Mercure auckland review

This hotel has many problems with it. first they put 2 adults in a room meant for one person and lied telling me that it was the correct room. After I insisted they then moved me to a room with the door lock not completely on. Because they were very slow, I corrected it with a plastic knife. The air from the smoking section of the hotel circulates to the non smoking rooms so you wake up with that nice tickle in your throat. i would not stay here again.

Great location, a bit dated

We needed a hotel for one night while in transit, arrived late and left early. Room sufficed, although I was disappointed that there was no conditioner, only conditioning shampoo. The rooms are ok but dated and a bit dingy. Great location for the price if you are staying in town as it's in the heart of things. Would not recommend late night room service. Friendly but food was awful.

Friendly staff. Hotel room was decent. The location was perfect. Close to the ferry and close to Queen street where all the food places and action is. Great location.

Great location and room; aloof staff

Mercure was a great home base for exploring Auckland and beyond (though on a second trip we might stay a little farther outside of downtown as it's quite touristy). The hotel was generally fine: clean, central location, lovely view and good housekeeping. However, there wasn't a concierge (that we ever saw) and the desk staff seemed aloof and perhaps a bit slow. All fine if you know your way about or are there for business, but if you like to ask staff little things like the best place nearby to grab a drink or breakfast -- or expect any level of welcome when you walk in the lobby -- you may find the Mercure lacking.

Good Value for the Location

Great location next to the water for the ferries and access to Queen St. The hotel came to around $60 for the night, but the valet parking at $30NZ was the only griping point - too expensive, but we didnt have time to research better. Overall good.

Ideal location at good price

Hotel gave us a much appreciated early check-in with our Obitz booking and a room with a wonderful view. Perfect location for ferry and bus transit. Major dining areas within short walk. Hotel staff very helpful. Hotel in process of upgrading facilities. Only drawback--no in-room safe.
