There are only two hotels at Auckland International Airport. The 4 star Novotel Auckland Airport and Ibis Budget Auckland Airport. There is also 5 star hotel under construction that should open in 2022.

A cheap 2 star hotel close to the airport. It’s actually on the airport grounds but much further away than Novotel. Most people wouldn’t want to walk to the terminal with baggage from the hotel.

On the plus side it’s new, clean and well kept, showing 2 star hotels don’t have to be a bad experience.
