Auckland's old Magistrate's Courthouse was transformed into an elegant lobby with a stunning onyx ceiling for these serviced apartment accommodations. Most rooms have decent views, but the best sea views are higher up on the east side of the hotel. On a clear day you can see across the harbor to the Coromandel Peninsula. The stylish apartments are either one- or two-bedroom with sliding doors separating the living area; most have balconies, and all come with a kitchen,
including dishwasher, and washing machine and dryer. There is no room service or in-house dining, but there are plenty of convenience stores close by and the online website offers very good deals.
