Excellent location, surprisingly quiet

Posted 09-Feb-2016
Pros: Such a beautiful grand staircase system. Thinking we should have explored this whilst we were there. Maybe the next time!
Cons: Perhaps a fan for the rooms with no windows?
Location: Great location to the trams and buses. Close to the coach station. Visited the National Football museum and the print works.
We needed a hotel in the middle of Manchester and Britannia definitely suited our needs and price range. Taking an Expedia room with no window seemed like a good idea. It did prove itself as there was zero traffic noise (considering we were overlooking the tram central station as a huge bonus). The room did feel a little stuffy, but wondered if that was more in the mind than actual as we were not used to a room with no window. But overall we had an excellent stay. Bring an alarm clock, as when waking up one has no idea of the time!!!

Better than expected!

Posted 08-Feb-2016
Cons: The staff in the breakfast room perhaps need to be reminded to replenish the food a little bit more often.
Location: Very well placed for pubs, clubs, bars, rail and metrolink.
After reading some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive regarding this hotel...but no need to be it was excellent. Yes, it is dated but that is the nature of the building! Excellent check in very helpful and polite staff, good room, tea and coffee making facilities, decent bathroom, very comfy beds and clean bedding. Ironing room available if you need it. Breakfast was buffet style a little bit of a let down, food was not hot and had to wait for food to be replenished. I will definitely stay here again!

an elegant hotel

Posted 29-Jan-2016
Pros: very comfortable inside the room. clean and quiet.
Cons: the elevator is always in slow motion. just in hurry, people prefer to walk stairs instead.
in the town centre, very convenient from train station to hotel even by walking. bus station to Old Trafford is just outside the hotel. The bad thing is road works outside.

Great location

Posted 25-Jan-2016
Pros: I liked the Ambience.
Cons: Ventilation in rooms with no windows, to give a feeling of openness.
Location: Plenty to do Including Bridge water Hall, Shopping and Restaurants good food only bad deal are the Car parking fees like any other major city.
as always this hotel is located perfect to get rid of car and walk to wherever you want to go, Excellent position for a stroll to the Bridge water Hall, To food, Shops and the multiple venues in the City. I stay here any chance i get and as i said so good to get out of the car and not need it again until leaving. There is only one complaint and nothing to do with Hotel but the Car park locally for overnight is a little over priced to encourage people to stay in town. £15.50 for outdoor car park Monday to Friday liked the Ambience.riday Saturday/Sunday ok £3.50.

Great location hotel

Posted 19-Jan-2016
We stayed 6 nights after having to change our previous booking we had made elsewhere. The main entrance was magnificent. Elevators a bit small and slow. Staff very helpful and kind. Not possible to make phone calls and room in need of a bit of an update on some aspects. This being said we found our little room quite cozy and had a nice stay at the Britannia. Downtown close to everything. The price is right for the hotel also compared to other hotels in the area. There's a bus stop just a few meters away and can take you to the airport any time of day or night.

Pros: La faacciata
Cons: Tutto dai servizi igienici vecchio stile all'accoglienza
Location: E molto centrale
L'albergo è enorme. La stanza bisogna cercarla nei vari corridoi senza alcun aiuto. All'inizio mi è stata offerta una camera senza finestre. Le camere sono molto piccole
