Great hotel in/near Chinatown.

Posted 13-Mar-2017
A wonderful first stay at the Arora. Sean in particular went above and beyond to help (as I've seen being said in other reviews, too.) There's ongoing work being done in the lobby(?) but I didn't see or hear anything during the stay. The room was large, clean, and had everything you'd want. The room service was also really nice. There was some slight external noise, and also a bit from a hen do (I think) that was staying at the hotel, but both of these were beyond control of the hotel. If you want to stay in Manchester I'd highly recommend this hotel, and I'll be returning in the future.

Great location, friendly staff.

Posted 08-Mar-2017
Pros: Location and friendly staff.
Cons: The decor in the rooms was a little dated but very clean and functional.
This was my first time in Manchester. The hotel location is close to St Peters square, walkable or a short metro ride to all of the local attractions. The staff were very friendly. I arrived at 10am and my room was ready so they let me check in early (after a long red eye flight this was much appreciated). The lobby is currently under renovation (march 2017) but this was not too big of a deal. The fitness room is small (looks like a converted hotel room) but had 2 treadmills, an elliptical, a TV, a stationary bike, and some free weights.

Overnight stay in Manchester

Posted 26-Feb-2017
Hotel entrance being altered during our stay but we were put in a fifth floor room because of it so no issues. All of the staff were very helpful and polite. Bed was so comfortable and the room temperature was easy to set. Will definitely book again and would recommend. The breakfast was a full selection even as we were one of the last down. I'd also recommend a cocktail in the bar.
