first stop for new zealand trip


Airline had lost our luggage but the desk clerk here went out of their way to ensure we had anything we needed to settle in and even kept contact with airlines in searching for our luggage. Provided late checkout with no problem while we waited for our luggage (which never came)...we continued on our vacation without it. The superior customer service here turned what could have been a miserable situation on our first stop in New Zealand into as pleasant as possible. Way to Go!

great place


Great experience at Skycity hotel in Auckland. The staff was nice and the room was clean and quiet. Great deal if you can get some discount for the prices, otherwise a bit expensive.

terrific city hotel


The location was great in the center of Auckland. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops. The hotel lobby was excellent with many on site dining options. Some construction going on, but easy to ignore. The room itself was lovely and modern. It had a nice setup with 2 queens, plenty of room for 4 people. Bathroom was outstanding with excellent shampoo provided. Would stay again.

good holiday.


It is a good hotel.staff were very courteous and helpful as we arrived early in the morning. They kept our luggage in storage as we went out sightseeing. The location is very central close to the Barbour front airport express bus stop.

little outdated for the rooms


The lobby and restaurants looks nice. The hotel rooms are outdated though. Temperature controls in the room were weird. Low, medium and high were the setting with fan controls of low,medium, high and off. The bathroom tiles were yellow and looked worn out. Nice that there was a bathtub though since most hotels don't offer that ammenity. To say this is a 4 star hotel would be stretching it. Would say more of a 3 star. For the cost though for what I paid it was fair.
