Just like in real estate, when it comes to choosing a place to stay in Christchurch, it is all about location, location, location. We are not talking about particular hotels by the way. There are specific areas in the city that offers a lot in terms of amenities, activities, natural attractions and proximity.
So, to help you narrow your choices, choose one from this list.
CCC (Christchurch City Centre)
You can’t go wrong in picking a hotel near the Christchurch City Centre. The Christchurch CBD is known as the “inner city” and the area is filled with a lot of great attractions including cafes, restaurants and bars. There are also several sightseeing destinations nearby as well as shopping centres.
By the way, most of the places to visit and activities to experience are within walking distance from the city centre. There are a bunch of hotels nearby. If you look hard enough, you are sure to find budget hotels that are going to give you the deal of the lifetime.
Just a couple of minutes away from the city centre sits the beautiful quintessential district of Riccarton. A vibrant community of old structures, international cuisine restaurants, cafes and community hubs.
If you are staying here, then you are sure to have a great time during the morning and at night. Riccarton is also known for its vibrant nightlife scene. Another great feature of this area is that it is home to some of the budget-friendliest motels in Christchurch.
If you want something simpler and a quieter area, Merivale is the place to go. Merivale sits between the CBD and Papanui. Merivale is known mainly for “Motel Mille,” which is an area for hotels and motels.
To be more specific, Merivale is a big spot for B&Bs and lodges. Here, you are sure to get affordable accommodation. Merivale is welcoming and its perfect if you like to walk around.
