Stayed here a few times now. Rooms spotlessly clean. Very handy for Piccadilly Station (3 mins walk) and Uni of Manchester (15-20 mins walk). Nice choice at breakfast even for vegetarian/vegan. Some of the public areas are a bit worn-looking (e.g. carpets) but they seem to be upgrading generally. I'll definitely return.

The good points about my stay were that all the staff were very friendly and obliging. The room is small but you get what you pay for! It was clean and the shower was very good, large stall and excellent water pressure. My only complaint is that it felt like I heard everyone go to bed, and have a shower... More

One of the cheapest single rooms around Manchester Picadilly. It's about a 5-10 minutes walk, pretty easy to find. They are very small rooms, but well layed out so perfectly adequate for a stopover. Definitely not a destination to enjoy though. Staff were helpful and friendly and I would stay there again if I wanted a cheap and simple night.

The room was clean, a lovely large shower and well equipped with lots of information about what to do in and around Manchester. We had a bar meal which... More

Me and my partner stay in this hotel and we both thought it was really great close to the city center Manchester Piccadilly train station only thing that it let it down was the room side and if you don't like sleeping near the wall you should let a member of staff know the staff was really friendly and couldn't...

Lots of positive things I could say about this central Manchester hotel. The best is how friendly, helpful and human the receptionist was throughout. Delightful. My double room was comfortable and clean (though there was much noise from thoughtless guests in adjoining rooms), location is good and the place has personality. However, as a vegetarian I felt badly let down.... More

the check in was easy and the reception was clean and tidy, the double room was small and the bed was against the wall which meant who ever slept on the other side had to get out to let the other out. Had a meal in the restaurant which wasn't all that special although Thomas who looked after us was... More
