Amazing location in Ponsonby. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. Very quiet location and our car was safe on the street. Room was pleasant and had everything we needed. Unbelievably quiet, only time we heard any of the guests was when our neighbors had a shower in the morning. Would stay again

Cute hotel with friendly service. Essentially a classic bed and breakfast. Great location with all of the Ponsonby trendy shops on the doorstep and only a short walk to the CBD and k-rd bars/restaurants.
