As Australian travellers we had previously had a disastrous experience
at our booked accommodation in Auckland so were looking for something at
shortish notice when we returned to Auckland for one night before
We were very happy with our 2 bedroom apartment - the only
issue we had was trying to dry clothes after using the washing machine.
The staff were great - gave good advice about sourcing a meal and kindly
booked our transport to the airport next day. They evened offered a
late checkout when they discovered out flight did not leave until mid
The beds were really comfortable and shower pressure was
great. Our apartment was on the 6th floor and very clean and tidy. The
kitchen appeared to have reasonable supplies although we noticed there
did not appear to be a frypan. The "open window" bit was easy to solve
once we found the electric control on the wall by the window and closed
Very easy walk to a couple of coffee shops and a bakery for
breakfast and/or lunch. Close to other restaurants for evening meals
although the walk to Victoria st is via quite a steep hill - don't plan
to wear stilettos!
Would happily stay here again. We stayed mid week and
did not notice any street noise.
