This hotel is wonderfully located near the Manchester town hall, tram and shopping areas. Plenty of history and architecture within walking distance and just next to Chinatown. Check in was quite swift and the room very comfortable. Check out was just as easy and the staff very friendly. Recommend staying here if you are going to Manchester.

Not very impressive from the outside, but improves markedly past the entrance hall.. Large rooms, very comfortable and clean. Friendly and willing staff; excellent bar and competent cuisine. Good location for everywhere in the centre of Manchester and decent value given its location. Parking offsite but quite close by.

2nd time staying at the Arora Hotel Manchester and the same high standard as before. I can not fault this hotel at all the staff were friendly and efficient and could not do enough for us.

Booked as a last minute trip prior to visiting the Trafford Centre at an excellent rate. Hotel is well located on Princess Street, adjacent to China town, with numerous restaurants and bars nearby. Room on the ground floor which was roomy and we'll presented. Staff very helpful providing recommendations on local places to eat. No car parking at the hotel... More

Loved staying at this hotel. Very friendly staff. Big rooms and bathrooms with a well thought through layout. Extensive breakfast. Great location for getting anywhere on foot within the city centre. Best cocktails in the city, with a deal if you are staying at the hotel which gives amazing savings!

I have stayed at the Arora Manchester one or twice a month for over 18 months. It is a good city centre hotel with a handy gym - albeit small. Centrally located and very comfortable. Bar is quirky and reasonably priced. 2 mins walk from china town and some excellent Thai and chinese restaruants - also some a good indian... More

Stayed here regularly for past 5 years when in Manchester on business. Good rooms, good staff, beds are getting really soft and slightly uncomfortable. Excellent bar, good breakfast. Shame the most important thing a decent nights sleep is effected by lack of investment in beds. Wouldntrushback.

The rooms feature itself average standard, but hygiene and sleep comfort is very good. Large spacious bathrooms and free wifi with good speed. Hairdryer is strangely enough fixed in the bedroom and not the bathroom, but it's not a big issue. Breakfast choice is typically English / continental, and of good quality. Also nice staff. The best thing however,is the... More

Good location and nice rooms. Car parking quite expensive because you have to park at the near car park. They offer a discount if you're at the hotel so 24 hrs cost £16. Rooms spacious. Tea and coffee in the room but no biscuits :( Breakfast was good.
