My apartment at this aparthotel was a dream. I was upgraded by Carol the duty manager to the best apartment I have ever stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble, the facilities could not have been better and the location was a 2 minute walk from transport links and theatres in the centre of Manchester. This is a hidden gem and i urge you to try it. My thanks again to a wonderful duty manager who made my stay perfect.

We were a group of 8 girls, staying in two apartments, who had came to Manchester for the Christmas Markets, Christmas shopping, festive drinks, & to catch up with friends that lived near by. The apartments were perfect for us. Having read other reviews with such mixed reviews we were all wondering what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Both of our apartments were well equipped, well maintained, spotlessly clean, with cosy bedding, body shop toiletries supplied in the bathroom, & nice large guest towels. The staff were all really friendly, & helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We were on the second floor facing the Bird cage night club, & whilst we did hear noise at kicking out time, but really if you stay in accommodation that is opposite a night club, in the centre of town, what do you expect?! My advice would be to have a few more drinks, so you sleep through it! ;-) The location of these apartments is fantastic, right near to the shops, bars, restaurants, & the Arndale Centre.
We normally stay in apartments in Manchester as we bring our family along. And this is about our 5th visit but our first at this location.
The apartments are nice and designer like but ok in quality - we stayed for 3 nights for around 300 quid - had we wanted luxury that number will be ten times higher.
About the noise - you are walking distance - and I mean a 2 minute radius - of around 20 bars. Yes its noisy - not loud music just revellers on the street. Not an issue for any of us.
The good things - you are across the road from the Arndale shopping centre, around the corner from the Northern Quarter - which has the best restaurants, across the road from the PrintWorks - not our cup of tea but people like that thing, and the Shudehill tram is right out the back should you plan on going anywhere thats out a bit - I believe they are extending it to the Trafford Centre at the moment.
All in all we will be back - it was safe, comfortable, cheap and right in the middle of things.

Went to Manchester to see the Eagles, we have never stopped overnight in Manchester, so we wanted to make sure we had a good place to stay. We wanted a hotel which was situated between Piccadilly Railway station and the Phones for U arena, and this hotel was ideally situated.
