"““A great location in central Auckland.”” - We have always stayed in suburban auckland in the belief that it would be quieter and better value for money. Having stayed in Bianco off queen both these beliefs were proven wrong. In future we will stay in Bianco off queen. Room was spacious and clean with nice amenities that feels like a home away from home. Location was excellent - we could go everywhere else on the train and buses. Central station is about a 10min way. The counter staff were always cheerful and a pleasure to speak to. An excellent find! Room Tip: Would be better in a higher floor where there might be better views...."

"“Location” - Location: Great. Two minute walk (if that) to Queen Street (Main street of the city). Not a big hill to get up. Had no issues with the reception staff, or any staff for that matter. Had issues with our washing machine and dryer - they were up in the room to fix within 10 min, no problems. The room (Superior Lvl 10) was nice. We were in a corner room, but still had a fairly large room. Small shower in our room though, but was not a real issue. Be aware, they will take $250 (NZD) security bond, as do most hotels - via credit card. When you check out they ask you to wait so they can check the room. This way they are refunding your $250 slightly quicker - but you still have to wait the 2-3 business days to get back in the account. Breakfast (if you get it included) will probably be a muffin, piece of fruit, muesli bar (and in the fridge), yoghurt and juice box which is in the room. It satisfied us, we don't usually eat a massive breakfast. The rooms are serviced daily, we think roughly 11am - 1pm is when they come around (we were always out). Overall, great hotel. Location was great and you don't get the loud noises of the city as the hotel is facing away from the main street. Room Tip: Go Superior room :) They are slightly higher up...."

"We chose this place based on price and we were not disappointed.

This hotel is a few minutes walk from the heart of the city: galleries, nightclubs, theatres, cinemas,......"

"+ Great value for money, well appointed and very handy to central city. Free wifi was reliable and a great bonus. Car parking, though extra cost, was spacious and secure. - Our apartment (on floor 5) looked onto a corrugated wall, but views weren't advertised so not a problem. No curtains on the side windows so lights on that side of building, which were on all night, were a little disturbing. No worries but just wanted to mention it...."

Once you check-in, they don't disturb you. Free wifi is an important feature to have these days. The property is within walking distance to the Airport express bus stop along Queen Street and you can also walk to the Quay near Britomart, therefore very convenient location...."

Service instructions regarding air conditioner in room excellent. Rooms were amazing with 3 lots of sliding doors onto balconies [from lounge and from bedrooms]. Bathroom large and airy. On 13th floor so all day sun with views all around tops of other buildings etc. Would recommend highly for groups / families...."

"My daughter and I stayed three nights in early October. I selected superior one bedroom apartment and we were on the 14th floor, the top level. First impressions were of a very clean, well appointed room. No noise to speak of, helped I am sure by being high in the building and away from the street. The reception staff were very helpfull, and the underground carpark reasonable at $20 per night. Location great and handy to the city. I found the bianco to be very good value at a good price and would definitely stay again...."

"I was nervous to book into Bianco off Queen because at the price advertised, it seemed too good to be true - but it exceeded my expectations. We were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment which is always a good way to start. The staff were courteous and helpful, the suite immaculate with all the mod cons (including a washing machine and dryer) and the wifi came free of charge. There's an additional cost for parking but we managed to find metered parking right outside the hotel. It's very quiet for an inner city property and we had a great night's sleep. All in all, a good experience and exceptional value. I would definitely stay there again. As an aside: I fully support the management in trying to control 18th birthday party sleep overs (see review by katherine t, "RUDE RUDE RUDE") and taking an imprint of a credit card in case of damage is common practice in all hotels that I have stayed at...."
