Hotel De Brett

Settled in downtown Auckland, Hotel DeBrett links two unique precincts - High Street's hip fashion and Shortland Street's tailored commerce.
Hotel DeBrett's iconic building has been stylishly reinterpreted into a 25-room luxury boutique hotel. Every room is individually designed and complemented with eclectic furniture, New Zealand art and photography.
The famous Housebar has been meticulously restored as Auckland's premier meeting place. A private drawing room has been created for exclusive use by hotel guests - while a glass roofed atrium and courtyard form the central focal point for guests.

Hotel DeBrett is located centrally, in Auckland's fashion precinct of High St. It is a short walk from the restaurants and bars of Viaduct Harbour, the Sky Tower, Vector Arena, and the Ferry Building. It is surrounded by art galleries, theaters and the Auckland Art Gallery and is within easy reach of the Auckland Museum and the shopping and restaurants of Parnell and Ponsonby.
