A dump by some brothels
Posted Feb 17, 2017
Was stuck in Auckland overnight due to canceled flights, phoned dozens of other hotels which were all full. Harbour Oaks had a room, but charged me $647/nt and claimed it was 4-Star on the phone. Well its actually mainly a residential tower with some rooms available for nightly rent. Seedy area of town, the dingiest elevators and dark, smelly, less than a meter-wide hallways, almost enough to turn me around without getting to the room. To their credit, once inside the room was OK, clean enough, but no where near 4-Star status - try 2-Star. Main issue was the rip-off price for the quality of accommodation.
