A great alternative to a city centre hotel. We had a 2 bed room and both rooms were spacious. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the crockery and cutlery you could possibly need - they even remembered the corkscrew! The location was excellent. Perfect for a night out in Manchester and comfortable enough that you'd be happy to... More

3 of us were going to the Arena and it was cheaper to rent a two bedroom apartment than two normal hotel rooms. Tea and coffee in the room plus a full kitchen. The bathroom in room 415 was a bit tired around the joints, but other than that it was well presented and furnished. We booked the deansgate hotel... More

Stayed for one night recently and thought this was the perfect spot. 2 minute walk from several car parks, great cafe next door, 1 minute to Coop and Arndale centre, hard to be any more central. It was also only a 10 minute walk to the Phones4U arena we were at in the evening. Really lovely receptionist put our bags... More

Reading the reviews on here I am shocked! Me and my friends stayed here for a birthday weekend and we absolutely loved it! In the middle of manchester with a co/op just around the corner so it's a good location! Our apartment was spacious, spotless and really well decorated! The bedrooms were nice and warm with fresh smelling blankets and... More

Stayed at the Blue Rainbow many times at both the High St & the one in Castlefield. If you can get one of the deals, (50% off) it's not bad value compared to other places but the lack of maintenance here is really starting to show now. We arrived at 3.15pm & stood outside ringing the bell for a while... More

I booked Blue Rainbow on High Street by mistake for two couples in one apartment. Management was helpful & let me alter booking to use sofa bed as apartment has a double bed in one room & single in other room. We managed over a weekend but would've been cramped for a weeks stay & sofa bed not really comfortable... More

The apartment was in fairly good condition and clean, some lights (bedside table etc.) did not work. The double bed was rather small, my feet were sticking out at the end (I am 6"3 or 1,90m). The hotel is far away from 5 stars, but generally it is decent, clean and very conveniently located in the northern quarter of Manchester.... More

I have now stayed at the Blue Rainbow High Street twice & I loved both stays! On both occasions I booked the 2 bedroom saver apartment. The first time I stayed with my Mum & Sister for a girls weekend away & a concert in the MEN arena. We travelled into Piccadilly station & the apartments were an easy 10... More

Too many problems to list whilst staying here. Apartment is mediocre, definitely not 5* or even 3* at that. Customer service is terrible, I have travelled a lot and this is the worst I have experienced in any hotel/apartment anywhere. Better off staying in a hotel where you know good customer service is a basic requirement and any problems will... More

I've not tried an Aparthotel before and was a bit unsure what to expect. My initial impression of the 2 bedroom apartment was quite positive; lots of space in decent sized rooms, modern furnishings and bathroom fittings. Over the next few hours though, we kept on finding things that were wrong or broken and our opinion changed somewhat. For example,... More
