We stayed for my husband's birthday & had a lovely time looking around the Christmas Markets. The evening was finished off nicely by a drink in the pub downstairs. The breakfast was delicious! My husband is a big fan of a traditional fry up & said it was honestly the best he'd ever had! I had the french toast with peanut butter, blueberries & banana which looked & tasted amazing too. We will definitely be returning to the hotel & the pub.
It was a great stay for me over a weekday even tho it was a bit loud until 2 am but nothing you wouldn't struggle to sleep though. I guess I wouldn't recommend it for weekend stay. I can see how it would be too noisy
Although late check out ended at 8. We were able to still get our room. The gentlemen was extremely nice and understood our delay. He gave us tips on food and what to check out. The rooms were spacious and everything was clean. There is protection in the front, by simply providing your password. It makes sure that only guest come in. Plenty of restaurants and a shopping mall and a movie theater. Only minor thing was wifi, but for the trip we received, didn't really matter every where we went wifi was available, even on the free buses! !!

The hotel is very nice, with modern design which I loved, the rooms were clean. The location was terrific - in the city center, within walking distance from all the main attractions, rail station, shopping area, and many eating places. The breakfast in addition to the usually served food, had vegetables and fruits.

The hotel was in a good area for the Christmas markets and shopping. Unfortunately the hotel has no parking and there were people living on the street around the hotel, tents were scattered about anywhere they could put them. This was a bit off putting as you can see them when you had breakfast. The beds were a bit small for us and you could feel the springs in the cheap mattress. This was our first visit to Manchester and won't be our last, the hotel just needs to sort its mattress's out.
I was in Manchester for a long weekend to see friends, I didn't know the area so booked the hotel because of its location.
It's in the middle of so much. I found my way around quickly, the hostel is near to the train st and a few bus stops.
The room was small, but that's what I expected. It helps to keep people out of their rooms and in the social spaces.
The toilet / shower facilities were good, breakfast was simple but provided me with what I wanted so that's another plus!
Staff were very friendly and happy to answer any question.
A great place to stay!
