Halal Hotels Auckland
The number of Muslims in New Zealand according to the 2018 census is 57,276, up 24% from 46,149 in the 2013 census. The majority of New Zealand Muslims are Sunnis but there is a large number of Shias who live in New Zealand, concentrated mainly in Auckland (the largest city of New Zealand).
By Crescent Rating, New Zealand is 63rd rated among most Muslim-friendly countries.
How many mosques are there in New Zealand?
There are at least 18 mosques in Auckland, nine in Wellington, four in Christchurch, two in Hamilton and one in Dunedin.
Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.
Many international hotels in New Zealand do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.
Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

The staff are friendly. The room is clean and the size of the room is good. We arrived almost midnight, there is a convenience store a couple of mins walk away that sells halal food.
Will stay here again if we were to.come to Auckland again.
The room was spacious. Best thing was our kids stay for free. Wifi was good.
Cleanliness was superb. Location was amazing, only walking distance to Halal Restaurant. Check in & check out process was smooth. Overnight parking was NZD30 per night and the parking was secured.
Everything is so nearby as the hotel is situated in the city centre. It is very near to restaurants and shopping centres, so you can just walk to go anywhere. As you can see, the location is the main attraction of this hotel. The hotel is very near to the Sky Tower, so we walked to reach there. I guess this hotel is very popular among Malaysian travellers as this hotel has a halal Malaysian restaurant too.
The room was moderate in size and had 2 lifts. The beds were really comfortable and the TV channels were varied.
Food excellent, portions were huge and we had enough for next day’s lunch after our first meal there – they wrapped it up for us to take. Breakfast was good, all the meat is halal, so chicken bacon, but could not tell the difference. The restaurant staff considerate and friendly.
From this hotel, a short walk to anywhere. Certainly good value for the rate we were charged.

With 207 guest rooms, a dedicated conference floor and lifestyle spaces, Grand Mercure welcomes every traveller to explore the intimate ethnic mosaic of Auckland.
For NZ standards, this passes for 5-star. The Skybus from the airport stops almost right outside the hotel, so makes it super convenient. Also located on Queen Street and walkable to the Viaduct area, so right in the heart of the CBD area.
If you have a car, there is no carpark, so you either opt for valet service or park in the commercial carpark down the road.
Rooms are what you expect for a Mercure. Not very large but comes with all the mod-cons. You either opt for a view towards the city or towards the sea. The sea-view in my opinion is not really necessary as you only get a partial view through other buildings and currently construction for the underground rail is in progress.
Top floor has a restaurant with a nice view of the city. If you check out, the concierge can keep your luggage for you if you do not need to get to the airport so early.
Location was perfect for us, close to restaurants, shops, and not the least the ferry to Waiheke. Cannot say anything about restaurant, as we took the opportunity to eat at the elegant Ortolana bistro at the nearby Britomart Pavilions.

A spacious well equipped bedroom meant that the brand has consistent standards throughout as indeed did all other aspects of the hotel. Its location just back from the harbour front was perfect for our two night stay prior to taking the ferry to South Island. Could not fault the valet parking either.
Rooms are older style but they have everything, in some rooms they even have the kitchen sink. Big bathroom with quality toiletries; bath with shower over (I’d prefer a walk in shower). Very good heater (once you figure out the controls) although it is noisy. The bed is comfortable and TV has most of the channels you want. The lifts work well with almost no waiting time. Some road noise on lower floors.
Walking distance to city shops and bars.. but best of all it’s all in-house, a good bar with snacks and small meals; a restaurant that’s excellent. We didn’t use the restaurant this time but ordered food to eat in the bar area.
