This hotel is in the best location. Rooms are clean and tidy. Didn't need AC so can't comment on how loud it is. Very mixed clientele. Limit as to how much free wifi you get - could do with improving that. Didn't eat in restaurant - so can't comment on quality. Can stress enough how great the location is!

Room was excellent. Everything was clean and tidy and a good size room. We took our 3 grandkids for 3 days and it never felt too cramped to move about. Had a huge mirror on clothes cupboard to the delight of our one grandchild. Small kitchenette with microwave, jug, toaster for having a light meal. We had a faulty toaster...

We only stayed at The Auckland City Hotel for one night during our stay. However, I can report that it was quite comfortable and adequate for our stay. It was clean and staff were friendly and helpful. It was only a short walk to the CBD and approximately a 25 minute walk to the Harbour.

The hotel itself is small and very basic.Love the food served at the Malaysian Restaurant - Mustard Seed. The service staff - Anoop was excellent - a real ambassador...

Just minutes walking to the sky tower, ferry building, countdown supermarket, town hall, queen st shopping. Great room service and value for money. The only downside is the portable air conditioning. It's very noisy. But it's not a big deal.

Internet gone in 1 hour... you have to pay and expose your credit card to get internet access. Good that there is excellent coffee shop near reception (really nice staff there, good pastries and coffee) because the main restaurant is gloomy and does not offer the usual buffet breakfast.

Stayed at the Auckland City Hotel for three nights. Was lucky enough to get booked into one of their end-of-hall rooms which included a kitchenette. While it wasn't something we had a need for, it allowed for extra space overall. Room size would have been fine without it though. Hotel is just two streets off of Queen Street and a...

The location is very good with shops, restaurants tourist sites all close by. It is not a very high end hotel still very clean and comfortable.
