Great choice for a first-time visit”

Located in city center with 1km walking to the train station where link to the airport. A good choice since firstly arrives in Auckland because of its location. A live supermarket named Countdown at 300 meters far, where we can buy material to cook ourselves. Public kitchen has tables and ovens for cooking, dishes, knives, and forks for eating. Not new furnitured, but convinient. More to discover...
