I have read the guide, similar posts but I'm still a bit confused about where to stay in my upcoming 3-nights at Christchurch trip. I have read that after the earthquake there are still areas being reconstructed, and that now it's not such a great place to stay for tourism, but at the same time, even if we will do some day tours, we want to be close to the touristic spots and restaurants as we plan to walk and enjoy the city.
Where do you recommend us to stay? Any suggestions? Are there big price differences (room rate, parking, etc) depending on the area?
Thanks in advance. It's really a pleasure finding so many people willing to help in this forum. I am really counting the days to visit NZ!
