Kiwi International Hotel offers the best option for cheap hotels in Auckland with quality, value, comfort and friendly service right in the heart of Auckland City.
The most awful dive I've ever stayed in. I wish I had seen the room before I booked and paid because I would never have gone their and wouldn't have lost over$200.
The room was ridiculously small and didn't even have a fridge. The walls are paper thin which meant I had to listen to my neighbour's long boring phone conversation. The shared bathroom has shower doors that one has to fight with to close and then won't even lock. When I made the bed I discovered a long, black hair in it which tends to indicate it wasn't changed.
Yes it's cheap - cheap and nasty! More of a fuss house than a hotel. Their advertising is totally misleading.
If you want a pleasant stay in this lovely city pay a bit more and find a nice place to stay.
I arrived at the hotel at approximately 01:30 and approached the staffed but unfriendly receptionist (a little bit of a smile or just a friendly welcome would have been nice after traveling over 20 hours from the UK...oh well you can't have everything)
On check-in, I was allocated a room on the second floor and showed to the lift/elevator.
My first impression of the hotel was tired and dated, however for the location and time of my arrival, I was just happy to have arrived for my 5th visit to the beautiful city of Auckland - trying to fight jet lag.
When I arrived at my room, I was not expecting anything spectacular - which I was right not too. The room itself was very much the same as the rest of the hotel; small, dated and tired The overall cleanliness was good, the bathroom consisting of a Shower and Toliet along with a washbasin - again it was compact however decent for what I needed it for.
The two single beds in the room where borderline comfortable - another colour of bedding could be used to give the room some sort of vibrancy about it, but BROWN! a small change to this could make the room more appealing.
The view was over a car park, and the window did not close. Something I raised with the front desk, however, I don't think the staff were particularly bothered about my observation.
The hotel itself is about a 15/20 minute walk to the 'Central Queen Street' shopping area along with the harbour, it is down a steep hill, so if you have difficulty in walking, there are lots of buses that pass the hotel which will make your traveling more simple.
For what I needed in a Auckland Hotel for my first stop on a [12 stop world tour] was adequate, however, I would definitely look somewhere else for accommodation
was a shoe box would not stay again especially with kids had to pay $20 to park in parks behind hotel. could of had a microwave and or a toaster. could hear everything in the next room was not cool being woken up in the middle of the nite to walls banging. receptionist could of wore a smile or 2. best thing about the stay was check out time.
Very clean, peaceful, people are friendly. Close to shops, bus stop and take aways restaurant. Can have internet access with hotel password is given once you rent room. Room can be clean services daily, refilling coffee, tea and sugar. Fresh towels, single shower and toilet. The room is good for time to be lonely and get all the rest you need. No smoking in these rooms, but you can leave hotel and smoke near smoking zone. They provide breakfasts and dinners at suitable time that's available and there is special.
Great staff. Great location. Comfy bed. Shower not great.
