Love this cute little find. Good size two bedroom apartment. Very clean. Very quite considering how central the location is. Friendly staff. Perfect for those who want to shop til they drop. Reasonable prices. Will definitely stop here next time i do my xmas shopping.

I stayed here with my brother and his partner and were were shocked to find the following issues in the room. - Blown bulbs in the light fittings - Smoke detector hanging off the ceiling - Ripped wallpaper on the living room wall - Paint peeling off around the toilet and sink - The bath-side panel was in a very...

This place looks fine on the surface and a few years ago probably was fine but it is now in need of some major attention! I've no idea who is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the hotel but they are clearly not doing their job!! Dirty walls with paint chipping off, dodgey light fittings that don't work, cutlery... More

This place is far from five stars. We were greeted by a receptionist in an ill-fitting suit who seemed to be deficient in English. We were told we could not pay by American Express despite it clearly stating on the website that it was accepted. We were not personally shown to the apartment, which has some serious maintenance issues; paint... More

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
