We boarded our flight 17 February 2012 at 11.30pm and landed at Auckland airport at 3.30am 19 February 2012...after a 13 hour flight.
We flew with LAN airlines, it was OK, seats were a bit small, but we were fed and watered and it was a very smooth flight.
We killed a bit of time in the airport - changing bits of cash, having …

Shane had a hankering for fish and chips so we had a bite to eat at the market - seasonal F&C washed down with a local boutique beer and skewered prawns marinated in lime & chilli... Very yum.

... car park and in the end went in the first one we passed at the beginning.
Our first stop was the Sky Tower, we didn't go up it but just got some nice photos from the outside and popped in the building for a coffee and chocolate cake. After we just carried on walking down some streets not having a clue where we were going but we ended up on the main shopping street. Turns out Auckland is not that big really. We walked end to end on the main street and had a ...
Yesterday we visited the city center and the wharf in Auckland. We were feeling a bit worn out so no heroics were involved but we had a nice time wandering.
Every once in a while we would suddenly end up feeling like we were in Tokyo. There were shops selling the kinds of Asian food stuffs that invite curiosity for western eaters. But the bins full of food items in inexplicable shapes and colors labeled 'dried BBQ Squid' ...
How has this condo rated in the past?
We booked directly with Metro Suites as we'd read that some apartments are let by other agents.
We arrived at 8am, so had breakfast at Esquire cafe - which was great. Check in wasn't until 2pm, but they arranged for our room to be cleaned sooner and we were in by 11.30am.
The apartment has a 2 ring electric hob with oven, kettle, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, fridge and freezer. Enough plates, cups, pans etc.
Huge bathroom with bath and walk in shower.
Lounge area with sofa, chair, large TV, desk and chair. Sliding doors to bedroom area with lots of cupboard space, another TV and huge bed. Floor to ceiling windows with amazing views over the harbour. Nice thick curtains that block out all the light.
The staff are really helpful and friendly - they can't do enough for you.
You have free access to the gym and pool - both of which were quiet and very clean.
You need to request cleaning...but we didn't need it as we stayed 4 nights and there is only 2 of us. Plus we are happy to clean up after ourselves.
Amazing - totally recommend Metro Suites Apartments,
