Really ruined a nice two night stay! Was impressed at first until the price sank in £189 for two nights plus £100 deposit, from then I found the service to be acceptable at best, unhelpful! Whilst getting ready to leave the apartment my girlfriend was doing her makeup in the main bathroom, I then proceeded to go into the bathroom... More

My boyfriend thought he was booking us a 5* hotel, imagine our disappointment when we turned up here. The rooms are worn and shabby, a 2* at best. Beautiful views on the bins around the back too, woken up nice and early by the bin men collecting 20 large bins. Bad! Don't waste your money!

Four of us (two couples) shared a two bed two bath apartment for three nights. Two double bedrooms on top, 9th floor, of new apartment block fifty yards from Deansgate station. Good view of the Hilton. One bedroom had small en-suite shower and toilet, apartment had a separate bathroom and toilet. Fully equipped kitchen/diner. All the internal doors squeaked and... More

Booked via lastminute.com using their 'secret hotel' option. I have stayed here previously, and I wasn't disappointed. So when I found out that I would be staying here again, I was delighted. It was booked for my birthday, being near Deansgate it was ideal and everything was walking distance away. The only problem I has was the parking prices £15... More

After paying £120 online for two nights mid week, I was surprised at the quality for the price. Was complimentary upgraded to a two bed, and it had a spacious lounge, en suite and balcony overlooking a gorgeous car park (well it was only £60 a night in Deansgate! Better than no balcony :-D ) Would use again, though I... More

A very nice and tidy apartment and also few minutes away from City Centre, especially if you are a concert goer. Noise is very minimal and definitely will stay here on the next visit to Manchester. The 50% off offer is a great deal to look for which saves a lot of money.

I managed to book this apartment for less than £40 for the night so it was always going to be a bit of a bargain. When we got there the room we'd booked (1 room Exec Suite) wasn't available so they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom. Which was nice but totally unnecessary for us as a couple. When we... More

We stayed at these these apartments last year and got a good deal again last week. We had a room on the 4th floor which was great. The room was spotless. There is not much of view from the lounge area but that did not bother us. Only one minor thing - large stain on the settee that did look... More

These apartments are pretty good though looking dated. A bit out of the way. Most annoying thing is being stung for a whopping parking fine for not parking in the correct bay. Even though I was in the "block" assigned two of the spaces weren't for Blue Rainbow (very obscure signage meant i still didn't believe I had parked in... More

Stopped recently for one night in an executive apartment and having stayed here before in a premium, I would say that I would not choose executive again. I found it to have a smaller living area than the premium so I would save the money and although the executive was on a higher floor I don't think it was worth... More
