Stayed there for four nights with three other adults and a baby and we all felt very comfortable. Spacious apartment, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, nice living room, kitchen, and balcony. Location was the best (heart of piccadelly gardens), staff was very nice and super helpful. I travel to manchester a lot and have stayed in many other hotels but this is the best, a bit pricey but worth the comfort.

Meeting friends for reunion. Staff helpful in advising of local places of interest. Hotel breakfast excellent. Dinner very average. Not particularly good value but local restaurants in The Printworks offered good variety.

I thought this apartment was excellent and probably better than others I've stayed at in Manchester. For those into shopping you couldn't get closer to the Arndale - right opposite on of the entrances. Since the Arndale is in the City Centre there are loads of bars and restaurants nearby. Parking is very easy right opposite in the Arndale and reasonable for an overnight stay (24h actually). As others have mentioned it isn't easy to see, being a single door and a silver plaque, so make sure you look on Google maps before you go to be sure about getting there without getting lost in the one-way system! Room was clean, large and very pleasant. Reception closes in the evening but it's very easy to phone the number and you can pick up a key from a key-press in the lobby. Simple and straightforward. Recommended.
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.

Ideal location expensive to park as where hotel is located. Very friendly staff but trying to contact reception for half hour via phone in room no answer at all had to phone restraint to ask.
When I tried to order food which is apparently served24 hours I wanted to call at 21:30 as shut off hot food 22:00 but simply just took phone off hook so constantly engaged never mind they lost out on additional money.
The bar area polite friendly staff cheap happy hour on,y 1.85 a pint. Room not bad dated but when I only paid £35 cannot complain parking directly opposite hotel £15. They do have a car park that they recommend you use at cost £8 but it's a 10 min walk which seems very strange being so far away.
