After enduring the return leg in coach from Tahiti to New Zealand (see Air New Zealand to Tahiti: In Coach to Paradise), I arrived in Auckland exhausted. I thought I made the convenient choice booking the ibis at Auckland airport. Unable to find the hotel shuttle, I hijacked a luggage cart and pushed it through high winds and a tremendous fog until I arrived at the hotel.

I was not the only one with this ingenious idea.

Hotel Itself

The hotel looks like a kindergarten classroom.a room with tables and chairs a desks with stools and a phone booth a couple of people sitting at a reception desk a room with a table and chairsRoom

The daycare theme continued with the design of the room. It was comfortable and cozy. I, of course, slept like a baby.

I half expected a bubble bath.

I asked the front desk where we could eat at this late hour. They suggested a burger place.

I would recommend the ibis Auckland if you are arriving late and your travel plans take you out of the city the next day.
