WAY outside of Auckland

The hotel was much farther from Auckland than they made it seem. The building was really small... from the lobby to the rooms and bathroom. The bedding/beds were old and our room had no A/C. It wasn't the worst place I've ever been but I couldn't wait to leave! It kinda gave me the creeps. At least the safe was nice and it was clean.

[...]As far as the hotel, no way is this this a 5 star. A bathroom light was broken and Maintenenace arrived in an hour to fix it. It could not be fixed then and he said it would have to be fixed during the day as the electricity would need to be shut off. I checked-out 3 days later and nothing was ever done. Although the shower stall was small (the floor was flooded after every shower) it had the best water pressure of any hotel I have stayed in. I requested an early check-in via email prior to arrival. Room was not ready but a room with a harbor view was at $30 more per night. Only because I had just goten off of a 12 hour flight and elected to pay the extra.So overall, ok hotel[...]

New Zealand Honeymoon

SkyCity Grand was a very nice hotel. You can't beat the location or the staff. It is pretty much walking distance from anything you would want to do. It is located in the heart of Auckland so there is something for everybody. The hotel itself has many different restaurants and lounges but it is much more expensive then venturing off the property. Not only will you find better places to eat you will save a few dollars as well. Overall I would recommend SkyCity compared to the other hotels we saw in the city.

Eat and drink off site. Many places less then a 5min walk have specials going on different nights of the week.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

The Hotel was absolutely wonderful for location, the room was lovely and very comfortable. Plus, across the street was the Casino that you could walk to on a 'cross-over' that was covered in case it was raining. The restaurant in the Hotel WAS TOPS. Staying here actually made everything better because we could walk everywhere OR if we needed to catch the bus, it was only a few steps to catch one. Plus the water was only a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Nice experience

The SkyCity Grand is one of the better hotels in Auckland. Auckland itself is not as modern/contemporary as some other Pacific cities such as Sydney, so don't expect to find a Four Seasons type property in Auckland. All in all, we all found the SkyCity Grand to be very welcoming and in an ideal location.

Newbee in NZ

Spent our first three nights in Auckland and booked the Sky City Grand for its location and free wi-fi. It was perfect - centrally located. A short walk to the Wharf, Art Gallery, Britomart. And a comfortable stroll to Parnell. We then headed to Queenstown. After our time in Queenstown, we decided to book our last two nights in Auckland with the Sky City Grand due to our initial good experience. Their sauna is great and it was perfect to relax our trip with. We also enjoyed our dinners at the hotel's The Grill. Both very affordable

Excellent hotel, definitely worth the look!

Great staff and even better location. Very comfortable rooms and great views, not to mention the Sky Tower right outside. Don't miss brunch here, one of our favorite meals in New Zealand!
