Hotel De Brett
Supremely hip, this lavishly refurbished historic hotel has been zooshed up with stripy carpets and clever designer touches in every nook of the extremely comfortable rooms. Prices include breakfast, free broadband and a pre-dinner drink.
Onetangi Beach Apartments
Three different blocks of townhouses are clumped together, all offering modern, perfectly located, well-managed accommodation, along with a spa and sauna. Best (and priciest) are the Strand Apartments, with large decks overlooking the sea.
Skycity Grand Hotel Auckland
When you're on a winning formula you may as well stick to it, which is clearly what the mandarins at the Sky City were thinking when they recently opened an even flasher version of their franchise. Hence the name, Sky City Grand...
Right by the river, this local institution has a mixed bag of rooms – some newer and nicer than others. The refurbished bar is downright swanky, dishing up fancy pub grub including burgers, pastas and pizzas (mains $15 to $30).
Auckland City Hotel Hobson St
The heritage frontage opens onto a modern block with smart, spacious apartments at very reasonable prices.
Abaco On Jervois
A neutral-toned motel, with a contemporary fit-out, including slick stainless-steel kitchenettes (with dish drawers and proper ovens) and fluffy white towels for use in the spa. The darker rooms downstairs are priced accordingly.
The Quadrant Hotel & Suites
Slick, central and full of all the whiz-bang gadgets, this apartment-style complex is an excellent option. The only catch is that the units are tiny and the bathrooms beyond small.
Perched at the tip of Princes Wharf, this stylish luxury hotel is almost out to sea. And indeed, it's only fitting that in the 'City of Sails' its swankiest big-name hotel should resemble not so much a skyscraper as a large ocean-going liner...
The Esplanade Hotel
This beautiful boutique hotel takes pride of place on the corner in a 1903 heritage building. It features lovingly tended period details such as supremely high ceilings, and has much more style than many of the luxury hotels in the city centre...
Scenic Hotel Auckland
This landmark tiled art deco building in Queen St has been cleverly converted and features plenty of old-fashioned style combined with modern panache, meaning that during the week it's popular with business travellers and during the weekend it's taken...
The Langham Auckland
The glamour of the giant chandelier in reception dissipates somewhat once you reach the low-ceilinged guest floors. Still, the Langham's service is typically faultless, the beds are heavenly, and its day spa is reputedly the best in Auckland.
Dukes Midway Lodge
Duke’s brings a touch of Las Vegas to suburban Auckland’s Vagus Pl, thanks to its rather eye-catching swimming pool which takes the shape of a guitar. In every other respect, Duke’s is a well-priced run-of-the-mill motor lodge...
Quest Carlaw Park Serviced Apartments
It's in an odd spot but this set of smart, modern apartments is handy for Parnell, the city and the Domain, and if you've got a car you're practically on the motorway.
City Life Auckland
A worthy tower-block hotel offering numerous apartments over dozens of floors, ranging from studios to three-bedroom suites. Facilities include a heated lap pool, gym, valet parking and a babysitting service.
Auckland Rose Park Hotel
Opposite the Parnell Rose Gardens, this large hotel has generic rooms clustered in landscaped ‘Tudor’ or ‘Colonial’ blocks (although they look the same to us), together with a restaurant, pool, spa and plenty of parking. It’s popular with tour groups.
Off Broadway Motel
The Off Broadway is a dandy little performer in Auckland’s accommodation scene and deserves a few stage-door Johnnies singing its praises...
Quality Hotel Parnell
A mixed bag of more than 100 motel rooms and units are available in this large, well-maintained complex with friendly multilingual staff. The newer north wing has some fantastic harbour views.
Ibis Styles Auckland
You’ll feel like a giant in the minirooms with teensy TVs, stereos, ironing boards and kitchenettes, but they’re clean and stocked with everything you need. The building itself is spectacularly skinny.
Jucy Hotel Auckland
The Jucy car rental company has taken over this long-standing hostel, repainted everything in their trademark lurid green and purple, and converted it into a zippy budget hotel...
Auckland Northshore Motels & Holiday Park
An indoor pool, spa and 24-hour check-in are all available at this oddly located holiday park and motel complex near the motorway, 4km north of the Harbour Bridge. Despite the position it’s surprisingly peaceful.
The Sebel Suites Auckland
If you want pole position overlooking Auckland's rejuvenated Viaduct Harbour, then look no further than the Sebel Suites, 133 high-finish, super stylish apartments with smooth service and lots of top-end details...
Jet Park Airport Hotel & Conference Centre
Friendly Jet Park has comfortable rooms, a decent vibe (unusual for an airport hotel), and a pool straight out of Hawaii 5-0. Departure screens in the lobby and free airport shuttles mean there's no excuse for missing your flight.
