where to stay

by junaone

Traveling to Auckland to meet up with a cruise in March. Looking for a hotel (2 night stay) or BB close to
terminal. Also, how is the taxi service from the airport? Thanks!

Try the Accor hotel in town. It is not far from the docks.

150.00 NZD.

The cab fair is about 45.00 NZD but there is also a bus service, look at this site and read the first paragraph

Where is your cruise going to ?

Re: where to stay

by Kakapo2

I would wait with booking accommodation and book it on www.wotif.com

In March there is always vacancy in the CBD, and you get good deals.

If you do not want to wait you might want to stay at the Duxton, the Grand Chancellor (make sure you book the one in the city centre), SkyCity, the Copthorne (Quay Street), Hilton, or Quest (on Queen St). If you have the nerves to wait you can get it a lot cheaper than if you book now.

There are also a lot of apartments available in the area, this would be a good alternative.

I suggest you check out some CBD hotels on Wotif to see what is available. Then you can still book them now. If you check them out directly on the hotel website they are always cheaper than the full rate listed on Wotif.

Good and cheaper hotels and motels not far away from the CBD would be in the lovely suburb of Parnell.

"HOW" is the taxi service? It is good and reliable but the fare will almost certainly exceed the suggested NZ$ 45. You rather have to expect $ 50 to 65.

A good option for door-to-door service are the shuttles like www.supershuttle.co.nz They are the biggest company but there are others. The trip would cost you between $ 20 and 26. For groups it costs less.

The Airbus would cost you $ 15 for a single trip to the CBD.

So, if you are more than two people and want door-to-door service you can go for a taxi.

I have listed all transportation options from the airport on my Auckland page.

You just need to open your eyes and ears and listen to Kakapo! she helped me once; that's one of the reasons i fancy the site.
don't panic !!...don't panic... 'wait till you get there staff will be easy to cover with 1 hand'; my old man used to say so.

Travel Tips for Auckland

The Superette

by keeweechic

The superette was also a name given to a type of ‘dairy’ store and maybe sold a little more in the grocery lines. Despite name changes like ‘the Deli’ to some, you will still see plenty of superettes around. Although business may not be as good as it used to be with the longer opening of the bigger supermarkets, these little stores are always convenient for the one small item you may run out of, or just simply to park outside and run into.

A day at the zoo in Auckland.

by worldkiwi

Auckland Zoo may not be particularly vast on a world scale, nor does it have the diverse range of animals of some world zoos, but it is one of my favourite ways to spend a day. The gardens are really pleasant to wander around and the enclosures are continually being upgraded to standards on a par with the world's best zoos.
In February 2003, I saw the new sealion enclosure for the first time. Wow. You can watch the seals from underwater and the experience is amazing. Classical music plays, the sealions glide past upside down with their eyes shut, looking like they're in a state of bliss and the whole thing is strangely quite soothing. On the day I visited, I didn't know who was having a better time - the sealions or us! I was transfixed and oddly detached. I had to tear myself away from watching them. If you need de-stressing, I can recommend this particular part of the zoo!
The 'Pridelands' area is modelled on allowing the visitors to see the animals in more natural surroundings. The hippo enclosure is particularly good. Take your lunch and picnic in the zoo. It is a really nice day out. Make sure you visit the Kiwi House, where you can see NZ's national icon (the rare Kiwi bird).
To get to the zoo, take the Northwestern Motorway from the city and exit at Western Springs. Turn left onto Great North Road and turn right at Motions Road which leads you to the zoo carpark.
Entry is NZ$16 per adult (as at January 2006). See my travelogue for more pictures from a visit to the zoo in Jan 2006.

Theatre, Nightclubs and Casinos

by keeweechic

You will find a variety of night-clubs, cabarets, pubs, concerts and live performances to choose from, and there are also two casinos, which are open 24 hours a day.
.
AUCKLAND Casino : Sky City Casino is open 24 hrs, 7 days a week and has over 1,000 gaming machines. You need to be 20 yrs of age to enter the casino areas. Unique Qualities: Within Sky City there is another smaller Casino (Alto) as wellas many bars and restaurants which makes an excellent venue having everything all in one place.

Indian food

by Regens about Cheema

Located on a quiet street running parallel to busy Queen Street, this restaurant provides tasty North Indian cuisine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Open 7 days 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for lunch, and 5:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for dinner.

Parnell Café

by kiwi about Mink Café

Nice sunny outdoor dining area as well as indoor dining. Spacious and nice ambience.
Great place to dine if you are planning to do some shopping in Parnell. I had brunch and chose French Toast, with Banana and Bacon. This is really a favourite of mine and widely available. Mink presented a fine example of this dish, and I feel I eat it often enough to make that judgement. I'd dine here again any time!
