I stayed at this hotel in January 2016 for holidays. The hotel's location was within walking distance to all the attractions in CBD. However, like other reviewers mentioned, the facilities were outdated and need substantial upgrade. Stale smelling in the lobby area, but the room was clean. With similar price I'd choose other modern hotels nearby.

Hotel was quite dated. Rooms were clean, but stale smelling. We had two bedrooms, surrounding a kitchenette, both very, very old. Not modern at all. At most Best Westerns, you get breakfast with your room. Not so here - and breakfast is not cheap. However, the hotel is within walking distance of EVERYTHING but the airport (45 minutes out, and...

It doesn't get much more convenient than this property. We booked late and got a 3 bedroom apartment, way more room than we needed, but it was nice. You can walk anywhere in Auckland CBD froth is hotel! There is a 24hr convenient store right outside.

Well presented as a clean and reasonably sized room with division into separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette space. Staff were accommodating and polite but didn't go out of their way to be helpful. Limited channels on the tv, however, good location, close to Sky tower and a 10 minute or so walk down to the Harbour. Parking was $25 a...

To call this a hotel would be a disservice to the word Hotel. I've stayed in backpacker hostels more luxurious than this. It looks more like a halfway house. The beds look like army seconds. The sheets may have been linen, but they were so starched it felt like sleeping under sandpaper. One of the towels in the bathroom had...

Dear Ian S Thank you for your feedback. However several of your comments are incorrect. We are a 3 star plus hotel, and not a five star luxury hotel. All our room doors and fire doors are all fire rated as otherwise we would not be able to operate legally in New Zealand. As we are an older property we...

Stayed at Best Western President Hotel on 02-04 Jan. First time in NZ... Didn't know what to expect. Well... Firstly, complimentary parking is a given in Oz (especially if it's a 4-star hotel); apparently not at Best Western President, Auckland! We've had to pay $25(NZD) per night for the privilege of parking our vehicle at this inconspicuous, very tight parking...

If you want a perfect location in downtown Auckland and you will be spending a lot of time outside the hotel, this could be your hotel. The hotel sits right next to the Sky Tower, with great access to restaurants, shopping and grocery. We had the 2 bedroom and it was spacious enough for 4. Our AC did not work...

A little disappointed with our accommodation location. The bed in the main room filled the room and you had to inch past the corner of the bed to get to the other side or roll over the bed. There was no shelving in the wardrobe to pack clothes. Our room faced a busy street where there was a bungy rocket...
