Rydges Auckland

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location. Close to harbor and sky tower. Room clean and spacious. Room was held even though we were delayed a day and had no way to contact them.

We needed a hotel for our last evening in Auckland after staying with friends at their condo in Hobsonville. We chose the Rydges as that was the only local hotel who had a room. The city was having it's yearly Lantern Festival, so we were very happy that they could accomodate us. The room was just perfect and we were very pleased with everything!

The staff was extremely helpful with Taxi service and money exchange. The restaurant was nice. The location was convenient to the city attractions such as the wharf and sky tower.

Great value deal, friendly helpful staff, lovely clean rooms with a surprise upgrade which made the weekend. Even when I left something behind it was found immediately and left at the front desk for me to pick up no fuss or 'disappearances' as I have had in the past from other hotels. Exceeded my expectations.

We were very pleased with this hotel, its location and the service. The location was very convenient especially if you are going to take tours as they pick you up outside. Easy walking distance to all downtown spots. We would book her again without hesitation.

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!

The hotel was wonderful.The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very nice and the hotel location was perfect. Cannot think of anything negative. Don't hesitate to book a stay here.

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.

We had a very short time in Auckland. Our stay at the Rydges was comfortable. Clean hotel, friendly staff.

Prime location, but general cleanliness, especially the bathroom was poor.

Great location. Staff very helpful. Room could use refurbishing, particularly the carpet. Bed pretty comfortable which is important. Good value for the price.

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.

Its work very well for me. The staff is professional and cheerful, the service excellent.

Walking distance to pier, buses, sky tower and restaurants. Beds were very comfy and clean. Staff was wonderful. Be sure to book with ahead. We stayed an extra day and had to pay full price which was almost double the O.....price

My stay at the hotel was great. The room was a great value for the money. I had a large bed, desk, and a small sofa, in addition to a good sized bathroom. The hotel was free wireless which seems to be rare in Auckland. The only downside was that you would have to log again after four hours, but it was not that big of a deal. The hotel is walking distance from the wharf area and Queen Street. The Sky Tower is up the street. I would stay there again if I visited Auckland again.

This hotel is located within a block of the Sky Tower and is in the middle of downtown Auckland. It has recently been updated to a contemporary look. It has a soothing color palette. The bed was very comfortable. We used room service for dinner and it was both prompt and delicious for a reasonable price. The staff took good care of us.

Just a few blocks from the Airport Express bus which you get right outside the terminal, this hotel had all I needed for my stay as a single woman. Comfortable, clean and I felt very safe and well taken care off in every aspect. I got a late checkout and they took care of my bags until I was ready to leave by the airport bus, right on Queen Street. Couldn't have been better!

We stayed here twice during our time in New Zealand. We enjoyed the hotel both times. It's in a great location - right near the Sky Tower.

very modern hotel with hip furniture. It is very central and give you access to everything in the city to almost walking distance. I was at 11th floor with a very opened view and view on City Tower. The staff was very effective and courteous. I really recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rydges and were pleasantly surprised to discover it was only in the next block from the Sky Tower (we wanted to visit it, too). The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was phenomenal.
