Very Good Place for A Short Stay”

1. Clean, simple and modern. 2. Location. 3 Value for money.

BreakFree on Cashel well served our purpose to stay in Christchurch. We flied in and out from New Zealand via Christuchurch and we would like to have a clean place for the stopover. BreakFree on Cashel did a great job. The room is not big and it does not have kitchenware. But it has everything eles you need, including a mini bar and iron board. The room is very clean and the bed is also quite comfortable. The free wifi is 500MB per day. It is quite fast and can well serve your needs to get necessary information online. It is at the center of the city and near Re:Star Mall and Botanic Garden. We stayed twice in this place - 2 nights when we just landed in Christchurch and 1 night when we finished our journey in New Zealand and flied back from Christchurch.

Great deal in Christchurch CBD”

If you're looking for a clean, quiet bed in the middle of Christchurch, then consider the Breakfree on Cashel. For the price, you aren't going to get a better location, in fact, it's as central as accommodation twice as expensive. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but they make good use of the space (and anyone who has travelled in Asia will barely notice). The storage space under the bed comes in quite handy, and the shower is a funky design you won't find in too many locations. For those looking for budget accommodation, you won't be disappointed.

Awesome location, excellent value for money”

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at BreakFree on Cashel and can't recommend it enough. The location is perfect - a short walk to fantastic cafes (I highly recommend C1 and Unknown Chapter for amazing breakfasts), and of course it's right in the middle of the CBD with all of the new and exciting shops that seem to spring up every month. Check in was an easy, staff friendly and parking convenient ($15 a night). This is my 'go to place' when booking in Christchurch for when it's just me travelling.

Best Hotels in Christ Church”

Room Size . Clean Sheets. 24 hr Room Service , Bar :)

It was very comfortable stay. We had 3 kids ( 4, 9, 13) and 5 Adults. The bar and cafe made a huge difference...plus the quality of the food and service was super nice. Very polite staff and accommodating. Will stay there again if we return and will definitely recommend to other who are going to the city of Christchurch. Super close to all the attraction and easy access to public transport and restaurants. Many Thanks BreakFree :)

Convenient”

location quality affordable

I stayed in one of the internal rooms with no windows. It was odd not having windows but their lighting systems are clever and help overcome that. The whole building is very modern and clean. The room itself is a very clever design so there is room for everything and no wastage. It was great as a solo traveller but the room may force you to be intimate if you had two people - try it and see! It's only a few minutes walk from the Bus Exchange and therefore is extremely convenient to transport and to the centre of Christchurch. The room was not particularly soundproof - I was woken by slamming doors down the corridor, people walking past talking and the sound of pipes in the walls as someone flushed a toilet upstairs. But to be honest I also had that in an apartment in Europe where I lived! I would definitely go there again using an AGODA deal.

Location, Cleaniness, Price

The room may seems small by photo but it actually felt much spacious thanks to the room design. The in room mirror make the room brighter and the storage underneath the bed was good to keep big luggage organized. The hotel is quite new and very clean. The only downside would probably be the on-going construction surrounding the hotel which is quite dusty. We do not have a lengthy stay (just one night) which I can tolerate with it. No worry on the noise as it is completely silence in the night. Thanks to the construction, there are plenty of space to serve as car park beside the hotel. In overall, a great hotel for a quick stay in Christchurch to start and end our trip to New Zealand.

Very convenient but small rooms...all about locations!”

For the pricing and convenient location, this is the best option in Christchurch. It's the central locations for travelers and having all the food options very close by. Although, the rooms are very confined and it can feel very tight since some rooms have no windows. But if you spend most of your days outside it won't matter. The whole point of traveling is being outdoor anyway. I would recommend this place for it's location and affordable pricing.

I have stayed at break free over 50 times, every stay has been amazing! I work as a paramedic in the city, the rooms are well insulated - so always have a great sleep and You really can’t beat the value for money. On occasion I have had to stay elsewhere in the city When breakfree has been fully booked (as I always book last minute)and I am always disappointed and miss the restaurant, bar, breakfast and cozy rooms at breakfree. Not to mention the location! It’s right in the shopping district and “his lordships lane” bar and nightclub district scene. Staff are always super

The hotel location is great at the center of the city surrounded by city mall, Re:Start mall, cathedral square and Christchurch bus interchange, all are within 5 minutes walking distance. The room is a bit small but realistic with the price paid for. The restaurant and cafe at the lobby is great as well. All of their staffs provide great hospitality.

I love the hotel! The location is at the heart of the city and nearby to the shopping district. It is also near to many eateries. Also, i love the room! It is so cozy and clean. The best part is the toilet! So unique and one of a kind. It was unfortunate that I could stay here for only 1 night. I will definitely return to stay in this hotel again should I come to Christchurch again. I hope it can be soon!

The beds are really comfortable and I can honestly say I have never stayed in a hotel as quiet as this. Theres even a bar downstairs with decent NZ craft beer on tap. Couldn't recommend highly enough and its my go-to next time I'm in Christchurch.

There are also good food nearby so you don’t have to worry about food. The only problem we have is that their laundry room is closed after 10pm so we can’t do our laundry at night time.
