We stayed here when we went to Manchester for a family wedding this August and I have to say it was excellent and I was more than impressed. The apartments are spacious and comfortable with all mod cons. The beds were comfortable and with the addition of an on suit bathroom in the main bedroom made life so much easier... More

We booked a double apartment as going into town with friends for a show. Good location is about the only positive. Upon 1st walking into apartment noted a very unpleasant smoky/musty odour. Only one sofa in lounge- not great for 4 people sharing. Sleep impossible due to intense heat/no ventilation in bedroom. Only 1 inadequate fan provided- didn't even stir... More

Firstly I must say that the staff were great and did all they could to help. The car park is very secure but at a cost. The apartment was clean, had plenty of space and was fairly well furnished except for the seating in the lounge which comprised one 3 seater sofa - the apartment is for 4 people so... More

Me and my sister stayed here for a night and it was just the right size for the two of us. The apartments have a living/kitchen area, bathroom and one bedroom (we booked for 2 so presumably there are bigger ones) They are very clean and stylish but not much in way of a nice view. The apartments are located... More

It looks good and the prices are attractive but this place is disappointing for accommodation in Manchester. The big lounge window, which is the only source of natural light in the whole apartment, was filthy, the kitchen floor badly in need of repair, the sinks missing plugs and the microwave not working properly. It had a run down feel and... More

Wouldn't stay here again or recommend it. Was run down and rooms were very hot no air conditioning. Washing machine didn't work and you had to be over 6ft to get into the shower. Also lights were all burnt out. Never again

Used Blue Rainbow Apart-hotel as a base last Sunday / Monday because we were doing the Corrie Tour. I don't know if we were just lucky or whether notice had been taken of previous reviews but I have only good things to say about the place. Very clean, spacious and up to date. Everything you would need facility wise...good kitchen... More

Perfectly placed for peace and quite yet 5 mins walk to the night life! Such great value for money if 4 of us had stayed it would have been £20/person/nigh!! £3 taxi to our comedy club night out! Perfect for Coronation street tour .

The apartments are very run down. The photos shown must have been from the opening of the building. Upon checking in to our room, I found it to be sadly lacking in hygiene. From the fridge having mould inside, to blood on the kitchen wall. The curtains over the patio doors were full of water marks which were starting to... More

I arrived at the Blue rainbow apartments and the reception team were ok but nothing i would write home about. I went to my apartment and once i got in it i realised the balcony door had no lock on it, great security. I tryed to plug in my shaver but the shaving point was broke, then to top it... More
