Pros: Location, rooms, easy check in and out
Cons: Lift speed
Location: Shops, eating places, tourist team, Cardboard Cathedral and New Start Mall in easy walking distance.
Checked in after midnight, staff member was helpful and efficient, parking for rental car in vacant lot 2 doors down at $4 per day. Room was quiet and clean, central Christchurch in easy walking distance with the tourist tram in the next building. A return trip for us, would stay there again

This is where we stay every time we go to chch. But this time was disappointing. Lifts need upgrade. Tiles cracked in floor. The restaurant was not good the menus limited. What they did offer did not show case food. Nz lamb made into stew....we actually walked out in the end very disappointing. Maybe chief has changed. Other than that everything else was perfect.

We arrived CHC around 8pm after a long drive from Fox glacier. The lady at the counter was very helpful to give us a lot of tips to enjoy our last two days in New Zealand. Hotel is well located in the city centre. Some good restaurants are nearby.

Very modern hotel in the Christchurch City Center

5 out of 5
by from Hawaii
Posted Jan 9, 2017
Pros: Nice large bathroom with ammenities. Modern and efficient. Great staff.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: New Regent Street is across the street from the hotel and there are fun shops and restaurants. The tram station is right behind the hotel.
It survived the terrible earthquake of 2011 so it is safe. Comfortable, stylish, clean and efficient with great staff, esp. Gwen who helped me retrieve my backpack which I had forgotten on the Super Shuttle. Located so close to a cute, small shopping district filled with restaurants and shops plus the tram station is behind the hotel if you want to see the city, hop on, hop off method. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in the center of the city...there are still much construction going on as well as cordoned off areas where some buildings are still unsafe. After our South Island tour we will be returning to the Rendesvouz.

Its still in the middle of an earthquake zone

3 out of 5
Posted Jan 8, 2017
Pros: It was central
Cons: The decor in the dining room. The run down feeling in the corridors.
Location: It was near a lot of barren earthquake sites but it was central to the arts centre etc.
The King Size room was substantially smaller than we thought it would be-the restaurant is overrated and not aesthetically pleasant. We paid $28 for fish and chips with a small portion of chips and very small fish. Its not a 4.5 star hotel. Doors in the Hall on our floor were proppedi open with hand towels. Door stoppers were lying loose in the hallway. .

The best hotel in Christchurch downtown area

by from Washington, DC
Posted Jan 6, 2017
Cons: There are only two elevators and they're both super slow.
My husband and I visited Christchurch for the first time and decided to celebrate the New Year there. I'm really glad we selected this hotel. The room is small for the rate that we paid, but hotel options were limited around the holidays. There aren't that many options to start with since the city is still rebuilding from the earthquakes. The Rendezvous is located right next door to an indoor shopping center that the tram goes through. It's also conveniently located across the street from the start of New Regent Street so we always had plenty of food and dining options. The Re:Start shopping area and Hagley Park were short walks away. The hotel staff is super friendly and helpful. The lobby is cozy and relaxing, especially when they turned the fireplace on.
