I booked this hotel because it was a cheap couple of nights away for work. I read all the reviews and didn’t have very high hopes for it. I booked a single with no window room and on checking in was asked if it was smoking or non smoking, I ended up with a double room with no window. It was very clean and warm. There was plenty of space and there was extra pillows in the wardrobe. There was everything you would need for a couple of nights (hairdryers, towels, an extra blanket - although the heat was easy to work) . The people I spoke to at reception were very friendly and helpful. I paid for the pool but didn’t get a chance to use it so can’t comment on that. In general the decor is very outdated but the cleanliness made up for that. For £30 a night, I really don’t think you need any more. I’d definitely stay again.
It was ok for £35 a night, but disappointed you have to pay £4 to use gym & pool. There is no notice about this anywhere in the website unless it’s hidden in small print which I myself couldn’t find after s good look around. In the end the sauna wasn’t working and it opens late on Sundays close to check out time. Room was outdated and toilet flush stiff.
Booked for £127 for an 'Executive' Twin room so expected more than a room that made a Travelodge look a bit posh. Take no notice of the photos on the website. Position is close to Northern Quarter and lots of restaurants/bars but the room was right next to the adjacent building site and had very no soundproofing on the windows. Heard generators all night plus all the shouting and singing of people on a night out from 2-4 AM. Bathroom was fine and the room was clean (apart from area around the windows) but the TV didn't work (managed to watch BBC1 / BBC2 with a bit of flickering and there was no remote control. I have stayed in worse but not for £127 a night!
I Visited this hotel while Attending A match In Old Trafford And a Concert in The Manchester Arena,The Location was Perfect for Both,The Hotel is Located about 50 Yards from Market Street Beside The Arndale Center,So all aminites are very Close,There is a Metro Stop at the end of the Street with Connections to Old Trafford,Airoprt etc,The Hotel is a Little Dated but Staff were very Friendly and the Room Was Spacious And Comfortable,There is a Homeless Problem in Manchester and a Lot of Rough Sleepers Stay Across the Road from the Entrance,It didn't bother me however some people may find it Intimidating.The only small Negitive was The Service in the Bar was Very Slow,
Having read the reviews of this hotel I was worried about staying there over Christmas. It was a great relief to have a clean room, with a good comfortable bed and a good bathroom. There had been mention, in reviews, of rooms without windows - again - it was a relief to have large window looking out to the street. The staff worked really hard to make everything good for their guests, They were friendly, helpful, enthusiastic and patient. The food was good and plentiful.
Paid extra for ground floor but put on 5th floor. Room ok apart from the very strong smell of tabaco. TV worked but the remote didn't. Ordered 2 pizzas for my partner and I. Found what looked like half a cockroach in my ham and pineapple pizza the chef said it was a mushroom (which shouldn't have been on the pizza) but he would not eat said mushroom he said I could have the price of the pizza taken off the bill and asked us if we wanted new pizzas made. We declined paid the bill to a very disgruntled waitress who could not understand what our problem was. Never again will I stay there.
Stayed there this weekend some staff were excellent great bar breakfast buffet dinner restaurant it has a leisure club is cheap and cheerful 4 pound a day gym sauna steam room hotub and pool .But beware room was GRUBBY carpet dirty walls dirty smell of cigarette smoke only service to room was bins emptied and fresh towels on request bed not changed /location could not be better right at Piccadilly

Stayed here in december and on my arrival we were given a room which stunk of marijuana and damp. I returned down to reception where we were changed rooms no problem. So me and my partner dropped our bags in the room and went out and had a nice meal. (Not before closing the windows as both windows were left wide open and the room was freezing) Upon our return we began to discover the uncleanliness of the room. A huge handprint on the wall in grease, stained carpets hairs in the bed marks on all walls. The bed was so uncomfortable we barely slept. On the morning we went to have a shower and i have no words for how dirty the shower head was i have attached a photo! There were stains in the bed of dark red/brown which i have also attached a photo of. The whole experience was just not nice i spoke to the manager jimmy who was very understanding and gave us 10% back and said to contact an email address to see about some sort of compensation. As personally 10% refund is just a joke but understandably he explained thats all he was authorised to give and gave me an email address to See if this situation could be resolved and still 4 weeks on from 2 emails from myself i have yet to have a reply. I really wasn't happy with my stay at all considering i booked this for a night away for my partners birthday it was just a shambles they cleanliness is a -10 and the whole place is in dire need of updating. Any word back would be nice !!!!!
I usually check reviews before I book but the more bargain-priced hotels were being snatched up quickly plus I spotted that this hotel also has a pool so I just booked without checking first. Then I checked the pictures the hotel site uses and I was so pleased and only then did I checked the reviews and my heart sunk. I just as quickly tried to unbook it and just find another hotel further out of the center of Manchester if I needed to but I'd used a new booking side called Amoma and I don't know if it's their or the hotels policy but even though I'd literally just booked it I would have been charged £40 to cancel or even change the booking which quite frankly is shocking. So in the end and especially since we were going for just 1 night and we would be out for most of the time I decided to just put up with it and if the room was horrible then put my foot down to be move but we in for a pleasant surprise. The bedroom just like the whole hotel is showing it's age. Lots of wear and tear, one of my pictures is of the counter in the bathroom and you can see there is a lot of water damage, there was a couple of scuff marks on the wall and the TV turned on and that was about all it would do, BUT the most important thing was the bed and bedding smelled fine and looked clean, the bath and even the counter as rough as it looked were also clean. So we did sleep in a clean bed and were able to shower in comfort and that really is the most important thing to us. One of the other things that made me book without checking the reviews is the fact that this hotel has a pool so we even packed our bathing suits. We did pop down to check it out and there is a nice sized gym as well but, and I was pretty sure the use of the pool was free for hotel guests but the young man said no but at £4 it wasn't unreasonable. We couldn't put our head in to see what it looked like and in the end, because we spent so much time out at the Christmas Market we didn't get to see or use it but it looked as though it's a standard hotel pool size and people were using it. The biggest win was the excellent breakfast! Again because of the reviews we were just going to eat out, even though breakfast was included in our stay, but we decided to check it out and it was so much better than we had expected.. I can't remember the exact time it's open but it was something like 8-10am so pretty reasonable and we got there for about 9ish. Have they the original "breakfast bar"? and it was fully loaded with bacon, eggs, sausage, fried bread, mushrooms, cereal, toast(you make that yourself), fruit, lots of coffee and juice etc and it all looked freshly cooked and plentiful with staff replenishing the milk and juices often. We were so pleased and although we don't normally indulge in a full English it was so nice and the atmosphere was much more relaxing than a lot of places we had a lovely indulgent leisurely breakfast which it made a really lovely end to our mini Christmas break. I know that a lot of people have said that have issues with breakfast but the rule in all hotels seems to be the later you turn up the less there is but most places will cook items for you fresh as long as you within the breakfast time. The location is also perfect. We caught the train to Manchester and the tram line is just in the same station that the train pulls in and we just got off the train and onto the Tram to the Picalilly stop and the hotel is 5 mins away and so easy to find. I would definitely book again because although I do see what others have complained about for me it turned out to be a most pleasant stay and I only wish we had booked 2 nights and not just the 1 as the Christmas market is also amazing.
