Me and my two mates stayed in a triple room at this hotel. We paid $140 NZD per night for the room consisting of three single beds, which was ideal for us, as this bedding configuration was pretty difficult to find. Stayed there for three nights, and we were very impressed by the service and helpfulness of the staff. The room was spotless, and the location was excellent, right in the CBD near Cathedral Square. Even with this central location, the hotel was very quiet and we didn't hear any noise from outside or other rooms. The temperature inside the hotel was very comfortable, the shower worked well, great tv reception and movies were available for purchase. The only drawback to the room was its size. There was very limited space to move. However, this was not an issue for us, as we didn't spend a lot of time in the room and were happy to sit on our beds.

Would happily stay there again.

For NZ$99/night, you can't go wrong with this place. The hotel is only a couple of years old so is in like new condition. The room was average size by North American standards. However, the bathroom was small with only a shower. We had a corner room on the 7th floor with a nice city view towards Littleton Harbour. This hotel is only a block away from the square. There are a a wide variety of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. I would not recommend eating in the hotel though. There are better choices nearby including a breakfast restaurant across the street. Internet pricing is high, however, this seems to be par for the course in New Zealand since their price wasw similar to what I found in other hotels.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is located in the heart of town. The rooms were very small and cramped, it was clean and the staff was nice.

Initially I looked at the Hotel So, but the reviews werent great so went with Ibis, glad I did. Whilst in the middle of Christchurch, its on a reasonably quiet street. Rooms was smallish with two double beds, small wardrobe and small but clean bathroom.
Easy to get to and from with the free yellow shuttle bus stop just around the corner in cathedral sq. Only down side was the expensive internet connection at $35/day. Although a cheaper alternative in available in the lobby.
Overall a nice hotel, with professional staff. Would I recommend people stay there - yes. Would I stay there again - for sure.

The ibis is new looking and looks a lot like any other Ibis. It is clean and fresh. The rooms are an average size. The best part about the hotel is that it is right beside the main square in ChCh. It was a bit hard to find parking as our vehicle wouldn't fit in their parking lot. We stayed for one night before flying to Australia, and it was a solid experience. The staff was helpful and explained all about the city for us. The fire alarm went off at 5:30am and we all had to evacuate. The staff was polite and handled the situation well.

I Checked in to the Ibis and was greeted warmly by the staff who were very helpful and welcoming.
When I went to my room I was impressed with the size, layout and cleanliness of it, and as it was a Saturday night in the middle of the town I was pleased to get a great night’s sleep in a very quiet room.
The rooms are small like a Hong Kong room but for a 3 star hotel it was well worth the $99 NZD that I paid.
Due to the downtown location I would not pre pay for breakfast as the only options were scrambled eggs along with sausages hash browns and some cereals and basic others like prunes etc.
There are many options within 100 Metres from the Ibis which are better value but for a breakfast before working it is fine.
As previously mentioned the internet in the room is very expensive but the lobby internet is $5.00 NZD for 1/2 hour is good value.
The biggest downfall is the lack of programs on the television which makes staying in the room boring.
The bar is a bit sterile though a safe place for a drink.
All in all I would stay here again for the location and extremely friendly and helpful staff who made my stay enjoyable.
