Whenever you stay for a short period of time in any big city, location becomes the key factor when choosing the right hotel. The good news is that Auckland is reasonably compact and the all the hotels we’ve selected serve as ideal sight-seeing bases. That’s not just to get to the main sights, but also to find cafés, bars and restaurants which are an oh-so-important part of the Auckland experience.

Standards of accommodation are high in Auckland – very much like New Zealand in general – and if you are looking for outstanding service, unadulterated luxury, quality cuisine and stylish interiors then we can be confident of ticking all boxes. Even when we look at more affordable options, these standards remain impressively high.
