Hotels in Auckland


Blessed with two shimmering harbours, a nearby National Park and protected islands, New Zealand’s sparkling capital of Auckland blends contemporary urban living with its natural surrounds effortlessly. It is the country’s largest city, and its most cosmopolitan. Visiting Auckland will give you a taste of modern New Zealand and the ability to delve deep into its past by visiting the museums and galleries that look back to its indigenous roots and its colonial takeover.

Knowing where to set up shop in this city will make your time in Auckland that much better, though there isn’t really a bad area to stay in this well organised (and pretty) metropolis.

Where should you stay in Auckland?


For convenience, the CBD can’t be beat. All the major attractions are well within walking distance and those that aren’t have excellent links from this part of the city. It is a little bit more edgy than the other parts of Auckland, but in some ways that adds to its appeal. You can access water tours to the islands in the Hauraki Gulf direct from Quay Street, and you’ll find a decent range of accommodation that caters to most budgets.


Frequently referred to as the ‘bohemian’ neighbourhood of Auckland, Ponsonby lives up to expectation. There is a relaxed and fun vibe to the area, but more than that, it is packed to the rafters with restaurants, bars and cafes, which make it a hotspot for travellers and locals alike. Added to this, is the array of nightclubs—gay and straight—that run throughout Ponsonby, and you’ll learn that most night owls, revellers and young people search this neighbourhood out for its nightlife.


Devonport and neighbouring Takapuna are areas that surround the Harbour Bridge. If you want charm, this is the place to stay. You can find quaint B&Bs, and accommodation that will give you that real village feel that you won’t get anywhere else in the city. Ferries service the area and will take you directly into the CBD, so you can still be connected to the hustle and bustle of central Auckland.

Mt Eden

There’s no place in the city that offers a better view than the ones atop Mount Eden. The pretty, plush suburbs of Mount Eden are made up of villages that move from mansions to gorgeous hotels, and it has the added advantage of an excellent range of shops and restaurants.


If you like shopping there is nowhere better in the city to stay than Newmarket. There are shops that run the gamut: from individual specialist boutiques, luxury designer brands and high street retailers, there are certainly enough places here to put your credit card to the test. There’s easy transport to most of the other neighbourhoods, and it has good restaurant and nightlife scene. Expect a decent range of hotels, from moderate options to the deluxe ones.

Transportation in Auckland

The transportation in Auckland is pretty good. Mostly made up of buses, with some tram and ferry services, you can get most places in this city via public transport. Many people opt for a car to be able to explore the attractions just outside the city, and there are lots of car hire options available at the Auckland International Airport (AKL), or you can hire a vehicle in advance using our car hire search tool.
