I stayed here three nights while in Christchurch, two nights in a row and then a few days later before leaving the country. It is close to the CBD, however, the CBD is still devastated from the earthquake. There are 4 restaurants within walking distance, including one in the building, all of which are on the pricer side. It is just across from the Botanical Gardens so that is nice, but it is an extremely loud hotel. I believe this is a combination of thin walls (I could hear my neighbor in the room next to me snoring) as well as inconsiderate guests. Although the guests that stayed there while I was there ranged from gap year kiddies to retired seniors, the demographic seemed to veer towards the younger side. As a result, I did not get much sleep while I stayed there. Also, the staff is really not friendly and could careless about attempting to help you. I had asked for information on a particular restaurant and rather than calling the restaurant to see if they were open, I was informed that the receptionist "didn't know if they were open." Is it too difficult to dial a local number? Also, the first night I arrived one of the duvet covers was wet and it did not appear that it had been changed. Although this is the cheapest option in CHC, if I had to do it over again, I would have stayed somewhere else.
