Auckland City Oaks Serviced Apartments Rooms

Guests staying at the Auckland City Oaks Serviced Apartments can choose between one-bedroom apartments with classic and executive options, two-bedroom apartments, and two types of suite, the sweet suite and the sweet suite park and eat. The apartments have queen beds, double-glazing, air conditioning and each guest gets a complimentary continental breakfast. Entertainment in apartments consists of a 32-inch LCD TV set with iPod docking. Executive apartments also include a rollaway bed if needed, though this carries an additional charge, and the bedroom is larger than the classic equivalent, with bedroom and living area separated. The two-bedroom apartment can accommodate up to five guests if a rollaway bed is used, and both bedrooms have queen beds. The sweet suite is a studio accommodation and makes a pleasant, attractive and more spacious alternative to the standard hotel room, containing a full kitchen along with a queen bed and living area in an open plan arrangement. The idea of the park and eat option on sweet suites is that guests can just drive in to the complex, park their car, sleep and wake up to breakfast the following morning. There are room and laundry services for all apartments and there are rooms and facilities for handicapped guests.

would not recommend

Hotel staff very rude. Took at $250 hold on my card said it would be taken off after the room was cleaned. They took this money from my account and will not take any of our calls. Just keep hanging up. Breakfast was a price of bread with jam. Would never stay here ever!

Perfect Gateaway

We booked a studio and were upgraded to a 2-bedroom apartment with full kitchen and a washer/dryer. It was just perfect as we were given free continental breakfast as well as a free WiFi in the apartment. It was less than 10mins' walk to the Sky Tower as well as the Queens Street. Not only that, we had a choice of train or bus link within a few minutes walk from the hotel. Thumbs up!!!!

Oaks

Not a central hotel and parking outside is tough. Really this is a three star masquerading as four and to be honest inside is a little tired and those things like baggage storage etc are more difficult. Really would not stay here again just for the fact its not worth 159 per night. Breakfast is a joke and you need to do better hotel.

very good central location

the hotel is close to just about everything. ideal for the business or tourist. take advantage of the free street parking from 7pm to 8am. breakfast is average, though plenty of food outlets within a short walk. clean rooms, fresh towels everyday and comfortable best for a good night's sleep.

Nice place to stay

I was driving from Matamata and to find this Hotel was quite tricky because there's similar name around the corner but as soon as I found it everything's good from check-in, the rooms even to have dinner. It was raining that night so I could only go to Asian grocery but they've got everything. The hotel is not far from everything you need in Auckland from shopping and sightseeing it's right in the centre of Auckland. I'll definitely stay in this hotel again if I stay longer but don't forget to book the car park.

Good central location

Location is great with easy access to the motorway if you have a car. Room was comfortable and staff friendly. The included breakfast is ok with a piece of cake, banana, juice and yogurt but would not be to everyone's liking. There is street parking but beware of the clearway times and no parking on the broken yellow lines. Overall a good stay and I would recommend.

Cleaning needed !

Great location but the kitchen cupboard was broken, the fridge was dirty and the place needed a vacuum and mopping especially in the shower! The shower was filled with orange and green grime! Yuck! The room Itself was perfect apart from that. I would not recommend to my friends and family and I definitely would not stay again!

auckland city oaks

the Good: Safe, good night's sleep, great kitchen and laundry facilities. the Bad: ' breakfast pack' was 1yogurt, 1granola bar, 1banana, 1 slice of cake, 1box juice. x2people...no problem with the breakfast, just that they frequently forgot to give it to me, and i had to call down to remind them to send. Asked for wake up call, I got it 1/2 hour LATE.

A perfect base to discover Auckland

Just as the title says, this hotel had everything we needed for our 3 nights' stay. Location is great, walking distance to Queen street area and public transport options including the airport express bus. The room was clean, well equipped with kitchen appliances, even a washing machine. Free wifi connection was provided to ensure communication with those we had to leave home:) The suplied continental breakfast is very basic, but there are numerous options nearby including restaurants and supermarkets.
