With fantastic views over Waitemata Harbour, SO/Auckland is located right in the heart of downtown Auckland minutes from the city’s high-end shops, restaurants, and bars. It was designed in collaboration with fashion house WORLD and boasts lavish interiors, a rooftop bar, and an exquisite spa.
Its 130 rooms and suites are designed thematically, in a nod to Auckland’s volcanic history, with bold open-plan spaces and views to Rangitoto Island and the Coromandel Peninsula. Interiors are contemporary and tasteful with floor-to-ceiling windows accentuating marvelous views.

New Zealand’s SO/Auckland is one of the newer hotels in Auckland with a more hip and funky feel than most. The rooms are contemporary and tasteful with floor-to-ceiling windows, and the interactive welcome gift was one of the best we’ve ever received. We highly recommend opting for a room with harbor views.
