Colombo in the City
Ranked #13 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We stayed here in comfortable room 809 on the top floor as the first stop on our honeymoon road trip around the South Island and we're glad we did. The location is fantastic and completely within walking distance of down town Christchurch, and Colombo in the City provides hotel quality amenities and service.

We'd happily stay again!

Nice spacious room with spa bath and good selection of tv channels. The reception is very friendly and took time to explain the current road closures and sites to see in the red zone. The bed was large and comfy with electric blankets

The room was of a good size and featured a partial kitchen, and plenty of room for belongings. The host was extremely pleasant and helpful, advising us of routes, local eateries, attractions, and most importantly keeping the room warm ;)

Would definitely stay here again.

The host was so helpful, got us reservations for dinner, made sure our room was perfect - even with cookies & milk! Loved the decor & layout. Our car's battery died and we received quick & competent help to get us on our way. Our favorite NZ hotel yet!

Rooms were very nice and clean and friendly host gave lots of information which was needed as many shops and restaurants were destroyed in the earthquake and not yet replaced. No supermarket within walking distance if you hope to self cater.

A bit of a maze to get to at first but this was later negated by their hospitality. The lady made an effort to map out routes and provide general details of the area. The room was larger than expected, clean and tidy. Parking was tight but available freely.

The host was very friendly and spent some time explaining where the red zones were and where we could and could not go. He went out of his way to assist us in finding a restaurant to eat, even making the booking on our behalf and managing to get the restaurant to squeeze us in with very short notice. Highly recommended

Stayed: May 2013
