Good location and price!

We were in town for the weekend and this hotel worked perfectly. Nice accommodations and right next to Sky Tower. Very easy to get to via the airport shuttle bus and city buslines that bring you to the fun nearby neighborhoods like Ponsonby. Also got the rate for the full breakfast and was better than you would expect from a hotel buffet. Would recommend!

Great stay!

I was in Auckland for a short vacation by myself on the way home from Sydney. I was looking for a slightly upscale hotel that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. I was very pleased with the Rydges. It was close to a lot of the features of downtown Auckland that I was looking for the SkyTower, the harbour, and more. The staff from what I've experienced was great. I didn't have many complaints so I didn't have many interactions with them. I used the restaurant in the hotel once during my stay and it was alright, but fairly empty. The room was clean and comfy, albeit a little small, but no complaints overall. A great hotel that I would definitely recommend.

Stay in Auckland

The hotel was conveniently located in downtown Auckland and a short walk to the Skytower and to the Ferry. It was very clean, extremely comfortable and the staff was very accomodating to every request we had. We were traveling on tours and they held our bags when we were over night on a tour. They also held them for us on our final day of departure as our flight was in the evening and we wanted to take the ferry during the day. They gladly complied.

Business stay

Good location, short walk to pier and also city center. Got a good price for the hotel room with free breakfast. Breakfast selection was good, though perhaps could be varied on a daily basis. The actual food was good though, no complaints. Room was clean and quiet. Bed was comfortable. Free wifi, which is always a winner! Staff were efficient and polite, but perhaps could have been friendlier. They didn't seem very chatty.

Rydges was an excellent location. Spacious room and good condition. Staff was very helpful. Coffee and tea supplies plus a refrigerator were a big convenience. No ice machine available -- had to get from room service. Didn't use the restaurant because seemed a little pricey.
