Central to the city centre

Posted 26-Aug-2016
Pros: Very clean and central
Cons: Signs to our room were a little confusing
Location: Short walk to the city centre. We went to a concert at the arena and it was only a 15 minute walk. Short walk to the train station.
Very clean hotel with good facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful. Short walk to the city centre and Manchester Arena. I would definitely stay again.

DOESN'T LIVE UP TO ITS STAR RATING

Posted 18-Aug-2016
Pros: the bed
Cons: Breakfast, the whole décor in that room and the bar
Location: Location pretty handy for the centre of Manchester
Room was generally fine, bed comfortable, though clothing storage limited and the bathroom a little worse for wear. Staff helpful, the basement bar design soulless and some colours/ other choices naff/ bizarre. Breakfast was very disappointing; the area as depressing as the bar, the waitresses were very nice but without exaggeration the worst scrambled egg I have ever had - a large dome shape that tasted of nothing and had a texture approaching the inside of a golf ball, and the whole plate swimming in half a centimetre of fat- I had to ask for another plate. And because it was quiet cooked to order rather than in the heated buffet water bath! The Continental selection looked poor quality. And if I wanted an espresso coffee another £2.70; or instead filter coffee in a crude metal pot that wouldn't look out of place in a greasy spoon- which was the sort of breakfast it was.

Very well located hotel

Posted 09-Aug-2016
Pros: Although it's in an older building, the Arora has managed to provide clean, updated suites, with all the modern amentities you would require.
Location: The hotel is centrally located and is within walking distance to many restaurants, shopping, museums, etc.
We used the Arora hotel as our jumping off point for our UK holiday. Due to it's location it was perfect for easy access for airport and rail station. After our 21 day UK tour, what a welcoming experience to come back to a bright, spacious, modern and clean suite.

Excellent location in the city.

Hotel is ideal for visiting Manchester. Most places can be reached on foot within minutes. Also great bus/tram system. It was an extremely hot weekend, the air conditioning was working but it's very noisy. I would use the hotel again.

Hotel moderno y con excelente servicio al cliente.

Posted 22-Jul-2016
Cons: El restaurante necesita un poco más de vida. Quizá buenas ofertas a los huéspedes.
Es la segunda vez que estoy en este hotel y en ambas ocasiones me ha gustado mucho. La relación calidad-precio es muy buena. Está cerca de city centre y a unos 20 minutos de la estación de tren caminando.

Booked this hotel after fairly extensive research gave a positive indication. However, after checking in (no earlier than 3pm as is 'law') we were presented with a room on ground level that seemed to have missed the final tidy of the cleaning cycle. The bed, bathroom were clean, but we've stayed in cheaper rooms of better standard. In fact, my friend stayed at the holiday Inn and the room was of a better calibre. The pillows here could be better and the coffee pods should be the original nespresso ones so they may be recycled. All in all, not particularly impressed.

Dear Guest Thankyou for Staying with us at Arora Manchester, so sorry to hear that the hotel did not met with your expectations of us I can only apologise for this. The bedding in the hotel is all less then 2 months old and we are currently looking at a extensive refurb towards the end of 2016 for the improvement of the hotel for our guests we do provide Nespresso but on a survey from our guests they pefer the other brand and seem to be enjoying them more we also are recycling everything as part of Green tourism which we fully support Hope this will make you decide to come back to stay again at Arora Kind Regards Jacklyn Glover Housekeeping Manager
