Blue Rainbow Aparthotel - Manchester Central

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The apart-hotel was very quiet, we saw very few other guests. The accommodations are very modern, spotless, fun decor, very well equipped kitchen. The only problem was that it was a really windy night and the rooms were warm, so when we opened the windows there was a lot of rattling and banging doors. We would stay there again - our young adult children loved it!

We stopped in Manchester on a driving tour of the U.K. with little exceptions and we were pleasantly surprised by a very modern walkable city with fantastic architecture, restaurants and nightlife. The Blue Rainbow is a 2 minute walk to downtown but a bit hard to find when you first get there nestled within a luxury condominium community. Great staff a full kitchen and very clean, don;t pass up the chance to stay here if you are headed to Manchester.

The apartment was really great - good sized rooms with space between. Smaller room was right on the hallway so it was a bit noisy. Master was good sized with a nice bath attached. Kitchen was well stocked but the freezer was filthy. The walls could have used a fresh coat of paint. No restaurants nearby and none that delivered to the hotel. Nearest grocery was about a mile away. As there are residential apartments interspersed with the hotel apartments - you may have problems with noise that the hotel really can't do anything about! I would return though as the amenities are just perfect for a family. Unless you have a car it's about a $10 to $15 cab ride to the city center.

Excellent base for our trip back to the UK. Everything we needed. Breakfast basket was a bonus. Room just cleaned once for weekly stays - would have been usful if this had been midweek rather than the day before we came home.
