Central. There is a kitchen for backpackers (little used as far as we could see), this place is really more a motel. Packed a lot in one small room, incl table, seats, and fridge. Helpful receptionist. Parking.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room we had was tiny but effective. It felt like freshmen year of college tiny. It's great because it's in the heart of Rotorua's shops and food places. Few minutes walk to the lake as well. Has parking, person that checked us in was cheery and helpful. Little laundry room area and they'll even...

The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. They took the initiative to show us our room. Walk up stairs to upper floor. We were offered ground floor at the back, which was quiet at night and comfortable to sleep. The room was neat and clean but a bit small. With two bags lying on the floor, there was barely any...

Wifi is free but limited, but there is an iSite a block away with unlimited free wifi. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again,...

We stayed here for two nights. The place is clean and comfortably close to shops and dining. I could stay here again but would probably choose a more expensive place to have a bit bigger bathroom - this one was very tiny.
