    This is my go too accomodation in Christchurch. ”

    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

    It is strategic located in the city centre and you may easily find restaurants in walking distance or you may also dine in their restaurant. The room is considerably smaller and just nice in size for single or 2 travelers. We found the price was reasonable for one night stay in Christchurch.

    I am not familiar with NZ cost of living but going by the cost of petrol and food it should not be cheap for a room in the city centre. Very efficient use of space and I guess expected since it was located in the city centre that the room would not be big though it was the smallest room I have ever stayed in. Overall pleased.

    Location is good ”

    I selected this hotel mainly because I was travelling to Dunedin by bus early morning & returning from Queenstown to Christchurch by intercity bus. Bus terminal is one minute away. This hotel is located in a street with lots of shopping & eating places as well as a supermarket. Rooms are odly shaped as bathrooms are inside d room but this did not bother us as we were hardly in d room. Don't let them fool u about the internet. They said they give 2GB for a day but we hardly used internet as we were only in the room at night to sleep. Our suppose 2GB was over just going through Facebook for few minutes. I had to argue with duty manager about this to get more internet time.

    Great value stay, friendly staff”

    Great value for what you get, essentially everything you'd need. The room was very well designed, making use of the space available, very clever. The only problem I really had was with the room controls for the lights / alarms etc. which was a bit confusing, and started beeping at me in the middle of the night. Even so, would definitely recommend.

    Nothing great..”

    Stayed two nights, the moment we stepped in we regretted our choice as the room as very smelly and stayed this way after housekeeping. Location is good but not the best. Food at the cafe was really bad and wildly overpriced, staff seemed disinterested.

    Very low price reflects the kind of room you get ”

    We were a group of 6 family members and friends, stayed in three rooms for one night. The room rates were exceptionally low, but the room facilities reflected that fact, where we had no windows and room sizes not much bigger than the double bed. You have to pay 15 NZD for parking for one day. For an additional 22 NZD per person, you can get breakfast buffet... which was decent.

    central, good location and clean”

    i booked the king bed room, it was good, bed is clean and so were the toilets. only thing is i wished that the laundromat was open 24hr instead of only from 7am-10pm as we are usually out and only back late at night at the hotel. also would be even better if the rooms can have a simple microwave each or a shared one at each floor, as sometimes there really arent much food options around late at night and we could at least purchase some microwavable food to be microwaved in the room for eating. i would also appreciate if complementary parking could be given like other hotels instead of us having to pay $15 a day despite being patrons of the hotel. overall im still satisfied with the hotel as it was value for money for the location.

    A 5 star stay in Christchurch”

    The hotel is located in the centre of Christchurch. The room is super clean, the shower is great and the bed is very very comfy. We like this hotel very much. 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. Overall, a very good stay.

    We chose this hotel because it was cheap, modern and located Downtown. We booked the queensize bedroom (15mts2). We really liked the hotel, despite the TINY rooms, it was very well equiped in a compact way. Even the bathroom. It's a very good option If you need to stay one or two nights close to the CBD.

    Good location near cathedral, shopping mall and supermarket. The room is really small but clean. There is only one chair for two guests to use so one guest has to sit on the bed. However, the bed is set a bit high and the mattress is too soft to sit on it.
