Scenic Hotel Auckland

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We booked this hotel because of its reasonable price and its excellent location. The hotel’s front door is 5 meters away from the Skybus terminal. We walked into the hotel upon disembarking the bus with our luggage. The room was not too large. The hotel is quite dated. However, there are cooking facilities which is typical of NZ accommodations which will enable you to have breakfast and even dinner prepared in your hotel room once you have done your grocery shopping.

We arrived early and were greeted by really friendly professional staff. We left our luggage prior to check in and it was taken to our room for us while we were out. The studio rooms are wonderfully laid out and well equipped. The room surpassed our expectations for comfort and equipment. We enjoyed a very comfortable and relatively peaceful night’s sleep (bearing in mind this is a main street in the city!). The hotel has been tastefully refurbished on the outside and is apparently still being updated inside. Our room was modern and we could not fault our stay in any way. Staff appeared happy and could not have been more helpful and pleasant. We would certainly stay again. Sky bus stop is 30 metres away.

I enjoyed our stay, the staff was always super friendly and helpful. It is in an ideal location for people using the skybus as the skybus central station is just up the road and other bus transport is easy to catch as there is a stop right across the road. You can also easily walk down to the waterfront in about 20-25 minutes. There is lots of food options and cheap eats just down the block so the location truly is good. The room was great it overlooks queen street and I could see the sky tower which was awesome. The bed was comfy and it had a small kitchenette that was supplied with all the needed utensils and dishes.

Staff are well trained. Friendly. Hotel is under going renovation. The single bed I fall out twice during the night. Bad furniture. Old rooms. Charge as expensive as 5 stars hotel. Will take a lot for me to return.

This hotel is centrally located. Absolutely No complaint. Clean, good facilities, good restaurants available withing walking distance. Terminus of SkyBus, the most convenient airport transfer is located just near this hotel. Hotel staff are welk behaved. I shall prefer to stay in this hotel if I go again to Auckland.

Stayed for 2 nights in February at the start of our tour of New Zealand. Good convenient location on Queen Street. This is a busy street but we didn’t notice any noise as our room was at the side. We had a superior studio apartment which had a separate bedroom and small kitchen area. It was great after a long flight to be able to get a take away and relax. Everything was very clean.Didn’t use the restaurant so can’t comment on it. Two things stopped the hotel from being 5 star - the bed was very soft and the furnishings were looking tired.

Overall a pleasant stay, staff are very helpful and friendly. Room good space and comfortable. Nice to have a small kitchen unit with microwave, sink and cutlery. Slightly overly priced but this may be as hotel stays appear more expensive in Auckland.

I stayed here for a few nights at the start and end of a tour of New Zealand (staying for 4 nights in total) and cannot praise the hotel or the staff enough - you guys were fantastic! During my second stay (at the end of the tour) I was celebrating my birthday and the hotel staff really went out of their way to make this special for me - including a free dessert in the hotel restaurant that evening and a birthday card waiting for me in the room. The staff really did seem to care about your stay and making it as enjoyable as possible for you. The rooms were a lovely size, always nice and quiet (so a good nights sleep was had), clean and everything for a few nights stay was provided (including a small kitchen area). The location at the top of Queen's Street might be slightly on the outskirts of Auckland, but it's only a 5min walk into the city - on the plus side staying on the outskirts does make for a nice quiet area. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again, or to recommend to family/friends. Thank you Scenic!

The staff in this hotel are all incredibly helpful and well informed, nothing seemed too much trouble for them. We ate in the restaurant and the trainee waitress was brilliant, especially her recommendation of the Pavlova which was superb! The room itself, on the 5th floor was comfortable, well apointed and clean, although a little small My only complaint would be the single glazed windows, which let in rather too much noise.

Very nice hotel with a great location, convenient to public transportation (across street), airport shuttle stop next door, could walk to harbor in 10-15 minutes. Very helpful staff. Great breakfast. Room clean and comfortable. Good value. Great gelato next door!
