10/10 Exceptional

Wir kannten schon das Mayfair in Adelaide und waren auch diesmal wieder sehr zufrieden. Man bucht ein Hotelzimmer primär aus einem Grund: Übernachten. Und das kann man im Mayfair auf höchstem Niveau. Die Betten sind sehr bequem, es ist absolut ruhig, und man kann ein Fenster öffnen. Dieser letzte Punkt dürfte vor allem für Menschen wichtig sein, die oft im Hotel übernachten müssen. Neben der Ruhe und der Qualität des Bettes fördert auch der Umstand, dass man bei offenem Fenster und abgeschalteter Klimaanlage schlafen kann (sofern die Außentemperaturen das zulassen), einen erholsamen Schlaf. Wir haben schon oft in Hotels übernachtet, die mehr als das Doppelte gekostet haben, und wo vor allem der Zustand der Betten eine Katastrophe war. Das freundliche Personal und die angeschlossene Bar, wo man einen ausgezeichneten Kaffee und leckere Cocktails bekommt, vervollständigen das durchweg positive Erlebnis. Auch dass man den Flughafen in wenigen Minuten erreicht, und die Innenstadt fußläufig ist, ist für Reisende sehr angenehm. Letztlich haben wir es nur bedauert, dass wir nur drei Nächte im Mayfair verbrachten. Da Christchurch auch nächstes Jahr auf unserer Reiseplanung steht, werden wir mehr Übernachtungen einplanen, und freuen uns schon heute darauf.
