Central Location with great view of the Sky Tower

The view out our window of the Sky Tower was great - we had the perfect view of the fireworks celebrating Chinese New Year that were set off from the top of the Sky Tower - culminated a great trip to New Zealand!

Good downtown Auckland hotel

The two bedroom suite is ideal for business travelers who need to be in downtown Auckland. Everything worked except the clothes dryer. Housekeeping dried clother for me. One note: the Auckland CBD can be noisy at night, even in 20th floor rooms, especially after All Blacks games. If you want a quite place, get a hotel away from all the nightlife.

Excellent Choice!

Excellent hotel! Extremely clean and well maintained. Valet parking was great - no worry about the car. We upgraded to a one bedroom suite for $1 and the suite resembled an apartment - kitchen, living room, and very roomy bedroom. After being on the road for 3 weeks, the inroom, full size washer and dryer was such a welcome sight! Very helpful and friendly staff. Walking distance to great restaurants at the waterfront and lots of shopping options. A true gem! Wish we had stayed longer!

Great location with helpful staff

Even though there were some communications problems with my third-party booking of this hotel, the staff made sure everything was right. The check-in counter staff and the bell captain crew were helpful, cheerful, and just a pleasure at all times. We had breakfast nearly every day of our stay there. While the breakfast buffet wasn't huge, it was always fresh and tasty. They had a version of Eggs Benedict (menu item rather than buffet) done with salmon instead of Canadian bacon that was wonderful! Again, the staff in the dining room was always helpful and pleasant. Not cheap, but worth the price. Lots of real smiles and friendly service. The towel/heater bar in the bathroom was a nice touch. Great for drying out your hand-washables. I would have preferred a firmer mattress though, especially one with independent coils so as not to disturb my husband when I toss a bit at night. Not bad, just not the best possible. We would gladly stay at CityLife again!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Sky Bus (Air Bus?) from the airport lets you off right in front of the hotel. It cost less than NZ$30 for a round trip, and runs every half hour. That's a big savings over a taxi!
