I stayed at the Blue Rainbow apartments on a recent trip to Manchester to celebrate my birthday and see Take That. I'd made the booking a long time in advance so when the day approached I was hoping the apartments would live up to expectations. I was not disappointed. We had two double bedroom executive apartments and they offered a... More

We have visited Manchester recently for Take That concert and came all the way down from Ireland. Together with my friends we booked 2 apartments and had a great time. As our flight was early in the morning we arrived to the apartments early but to our surprise we could check in although as told the hotel was fully booked... More

This was the second time I have stayed here and I'm still unable to find a single fault. All emails answered promptly, check in was seamless, staff couldnt be more helpful. Good location only 5 mins in a taxi from Piccadilly or the Deansgate station is just round the corner. We stayed in an executive apartment both times and I... More

For what I would normally pay for a small, single room, what you actually get is a suite. The lobby is spectacular, the rooms are really cool...modern, with views and OUTDOOR balconies. Overall, Blue Rainbow is one of my favourite hotels in the UK, and certainly in Manchester. Read my other reviews....I don't give out compliments easily, but this place... More

For the cost of a (reasonably priced) hotel, we got a 2 x double room apartment with all mod cons - essential when travelling with brother, rather than spouse! No complaints whatsoever in terms of quality and condition of the rooms and fittings. Despite the fact that heating was not on, the rooms were a bit hot and stuffy for... More

I initially book a room at Medlock Apartments in Manchester, just one block closer to the town center. I couldn't find the Medlock entrance, so I asked for help at the Blue Rainbow reception. The receptionists Mr. Haroon and Hamid were very helpful and called several time the Medlock, because my Swiss phone was locked in the UK. It turned... More

Just one night here, and got the apartment at a very reasonable price (their rack rates are ridiculous but it's usually much cheaper). Much more space and facilities than a hotel room, although a few minor drawbacks: all of the doors automatically close so the hallway feels a bit claustrophobic and they close forcibly so even putting something heavy against...

I stayed recently and Blue Rainbow Apartments whilst me and my wife went to the Opera House to watch a show and the stay here made it extra special. We had booked a Premium one bedroom apartment for the night and as we entered the apartment we were surprised how big they were and modern the furniture was. The apartment... More
