Despite the dearth of international-chain of hotels in Christchurch Central, one could still find a hotel situated right next of it in Ibis Christchurch - about the only hotel of choice at the moment. There is no lacking of community get-togetherness in Re:Start Zone across the road from the hotel when we were there on last Friday evening 14 Dec. I could see the resilient spirit among the residents from these community-programmes.
When returning from long distance coach from far flung South Island cities, this hotel is good for overnight transit stop to take a flight the early morning after. The hotel has a good shuttle arrangement which costs NZ$25 for 4 commuters.
The room. like other Ibis-chain of hotels, is characterised by its compactness of room and small-size bed/flimsy soft-pillows. At the promo rate which I booked through Accor hotels months earlier, this hotel has everything a traveller would need - laundry to wash clothings, a restaurant to fill the hungry stomachs. However the watering holes are situated streets away. Supermarket is about 5-8 mins walk from hotel.
