Our first day in Auckland was awesome. We arrived from LA at about 6am and immediately hit the town. After walking around for a while and having a breakfast beer during the rain, we headed over to the aquarium to see stingrays, sharks and some awesome penguins. We then had lunch at the top of the sky tower in a revolving restaurant with …
We finally arrive in Auckland at stupid o'clock in the morning. Pick up the car eventually!! It takes ages for the man to arrive with it. DO NOT use Scotties car rental. We were told they would meet us off the flight, nobody there, so we ring them, oh yes we are told he is just 2 minutes away go and wait in the lobby of the hotel outside. So we …
After Kym spent an enjoyable flight sitting next to a bloke wearing his undies, our new year was welcomed in by a kiwi customs officer offering very staid congratulations with no champagne in sight! After clearing customs by about 12:30am on 1st Jan we paid 80 Kiwi Paesos for the cab ride into town only to find the New Year festivities were over …

Historical Traveler Reviews SKYCITY Grand Hotel Auckland
Nicely situated in the centre of Auckland. The room l stayed in was clean & spacious. The staff were very helpful & polite. A good place to be for an evening drink & live entertainment. The Sky Tower was well worth a visit. The Buffet food restaurant was slightly disappointing though.
As one of the lucky people to be the first to stay in Skycity Grand Hotel I was expecting world class service and opulence and was not disappointed.
We had a room at the Sky City hotel on Jan 29 for one night only,prepaid in Australia,before joining a cruiseship.On arrival we were asked for a credit card which I handed over and thought nothing about it.The next day we handed in our keys and advised them that we did not use anything from the bar and we left.Since then we have been debited $36 N.Z twice,once 31 jan.second march4 and as we haven`t used any nor gave permission for them to debit us we`d like to know what is going on.Can`t reach them by phone,our travelagent has sent three faxes and no answer so what else can we do?Thank you Gerda van der Voort
Cant say enough about it. Excellent staff, food, entertainment and value for money.
A great place to gamble too!!
Good value for price
We stood 3 times at the hotel during Nov. and Dec. 2004. Rooms are quite spacious and clean. At one stay we had booked a suite for for a great rate of 299 NZD breakfast for 2 included and had a really large accomodation. Staff was friendly and did everythings to make the stay enjoyable.
However, the main restaurant is a rather uncharming room. Nevertheless, why have dinner at the main restaurant when you can have it at the top of the sky tower with a breathtaking view of Auckland. Meal are not very expensive but are on the other hand not outstanding.
At all, we liked our stays at the hotel and will choose it again.
Didn't much care for it. Felt like a warehouse for people. But it was functional and clean if lacking in any charm.
A slight hint of Seediness
Sky City complex itself taints the hotel that is built into it. It is a casino hotel so although there is lots of activity going on there is also a lot of people losing money who really look like they cant afford to ... The rooms were not bright and bluish and seemed dark, with dim lighting too. I didnt like the executive suite we stayed in. I lived in Auckland for a while and would prefer some of the other city centre hotels. However Sky City is very central and if you are looking for a late night party atmosphere this is probably about the only hotel in Auckland you will find it at!
Bright inviting colors!
We stayed in an executive suite for US$96/nite and we felt that was a great price for what we received. The room was decorated in bright blues with some other colorful highlights that made the room enjoyable. The bathroom was blue tile and a big solid glass shower door. I thought the 2 buttons on the toilet were kind of neat. (1/2 flush and a full flush). The maid kept the shampoo, soap and bath gel replenished everyday. The only drawback was there was some heavy soap scum or buildup on the shower floor.
They also offer a business center with 2 internet ready PC's, phones and a laser printer (free of charge)
Other than that I would have no problem staying there again in an executive suite.
My Hubby and I have been going to the sky city hotel for six years and every year it gets better! We stay in the Luxuary suite which is beautiful I love that they do such awesome packages that include your breakfast, dinner, tickets to the top of the sky tower plus much much more.. The service is quick and very reliable.. the staff are all great!!
Tiny rooms, a bit cell-like
The rooms were ridiculously small and there was nothing charming about it... also, more expensive than other hotels in its league.
