A little bit too expensive for what offers.

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2024
Abaco is at reasonable distance from Auckland downtown, restaurants and supermarket. There was a problem with the wifi, but the manager fixed it promptly. We had a unit at the groundfloor and it was not so sunny: the two bedrooms (but we used only one) receive light only indirectly.Probably the unit at middle and uppere levels dont have this problem, but this is our experience.
All in all I think that is not completely worthwhile and that it is a little bit too expensive for what offers.

Hi there

Thank you for your review and we are sorry to hear that you thought we were a reasonable distance from restaurants and supermarkets. We are, in fact, a very short walk of 250 metres from Ponsonby Road, which is well known for it's many great restaurants and bars. We are located on Jervois Road, Ponsonby, and we are also very close to the Herne Bay restaurants and bars (350 metres away), of which there is many to choose from. The nearest supermarket to us is 800 metres away, again, a short and pleasant walk or NZD$8.80 in an Uber but the Inner Link and Outer Link bus service is also on this route. We have a lovely, cafe, across the road, 150 metres away and a very well known Steak House directly across the road.
Auckland Downtown is 1.8km from us and again you can hop on the City Inner Link or Outer Link buses or it is, also, the minimum NZD$8.80 Uber ride away. Many of our guests do, however, enjoy the walk.

Thank you for staying, we appreciate your business and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels in our beautiful country.

This place is well located in an inner suburb of Auckland. Good restaurants and stores are within walking distance. We had to change our reservation at the last minute due to flight disruptions and the hotel was very accommodating. The room was quiet , clean and comfortable with good beds , shower and air conditioning. The hosts were very pleasant .
I would stay again...

We would never stay there again. The place was dirty, no one in the office most of the time, rooms not serviced even though we were there for 3 nights, we had to ask for fresh towels. lighting terrible hard to see in the kitchenette. the bed was average. Car parking was terrible and very confusing with how you get in and out of the place by car. Arrows showing way out, but you couldn't get out that way, had to go out the way you came in.

Stayed here about 8 years ago on a trip to Auckland so thought we’d try again as it was a nice stay. This time we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which had a small lounge area, table and chairs and a kitchenette. Once again a pleasant enough stay but there have been little improvements so it is getting a little aged. The beds especially were too soft and definitely need replacing. It was however a nice enough stay. Quiet room and a very friendly and helpful gentleman who was at front desk. He was even kind enough to try to find us a nice recommendation for dinner and allowed us to use his computer and printer to do our online check in for the airport.

This is very comfortable, clean, and modern accommodation for such a great price. It is very central and handy to restaurants, supermarket and, Ponsonby shops. Our family enjoyed staying in such a quiet location but very convenient. It's very hard to find a motel so close to the city centre especially for the price. We strongly recommend Abaco and our family intend on returning fir another visit.

Centrally located apartment with all basic amenities like burner, appliances and cutlery. At a walking distance from major attractions nearby and from quick bites. The lady at the reception is very helpful and courteous.
