Perfect location for exploring the City

Posted 19-Sep-2016
Pros: Breakfast was excellent, staff were magnificent and the bar was really clean and well stocked.
Cons: Room was a little small
Location: Perfect location to explore the city centre, loads of Bars, restaurants on your doorstep. China town is outside the entrance to the hotel
Really easy to find as signage is good, I called and asked if the hotel had parking which although they didn't they did have subsidised parking close by and explained everything over the phone in a great manner. Upon arrival the hotel was welcoming and clean, staff were knowledgeable and we didn't feel rushed at checking in like other hotels. Staff were professional and courteous and made the stay really pleasing. Room was clean but a little small with god rooftop views of the City.

Nice hotel

Posted 29-Aug-2016
Good location for us as we were visiting for pride weekend, our room was on the 6th floor good view over the city, very clean room only downside was the mattress dipped in the middle so you felt like you were leaning to one side, overall we would stay here again

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.

Posted 24-Jul-2016
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.
