The cen­trally lo­cated HOTEL DEBRETT is smack bang in the mid­dle of the city, close to the lux­ury shopping precinct, Brit­o­mart and the Viaduct Har­bour. The Art Deco build­ing houses 25 rooms in­di­vid­u­ally styled with art­works, an­tiques and retro and mod­ern fur­ni­ture, all in bright poppy hues. The hotel’s bar, HOUSEBAR, be­came one of Auck­land’s favourite wa­ter­ing holes in the ’80s, and it’s still pump­ing 30 years on. For a drink in a more pri­vate set­ting, book to stay in the O’Con­nell room, which has its own mid-cen­tury bar. Rooms from $230 per night; book at hotelde­brett.com.
