Auckland and the Rydges Harbourview Hotel

I recently had a stay in the Rydges Harborview in Auckland. It was my first time in this city and the location works really well. It's very central and located opposite the Sky City Auckland complex. The rooms have fresh modern look and have all that you could want including a large LCD television. The bed was really comfortable and I got a great night's sleep.

The hotel is very highly rated on tripadvisor and you will find some good deals on wotif.com and lastminute.com.au. There is a paid for broadband cable service available but there was also a wifi network throughout the hotel which was free when I logged on.

The handy access to the casino complex means there is plenty of nearby restaurants and entertainment options and it's just a short stroll down to the harbour front. Overall I was quite impressed with the hotel for the price and would stay there again. It's a 5 minute walk to the airport bus as well.
