The Ibis Christchurch is ideal as a transit hotel and nothing else. We stayed in a kingsize room which was tiny. Small poky bathroom made it even more average. I definitely wouldn't want to spend more than a night there. The front desk staff were lovely as an upside to our stay.

We spend one night in this hotel. It is very clean, and in very good location, close to city center. The room is not so big, but for us it was OK. The staff was very helpful. I can recommend this hotel to everyone, who visit to Christchurch.

Room was great but the check in was disappointing. The staff member was obviously 'over it', we arrived at 7.00 pm in the dark. No information was offered regarding nearby places to eat, we ventured out and ended up finding the Casino. We did not realise the devastation in Christchurch, it was very confronting. There was a mix up with... More
