Queen Street used to be magnificent, but no longer. Once offering unfettered panoramic views of the wharves, harbour and bay, it has been the victim of overdevelopment, and now offers views of uninspired mid-sized buildings that appear to have not benefited from any kind of...More

In Auckland, chances are that everyone would direct you to Queen Street, no matter what you are looking for. It is pretty much the hub of all shops and malls, with great offers and range of things to buy or just laze around. A walk...More

Queen Street has museums, shopping, and great views of Auckland. The Auckland Museum is a must see and has a large and unique collection of Maori and Pacific Art and Objects..

Wi fi is available in most hotel rooms. You would need to check with individual hotel as to whether there is a charge. Most are free but advisable to check.
