Great place to stay excellent wifi and comfy bed.great location maybe next time choose a room not on the front because of the traffic noise but overall very clean and happy with my stay.sometimes you cannot avoid noise especially in a centre like manchester which is very busy anyway.

We stayed here for the night on Saturday as we were going to a concert in the City. As i use Tripadvisor all the time I think it is only right to be very honest. We arrived to check in at 3.30pm and were told our room was not ready, after travelling for 5 hours from the South we just... More

It was supposed to be a birthday treat for my wife, a relaxing night away from the kids. We were awoken at 2am by screaming and car horns from the street below, which went on until past 5am. I've stayed in hotels in Times Square NY, and most major cities in Europe and this is the noisiest I have encountered.... More

We stayed for 10 nights and right from the start until we left we were very well looked after. The staff were excellent with what seemed in the bar/dinning room area being entertained by friends not staff. Yes people are noisy outside but the hotel is right in the middle of a big city. Our room was for handicapped which... More

I, and colleagues, stay frequently but price variations are annoying. Good location, well appointed and friendly staff are key attributes. Lower floor rooms can suffer from traffic noise or early morning empty bottle collections.

The room 505 had a dirty carpet with stains and a very dirty window. It also has quite a lot of background "white" noise. My breakfast experience was bad because I needed to have breakfast in 15 minutes and I couldn't get a proper cooked breakfast in that space of time. Staff were very pleasant at all times. The decoration... More

Stayed here with my husband for my birthday weekend. We were in room 407, was greeted with a lovely birthday message in chocolate with brownies and Scottish tablet! The room was immaculate and although a bit chilly, the heating switch soon fixed that. Loved the big waterfall shower and the bath filled up incredibly quick when it was ran. Having... More

We stayed in a classic double room, which wasn't that big but still managed to have a small table by the window with two chairs and another armchair on the other side of the room. The room was well decorated and clean and nicely warm. The bed was a good size and very comfy and there were extra pillows in... More

Stayed here recently (Chinese new year) for 1 night. First impressions of hotel is lovely. Ideal central location, clean and contemporary design throughout the hotel, friendly staff. Didn't try the bar or restaurant as the hotel is located amongst plenty of eateries and bars. Central to China town and just 5 mins walk from the shopping streets. Room was clean... More
