Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rydges in Auckland was great! Arrival: There was a bit of a wait when we arrived in order to check-in as we arrived at the exact same time as two groups of flight attendants. The front desk was very apologetic over the wait time. Room: The room is spacious and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were moderately sized and...

Arriving wet and tired after a 12 hours coach travel from Wellington, the reception staff were very kind and helpful by letting me a quick check in so I could rush to my room and have a cosy bath. The "problem" was that In Wellington I also stayed in Rydges so comparing these 2 hotels was Inevitable. Also here the...

It had been a few years since visiting Rydges in Auckland as I don't travel to NZ for work anymore. The staff were great, even with the mayhem of several aircrew trying to checkin at the same time as me. An upgrade from the standard room as well as a welcome back note from the GM was a welcome surprise....

Rydges is delightful and very well located. It's one block from Sky Tower, a few blocks from the waterfront and lots of restaurants and a few blocks from Queen street shopping area Room is spacious enough for 2 with suitcases, but only one suitcase stand. There's a small glass top desk, a coffee table, a small couch and king bed,...

We stayed at Rydges on the same night Justin Bieber was in town.......we felt that we didn't get value for money. The room was clean enough. The bathroom looks as if it were recently renovated, but maybe done on the cheap - half of the original tiles remained and didn't flow to the new tiles. The room was quite hot...

Thank you Di M for taking the time to share your experience. I am not sure if you were in town for the concert but I am sure you can appreciate the amazing amount of Beliebers there were in town itself. I heard the concert started slow but finished on a high. Thank you for your comments around the staff...

Great place to stay near sky tower and inner city but without the noise. Rooms were quite spacious, beds comfortable and bathrooms roomy and clean. Hairdryer, iron and ironing board provided which was handy for travellers. Valet staff were super helpful and polite.

A good hotel with helpful staff located in a prime position in Auckland. It's just a short stroll to the sky tower and queen street etc ... with plenty of bars and restaurants close by. This is an ideal hotel for a couple of nights stay which we enjoyed. I cannot comment on the food as we didn't indulge while...

Having previously stayed at this hotel a few years ago bacause of its location within the Auckland CBD, we returned to enjoy its hospitality again. Pleasant staff greeted us, upon entering the foyer and assisted with our luggage. The lifts have security which is a plus. Our room on the 13th floor was more than we expected, with a comfortble...

We had to overnite in Auckland for an early flight home. We were able to check in earlier than 2 p.m. which is always a bonus for travellers. The location was very close to the harbour and major streets with easy walking distance. Large comfortable room and we enjoyed the kettle to make tea before bed. . We had a...
