clean and good value, not much else. I would recommend for a short stay perhaps with kids, close to the city centre and easy to find, parking is available near by but is very expensive. I would recommend this place and I hope to return soon

The location is very good. It's close to Piccadilly Station and right in the City Centre. All the shops, restaurants and bars are walking distance. When we stayed here, the lifts were broke. Maybe they've been fixed. If not - then they probably never will be. We were on the top floor. Nice view but a pain in the feet... More

Considering this place was about half the price of nearby hotels, I wasn't expecting to be in the lap of luxury. Starting with the good, the location just walking distance from Piccadilly station is very convenient. The security on the building is a bit elaborate with door codes to get in the front door, codes to get from the lobby... More

Stayed one night, customer service was great when there was no hot water in our apartment we were quickly moved to another! However the apartments are not well maintained and were over priced for what they were. Only positive was the location close to the station. Would not recommend staying here.

For a 4* accommodation I have to say I was somewhat disappointed. I can tell that the property once was well kitted out; however that was some time ago. Sadly the property is looking tired and care is not being taken. If anything corners are being cut. The light bulbs were all different throughout. The floor slacks were loose. The... More

Stayed there for one night. Location was excellent but the property was not well maintained. There were stains in the carpet everywhere inside the room and the hallway. Kitchen facility was dated and the Jacuzzi was out of services. Will try Premier Inn or the Place Aparthotel next time.

I stayed in a three bedroom apartment for two nights and it worked out £60 per couple per night, which is pretty cheap for Manchester. The price and the central location mean it's really good if you're going to be out enjoying yourself most of the time. The apartment was clean, the decor was tired (peeling paint, stained carpet, bathroom... More

Stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend and another couple. It was a perfect location - great for the northern quarter and main shopping area and also a minute away from Piccadilly tram station. The apartment was very well furnished and modern - the shower in the ensuite was amazing! I found it to be clean with just a... More

I had little option but to stay again twice more at Max, even though I vowed I wouldnt. Thought I'd give them another chance. However, it didn't improve... When I left last Tuesday, I had to leave a note of all the issues... The shower hose was loose from the head, squirting water everywhere and wouldn't stay in the holder.... More

This place is something out of the serios Apartments from Hell The amazing Lift which has the same style and voice floor announcements from the DHSS in Stockport was a great start. Then you go up the dimly lit corridor, which is stained and dirty and with the addition of blood stains outside the door was something to behold!! and... More
