I really enjoyed my extended stay here. The location is fantastic, the room was fantastic (I was fortunate to be upgraded) & the staff were lovely. The only "issue" was noise from other guests as it seems to market towards hen parties & groups of lads in Manchester to party - but it really wasn't a huge problem (it was limited to the weekend only).

Was very pleasantly surprised as was worried owing to some reviews, but hotel room was fine and accommodated 2 adults & 2 kids well, & slightly out dated decor just made me feel more comfortable to take kids there! Was warm & beds comfy & had good nights sleep.
"Very handy location but disappointed with bathroom"
When we arrived we were told we would have to pay for the apartment in cash before going to the room. I had not been informed of this fact in any communication received from Expedia or the apartment directly. We expressed reservations in paying before even seeing the room especially by cash so the receptionist did not push the matter, was polite and let us carry on to the apartment. We paid later on in the day. Our apartment number was 601.
The apartment it self was quite pleasant but not quite as 'luxury' as advertised. The main disappointment was the bathroom. There was mould on the floor area next to the bath and on the sealant around the tiles. The tiles were coming away from the bath edge and there were cracks in the tiles behind toilet area. It smelt very musty in the bathroom.
The bedrooms were a nice size and the beds were comfortable.
The apartment is in a very busy area and very close to some nightclubs. Very handy if you are using those places but be aware it was very noisy even with the thick double glazing and balcony doors shut. We had to wear ear plugs.
For what we paid per night we cannot complain but I felt the apartment was different to the description given.
Apartment 15 in 2nd floor for two people. Generally great but a bit noisy at night as is just in front of The Printworks. Superb location walking distance of amenities and besides tram and train stations. We would go back no doubt.
Victoria Buildings is located in the heart of the city centre opposite the Printworks and the birdcage and adjacent the …More
