From the table on the apartments page, click on the name of the apartment of your choice. This will take you to the apartment page where you can view all of the information for that apartment.

After checking that the apartment's description, photos and availability meet your needs, use the Availability Table and Booking Form near the bottom of the same page to start your booking. We cannot transfer bookings or deposits to other dates or apartments so please choose carefully.


The Online Booking Process has four simple steps:

2. RATES / AVAILBILITY / RESERVATIONS / DEPOSITS

 Are the rates on the internet the best available?

We believe our rates are very competitive, for stays over 8 weeks contact us for special rates.  

You cannot book these apartments anywhere else.  We are not associated with these hotel companies operating at any of our apartment buildings and we exclusively manage all the apartments in our exclusive portfolio.

Can I use the facilities in the building?

Yes your security key will give you access to the facilities such as swimming, gym and whatever else your building has to offer. Note. For instance Metropolis has a  private residents lobby that is very handy. 

What does the rate include?

For your peace of mind and for something else we can be really proud of we have an all inclusive pricing policy which includes a very well equipped, fully furnished apartment but also our great meet and greet service when you arrive, internet access, local calls, weekly servicing and even local sales tax, GST. So all you need to do is stock the fridge and unpack your toothbrush. 

How long would I have to stay to get a further discount?

Over 12 weeks


 Are the availability calendars accurate and up to date?

Yes, when you book online the dates booked will immediately become 'unavailable'

How much deposit do I have to pay?

1 week or the full amount if you are staying less than a week. Please note deposits are non refundable within 30 days of arrival and prior to that subject to a $75 cancellation fee only.

You can start the booking process to see the deposit required and the full amount of your intended stay.

 Are the photographs of the actual apartments?

Yes, we take them ourselves and If we include a photo of the view you will  generally see a bit of the balcony rail in shot thats to show you that we have not played any telephoto tricks. We present our rates, photographs and descriptions in an honest and up front manner. You can click on any photograph or floor plan  to enlarge it, they are under 70kb in file size and as a result some are pixelated when enlarged. Floor plans are not to scale but do give a good idea of layout and furniture..


Can I block some dates and get back to you with a confirmation?

No, we require 1 weeks deposit or the full amount if the stay is less than 7 nights

 How will I get the keys?

We will meet you at the apartment building you are staying in and brief you on your residence.

How can I pay for my stay?

On the day of check in we will charge your credit card for the balance of the stay. If you are staying with us for quite a while we will charge your credit card every 2 weeks.

 What happens if I have to cancel?

Within 30 days of arrival you lose your deposit and outside that it's a $75 cancellation fee. We cannot transfer bookings or deposits to other dates or apartments, please choose carefully.

 What happens if I have to cut short my stay after check in?

After check in we only require 14 nights notice should you need to reduce your stay.


How far in advance can we book?

Online booking is available for the following 6 months.

What if the apartment we want does not have a car park?

You can save quite a bit if you choose an apartment without a car park and all the apartments are within a short walking distance of a parking building. The car parks, where included,  are generally on lower floors and have direct access to the elevator making the movement of people, luggage and groceries that much easier. If you require a car park the nearest is one building away at Victoria Street Car Park:

 How do I know you are not an internet scam?

When I asked our web designers how to convince visitors that we, and more importantly our apartments, actually exist, the advice included putting pictures of ourselves and our office on the web site, pictures of apartment owners, physical address details, telephone numbers and  links to official sites.

We also have major listings at reputable websites such as www.yellowpages.co.nz and Aucklands official web site http://www.aucklandnz.com . We use secure pages for online payments and would not share your information with any third party.

When you are on our secure pages there are several security features including our security certificate and the link to DPS who serve all the major tourism leaders in NZ including Air New Zealand and provide the encryted and secuity payment features. You should also note the 's' following http in the address this also indicates that you are on secure pages.

5. MEET AND GREET / ARRIVAL TIMES

How do we get the keys to the apartment?

Our 'meet and greet'  is one of our most  important services.

On your day of arrival it is our priority to meet you on time at your apartment with a polite, friendly briefing on your apartment.  We like to be at your apartment about 30 minutes before your scheduled arrival time to conduct our final checks including lighting, appliances, telephone line and written information about the apartment, building and local area.  We will meet you in the lobby of Metropolis on Level 3.  Your email confirmation will contain specific details about meeting us and we recommend you print a copy and include it with your travel documents.

All apartments are for quiet residential use only. Charges and penalties ($250 minimum) will be made for security call outs, excess cleaning, investigating complaints.

What if our flight or travel is delayed?

It would not be the great adventure that it is, without delays. Up until your arrival day you can amend your estimated time of arrival at the following page;
http://www.aptsinakld.co.nz/nz-apartments-arrival.php 

Can I check in earlier than 2 pm?

We recommend you book from the previous night if you want access to your apartment before 2pm.  As this is a private apartment unfortunately there is no luggage storage prior to 2pm check in. 

 

How do we calculate our arrival time from the airport?

Allow 2 hours from your flight landing time to any of our apartments unless your flight arrives before 7am or after 7pm or on a Saturday or Sunday allow 90 minutes. Your email confirmation will contain detailed instructions.
