Downtown Hotels in Auckland

It is a clever traveller who bases himself in the downtown area as it will be easier to use public transport if you want to go further afield, and also there are lots of things to do within walking distance. For orientation's sake, think of Queen Street as the main artery of the city. Karangahape Road (K' Road) is at the top, then you have mid-town which would include the Sky Tower area, and then the Britomart and waterfront areas at the bottom. In a city as centrally situated as Auckland, most of this would be considered downtown. So, you can rest assured that you will not have to walk very far wherever you choose. You can't go wrong. Well, OK, you may have to climb that hill once or twice but you can always get the bus. Auckland prides itself on having a variety of accommodation options. Try a swanky waterfront hotel such as the Hilton, or go for something that is nice if only slightly less swanky such as the Rendezvous. Or, you can go budget and hit the backpackers (our local word for hostels). Don't forget, they are not just for the early 20s set, although you may want to weigh up checking into a "party" backpackers such as Base with your need for sleep.
