The Red Monkey is small, friendly and located in the heart of cosmopolitan Ponsonby. The Red Monkey is decidedly a cut above the norm, providing fresh, comfortable accommodation in intimate surroundings with a touch of the exotic. You will find all you need and more - perfect for those new to the city. We welcome long-term guests and can often also accommodate those wishing to stay a shorter period.

The Red Monkey is a very special base in Auckland - a place where you will be comfortable, safe and secure, meeting people and < relaxing before stepping out to explore Auckland and its surrounds. True relaxation for those just passing through or looking for somewhere to take a little more time out from being on the move. We welcome guests of all ages who are looking for a different experience, whether travelling solo, or as a couple. Mix and mingle - be as social as you wish or spend some quiet time on your own in a private corner of the lush tropical garden.

When you want to explore the world outside, Auckland is right there. Catch a bus just outside the gate. Walk to the City or the gym - it only takes a quarter of an hour. Closer at hand, you have all the eclectic delights of Ponsonby, with its cosmopolitan mix of people and fascinating vibes. Moments from our door is Ponsonby Road, where you will find fantastic budget or upmarket eateries, galleries, fashion, bookshops and nightlife, medical facilities, banks, convenience stores. There are larger supermarkets a short walk or bus trip away. Or wander down the leafy side streets lined with character villas for a taste of Auckland at its historic and contemporary best.
