i thought that the rate that i paid for a single room w/o bathroom was good, especially for a good location in a big city. i stayed before and after a group tour of new zealand.
the room was small but the bed was very comfortable. there was a tiny desk and chair and a sink and a mitrror but no closet and no place to put the suitcase except on the floor. so the room was only good for sleeping. i had a second floor room in the rear away from trafffic noise so it was quiet. no fan or air so i had to open the window to cool down the room.
the bar and restaurant are not cheap- go elsewhere.
airport bus stops right in front, so take it. it comes every 15 minutes or so and costs $26 return, much cheaper than a taxi.
good area on the main street- lots of shops and restaurants.
staff were helpful- let me make a free international call when my credit card wouldn't work in the pay phone. and they have luggage lock-up.
would definitely stay here again.
