This was our 2nd stay in this hotel. It is great value mid week and is perfectly located for transport shopping night life etc. single rooms are small and basic but perfectly adequate and have kettle tea coffee fans on request , hair dryer and even iron and ironing board. Nice and quiet on our mid week stay. Couldn't fault it for the money paid £35 single room)

weekend getaway

After reading all the reviews about this hotel I was expecting it to be really awful, but I was surprised! The hotel was in a great location for my needs. Right in the city centre close to everything. The hotel itself was nice and once again what I needed. I had booked a single room but I was given a twin room which was a nice surprise. The room was equipped with a kettle and teas and coffees, tv with free view and there is wifi in the hotel room too. I didn't have any meals there so can't comment on that. But overall enjoyed my stay and would go back again.

Perfect for short stay! Perfect location

I went to Manchester for a short stay and the location was perfect. Didn't really know what to expect when looking at the hotel from the outside but I was really surprised by this hotel. The location is perfect. Staff super friendly. The room was spacious and clean- perfect for a short stay! Highly recommend this hotel!

Central Hotchpotch

Superbly located in the heart of the city this hotel is a hit and miss conversion of old buildings. My room was awkwardly shaped with ill fitting furniture and curtains. Comfortable enough but someone needed to think things through better and pay some attention to detail. Reasonable value for money but not great.

Not bad and close to the station.

10 min walk from Piccadilly train station and the same for the main shopping area. Do not agree to take rooms on the 5th floor - no windows, roof light only that does not open, gloomy and stuffy.Hint: Tesco and a 24 hour shop almost nest door. Tea/coffee in the room. Far from the football stadium though.

Perfect value for money

The hotel is in the absolute centre of the city and it's not too expensive considering the location. Close by are Picadilly train station, coach station, trams to Old Trafford, O2 Apollo is some 15 minutes walk. I arrived at 11 am and could check in early. The room was nice with a kettle, bed very comfy. You really don't need more for a few days!

Yeah, good cheap accomm. Exactly what it said on the tin and what you'd expect for the price. For what I paid I am more than satisfied. Really handy location and if you're going by train it couldn't be more convenient. Cool staff. Clean room. Hot showers. Gruntled!
