Guest reviews for VR Auckland City

4 out of 5

Much nicer than I expected

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, great shopping area
Cons: there's a homeless shelter a block away
The Auckland City Oaks was much, much better than I had expected given the price and my first impression upon arrival. It could use an exterior renovation, as it looks pretty shabby from the outside. Once in the room we found it very clean, roomy, with a nice kitchen and all-in-one washer/dryer. Since we didn't bring a laptop, we used the computer in the lobby to access the Internet. We also discovered that we were only a few blocks away from a bustling shopping area, college campus, and nightlife. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would definitely stay again.
