« Terrible! »

For a 'budget' hotel, this room was overpriced at $194! Room was small, grungy looking, window didn't shut properly, lock on door to balcony was broken. No crockery - just a note saying if you want crockery you had to go down to reception to get it! No bedside table. And the wardrobe!!! I am tall, and still couldn't reach the coathanger rail! The whole hotel had a weird smell too! On the plus side, the bed was comfortable (if a little small).

Great central hotel, a good place to stay for the price close to everything, the room was nice and clean a bit on the small size but this is normal for a budget hotel. we could walk to most things with it central location. Still waiting on my points to show??

« Excellent venue for short stay »

I have been pleasantly surprised by Ibis Budget in Wynyard Street! The guys at Reception give you the best welcome, I want to mention particularly Rahul and Andrean, they both have outstanding attitude to the customer, the go way beyond what we expect of any personnel at a Hotel Reception. Please Management, compliment them. The room is good, a bit old and spartan, but has everything that a tired traveller needs, no complaint at all. There is a stove and a shower and your bed is made every day. Location is excellent, in the middle of the city, the Skybus from the airport stops just round the corner. If you come by car, you can park it at Wilsons Parking directly opposite the hotel for $30/24 hours, an excellent deal. Well done Ibis, well done team! I will come back. Thank you! Mariana Amar

« Budget Hotel - You get what you pay for »

Pros: The hotel is in a good location. In the middle of the CBD and within easy walking distance to all the major tourist attractions. The front desk are friendly. The hotel is not expensive compared to other hotels in the area. Cons: There is a large construction project right across the street and the workers begin, and are noisy, very early in the morning. It looks like that construction project will run until at least February 2020. The shower pressure is very weak. I was on the 7th floor and had trouble getting a decent shower in the morning. The water comes out in dribs and drabs. It takes a while for the hot water to run in the shower. One morning I had to let the shower run for a full 10 minutes and it was still cold. If you wake up in the middle of the night and turn on the bathroom light, you will see bugs scurry for cover on the floor. I'm not sure if they were roaches but, either way, if you keep your luggage on the floor - keep it closed at night to avoid taking home stowaways. Don't bother buying the boxed breakfast. You can get better food for less cost at any number of restaurants that are within easy walking distance. There is also a supermarket less than 3-4 minutes from the hotel. I had two single beds in my room. There are no chairs in the room, you have to sit on the beds. There is no closet in the room. Just 4 hooks on the wall for you to hang up your clothes. So now you know … buyer beware

« Clean, convenient central location »

Stayed 3 nights. Convenient to public transport options in the city centre (trains, buses, ferries). Clean and comfortable. I had 2 nights good sleep, but on Friday night I could hear the nightclubs through to the early hours of Saturday. The room is compact, small but adequate and functional, as one expects for an Ibis Budget. The one thing I missed was a small desk to put the laptop on -- the bedside lamp stand was not quite suitable for using a laptop. I stopped using the hotel WiFi after both MS Update and the AV complained that their downloads failed verification (one possible cause is if the WiFi were compromised). The room has a fridge, a microwave, and a small range top. The coat-hanger rail was in a high cupboard; one might need to stand on the provided stool to use it.

« family time »

Value for money stay at the Ibis. Location is excellent. It was noisy in the weekend as ii is adjacent to night club. Requiring 200 min character is a joke. Waste of time. I suggest that this requirement is taken off in the future,.

« Noise constantly. »

We were hoping for a place that was just a bed for the night which this place was but we hardly slept because of constant noise from construction work during the day that started from early in the morning to noisy clubbers and pumping music at night going till 4am. Windows are single glazed so the noise come through like they are open. We were looking forward to Sunday night as no club might have meant sleep but no the construction worker went through the night. Location was good for the city and the rooms were basic, small but clean. Heater in room did not work.

« Great budget inner ciry hotel. »

IBIS is great budget hotel. 2 minute walk to Queen St and centre of city, and to airport bus. Rooms are small but well designed. Staff are very helpful. Bit of noise on Friday nights from nearby partygoers, but they supply earplugs! Good cheap continental breakfast, coffee shop next door, good bargain all you can eat breakfast I minute up the road. Good value for money, and you get what they advertise.

« Catching up with friends »

When on a budget and want to be close to the action this is a perfect hotel. Minutes walk from the casino. Clean comfortable rooms and bed. Friendly staff. No bar or restaurant but plenty of places to go and eat with in walking distance

« Our stay at the Ibis Auckland Central »

This hotel was comfortable, although the room was very small, and very well located in respect of the Civic Theatre and the Ferry Terminal, both of which we had planned to visit. As it was a short stay, we had no problem with such a small room. The breakfast we paid for was a continental pack and there was no restaurant. We thought the price of $15.00 for the breakfast pack was high for what it was. I was very disappointed that there were no Accor points available for out two day stay.

« Not the best »

This property badly needs a makeover. It is shame because it is in such a good location. But has been left to disrepair. The curtains are dirty, the countertop / bedside drawer needs a good wipe. The floor needs to be replaced. It is a ‘budget’ hotel so you do get what you pay for. Although I did pay NZ$400 for a two-night stay due to a last-minute booking.

« Good location but small, noisy, warm rooms »

I stayed for three nights in Jan 2019, booking very last minute due to other plans falling through. The bed was comfortable, the shower was good but beyond that I struggled to find any other positives. The hotel declined to honour a special offer on the website at the time of booking, which wasn't a good start. The room was very small, very noisy and very warm. Loud music from neighbouring bars played until very late into the night. There was no air conditioning, only a small wall-mounted fan. Opening the windows only made the music louder! The location was great, right in the heart of the CBD, but for value for money, service and overall, I wouldn't rate this hotel. I also had an unexpected room mate - a cockroach! I think there are far better alternatives around which give much better value for money.

« Compact but central »

Clean, well kept and very compact, the room we stayed in had a double bed, tiny kitchenette and bathroom with shower - everything necessary and expected from Ibis but be advised, our room was tiny. On the plus side, a pre-packaged, very ample breakfast was included with tea or coffee and the hotel is only a short downhill walk to the cruise terminal.

« Disapointing »

The room was not very clean, there was a terrible smell of poor cleaness and old room, next to the hotel there are 2 night clubs which make sleeping impossible (even if you are on the 11th floor as we were), facilities are old. The ONLY good thing is location, but there are better alternatives around. I would NEVER recommend this hotel.

« Worst hotel ever! »

This hotel has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. I booked the high floor double studio room and my stay was a disaster. The room was very small, although the advertisement made it sound spacious. The tv did not work at all and was so old. All my food I refridgerated went to waste as the fridge wasnt working. No aircon and the reception lady explained to me that it is due to guests being cold at night time which was totally irrelevant to me, but she gave me a fan, which didnt really help. The only good things about this hotel is, its not on the main road and New World is nearby. Would not visit this hotel again or recommend it to anyone else, ever!

Dear NorthStar00254004752 Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations.Our rooms are compact in size at 12sqm. We do advertise as hotel not having air conditioning. We do have digital TV signal and at times this can be distorted due to changes in the atmosphere. We have recently upgraded our digital amplifier which will resolve this type of issue. We do apologise for any inconvenience these issues may have caused. We thank you again for taking the time to review. Kind regards Kesh

« Shoebox in Auckland »

The worst Ibis hotel I’ve stayed in. Room was incredibly small without air conditioner. Due to the wet weather, everything smelled bad and damp. You have climb up about 150mm from the level of the floor into the bathroom. There was no shower gel or soap in my room, and reception just gave me a tiny cake of soap. Breakfast is a prepacked box with some fruit juice, milk, small scahet of cereal, melba toast and marmalade. There is only weak tasteless coffee available and no dedicated breakfast area. You sit in the reception area. The location however is very central.

« Location, location, location and a little bit quirky »

I am developing a soft spot for this quirky little ibis hotel in the heart of the Auckland CBD. Location, location, location is its essence. Added to this, its pricing is reasonable though not cheap despite the Budget branding. There is still some old signage in the hotel that indicates that it was initially branded as an Ibis Styles property and it retains that quirkiness unlike most characterless ibis budget properties.
