included in the hotel room rate. I do not remember how much does it cost, probably around NZ$15 for buffet breakfast.

The hotel offer taxi service to the airport at the reduce price compare with the normal price advertise everywhere, and it was cheaper than taking the shuttle bus service from the airport, and we take advantage of this and book the airport transfer from the hotel. I think this place is good value for money but do not expect any luxuary.
