We stayed at Auckland City oaks for the weekend. It is centrally located and very close to cafes and restaurants. 5 mins walk to sky tower and 20 mins walk to the waterfront. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had balcony and beautiful view. The apartment is well equipped and perfect for a couple. The complimentary breakfast is...

Although rooms are spacious they are very dark & dull with both poor natural & artificial light. The lighting in the bathroom was particular bad. Poor quality cleaning with left over fries littering the floor near the lounge. Odd breakfast options provided in the fridge each day. Don't expect to much from a stay here.

This is the only property we booked via Booking.com that will charge you 100%+2% surcharge at the time of booking even you booked the room 5 months before your stay. They will charge you before they send out the confirmation letter as well as the credit card authorization form. What's the point of sending the credit card authorization form if...

Stayed here in a two bed apartment with friends in first week November. The check-in was prompt (thanks Priyanka), the reserved parking for our rental car was welcome.
