The Proximity Apartments offer a more home-like experience than staying in your average hotel. If you are staying in Auckland for a while and don't need to be right in the CBD (central business district) then a serviced apartment could be a good option. There is internet access, secure parking, and the location is right in Manukau City close to the Westfield Shopping Centre (mall), Rainbow's End, and the Botanic Gardens. The rooms have kitchenttes, washer/ dryers and ironing boards and irons. Soem rooms also have sofas beds. Cots/ cribs can be ordered and children under 12 stay at no additional charge. Keep an eye out for three night specials, especially in the off season.
