We stayed at Lorenzo one night after taking the TransAlpine train to Christchurch. We needed a place close to food options, the train station, and the airport as we didn't have a car and were leaving for the airport very very early the next morning. It was a perfect location. We had a 2 bedroom unit with 5 adults and... More

Room was warm and clean at our arrival. The owner is friendly and helpful, booked a shuttle bus to the airport for us with a very good price. The only thing to be aware at the moment is that they are doing some "earthquake reparations" at the moment so some scaffoldings and workers around. Nothing major just thought would have... More

I think the difference is the owner Ping; as an example, before we arrived for our one night stay, she had tried to arrange transport to the train station for our 6am departure, but couldn't. So when we arrived she offered to get up and take us her self!!! A genuine gesture of help. It's a neat and clean motel,... More

Place was warm and friendly from the moment we arrived. Two desperate queen bedrooms with there own TV's. Spa bath to relax in and a kitchen fitted out with everything you could need. Close to everything you could possible want including a very short 5min drive to Christchurch CBD. Unfortunately there was construction going on to fix earthquake damage at... More

Walking distance to restaurants; friendly staff who are very helpful; nice clean and comfortable rooms with small balcony or patio; secure; lovey bit bathroom that had a spa with all the toiletries that I needed. Suited me as I was on business but would be great for couples and families.

The Lorenzo, while a little more expensive than some, is worth the extra cost. The owners were welcoming, even though we arrived before the check-in time. We were in Executive Studio 1, with a large sliding glass door opening onto the parking lot. The room was large with a kitchenette, which include little extras like packets of a variety of... More

It is a bit overwhelming looking online for places to stay in Christchurch but we settled on this place because of the reviews here in TripAdvisor! And it ended up as the right place for us! It is newly refurbished after the earthquakes and, for example, if I could have packed up and taken the shower home with me I... More

Well run tidy property, well appointed motel rooms. Visiting Christchurch for business and looking for a clean, wifi enabled, quiet property to stay at for one night. From my experience this is a good property with only one negative for me and that was Riccarton road, this is a busy road, day and night and Lorenzo is right on it.... More

I saw that this place was 2nd in the city on trip advisor but the photos made me think it looked like a motel that was a bit dated in decor and furnishings. I was wrong. It has a lovely duvet cover, clean and good quality sheeting, clean & modern bathroom and great shower! I didn't have a spa room... More
