This isn't a bad hotel. It's very close to Exchange Quay Metro stop and for Old Trafford, MediaCity etc. At its lowest prices it would be a bargain; at anything more than £50 or £60 you don't get a lot for your money - no kettle in the room (you can pay £1.50 for tea/coffee downstairs), no working TV (on...

We stayed as a couple on a Friday night, located right next to a tram stop so getting about was great. Close to Media City, not far from Manchester city centre. Actual room was an adequate size, a double bed with a single bunk above it. Shower, sink and toilet. Tv with freeview and free Wi-Fi. We didn't have breakfast... More

I have stayed here three time this year and although not as well appointed as "Ibis Red" the location at the end of th M602 @ Salford Keys is ideal for over night stop over or as a cheap tourist base. Park the car and catch the Metrolink tram into the city or as far as Bury Rochdale Eccles or... More

This was my first stay at an Ibis Budget. I was delighted with what I paid for my stay and felt that it was outstanding value for money. The room was clean and had free internet. There was a shower room which was more than adequate and a toilet room off the bedroom. The shower provided plenty of hot water... More

I knew of course that this would be a buget hotel but I confess I had hoped for just a little more, like a softer bed and toiletries. Nonetheless, I spent a comfortable four nights here in a large double room and ensuite. Very clean and relatively quiet, with excellent staff who immediately changed my room when we discovered we...
