Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Awesome location! Close to transport, buses and ferry etc. Its not 5 star but its perfectly fine clean and pretty well cared for. Usual dings and marks on walls. But for the price and location you cant beat it! Nice staff too.we had a great sunny room, could see sky tower and a bit of the water so really happy. Would stay again

Review:   Was upgraded to the 2 bedroom unit on arrival. A little worn in places but tidy and serviceable. Good sized kitchen/lounge area, and excellent shower pressure. Easy walking distance to Queen Street and Britomart, as well at the Skybus (airport) stops.

Review:   I am happy with the rooms and kitchen. The overall place is a little tired and dated, however this place is priced accordingly. The location is great. Close to good coffee shops and restaurants. Convenient for getting around. The rooms were clean, however there was a blood stain on the entry way trim that should have been cleaned. Would recommend not bringing a car here if possible.

Review:   Decent place, and cheap for the area and the quality of apartments. The gym is lacking and the machines weren't working at all when I stayed.

Review:   Excellent view. I stayed on the 37th floor and had a sea facing room so the view was indeed nice. All amenities are available in the room. Everything is available in close vicinity to the hotel. Alcohol grocery shops etc are right next to the hotel. Plenty of food options as well
