Queen Street, Auckland
(2.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Vibrant and multicultural, Queen Street represents a major commercial thoroughfare in Auckland's central business district. The street begins on the city's waterfront and runs for approximately 3 km (1.8 mi) in a mostly south-southwesterly direction towards Auckland's residential neighborhoods. Named after Queen Victoria, the street is part of the city's main shopping district, flanked by numerous department stores, banks, and restaurant franchises. Head here on foot to see several landmark buildings, including the town hall--a major civic structure from the early 20th century, it features a giant organ, the largest musical instrument in the country.

  • All the great shops, bars and eateries seem ti be in Queen Street or just off in a lane. Down towards the water or harbour were some quaint bars with live music 
  • A very busy street with shops and restaurants. Street performers abound and there is plenty to see. Extremely busy at lunch time and at the end of the work day. 
  • A 5 minute walk from our SkyCity hotel; good possibilities to souvenirs, clothes, shoes, etc. to buy

  • Their wifi was nowhere to be found, and homeless people kept using the restroom. Other than that it's your typical Macca (Kiwi English for Mickie D's). You're better off going to the McDonald's further down Queen Street near the docks.
  • Rude staff more than half the time I'm there. I could go into detail about something that happened today but to keep it simple, the staff working wouldn't accept a monopoly voucher I had, saying I have to use their mobile app despite another McDonald's restaurant accepting them in person. and they accused me of lying about already redeeming it as the app would say I've already scanned it, but I hadn't redeemed it. They said they couldn't do anything about it and were extremely rude. Also the wi-fi is extremely slow.
  • This Mcdonald's is often in need of a bit of a clean, and sometimes the wait for the order can be a bit long. But with 24 hour service in the heart of the CBD what more can you expect. Standard Mcdonald's service, what more do you want?
  • Great location on Queen Street. Vintage structure/design, but modern seating. Almost carries a theme, but just feels out of place mostly. Ample seating, but due to high traffic, tables are rarely bussed and floors are messy.
  • It's McDonalds, dont expect more than that. But this building does have amazing architecture, which strangely fits McDonalds.
