Azena Motel
Ranked #95 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed 25 November 2013

If you're heading to Christchurch, do yourself a favour and stay at the Azena Motel. This is in the perfect location - just across the road from the supermsrket, walking distance to town and not far from all other attractions such as the gondola, the Antarctic Centre and the airport. The manager was incredibly helpful and obviously takes pride in the motel. Full cooking facilities were provided and there was an excellent washer and dryer in the bathroom. All absolutely perfect for weary travellers.

We stayed here on a trip up north and found the owner to be extremely helpful and friendly. Had everything we were after although, as with most Christchurch motels and hotels at the moment, it was a bit more expensive than we would have hoped. Definitely would stay again.

I stayed here for two nights. Our apartment was spacious and beautifully decorated. It had a well-equipped kitchen, dining area, widescreen television and spa bath. There is also a washing machine and dryer in the bathroom and a garden area to the rear of the apartments. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The motel is located approx 15 minutes walk from the Newman's Intercity temporary bus stop on Bealey Ave. It is 20/25 mins from the city centre on the local bus which stops across the road from the motel and runs to Christchurch Bus Exchange. I would definitely recommend the Azena Motel!

We started our three days in a pub style accomodation which was horrific, to this. It's brilliant. Two nights in a clean, fresh, modern and warm apartment. Has exactly what you need with the homely feel. Reasonable priced. Also has a washing machine and dryer in the bathroom which was a wonderful touch. Loved our two nights here. Would definitely recommend it and stay again! Also the bonus was free wifi which was fantastic touch!!!

Almost perfect for a traveller or family, everything worked, was clean, and as a bonus the room had a washing machine and dryer. Managers/Owners were very helpful. Free Wifi, Free Parking.
Bed was comfortable, although in the summer heat it will be hot as no air conditioning. Other than that would be happy to stay again.

Room Tip: All seem good, and have parking outside the room

We stayed for two nights in March 2013. The motel is situated on a main road, a short drive into the city centre. It is a walkable distance, and we walked it once, which was pleasant enough. The room was a good size, clean and well equipped. There was a washer and dryer in the room, which was a nice touch. The reception staff were friendly, WiFi and free parking were available. The motel lacked personality/charm, the location was not ideal for the city and not a very nice location either.

Friendly hosts, modern, very clean, toasty warm with everything you need. Great location - short drive into the central city but good shops, supermarket, bakery bar etc right across the road. Bus stops right outside.
