Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This is a rare opportunity to experience The Fire Tower - a tower that was originally built in the early 1900s to keep watch over Auckland city for fires - hence the STUNNING viewpoint. This tower is now a unique and comfortable 5 storey apartment. Best suited to those who enjoy an adventure without sacrificing too many luxuries (and don't mind some stairs!) - the apartment features an observatory lounge with 360 degree view of the city, fully equiped kitchen, marble bathroom and luxury bedding.

The space
From the top storey, the observatory lounge, you will have a fabulous vantage point to enjoy the top sites in Auckland, including the harbour bridge, the sky tower, Karangahape Road, Ponsonby Road & Mt Eden. This is a very tranquil space to relax with a refreshing beverage and take in the sites.

Guests are able to access the apartment at their leisure with self check-in & can feel comfortable around the property as we have the full cooperation of the property owner.

Please do not fear about having to manoeuvre your suitcases down the stairwell, there is an emergency exit in the bedroom which allows you to easily transport your luggage in and out of the apartment.

Please note that there is no parking available with the apartment, but there is street parking on Beresford Square and a nearby parking building, Wilson Parking, Cross Street..

Other things to note
The apartment is a modified tower and hence has had to make do with some smaller spaces, including the bedroom which does not have much more space than the queen-sized bed it contains.
Guests need to be comfortable with heights, smaller spaces & climbing stairs to enjoy this unique accommodation.
Due to the apartment's central location, there is the potential for noise on the weekend. We have soundproofed the windows, installed sound machines and provide premium earplugs to help with this issue but if you are a sensitive sleeper this apt may not be suitable for you during the weekend.
There is currently a new subway system being installed in Auckland, this means that the majority of the central city is under construction. There are road works outside of the tower from 9am to 5pm M - F. During these hours there is intermittent noise disruption.

At Studio 161 we work with the full support of the landlords of each of our apartments to lease unique properties that are focused on design, character and convenience. Our goal is to create comfortable spaces for the modern traveller to stay in for 1 night or 100. To us, this means the reliability of hotels plus the soul and practicality of an Airbnb, like kitchen and laundries. I am passionate about hosting each and every guest, I know each apartment very well and will be available for support during your stay. Now me, I have lived in Auckland for my whole life and am proud to call it, and New Zealand, my home. I especially love working in hospitality and tourism so I can share this beautiful country with so many others. My wife and I recently got married in Mexico! We both love to travel which is why we chose to have a destination wedding and it rocked! Now, we are happily back living in Auckland and feel so grateful to have a fun job working with Airbnbs :) I am happy to offer any recommendations to help make your stay in Auckland awesome!
