Unlike many hotels in this price bracket, it is actually quiet! I use this place often when in Auckland on business. Basically it used to be an apartment building. Rooms are simple but clean, have all the facilities required. All rooms have a balcony, and while only 10 minutes walk from Queen st is on a quiet side street in an office precinct so little road noise in the evenings. Just a bit of a steep walk up, so might be tricky if you are dragging big bags.
