    "Azena Review"

    I have stayed here a number of times with my wife and I have never been let down . So the highlights, friendly staff , easy check in, and never any problems with the room. Rooms are always to the same high standard very clean , a tribute to thier cleaning staff who are always friendly as well. Overall money well spent.

    My rating which is based on several stays over the past 2 years easily a 5

    "Two problems were a letdown"

    In most respects this is a good motel and I'm sure most rooms are fine, but there were a couple of issues for my room which I can't overlook.

    TV - hard to work out how to access all channels (freeview + sky) and then it turned out Sky Movies Premiere was unwatchable most of the time, and no channels were set to Sky Sports 1. Didn't complain at the time because we watched stuff from laptop instead via USB connection to the TV, and I watched some of the replay of the All Blacks on Prime.

    Bath/Shower - The bit that acts as the hot/cold/pressure control was missing a part, which we didn't realise, so no matter what we tried we couldn't get water. We had less than an hour before checkout by the time we gave up so I had to be practical and wash using the basin and a flannel. As it turns out we could have made it work if we were told ahead of time what to do. If we'd tried to shower or bath the night before I would have had time to talk to someone about it.

    "Stay at Azena"

    I love this motel. I stay here every time I visit Christchurch. The rooms have more than enough space. The décor is modern and stylish. The television I had on my last visit was HUGE! The rooms are always clean. The staff are so friendly and attentive to the guests at the motel. There is parking right outside your door, and there are shops and restaurants right across the road. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I would recommend this motel to any traveler and will be staying here next time I am in Christchurch.

    "excellent location; comfortable room"

    The hotel is clean, comfortable, and modern with free wi-fi and a large LED screen. Second-floor rooms have a small balcony and are much preferred to first-floor (ground level) where the rooms look out onto your parked car. Grocery store and a lovely local pub are within 5minutes of the hotel. A 30-minute walk gets you to the downtown area. Good value for the price.

    Just wanted to thank the team at Azena for a great stay. The property was comfortable, clean with a handy location to everything and awesome value for money. The staff were very helpful and obliging for making arrangements for my very late arrival and very early departure. I would definatley stay here again.

    "Clean, tidy, well appointed rooms - good value"

    I stayed one night. The room i had was clean and spacious with new quality fittings. Unlike some of the jaded motels/hotels that i have stayed in in NZ!

    The room was equipped with a large screen tv, kitchenette with sufficient cutlery, washing machine/dryer, smart shower that wasn't grubby or tatty and a comfy bed...that wasn't saggy and worn out! Conveniently located to the city centre with a supermarket and good eateries across the road.

    The owner responded to my booking promptly with additional information and was helpful when i arrived, assisting with my transport for the following day.

    The only downside was some traffic noise from the usual ChCh car 'hoons'.

    All in all, a competitively priced motel that is a safe bet and i would certainly use again.

    "More than sufficient if you're looking for a short stay"

    Great place!! Rooms have a fairly modern feel and are very clean & tidy with most modern cons. Has everything you need if self catering is what you prefer, with a small supermarket just a stones throw away. But if you too lazy to cook, restaurants are nearby. Oh yeah... free wifi!!!

    "Great room but lacking Reception Attention"

    The Motel room was very nice, we booked a King Spa studio, super large, with all the accommodations you might want...really well equipped. Large sofa upon entry, plenty space for suitcases, a very large flat screen TV, DVD player, washer, dryer, great shower pressure, large bathroom, kitchenette, fridge, some coffees and tees (we didnt try bkfast as we left at 6 am and the service wasn't available) but all in all very nice room, comfortable beds, light switches everywhere, laundry basket, table with chairs, very spacious, great choice. HOWEVER...... when I called the oriental lady on the phone her English wasn't very good and she couldnt understand me....that was okay, we all deal with that. However....upon arrival, I rang the desk bell 3 times with no response, so I had to go behind the desk and knock on the door kind of loud, so the lady came down and apologized that she had not heard the bell. She showed up with a baby girl on her arms. For some reason the way the Reception looks and the image I got from the Reception person after calling and no answer, gave a different image to the Azena Motel than what I got from the rooms (which are great). That first impression sort of scared me....I thought hmmmm what place is this? When I said to her that I rang the bell three times, she said the bell does not work. (???) I later had to return to the Reception to report that TV wasn't getting signal and the same thing...nobody there...rang bell just in case they had changed battery...went behind the desk..., knocked on door and someone came. (TV issue was non important it worked fine). So when I was checking in with lady with baby on her arms, and she asked me to pay, I paid for my night and she gave me instructions of this and that and never gave me my room key. She was about to turn around and go back to her room or house (whatever is behind the door) and I had to ask for my room number and key...... That is just minor things, but that first impression counts when you go someplace for the first time. However, the rooms, are super. And the motel is across the road from a bunch of eating places and a supermarket half a block away....etc. We didnt go to town as that was a 1 night stay prior to flying out.

    "Dishonest business man"

    I booked this hotel for 3 nights and it is a nice facility. However being there on business my plans changed and I had to check out after 2 nights. It took over an hour to finally get someone to open the door so I could check out. I called, knocked called knocked and finally got the attention of the owner. I explained to him my plans had changed and I would need to check out a day early. His first reaction was that I will be charged for that night even if I do not stay. I disagreed since I did not cancel my reservation or not show up as his cancellation policy reads. After a quite heated conversation, I told him I would just find a homeless person to give my key to for the night since he insists on charging me anyway. Once I left and was 5 minutes down the road he called and said he would not charge me. I thought this was great of him. I offered to bring the key back more than once and he insisted I just put it in a mailbox and it would be returned to them. i did just as he instructed. When I received my credit card bill I was in fact charged for the night I did not stay. When I contacted him he said I did not return the key and he had to have the locks changed due to me not returning the key. I explained to him I did exactly what he told me and he basically called me a liar and said it was my fault that I was charged. Although it was a nice place, I do not recommend staying there unless you enjoy being deceived by this business owner.

    This is a perfectly good motel. I spent 3 nights here, and have no complaints at all about the accommodation. There was a good restaurant across the nearby intersection, so good food was not a problem. Deafness as a result of Friday night's live band in the restaurant, was.

    "Has the potential to be very good"

    We stayed for 2 nights in January 2013. The unit was comfortable but the towels were not good quality (the hems had come unstitched on some of them and they were quite thin) and the shower leaked badly so had to use towels to mop up the bathroom floor after showering. I'm sure that the motel will attend to the leaky shower though as I brought it to their attention. This motel has the potential to be very good, just a little more attention to detail required.

    We found Azena online late on the night we needed accommodation and it was a great rate. From arriving late until the time we left the following morning we were thoroughly impressed by every aspect. We have stayed in many motels and hotels worldwide & without a doubt Azena is right up there. It is so well appointed, quiet, modern, warm & inviting. We would recommend this to anyone & will definitely stay here again.

    Thanks to Jason . Great help. Rooms are small but worth it. Spa is more like a bath tub. $20 was waste of money and I think anyone should be agree with that. Please do not charge other people. I don't mind $155 a night because we were family. We enjoyed it. Regards
