Good one night stay

My friend and I were staying overnight in Christchurch before starting a tour the next day. The hotel was right downtown, clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff was very nice. The downtown area is still rebuilding after the earthquake, but no trouble getting around.

Shocking Shower

The Ibis proved to be a fantastic choice as the reception staff were absolutely lovely and most helpful. The central location is excellent and the free wifi access much appreciated. The room was spacious, clean and fresh. BUT ... the shower was absolutely terrible. Only a very fine mist came through the shower head which made it impossible to even rinse the soap off let alone wash my hair! Sadly we will not use the hotel again as we do need to have a decent shower.

Heart of the Historic City Center

IBIS is awell known hotel chain. This facility is well maintained and very clean. Secure parking below the structure is rather expensive ($20 / nite) otherwise one must submit to an outside parking lot for a less expensive fee. Staff is friendly and courteous. Enjoyed my stay.

Good location and fantastic staff

I had some problems with my luggage and need to fly out of Christchurch at 6 am the next day. When I arrived at the city at 8.15 am, all the shops were closed. The hotel staff went to great lengths to provide me with 3 carton boxes so that I could place my cloths into them and proceed with my flight. They even brought the tape to seal the carton boxes. Thank you to the staff of Ibis Christchurch!

Maybe the best in the CBD

If you want to stay in the CBD this just might be the best option. It's affordable and while I would consider Ibis a mid-range budget hotel, this one is certainly well maintained and our room was clean and quiet. The only downside is that Internet access is expensive.

Limited WiFi, small but very clean room

The room was very clean but our two beds were within 2 feet of each other. I wish there was a microwave in addition to the fridge. The biggest problem was the very limited WiFI, and only in the lobby. Once you started using your 30 min allotted time, even if you logged off before the 30 min expired, you lost your allotment for the day.

walk to main attractions

Shocked to see how devastated down town is 2 years after the earth quake. Still a nice shopping/cafe area 1 block away. Free WIFI through out the shopping district, about $20 a day at the hotel, don't bother with it, go have a cup of coffee and free internet instead. Decent restaurant. Walk to the botanical gardens which is fabulous. Free shuttle to the train station from the hotel.

Okay

The hotel itself is okay, but overpriced and overrated if you should have to pay the regular rate. It is close to the square and within easy walking distance to the central sights and the main bus station. This makes it great if you are traveling by public transit. The washroom has been updated and is very clean. The air conditioning unit was old and rattled quietly all night long. Unfortunately, our window faced a large white office building wall, making it very hard to gauge what the weather was like without having to go downstairs and outside first. Also,the people in the offices across the way had an excellent view of us with our curtains open. The small fridge was adequate, but the hotel provided only a few milk and coffee containers, so we had to search the staff for more.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is really close to the major downtown shopping areas, tourist shops, and the Cathedral. If you like arts and crafts make sure to get to the craft shops located in the renovated church building near the Christchurch art museum. Check what's happening at the museum itself. It has some excellent shows.
