Auckland City Hotel - Hobson Street, Auckland
Stay at Auckland City Hotel
The room that I paid on my own on floor 7 was very nice, called corporate floor. Then when I checked in under our tour group the next day I was moved to floor 3 which by far was not very nice at all. It had no desk lamps, carpet was dirty, no shelf in bathroom and smaller sleeping pillows. I even asked if I could pay extra to get a nicer room. Totally disappointed in the rooms that were assigned our group. I am a concierge and I love recommending places to stay, restaurants to dine at, tours to book for my guests, however this hotel is definitely marked off my list!!

Stay somewhere else
The floor we stayed on smelled like fish, The beds were on wheels and moved around the room when you moved in them. The hotel charged me double what I was quoted.
