Avoid room 1.8 if you want some privacy.

We chose this hotel for its location and reviews and didn't mind spending a little bit more for this. We chose a deluxe suite. Breakfast is included in the room rate. The room we were shown to was room 1.8. It was on the same level as the bar and the windows of the room looked out into the atrium - which meant the there were people sat DIRECTLY outside of our windows enjoying a drink. The first thing I did was close the curtains for some privacy! I made it clear that I didn't like this at all. The girl came back to our room and offered to move us up a level to room 2.8. Again the windows looked out into the atrium but this time no people sat outside of our windows and we could leave the shades open. The room was lovely & the bathroom was amazing. We were so glad they moved us as the previous room would have ruined our stay. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The continental breakfast offered In the inclusive price was a total disappointment. The Bircher muesli was so sour/sharp and the other cereal on offer was like cardboard. I had some fresh fruit and there were some average pastries/muffins on offer but we both ended up ordering from the menu at an extra cost. There are tea/coffee making facilities in the room - but no milk available...

Great night away

Fantastic location, very friendly and helpful staff and beautiful boutique hotel. Free Wifi and continental breakfast. The breakfast that was included was great for a freebie (and they even cater for gluten free travellers). They also make great REAL coffee (all included in the price). I'd highly recommend this hotel.

Stylish central hotel

Small and stylishly decorated hotel, close to the waterfront with bars and restaurants. Staff were very helpful, and free WIFI and breakfast an excellent touch.

Fab weekend in Auckland

We stayed at the De Bretts Hotel recently. What a hidden treasure. The staff were amazing from the moment we walked in the door. Rooms are beautifully presented & so spacious. Very very clean. Only issue we had was that our room was extremely noisy until around 1.00am as the bar patrons where partying in the courtyard just below our room. Surely double glazing could be a very good option. Otherwise an awesome place. Thanks heaps.

Wonderful escape!

Great hotel with lovely, friendly staff. The breakfast was excellent with a good selection and lunch was also very enjoyable. The room was a little snug but more than adequate for a short stay. Located in a very central position in the CBD. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect couple retreat

I brought my husband here as a surprise for his birthday. It was perfect. Rooms fabulous- luxurious, funky and so comfortable. The bath was a delight. Location was perfect, right in the centre of town. Lots of restaurants and pubs to choose from. Walking distance to lots of attractions. Thanks a million.

Treat yourself

Having been disappointed by hotels in Auckland, Hotel De Brett was a welcome change. Its location is perfect, staff couldn't be more helpful. Is got a personality of its own. The rooms are comfy and homely and most importantly the bathroom is luxurious and clean..... I won't be staying anywhere else in Auckland. Surrounded by quirky and interesting shops Hotel De Brett is a winner.

Hotel de Brett very good value and fantastic location

Hotel is located at lower end of High St (a prime shopping area of boutiques and the independent and excellent Unity Bookshop). Nice mix of European style with touches of 60's (and earlier) furniture. Very comfortable, with designer bathroom. Friendly and courteous staff. And only one block away from Airport Link bus stop on Queen St. Good cafes and restaurants nearby. Excellent choice for those who want a place which is not a hotel chain, and has a sense of style, design, and individuality.
