One Of The Best Place To Stay On CBD Auckland”

For me this is one of the best place to stay in cbd auckland , if you want to drive a car or just walk around to explore the cbd auckland . Because there are a lot of options for park your car near the hotel and it’s cheap park , also the hotel will give you a recommendation for parking place near the hotel.

Immaculate well provisioned studio apartments”

Friendliness of staff, ample provision of cups, plates etc, comfy bed, very clean, very good wifi

i have no complaints or negative things to say about auckland city oaks - it was a really good stay. i have stayed in several places like this in auckland but oaks is the best so far. other places offer free internet but the service is so poor and slow it's hardly worth having (such as the quadrant). indeed auckland city oaks was very good in all their provisions. i liked the breakfast - delivered each evening - although the juice was more sugar than fruit. more shelves and hooks in the bathroom would be a great idea - especially for 2 people sharing. our bedroom windows didn't close too fully and so it was a bit noisy from the road - but this is very common in auckland hotels and serviced apartments. double glazing doesn't seem to have reached nz yet. all the staff i encountered were really helpful and pleasant. a major problem for people travelling by public transport is location - the airport bus goes no where near hobson street and it cost $10 by taxi for the very short trip from the ferry building. i should have checked out the shuttle service.
