8/10 Very good

Overall this is a good quality hotel and I would rate it a 8 out of 10. Our room was spacious with the dining/cooking area seperated from the sleeping area. I would have liked a sofa/couch in the dining area as there was a TV and this would allowed us to sit comfortably while watching TV rather than sitting on the bed to watch the bedroom TV, yes there was 2 TVs. The hotel is located 3 minutes walk from the Skycity Casino complex and 10 minutes from Upper Queen Street. The downsides to this facility is it is situated in a highrise residential area and close to the Skycity Conferance Center construction site. Motorway access is at the upper end of Hobson Street a positive if you have a car but parking cost maybe a negative for those with a tighy budget.

관리가 잘된 호텔
2박. 관리가 잘된 호텔. 친절한 직원들. 공항버스와 가깝다. 어메니티 제공이 제한적이다. 나는 모든 것을 가지고 다녀 문제가 없었다. 슬리퍼가 필요하면 비행기에서 제공하는 것 버리지 말고 가지고 오십시오.

The location is great, staff are friendly and place was clean and tidy. Only downfall i would say is the parking situation as there wasnt many parks and was a very small area to park/turn around etc

Hotel was lovely ambience downstairs. Room was clean and tidy, quiet and safe. Unfortunately the room was hot when I arrived thankfully I could open the window for some cool air as air con unit did not work. Then when I returned home after an event room was cold and the heater unit did not work. Also no face cloths available.
