Design flair and vibe
This hotel is located down town so street noise was a real issue from my room on the 4th floor
Service was amazing. Tea served on arrival, everything in the room's minibar was free and the room layout was hip and trendy, unlike any hotel I've stayed at in NZ before.
Only very minor negative was the unsightly view of construction works outside our window.
Ambience and chic design
Constructions around the hotel
The hotel which is newish (November 2018) felt very clean and well run. We were generously given a room upgrade as we were celebrating an anniversary. We also had a Spa treatment, Tessa and Amelia were our therapists and did a wonderful job with the treatment we chose. We used the pool and hot spa facility too and were impressed with the cleanliness, it was quite a cool space with a big screen at one end......the bed in our room was deliciously comfortable and the amenities were great too. A seamless and enjoyable experience. We popped up to the rooftop bar in the evening....fantastic staff but.....see below
The rooftop bar, I’m not sure if it was the very high ceilings, the bright lighting or the layout but I didn’t really enjoy the bar. I think less bright lighting along the line of table lamps and floor lighting might help it feel a bit more inviting. We didn’t go up during daylight so it may have a more enjoyable feeling with big high ceilings and enormous windows.
Meals, the whole ambiance was magical. Whole hotel a perfect picture of luxurious comfort and if you love getting stunning instagram shots - this hotel has them everywhere.
SO/ Auckland is the trendiest artistic and musical melting pot in town, if you're looking for a hip and vibrant place to be, to see and be seen. Pose with your friends for Instagram worthy shots of the Waitemata Harbour on HI-SO rooftop bar or wine and dine in Harbour Society where our SO passionate team of Chefs reinterpret French culinary traditions with an unconventional twist.
