Every Monday, the Accor Hotels website runs an offer for the following Friday and Saturday nights. I guess it's designed to offload unsold rooms - so if a match is on, or a big concert, you'll not have much luck. But sometime, you can find a bargain. We picked up a Friday night room for £25. That's crazy! As to the hotel itself - well, it's fine and central, and for the price I paid I was more than happy. The staff were really nice as well. No complaints!

It's a city centre Ibis, so not particularly exciting, but clean and well located at a good price. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Worth noting there is more than one Ibis in Manchester - yours truly ended up back at the wrong one which was a bit confusing ???

Grat location, very comfortable beds. Shower was amazing, great value for money. Also the staff were lovely, if I could give one negative pointer it would be the toilet doesn't flush all that great the water pressure is too weak. But it doesn't matter all that much.

Thought the staff were very friendly and helpful ??? Rooms were good and as requested clean and all people in the party were happy . Breakfast was okay but I do like a fried egg with my breakfast .

Great place right next to the start of the Great Manchester Run so very handy to collect my race no the day before and extremely handy to nip to the toilet minutes before I started the race! Room was exactly what was required with lots of nice restaurants nearby. It was a 15 minute walk from Piccadilly station too.

This is a standard Ibis: modern minimalism with a comfy bed. The buffet breakfast includes a wide variety of cooked and cold items. The wifi is good. The location is great for tourists. The city has a free shuttle bus system and route #1 goes right in front of the hotel. (Catch the shuttle at the regular bus stop in front of the Manchester One building one block to the left out the hotel door.) One tip: if you are noise sensitive be sure to ask in advance for an inside room. Portland Street... Read more

Was pleasantly surprised by this place. I haven't stayed in an ibis for some years. Although it's clearly a budget hotel the facilities are more than adequate. I didn't get a cheap price as I booked rather late for a very busy weekend. However the room was nice, and the new bathroom pods are very good. This experience will make me consider ibis in the future.

The room was fine but the hotel is undergoing refurbishment so you had to walk through dirt & dust to get to the room also plastic on the carpet the work is very noisy so no chance to rest between 9-6pm!!! I was not for warned about the work when I made the booking or at check in. Road noise also very loud 24hrs as its a city centre location but ear plugs are provided. Staff helpful breakfast good

Stayed here on a business trip this week. Nice entrance/restaurant area, stylish. Great room and the bathroom pods are a nice space. Common areas on each floor need some work but the hotel is undergoing refurbishment. Not happy about the single 'ironing room' particularly in a busy city centre hotel but fortunately not a queue. Breakfast had a great choice for this type of hotel and tasty.

Reasonable priced rooms in a nice location. Staff very friendly and helpful on check in. The room was small but quite adequate. There is a bar area downstairs, which never seemed busy to me but was quite pleasant to sit with a drink whilst waiting for a friend to meet me. We didnt want the room cleaned as was having a lay in and the cleaner left a bag filled with toiletries outside when she saw the "do not disturb sign". I must say I have travelled the world staying in some lovely hotels and nev... Read more

Absolute disgrace of a hotel made a mess of my booking resulting in me losing £80. No interest at all in trying to help other than trying to get me to book again for the correct dates. Made no effort to try help sort it out with accourn the booking agency.

I have to say I was impressed with the service they provided during my 3 nights stay with extended families. We had 3 rooms and checked in separately, but upon asking, they managed to get us a joining room. Whenever we had any requests (extra towels/getting a 7 seater cab etc), these were always done in good time and accurately. We were greeted with a smile. The only downside is that the main street can be noisy at times, although the hotel has tried to address this by providing ear plugs. The... Read more

Having stopped at a rather poor hotel the week prior, I was amazed at how nice this was for the same money per night. The room was clean, the bed was extremely comfy, the free wifi came in handy to catch up on emails, and the hotel even issues free earplugs if you need them, a nice touch. The breakfast was fab, it kept me going all day, and there was plenty to pick from, all unlimited, too!! I'd thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone staying in the City, I hope to stop there again myself!!

Having read some horrendous reviews of this hotel, I called the front desk to get some insight info about the place. The girl was lovely and allocated me a room at the rear of the hotel as it's much quieter and away from the refurbishment works and the street. The rooms are freshly renovated and are much better than any Ibis I've seen. Tea & coffee facilities and ear plugs are provided, as if free wifi. The bathroom pods reminded me of uni but they're much bigger and no problems using the sh... Read more

I was staying here as i had a business dinner in the restaurant next door and all hotels were expensive that night due to Man Utd playing. Check in took 10 minutes as they couldn't find my booking from Booking.com. after that the room and hotel were fine and just what you would expect from a fairly new Ibis hotel

The Hotel is clean bright and warm, with pleasant helpful staff...HOWEVER...I came away after ONE night with a badly cricked neck and back pain due to a night spent on the hardest most uncomfortable bed I have ever encountered! I night mentioned to the receptionist next morning that I had passed a most uncomfortable night, not helped by noisy guests coming in late, to be told that the mattresses are "ergonomically designed" so "can't be uncomfortable".

Double Room was a good size, very comfortable, clean and good size desk for working. I thought the team were very welcoming, friendly and responsive. I must single out Irene (I think I have her name right) who went to great trouble to adapt the menu for me to accommodate my Vegan requirements. Exceptional customer service. I do think the Hotel needs to provide Vegan options on the menu though.

I was staying with a friend for a clubbing weekend, when we got back to the room, it was too uncomfortably warm but the air con wouldn't switch the cold on because the outdoor temperature was below 15C (just). So I phoned the reception and within 10 minutes they brought up a desk fan. It helped cool the room down no end and made sleeping much more comfortable.

My room was a little bit smarter than previous visits here. It was clean and tidy and all the staff were friendly. Maintenance seemed better as previous visits revealed odd jobs needing doing in the rooms I have used. If i had a complaint, it would be that there is no mustard available for the cooked breakfast. Shocking considering the sausages and bacon demand mustard. I would use ibis again.

I reviewed this property three months ago... so was precluded from writing the following until now. I stayed at the IBIS Portland Street for a couple of months during the week for work. Basic but acceptable... until... ...one evening I went for a wander through the fire exits and down the stairwells. I'd been given a particularly odd room and they were in the midst of 'refurbishments' so I was used to seeing the various workman. What I did not realise is that the hotel decided to use the stairw... Read more

Really enjoyed a stay here, hotel being converted to Ibis styles format. I got a good price by booking well in advance, typical hotels in Manchester centre can get expensive for what they offer depending on what's on. Interesting decor throughout and it's perfectly located for the city centre and tram access.

£65 a night - bargain ! The double room is on the small side but adequate. It is clean and comfortable. The hotel is slowly being converted into an Ibis and work was ongoing. Only criticisms - only continental breakfast available - so we went to the Wetherspoons down the road, the bar closes at 11pm and the only tea in the room was Earl Grey !

I have stayed at a number of ibis hotels, none of them have been as good as this specific one. The friendly receptionist was informative, happy and knows how to pull a good pint of stout. The room was clearly newly refurbished and faultless. I walked the 10 mins from Manchester Piccadilly train station and I had no trouble locating the hotel. Well done ibis and well done the excellent front of house. Will be coming back. 5/5

In a typical Ibis setting the hotel is a good option in Manchester but only when rates are reasonable. In fact rates can change pretty substantially over the year and sometimes the hotel is definitely over-priced. Situated in an excellent central area in Manchester, its main strength is possibly the breakfast. Rooms are ok but ask to be far away from the noisy lift. Staff is ok but not very friendly.

A man walked into our room while we were in bed, in the early hours of the morning. Somehow he has a keycard which enabled him to unlock the door and walk right in. Although we spoke with reception staff they did not investigate or deal with this appropriately or like it was a serious issue. Offered a free breakfast... missing the point rather!!! We are not happy, we've had no response to my concerns raised on survey sent out via email the day after check out.

The hotel has recently been rebranded by Ibis and it's surprising affordable quirk. The hotel reception is a stand alone desk in a lobby full of upside down white umbrellas. My room was described when i booked it as "small" and it was indeed small. It had a really comfy bed and a desk. Small but still managed to be well equipped with an iron and ironing board and safe. The bathroom was tireder than I would have like but it was fine. The hotel has one restaurant which seemed to be a popular fast ... Read more
