Right in the noisy centre of Manchester, so don't expect much sleep, rooms at the rear of the hotel are seriously exposed to drunken loutish behaviour from the side streets, refuse bins were noisily collect at 6.15 each morning in the rear side street (outside our window) and drinkers thought it useful to topple over said bins in the early hours. It was like a pissed skittle alley. One plus: The breakfasts and waiter service was good.

This hotel is in the center of Manchester and as such ideal for exploring the city. Almost any place that is interesting for tourists can be reached on foot. The reception was very friendly and helpful. The building is a bit old, so allow for some squeaking and some noise, although not much. The rooms offer all that is needed. There is a parking garage about 10 minutes on foot with a reduced rate of 8 pounds per 24 hours. Our room rate did not include breakfast, but there are many shops around t... Read more

We only stayed in the hotel for one night, but it was all fine. The room was nice and quite clean. The only complaint would be the receptionist who was working upon our arrival, after 5 minutes of ignoring us, when she finally checked us in, she could not have made us feel less important if she tried! Apart from that though we liked our stay.

Booked an executive room on the top floor and was impressed by the space and how modern it was. Strange arrangement as you take the lift to floor 4 then steps to 5th. Enter the room (which has its' own stairs) to the 6th - kind of 'quirky' but I liked it. Room overlooked Portland Street and Piccadilly Gardens, however no view due to Dorma style windows in the roof. Average breakfast served at the table (I prefer buffet) although our stay was reasonable priced for a city centre hotel, so would r... Read more

I stayed there for one night after a long flight,the room was average,clean ,staff was nice but there were a group of men standing in front of the hotel who were obviously high which wasn't nice when you are entering the hotel . The major negative thing for me was the noise outside my window , there was some sort of an engine that kept going all night and I couldn't sleep at all (I stayed in the 3rd floor ) it is located within a walking distance from manchester piccadily which is a positive thi...

The hotel is in a great location being in the centre of Manchester and close to Piccadily Station. We stayed here as we were going to a concert at the academy which was about a 15-20 minute walk away and the Arena is not too far away either. The price was fantastic £72 for 4 people all because the rooms we were in didn't have windows. You are given the option of having a window but if all your doing is staying the one night I don't really see what the problem is there. Beds were really comfy an... Read more

The hotel was lovely and very comfortable. The staff were so friendly and went the extra mile (barr one) and even recommended places for us to do things in. It was in a perfect location close to everything and so clean. Brilliant stay!

This hotel was reasonable and right in the heart of things. I wanted a hotel close to Piccadilly train station and it is only a 10 minute walk. The room was basic but okay. If you step out of the front of the hotel, go left and you are at the train station, right and you are at the Arndale Centre, straight and you are in Chinatown and behind the hotel is the Northern Quarter where all the bars are. Piccadily Garden's Metrolink station is a minute away and I was able to take the street car to S... Read more

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. We booked directly with the hotel and received the best rate including breakfast. The rooms are dated yes, however there is everything you need and the staff are very helpful if you need anything extras, we asked for extra towels and they were brought within then minutes. The breakfast is excellent not busy and made fresh not buffet which personally we prefer also with pot of tea/coffee brought fresh to your table. The Gardens is in an excellent locat... Read more

Stayed here as going to a concert at The Etihad Stadium. Was short notice and this was the cheapest that was close to the venue. Our arrival didn't start well, the entrance is a set of steps and double doors in between shops, 2 gentleman were sat on the steps doing a obvious drug deal and were not going to move for us to enter so we had to clamber over them, entering the lobby we were somewhat dubious but then pleasantly surprised, check in was easy and staff were very polite, We stayed in a ...

Went for a bargain room. Paid £30.00. They should have paid me to stay there!! Room smelled of wee. It was gross and made me feel unclean from the minute I walked through the door. Had it not been extremely late at night and had I not been exhausted I would have demanded a refund and walked away. Unfortunately I just had to stick it out but never again, ever!!

The only positive thing I have to say about this hotel is its central position between Piccadilly Station and the Arndale Centre. The dated room I was given had no window and no air conditioning. It was really hot, stuffy and airless. A fan was provided which was noisy and just pushed the hot air around the room. There was only one plug socket which was being used for the fan so nowhere to charge phone or laptop. At £116 I felt completely ripped off.

Stayed here midweek The room was clean but basic and very warm. Had to open the window but that made it very noisy i didn't sleep do to this. It is central but the area is a little rough and when we arrived we had to walk through a group of men clearly on something. We won't be booking here again.

From the street one might imagine this place rents rooms by the hour. But, appearances are deceptive. It's not that sort of place. What it is is a hotel straight out of the early 1990s. If you've stayed in a chain motel in the USA you'll know what I mean. Furniture that's been around a while - clean, serviceable but wearing - worn stair carpets, luggage scuff marks on the walls peeling paint here and there and patches of black around some windows that ought to be sorted. That sort of thing... Read more

Don't take any notice of the terrible reviews. Yes the hotel could do with an internal face-lift but the rooms are comfortable and the staff are incredibly friendly. I would recommend putting door closers on the room doors though as they do tend to slam. Central and comfortable. I will be back.

Room and staff were beautiful only problem we had was the room was far to warm I Think they should see about air con but the only downside to the hotel would defo stay in the hotel again though was right in be centre of everything which was also a bonus

The reception staff were lovely, even kindly lending me an umbrella in the rain. The restaraunt staff fine - although one waiter didnt appear to be overly happy to be there. The hotel itself was the let down as per pictures. I had to keep a fan on constanlty to cope with the heat and lack of ventilation. The lighting is not adequate for the rooms but tge worst thing was the noise. From 7/8 am on each morning I have stayed here Ive been disturbed by a range of noises including banging, what sou...

For under £35 I got a small double room, a window (overlooking a plant area) a decent shower, breakfast, free (good) wifi and a complementary drink from the bar. The hotel is a bit tired but the staff are friendly and its in a fantastic location for the city centre. I've stayed a couple of times and will be back again. For the price bracket - I think it's great value.

Unfortunately, no other hotels were available in Manchester due to a concert therefore we had to stay here. Our room had no windows, the room smelt of dust, the toilet would barely flush, our electricity didn't work so we had hotel staff in and out our room, there was a kebab box left on the corridor of our room. I could go on and on... Dreadful stay. We were also charged £150 per night which was daylight robbery. Never again!

I'm writing this at 5.30 in the morning whilst still at the hotel. I've been kept awake for most of the night by an extremely noisy air conditioning fan positioned just outside of the window of my room. It's been like Chinese water torture. Every time it cuts out, I drift off to sleep and then it cuts in again!!!! To make matters worse, the air conditioning isn't actually for the bedrooms. The hotel is tired and basic. The bed is of a very poor quality and not in any way comfortable. I've staye... Read more

Location fantastic for access to city centre. Everything you would expect to find in a hotel room without setting the world alight and for a great price. Staff really friendly and helpful. Let us check in early so we could dump our bags in the room to explore Manchester. Great hotel for a overnight or short stay in Manchester.

OK, I liked a fair bit about this hotel. Our room--602--is at the top, and was a good size, with skylight windows and sloped ceilings (I love sloped ceilings). Location-wise, it is quite cose to the train station and within walking distance of a great many interesting things. ON the othert hand, the neighbourhood seems a bit sketchy. I would have been nervous about outside after dark. The bed was big but a trifle hard. Breakfast was included, which is always nice, and that included a full Englis... Read more

We booked the wrong night on hotels.com and turned up ready to stay over. The manager on reception pointed our mistake to us (I'd accidentally booked for august) and was unbelievably lovely and put me at ease despite the fact I'd made a bit of an idiot out of myself. He then cancelled the booking (which was non refundable online) and waived the refund. A man of his word. Will definitely be back... hopefully on the right date this time!

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights, and had a great stay! Loved the free breakfast, and was a reasonable price for travellers on a budget. The only thing was we could hear everything, but that's what you get for being right in the main area.

I considered the pro's and cons. Two main things to look for in a hotel are a comfy bed and good shower. The hotel delivered on both. Twenty years ago I got my first job as a weekend chambermaid and at that time the hotel I worked in was dated and I have to say the rooms here were reminiscent of my first job. Reception area is smart. Overall, I would say the hotel is not bad

Stayed for one night. Location is excellent right in the city centre 5 mins walk from Piccadilly train station and 15 mins from Victoria station. Room was average size , clean with comfy bed and good shower. I got the summer deal which costs £50 and included breakfast and a free drink voucher. Breakfast was nice - continental buffet and cooked to order full English. Friendly staff and the wi-fi was good. Would stay again especially if theres deals on again.

I booked a single room with window, it was a disaster. The window was broken and I couldn't open it. I think there were 25/26 °C in my room. I informed the reception and they said me that there was a fan in the room. A little fan!! I paid for room with window but it would have been better if I booked for a room unless window. I would have saved my money. Moreover the aspirator in the bathroom didn't work!! If in the hotel there wasn't air conditional or air re-circulation, it should be written... Read more

I got what I paid for. £65 for two nights b&b is the cheapest I could find for a half decent hotel. Basic no frills room. Tv, shower, tea and coffee etc. My first room had a broken window and the fan was just circulating 22 degree heat around. I asked to switch rooms for the second night and it was much better although the weather had generally cooled.

No air conditioning ok but window couldn't be opened to which would allow an air flow through the room. Toilet slow filling and after 10-15mins can only be used again and review card left from customer before us so clearly shows how much they care about people opinions. But other than that fantastic location for city centre and great valve for money.

If only this hotel would use some of the high room price to purchase and install aircon! Not worth the money and definitely do not visit when the weather is good, or you'll be roasting all night long. Extremely disappointing.
