Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Superb quality room with self-catering facilities that would command up to a 50% higher nightly rate were it not in a poor position at the top of Hobson Street adjacent to major road junctions. A good option for those seeking comfortable short-term budget accommodation who aren't afraid of walking to the city attractions.
Communal areas of the apartment block a bit scruffy detracting from the well above average room facilities.

Lovely helpful staff and clean, cosy room. Wifi good and modern security door system. TV had sky channels and others. Kitchen compact but functional. Bigger kitchen upstairs with good views over the city.
Some irritating things like no mirror in main room, only the bathroom that got misted up after a shower. Also the shower was badly designed so there was always a pool of water on the floor after.

Our plan to Auckland was to go with a budget (but clean at least) accommodation and spend more on eating out.
This place came up based on a daily budget, reviews were reasonably okay so decided to give it a try.
Location is okay as it's closest to everything in the city.
Room was extremely disappointing, managed to get a free upgrade to a better room but the twin room we were originally given smells terrible, way too small.

Daily housekeeping was one of the points we went with this place but they made up the bed but didn't even change the sheets/linen and didn't vacumm at all for the 5 night stay.

This is just a next level of hostel, shouldn't be even called a hotel.
I wouldn't recommend to any unless you are desparatedly under the budget.

We had to pay a deposit which took a week to be refunded instead of the 24 hours promised. Although we asked for a non smoking room the room smelled like smoke and the carpet had a burn mark. The room was small. Food smells in the hallway. Internet not working

Worst place I have stayed! The rooms smell like someone has been chain smoking in them for days when the clearly say "non smoking rooms" on their site.

They are currently housing emergency housing people who are intimidating rough and confrontational. Especially when at night where they hung out in the lobby on substances. As three women we did not feel safe. We kept hearing loud bangs and noises through the night.

There was dirt and rubbish in the worn lobby, elevator and staircase. We even saw dried blood smeared in the elevator.

The rooms were run down and the sheets didn't really feel "clean" .

We could not chat to anyone in the morning as no one was there to check out. Once calling later in the day to chat to a staff member to ensure I was properly checked out, I received a email saying that I have a cancellation as a no show so I couldn't leave a review the manger is rude and said I was threatening after emailing to make a compliant which they asked me to do.

Would not recommend!!

This is an excellent place to stay in the city. It's not one of the more popular hotels. Probably because it's small and not a corporate chain, but if you want a less expensive (not cheap) place to stay in the CBD, stay here. You will not be disappointed!

Check in was a little unusual as they escort you to your room and show you how to swipe your key to get through the halls and on the elevator. But when I got to the room, I was very impressed. Everything was perfect. It was clean, nice, and modern. It looks brand new. Kitchen with kitchenware and microwave. Big window with a street view. And nice bathroom with some toiletries and plenty of lighting. Location's great as it's in the CBD. Staff is nice and provides excellent service.

I had my doubts when I booked this apartment for few days. However, upon arrival, I was welcomed warmly by the gentleman at the counter and the check-in was fast and easy. I have seen some comments about the deposit which didn't really bother me as it was normal for many places. They charged a refundable deposit of 150 dollars on my credit card and it was returned within a couple of business days.

Room was very clean had a TV with a handful of channels, FREE WI-FI, microwave, fridge, and air-conditioning. Room was cleaned daily by the staff and amenities were refilled. The bathroom was really clean once again and the linen was changed daily. There are a common dining area and a kitchen at the level four which you can use.

This place is a 7-minute walk from the SkyCity convention center which makes it a perfect stay for conferences. There are a couple of Asian supermarkets around the place and a really nice cafe couple of doors down.

Room can be slightly noisy as it was located next to a busy road but it didn't really bother me.

Sited at the top of Hobson Street this is a great location for the city centre, K Road and Ponsonby Street. The facilities are first class and clean. Staff are welcoming, thoughtful and helpful.
The kitchen on the fourth floor is great and has a wonderful place to sit and view the city.
High speed reliable internet is provided free of charge.

Comfortable, basic and clean, convenient location near to cbd, but wi-fi was nigh impossible to get and the tv could get no signal. Good for one night perhaps but no longer. ‘Goodview’ is a misnomer; the view is concrete and glass.
