We enjoyed our stay here so much that we will only take day trips from Auckland from now. We stayed here twice during our trip to New Zealand. Its within short walking distances of practically everything noteworthy in Auckland. The Auckland Museum, Queen street, the Wharf/Viaduct etc. The staff here is cream of the crop. From front desk to bell...

We had a very nice stay from start to finish. The room was nice and big, quiet, and with some views of the harbour. The bar on the ground level is very nice, and staff are very helpful. The coach service is a nice touch.

We only had 2 1/2 days to visit Auckland, so for us it was important that our hotel was in a good location with easy access to for example the harbour. Based on the reviews on TA we chose the Skycity Grand Hotel. The hotel is a 40 minute trip by taxi from the airport with some traffic (around 95...

We stayed 1 night at the end of our NZ holiday. Such an amazing experience.

We spent three nights at the sky city grand with two children (9 year old and 8 month old). As we didn't have a car we wanted a hotel in a great CBD location, with close walking distance to everything we needed. The location was perfect, everything on our doorstep.

We stayed for our mini moon and loved our room. Even in the most basic room it was the best we have stayed in. Comfy couches and beds with a nice quiet atmosphere and everything you need a stroll away. Great views and lovely service! Would love to stay again!
