New Zealand - North Island Day 1 - Part 2 (To Stay) Singapore to Auckland, NZ

To stay:

Hotel Ibis Style Auckland
20 Wyndham Street, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
Ibis style auckland
Toilet of the hotel
We took the morning flight from Singapore to New Zealand and it was nightfall when we arrived at New Zealand, Auckland as 4 hours ahead of Singapore time. To save cost, we decide to walk from the airport to the nearest accomodation. While it states that its 5 minutes walk from the airport.  It doesn't seem as short a distance when we have our luggage in tow.

Check-in and out was pretty smooth and easy. The beds in the room are very clean, neat and comfortable though a little lightweight. The beds move even with a little bump.

Beware that the hotel only provides a bar of soap in the toilet. No other toiletries are available. So be sure to pack whatever you need yourself. There is a grocery place COUNTDOWN just right next to the hotel should you need anything urgently.

The room itself is very small, packed and tight. There is barely enough room to put 2 luggages (1 cabin size 1 regular size.) I left my regular size luggage at the doorway as that's the only place to fit it. The walls of the room itself also has very poor sound proofing due to the thin walls.  Being a light sleeper i can hear people walking along the hallway deep in the night.  :(

Overall, i think this budget accommodation is adequate and served its purposes. Its proximity to the airport and car rental is an added bonus. Pricing is also easy on the pocket. I will definitely stay at this place if i am require to choose an place to stay all over again.
